Over half of the U.S. Fortune 500 companies are testing or already using BlackBerry's new line of devices, the company revealed in an interview today.

In an interview promoting the launch of the company's new keyboard-equipped Q10 smartphone, BlackBerry COO Kristian Tear told Reuters the majority of top US firms are testing it's new devices.

The Q10 is being rolled out across all major US carriers, a big win for the beleagured manufacturer.

"This is a very exciting day for us, launching with all four major U.S. carriers," Tear said.

Tear said the Canadian-based company expected the Q10 to allow it to win back customers who had fallen to Google or Apple.

"Since everybody is migrating toward this, we expect it will definitely create pull for our (smartphone) products," he said.

"There are a lot of very loyal BlackBerry keyboard users out there who have been waiting for this and I think, with the Q10, we will also be able to win back prior BlackBerry customers, who are now trying other platforms."

Meanwhile lackBerry has a new flagship phone in the works called the A10, according to online reports.

US tech news site CNET is saying it's going to be BlackBerry’s new "super phone", replacing the current Z10 model.

The device is rumoured to be all-touchscreen and will occupy the "highest tier" of BlackBerry's portfolio, moving the Q10 and Z10 to mid-tier.
