The white Q10 smartphone is now available to pre-order directly through Harvey Norman retail stores and online.

The retailer says any pre-orders of the new smartphone will be delivered directly to a customer's location from Thursday, 29 August.

The standard black model of the BlackBerry Q10 has been selling through telcos Optus and Telstra, and retailers Harvey Norman and JB Hi-Fi since early July.

The Q10 is the first smartphone with a physical, QWERTY keyboard that runs the new BlackBerry 10 operating system. It's just the second BlackBerry 10 device to launch in Australia, following the release of the touchscreen-only Z10 earlier this year.

BlackBerry says the Q10's 3.1in touchscreen is the largest ever on a BlackBerry QWERTY smartphone. However, the presence of the physical keypad cuts into the size of the touchscreen and makes it significantly smaller than most competing smartphones. The screen has a resolution of 720x720, giving it a pixel density of 330ppi.

The BlackBerry Q10 has high-end specifications. The phone is powered by a 1.5GHz dual core Snapdragon processor, has 2GB of RAM and comes with 16GB of internal memory. A microSD card slot allows for memory expansion.

Other features include a micro-HDMI port for connecting the phone to a TV, 4G capabilities, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel front camera.

The BlackBerry 10 operating system powering the Q10 uses a gesture-based interface, which is a departure from previous BlackBerry products.

The software utilises a central "BlackBerry Hub" to manage all messages and notifications and has an advanced multitasking feature called "BlackBerry Flow".
