I think this will be great and would love to find out if this is available
in the US and which carriers the device is on.

While I applaud them for getting this technology forward, I wonder why it’s only the z models getting this? Seems the Q series would serve visually impaired people better. I know most folks will adapt, but if a screenreader became available for the Q10, I’ve be taking another look at Blackberry for sure. There’s just nothing quite like those physical keyboards. YMMV.

Personally, I would love to see this on the Q Series of the BlackBerry 10 devices. I have to agree with Pete on this. While the touch screen is extremely easy to adapt to overall given the availability of phones with touch screens on both the Android and the Apple sides of the coin, having a phone with an available QWERTY keyboard would make things I think that much more simplified for individuals who like both touch screen as well as physical keyboard devices.
