Do you think BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 is compelling enough for consumers to make the switch?

To revive the flagging Research In Motion, RIM has unveiled a touch-screen phone called “BlackBerry Z10″ and a version with a physical keyboard named “BlackBerry Q10″, both of which will run on BlackBerry 10 operating system (OS).

A last-ditch effort to regain relevance, the company has also announced that it has changed its name to “BlackBerry” by dropping its 25-year-old name.

With plummeting market share, the biggest challenge for BlackBerry will be to win new consumers and retain old ones.

Funny, When many Android smartphones are available for $99, $49 or free —- Z10 will cost you $149 to $199 with a wireless contract.

Do you think BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 is compelling enough for consumers to make the switch rom existing platforms such as Apple Inc. (AAPL) and Google Inc.’s Android?
