Research In Motion's (RIM) BlackBerry 10 (purportedly called the Z10) will be launched tonight and it will decide the fate of the Canadian telecommunication company. Can RIM make the greatest comeback in tech history or completely vanish into oblivion? As the world waits with bated breath, we tell you what exactly to expect from this phone.

Full touch
It's the first time RIM has made a full touch phone. The other touch phones have always come with a keypad, making them of the touch & type variety. Whether the Z10 will have a functional virtual keypad that is as good as the ones provided by Samsung and Apple will come to light only after we take a good look at it and use it for a couple of days.

Specifications
The phone that will determine RIM's future in the smartphone market is expected to have a 4.2-inch 720p display, a dual-core processor at 1.5GHz, a 8-megapixel external camera and a 2 megapixel front camera, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory. It is also expected to have a radio, which is not found in any BlackBerry phones except the BB Curve 8530.

BlackBerry Hub
The stunning phone is expected to have a 'hub', a centralized mechanism that will have all of your e-mails, messages, and social media stored in one location.

BlackBerry Flow
The 'Flow' will help in faster navigation and make multi-tasking and switching between screens easier.

BlackBerry Balance
One of its most interesting features is the 'Balance' feature that will enable your phone to take on two personalities- a secure one for your work and a personal one for your friends, family and socializing.
