The device is unlike the earlier versions of Blackberry, and looks like it has adapted to what consumers want today. RIM is coming with its latest operating system Blackberry 10, which has a user interface based on the concept of HUB, PEEK and FLOW.

BlackBerry also announced the Z10 and Q10 smartphones that run BlackBerry 10.
