    The screen size for the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone (the first BlackBerry 10 touch device) is 768 x 1280 pixels. However, future BlackBerry smartphones will have the following screen sizes:

    All-touch smartphones: 720 x 1280 pixels (16:9 aspect ratio)
    Smartphones with a physical keyboard: 720 x 720 pixels (1:1 aspect ratio)

    Question : Why didn't they go with 720 x 1280 for the Z10 ? What effect does this change have on App availability?

    IIRC, they already had the 768 screens in development and manufacturing before they settled on 720. App developers were told of this ahead of time (and was part of the SDKs) and are supposed to have an extra 48 columns of pixels (24 on each side) as a buffer in their app displays (or something to that effect). That way, you won't really lose anything when moving to the 720 screen.
