For phone users looking for the best mobile plan, you may not want to dismiss the makers of BlackBerry.

Although brands like iPhone, Samsung and LG may be dominating the market for smartphones and other communication devices and proving to be more popular for now, the makers of BlackBerry have released details on the key features of their newest handset, the BlackBerry 10.

Attendees at the BlackBerry World Conference in Florida got a sneak peak at the smartphone when Thorsten Heins, the chief executive of Research In Motion - maker of BlackBerry - unveiled his prototype.

"No one has time to pop in and out of applications every time they want to change an application. We want to use a paradigm that is easy and fast. It's all about the flow."

Features of the BlackBerry 10 include a new smart virtual keypad, advanced camera capabilities and its ability to easily traverse between apps and system setting windows using gestures.

There has been no official date of release announced for Australia - or any other country - and Mr Heins said that Research In Motion is taking its time to make sure that everything is perfect before a release "later this year".
