    Do we know exactly how much bigger the keys are ? It would be fantastic if they were 30% bigger but I don't see how that is possible since the width of the Q10 is only marginally wider.

    If I remember correctly, BlackBerry claims they are 30-percent larger than the 9900.

    Ok I did find this interview with BB Exec:


    "What allows us to get that extra size is we've replaced the home key, the back key and the send/end keys, since everything in BB10 is controlled by gestures and direct manipulation of the data. Without the curve, each key is the same size, and they're 3% larger."

    So I guess we can close this thread 3% not 30%.

    I don't think that image shows them scaled properly...

    Here's a photo from another thread that shows the Q10 side by side with a 9900... Q10 keys are noticeably wider...

    please don't quote mashable, that site sucks. LOL (as in, they tend to produce any negative press about BlackBerry and prop up anything iPhone related)
