Canadian Tire began issuing thousands of Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) Q10 smartphones to corporate employees in Toronto on Monday after rolling out Z10 models weeks earlier. The overwhelming majority of the company’s 3,000 corporate users wanted the Q10 with its QWERTY keyboard as a replacement for older Bold or Curve devices, said Eugene Roman, chief technology officer at Toronto-based Canadian Tire, in an interview. So far, hands down, the biggest value of the new Z10 and Q10 smartphones has been their long battery life, providing 10 to 12 hours on a single charge, Roman said. “With 10 to 12 hours of battery life, that’s double of every other device we’ve tried,” he said. “It’s efficient on the network and still has good security. The battery life is the winner. I have a couple of iPhones, but I can’t live on them.”
