News Summary: BlackBerry keyboard lovers rejoice! New Q10 with real keys finally hits stores

KEYBOARD LOVERS REJOICE! Months after a touchscreen version hit stores, BlackBerry's newest smartphone with physical keyboard, the Q10, is now on sale in the U.S.

WHERE TO FIND IT: T-Mobile USA began selling the BlackBerry Q10 on Wednesday. Verizon, AT&T and Sprint also have plans to sell the Q10.

MARKET ADVANTAGE: RIM's rivals have largely abandoned efforts at making smartphones with physical keyboards, an area RIM long has been strong in. Colin Gillis, an analyst at BGC Partners, says the keyboard version has a much greater chance at success than the Z10 touch version, since RIM's base has always favored the keyboard.
