NEW YORK (AP) -- The first keyboard-equipped BlackBerry with the company's radically new operating system is hitting U.S. stores this week.

The new operating system is meant to help the BlackBerry catch up to the iPhone and Android phones in terms of touchscreen capabilities and third-party software.

Research In Motion Ltd., the Canadian company behind the BlackBerry, launched a keyboard-less phone with the new operating system earlier this year.
