BlackBerry Z10: The RIM Resurrection

The BlackBerry Z10 is a brand new smartphone from RIM, sporting the company’s long-awaited BlackBerry 10 operating system. Having finally been unleashed after months of delays, and amidst reports of plummeting sales, the Z10 is set to become the most popular device from BlackBerry to date.

So, with all eyes watching the Canadian smartphone manufacturer to see if it will prosper or fail, we weigh up whether the BlackBerry Z10 has what it takes to herald the resurrection of RIM…

Design demands

Smartphone design has moved on a great deal since the days when QWERTY keyboards were prevalent, and thankfully new BlackBerry device is sleek and modern, looking similar to the iPhone 5. Boasting a 4.2-inch multi-LCD display, the handset’s screen offers really sharp detailed images with impressive colour saturation.

 BBM sharing

When it comes to functionality, the BlackBerry 10 operating system is packed full of features that set it apart from Android and iOS. Features such as Screen Share, which allows users to share whatever is on their screen with the person they’re on a BBM video call with. For example, you can share holiday snaps whilst calling your parents back home.

Balancing act

Another key feature is BlackBerry Balance, which splits the user interface into two separate profiles for business and personal use. This means that BlackBerry Z10 owners will only need one device for work communications and whatnot, as well as personal stuff.

 So, all this sounds great, but is the BlackBerry Z10 the device to save RIM from falling even further down the mobile manufacturer rankings? We think its unique features, combined with the slick new design, could see the BlackBerry Z10 will being a big hit with advocates of the brand and also attracting new followers along the way.

    et’s wait until the official US release and then you can say what ever you want. Just bashing something before it comes out is far too early.

    The Best thing About this Phone is it’s OS. Like other Mobile phone companies BB has adapted few changes with a New OS.

    Z10 looks impressive but i think blackberry took too much time to launch this device… Android and ios are ruling market and no doubt that BB os is looks impressive but it really gotta fight prove itself..

    I loved Z10 for its design and nice metallic look but still BB yet to get leading apps and games. That would be a major drawback.

    Blackberry Z10 is an amazing phone if you are concerned about the looks of your phone and want to have a smartphone full of wonderful features. It cannot be compared to other Blackberry phones as per me. If given an option to choose any one from all other Blackberry phones, it will be a pleasure to choose Z10.

    Blackberry has tried something new in its OS and this device will be in high demand in the market in the upcoming days. This device has a stunning look and is pretty nice.

    Z10 is a good phone, but I prefer the Q10 becuase of the availability of a key pad on it.
