BlackBerry Q10, Blackberry Ltd.
The Q10 is a successful marriage of the modern touch-screen smartphone and the iconic BlackBerry keyboard.
The interface takes time to get used to, and it doesn't have the simple immediacy of the iPhone. But once you learn it, you can positively zip between tasks.
The downside to the new BlackBerry 10 operating system is its relative dearth of third-party software.
In addition, the keyboard eats up space that could be devoted to a bigger screen, leaving the Q10 with a square, 3.1-inch screen.
Nonetheless, the Q10 is likely to be attractive to the BlackBerry faithful, and it deserves serious consideration from Android and iPhone users as well.
