Android Port Of British Airways App Now Available Z10 and Q10

The Android port of the British Airways app is now available of BlackBerry World.  Many legacy devices run the app and so will the Z10 Q10/5 devices.  Since the screen size for the Q10 and Q5 are similar, all Q10 apps will automatically run on the Q5 devices without loss of data display due to a smaller screen.  From the BlackBerry World site:

How is The Q10 Selling at T-Mobile?

IMG_00001047IMG_00001053

Yesterday, I visited a local T-Mobile store that I have been to in the past, when the Z10 launched.  The Q10, unlike the Z10 was prominently displayed on a center store table with the other hot phones.  I was told that the Q10 is doing much better than the Z10 and that one Q10 was selling for every four Samsung Galaxy S4 phones.  The sales people agreed that BlackBerry has a unique market with the Q10 and that many die hard physical QWERTY users are loving the new phone and asking for it.IMG_00001051

TeaTimer and Q10

business apps

Redesign Layout Homescreen for Q10

Q10 has less space available: 720×720 instead of 768×1280. It’s worth rethinking the layout. Some screens worked out-of-the-box, but the startscreen got a redesign for Q10.

first decisions:

  • Moving the DropDown on top over the images
  • Making the ActionBar as Overlay to avoid distortion of images.

q10-layout-01

You have to reserve 96 Pixel for the DropDown UI Control.
