    I'm a long time Blackberry user currently using a 9810. I've been like a lot of folks, waiting for the Q10 to decide between that and the Z10. i recently tried typing on the Z10 and actually thought i could probably switch to touch screen for the first time. Does anyone know why they chose to downgrade the screen res from the Z10? this seems kind of major but i haven't read anything about it anywhere. It's something that's leading me more towards the touch screen so far. as clunky as the 9810 (and 9800 before that) is, i have to say, it spoiled me in terms of having a big screen AND a great keyboard. I'd hate to go forward and right away sacrifice screen res after waiting so long for a new phone.

    The only reason why the screen res is lower for the Q10 is because of the design of the phone. The screen is a 3.1 incher at 1:1 ratio, compared to a 4.2 inch at 16:9. Would of had to make the screen a fair bit longer and wider (sacrificing one handed utility) to make it anywhere close to 16:9(with the keyboard of course)

    So does that ratio mean the actual resolution on the Q10 is comparable to the Z10?
