Since the arrival of the Blackberry Smartphone, mobile devices have been revolutionized into a new category of technology in the early millennium that would forever change the landscape of the cell phone. After a lengthy waiting process, Blackberry (formerly Research in Motion) has unveiled its latest iteration of the Blackberry handsets, the Z10 and the Q10.
