At Mobile World Conference in Barcelona this week, struggling smartphone maker BlackBerry (NASDAQ: BBRY  ) announced a pair of BlackBerry 10 devices. The two new mid-range phones, named the Q20 and the Z3, are very different from a style perspective. The Q20 is a QWERTY model that brings back the trackpad and some physical buttons, while the Z3 will be the all-touchscreen follow up to the Z10, which performed rather poorly with consumers.
