The Z10 is a very important phone for Blackberry. After the name change from Research in Motion, the Blackberry Z10 has a lot on in shoulders. If it fails to pull up the sales, the brand might actually disappear. Let us take a look at what the Blackberry Z10 has for its end-users:
The Z10, as expected, is professional look and stylistically muted. Its monochrome body only has a chrome brand logo for a highlight plus some aluminum buttons. One may also notice that the phone has some similarities with the iPhone 5 but the Z10′s face is broken up by a bands on the top and bottom that form the rim of the body.
The Z10 features a removable backplate with a rubberized coating hugging the plastic cover. It may save the phone from slipping but it does not go with the prestige branding the company wants to have for this phone.
Under the hood you have the 1.5GHz MSM8960 Qualcomm dual-core CPU coupled with a 2GB RAM.
The BlackBerry Z10 has a 4.2-inch display with a 1280×768 resolution. It measures at 130 x 66 x 9.3mm. It has a 2MP front-facing camera while the main camera on the rear is a very capable 8MP unit.
The BlackBerry 10 operating system is a big leap fromt eh BB7. It has a very modern feel in most aspects. It relies heavily on gestures to control the user interface and allows for heavy multi-tasking. The apps come up on a grid unlike the iOS that allows for creating folders and re-arranging.
There is also the BlackBerry Hub that lists all of your connectivity options. The list can be quite intimidating at first but after a while, you can make most of it to keep up with everything.
The BlackBerry Z10 is a very nice looking and capable phone. Sadly, there is nothing new that will make it stand out from the leader of the segment. Productivity wise, the BB10 OS can make its loyal fan base fall in love with it all over again.
