BlackBerry Z10


$599.00 Released January, 2013

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Isolated enterprise/consumer environments that can be switched easily. The enterprise side can be control by IT dept. Runs some Android apps. Feels nice in the hand with a comfortable, rubbery back.

The Cons:Bare-bones map app. Can't manually keep widgets on home. It's limited to the last used 8 apps. In spite of running some Android apps and strong developer push, BB still falls behind iOS/Android in available apps (no Instagram, no Netflix, no Pinterest, etc.).

The BlackBerry Z10 is a long-awaited device from RIM, which, along with the simultaneously announced Blackberry Q10, marks the beginning of RIM's official company rebranding and renaming to "BlackBerry".

Product Shot 2 Announced on January 30th, 2013, these two devices are also the first to feature the BlackBerry 10 (aka BB10) operating system that has initially shown to the public in May 2012 that was met with a negative reaction in RIM's share price. BB10 is developed based on the QNX platform which RIM acquired in 2010. The Z10 is a multi-touch touchscreen with an on-screen keyboard, whereas the Q10 has a keyboard.

Erik: #blackberry_z10 Wow! It's finally here. I like the isolation of the consumer and enterprise environments. However, I think it falls in a no-man's land between iPhone and Android. More thoughts later... Jan 31, 13
