Here in Kenya BBerry is officially dead,only for a few old forks who still believe in BB. Samsung rules Sony follows,NOKIA Is struggling to come back. Iphone people dont by is due to hardware limitations ie, Bluetooths does not pair with other Phone or it does not work at all.
They also use outdated hardware n selle as new expensive. These being 2013 BB Could have learned from previours short comings to better than this,in terms of battery n CPU clock speed n screen resolution as well.
I must say i have to get my hands on the Z10, i just love it and cant wait to get it, blackberry is back but still have a lot of work to do.
LSDouglas, 03 Feb 2013Does any one know if Google Maps js/will be available on BB OS 10? Will there will an app? ... moreI ported Google Navigation which includes Google Maps on the Dev Alpha and it works flawless. It responds fast and uses the GPS/A amazingly and accurate. It isn't in BlackBerry World officially. Not sure if it will make it there or not.
Zack25, 03 Feb 20131800mah is such a weak battery. I wonder how long this phone can last. Sorry but your argument isn't strong enought. I have a small engine in my car but it is quite efficient. My neighbor has a truck with twice the size of an engine but I'm able to drive much farther before I run out of gas. Think of BB10 as a much more efficient engine that doesn't require a humungus gas tank.
Anonymous, 03 Feb 2013weak in bateryFor your information: unless you have played with the Z10 gold OS for over a week, there is no way you could make that comment. Those that had the Z10 were given pre-units with unfinialised software. Though the battery is 1800mAh, what a lot of people do not know is that BlackBerry 10 has been optimised with the hardware so the integration is much tighter than that from legacy devices.
Naziem13, 03 Feb 2013some people in here give stupid reviews. the batterie last longer then i phone. has more apps,... moreCorrection: That would be 356ppi. That is literally the highest yet than any other mobile despite it having a 4.2" screen compared to the 5" screens that have large viewing areas and poor graphics delivery.
Might not be a great phone but one thing I know blackberry is always one step ahead. This baby's navigation system is amazing and has no onboard keys if you notice. Watch the others copy this
I had a look online, then in EE, O2 and Carphone Warehouse. Have compared instore with SIII. In the end, I have got my phone for £30 on a £27.90 per month tarrif with unlimited mins+texts+500mb data. Expect my phone in a couple of days.
Admittedly, aps aren't as largely available on Z10. However, I believe you can still sideload all major ones. As I have Kindle (sideloaded) on my playbook without issue, I have everything I really want.
Also SIII camera def better than z10 so if you want to make this a consideration, do so.
However a major point about z10 is that if you have a playbook than you can connect to the internet wherever you are on your tablet via your phone. As such, neither samsung or apple offer this. I have a wifi only 64gb playbook which was bought for £230 (30th b'day present). If you combine all these costs over a 2 year period that comes to about £930, roughly £38.75 a month. I doubt Samsung or Apple can even come close to doing this at present.
Bb z_10 is not just my type,the battery's poor and I use my battery for many things through out d day.it doesn't last Wen it comes to battery and it's oleo-phobic coating is poor
[deleted post]blackberry has more, it has z10 apps and android apps
when this be available in PAKISTAN??? huh???
em waiting .... please be quick.....
some people in here give stupid reviews. the batterie last longer then i phone. has more apps, because u can add android apps. BB10 runs on android apps also. The proccers is very fast. html5 is the fastest then any phone even faster then pc's. it has 335ppi graphics. more pixel rate then any other phone. has more ram then iphone 2GB. front cam is 2MP. and so on
i used to spend tons of money on phones. not any more. this phone is over $1100? i doubt people will flock to other cheaper options. cost is the cause if it does not sell not the device design or software. i went for LGO4X HD it is $365 unlocked @ PLEMIX.COM
Always been with BB. A top phone top battery life some iphone friends admitted it was cool too.
Better then I expected.

Everyone bow down and pay your respects to the pioneers of smart-phones.
Ever since purchasing my first Blackberry Bold 9780 (in 2010) my businesses productivity / profitability went "up" through the roof.
I will definately be buying either the Z10 or the Q10.
For all those iPhone / Android / Samsung / HTC purchasers....you should all be ashamed of yourselves for potentially bring such a "God of a company" to its early demise, with those slick useless features. How you iPhone / Android / Samsung / HTC owners/considerer's/purcahsers are all "childish fools", please excuse my passion.
Without "Blackberry" we would all be lost within the Apple and Samsung nonsense; clearly Apple/Samsung owners are shallow / insecure people for them to accept style over pure Blackberry "substance"
The processor it isn't the MSM8960. It is the snapdragon MSM8960T PRO with Adreno 320 graphics!
