I am really surprised with Blackberry's marketing tactics, be it James Chen or his predecessors. It is already April & there is no proper update at all on Z3, no wonder Android has taken over the entire smartphone market due to slow marketing of BB & keeping prospective customers waiting.
I think this phone should be a good product from the BB stable, hope to buy one ASAP, provided they launch this month end, else will go for Nokia X.
launch the phone already. or at least give some updates/news about this phone. make some noise.
Anonymous, 08 Apr 2014now is april when it coming to jakarta?yea when is z3 comming its april now
yeah WP Phones is not altenative to android and now nokia has cool so that they have android in nokia x series this means that even them self they have no confidence with the WP Phones
Anonymous, 12 Apr 2014Why would anyone buy this mediocre phone compared to what's available. In addition to the very... moreI happen to enjoy the range that BlackBerry World has to offer nothing redundant and simple to navigate. No useless ads pop up whilst browsing like android market
Why dont they release it already, at least out the details? I hope it will support HSDPA 850MHz and maybe also 1900, too many budget smartphones support only 900 and 2100.
I am using BB Z10 as my daily driver and it is awesome. Believe it not not but Z3 is going to be a great device and BB OS is really fast and bug free and you can also run Android apps on it.
Aadrian, 15 Apr 2014It will be launched in Indonesia first, not sure if it will be launched in other countries aft... moreIm quite sure we will see it in most of Asia, and im gonna buy one. Not for myself, i have Z10, but to get more household members away from Google's evilness.
Already changed our tablet to iPad Air (shocked how useless the Samsung tablet was, it was only collecting dust, nobody wanted to use the thing, for good reasons), changed my phone to BB, now moving on to getting the rest of the cellphones in the house away from Google and over to iOS or BB10 and i find BB10 to be better than iOS and much cheaper, Z3 seems like the perfect thing to get something better than the current Android phones in use here, and for a lower price.
Hope Z3 can make the excellence of BB10 more known around the world, its a shame that most people still think that WP is the best alternative to Android.
gideon silaen, 15 Apr 2014heyy, it's Indonesian language on sample picture :DIt will be launched in Indonesia first, not sure if it will be launched in other countries after that.
15792, 14 Apr 2014i love z3,it is enough for me,but will be better if it has 4gThey are going to release a 4g LTE version of the phone later on.
I just hard to configure all explain.this is blackberry not same like other.and should be different even technology is same,why I said it is,coz the OS different so let's hands the phone first and make review after.lol.......

1.5GB RAM for unparalleled multitasking and smooth performance in its class, a CPU that is more than powerful enough for BB10 OS (better than all quadcore midrange androids, look how fast and smooth the non-LTE version of BB Z10 is with only a 1.5GHz dualcore Cortex A9), a good camera with LED flash (which means Nokia Lumia offers no competitors), big display of good quality (exactly what they want in the targeted markets these days) that has adequate resolution for this price class, many competitors are only 800x480!
Z3 seem to be right on its target, plus it offers too much in terms of performance, its gonna be the most powerful value device by far.
Still, i advice people to not wait for this and buy BB Z10 if its still possible to find, Z3 will be a bit cheaper but Z10 is after all a high end device priced below many useless samsung midrange offerings.
Why would anyone buy this mediocre phone compared to what's available. In addition to the very lousy blackberry app market
when it come in market .i need a smart phone.plzz tell me when it comes & mention it price. thanks.
