    The Z3 "Jakarta" touchscreen BB10 phone for emerging markets was announced today. Available from April starting in Indonesia.

    Lower specs than Z10, but the screen is bigger and it has FM radio. List price less than $200, compared to the $600 the Z10 started at.

    The "classic" QWERTY (+touchscreen) Q20 BB10 phone which brings back the trackpad and function keys many people clamoured for will also come out this year. This seems to be an upgrade compared to the Q10, although not much is known.

    Poor Blackberry lol, maybe they'll get lucky and grow again on the cheap phone craze. Doubt it though, their embarrassing decline is definitely going to end up in some business books one day

    I do like that the "belt" is back. It makes sense on the keyboard phones. I wish blackberry the best of luck as their OS is actually extremely well done. Its a shame that no ones buying it.

    What are the specs of the Z3 ? Given the Z10 is hardly pushing hard in the spec wars and is decidedly mid-low range by comparison to android handsets.
