Nobody can deny the fact that Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) has struggled as of late to keep pace with the top players in the smartphone space. That being said, the company is doing an admirable job getting back into the conversation.
With its new operating system, combined with two new smartphones, consumers at least have something to think about if considering this company. BlackBerry still faces an uphill battle, but at least the company finds itself in position to compete with the rest of the industry.
Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) has put a lot of hopes in its Q10 smartphone. The device has sold quite well in the United Kingdom as well as Canada. Soon enough, we will get a better idea of what it can do in the United States.
Although the initial reviews of the Q10 were strong, it is hard to say exactly what this smartphone has to offer until you spend some time with it. This is why we want to take a closer look at a story published by CrackBerry.com: One month in with the BlackBerry Q10.
As you work through this story, you will find that the author is pretty impressed with the overall performance of the Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) BlackBerry Q10.

The word prediction and auto correct help a ton and I can type faster on the Z10 than any other virtual keyboard out there.

This is exactly the type of reaction Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) was hoping for. The company wanted to get back to its roots, and with a physical keyboard in the Q10 it has done just that.
What about the downside of this device? Here is one of the first things that is pointed out:
