After months of work and numerous delays two new BlackBerry phones were unveiled Wednesday.
The Q-10 and Z-10 were on display at a media event in New York City.
The Q-10 has a physical keyboard, while the Z-10 will have a touchscreen.
Both phones use new BlackBerry 10 software, which includes a number of enhancements like a speedier device, improved typing experience and the ability to keep work and personal identities separate on the same phone.
The first devices will hit the market in mid-March and will sell for about $150 with a three year service contract.
The BlackBerry 10 was supposed to come out in early 2012, but then the company delayed the release twice, missing the lucrative holiday sales season.
Research in Motion, the phones' maker, also announced it's changing its name to BlackBerry to maintain a single brand.
