    Oh man, I'm in a bit of a dilemma now...I had the Z10 from launch day and absolutely loved it, did everything I should on it (and some things I shouldn't), and feel I have at last found the one phone I can peacefully use for a full contractual term. But the battery, the only thing that got me thinking about the Q10, felt horrible contrary to what people were having, and that had me thinking about getting the Q10.

    Now that it is up for pre order, I'm suddenly having physical keyboard pinings (and I said once here on the forums, a little naively I think, that someone would have to pry my BlackBerry Bold 9900 from my cold dead hands)...

    Should I just plunk down the cash? Lol

    Do it.
    Life is too short not to be using the phone you really want.

    Buy the Q10.
    Decide which one you really like best. Z10 or Q10
    After a month when you have made your decision, sell one and recoup most of your purchase price.

    One question: Screen Size...would watching videos on it be horrible? Anyone used the phone to watch UFC broadcasts yet?

    I'd say go for it, if you don't like it then return or sell it?

    I've had a BBQ10 for a few weeks now (coming from a 9300) and I haven't really had any issues at all, things are just done differently on the new OS. Some functions are missing from BBOS 7, but if you already rock a Z10 you already know this and probably are already familiar with the new operating system.

    tl;dr buy a Q10, worst case you hate it and return/sell, best case you love it

    If you come into a Q10 forum to ask if you should buy a Q10, I think you've made up your mind already. In case you need an additional push, we're happy to help.....go for it! I can't wait to get on a piece of modern hardware/OS with the soft clickity-clack of a 'berry doing what it does best.

    The Q10 does get more battery life than the Z10. Give the Q10 and try then you will know 100% for yourself.

    is there a Q10 for n00bs guide anyone found particularly helpful? I'll be starting from scratch with both the Q10 and BB10, and would like to do some reading during the wait.

    I know search is available here, but I'm looking for a guide or guides either internal to CB or external on Al Gore's Amazing Internet in which people have found the best value. Thanks!

    OP - not trying to threadjack you, just didn't know if this deserved its own thread. Any suggestions can be sent via PM or PIN to keep the thread on-topic. thanks again.

    yes. i was annoyed with typing on the z10. on the q10, i'm flying.

    videos are fine. i watch a bunch of youtube videos. i've never watched a long movie though (well, i've never watched a long movie on any phone. that's why you have a playbook!)

    Would it be weird not being able to watch videos in landscape mode as they would on a Z10?

    Assuming you can only do so in portrait on the Q10, of course.

    Hey there; as others have noted: worst case scenario you have to resell it, best case scenario, you love it.

    I've been rocking the Q10 for a couple days now and have been loving it.
    As far as videos go, is it awesome? No, but it is usable. The screen isn't large but it is clear. Watching youtube, etc is no problem. As far as full movies, it wouldn't be my choice, but the Z10 wouldn't be either
    Just my two cents,
    If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask!

    I'm in the same boat. I am loving my Z10 device, except everytime I look in my drawer and see my sexy 9900 collecting dust, I pick it up and love the size and feel and look of it. I'm thinking of making the switch but still really enjoying the Z. Tough choice. It's like I'm thinking of cheating on the Z, with my long lost mistress the Q.

    Some people were worried maybe the Q10 would be too similar to the 9900, but I'm glad you ain't one of the them. Kudos

    Haha! I am exactly like you. Every time I pick up my 9900 I just love the real feel of a keyboard and the design. I just want Q10 but the Z10 got really cheap now and selling it would be worthless as the Q10 is still around 550. The other worry is that people would think it is a cheap old BlackBerry or something like that.
