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!
The screen size of this phone might cheat you, 4.2,inch screen is a bit to small in all that phone buddy, nice try BB!
Does any one know if Google Maps js/will be available on BB OS 10?
Will there will an app?
And if it available via browser, what is it's featureset?
I think this is one exciting phone to discover. I've been a Blackberry user for almost 2 years now. So far this is the only brand I find myself holding on to for a long time. Blackberry Z10 is a major leap! I can;t wait to get my hands on this one! Kudos Blackberry!
From just watching the hands on video, I am impressed with the OS. I'll just hold from buying for now. I need a bigger sibling of Z10. Perhaps Z11 with width 90mm. 4.2' is still small. I don't like zooming all the time.
So Blackberry, listen. Give us size varieties. If you are producing a 4.2' phone in another 5 years, I will know what you are doing, you are forcing us to buy and you are not giving us choices just like the other phone manufacturer which I bought 2 different models which I don't need because of the tiny size. I won't be tempted this time.
