BlackBerry Z10 does away with the keyboard

With a touch screen and new operating system, will the BlackBerry Z10 replace the iPhone for some users?

The camera shoots great photos, and the screen quality is amazing — although I'm comparing it to my old iPhone 3GS and its 3-megapixel camera.

If you're toting the latest iPhone, it will be comparable with a slightly larger screen.

But one peek into the BlackBerry World app store, and I knew it just couldn't replace my iPhone. The lack of apps (especially free or cheap apps) is stunning when you are used to Apple. My two boys, who are 4 and 2 years old, wanted to try out the phone as well, and I struggled to find a game for them to play. “Angry Birds Star Wars” was only fun for a minute. I'm not trading in my iPhone just yet.
