Why not BB adopted Android Platform to improved their smartphone features ?
Build quality and materials used in this fon are exceptional . BB Z30 is by far one of the best few out there.
Blackberry Z30...... Yes, i agree woth most of you, hardware is not on par with Android or IOS devices. We all are to familiar with the loading clock on the previous BB7 devices, but you try to look up your corporate directory in the same manner than on a blackberry, and you soon realize that maybe hardware is not all you need. Android and IOS needs to up their game in the corporate sector. Blackberry has a corporate server that integrates with the company's email and calendar services. Where are those services from the Android and IOS?
Also, lets not forget how many people using Android and IOS devices cannot wait for BBM.
Yes, kids want to take vids and share fotos on facebook and so on and so forth, but the people(parents) paying for all those toys you so enjoy are probably using a Blackberry because it makes good business sense.
I posted this from my Iphone 5, which in the corporate sector does not come close to the Blackberry I had. Will be getting the Z30 as soon as it arrives.
I think Blackberry has really tried with this device. It would have been a world beater if it was made in 2011 so.. bad timing. Samsung, Apple, LG are all ahead with specs already.
Worth Waiting for this Handset, I used bold & Torch 9800 earlier and understand what blackberry can deliver. I shall certainly buy this.
hey bb, make apps worthy and working as well, your appworld is wa tto far from samsung and iphone,,,
AnonD-126109, 18 Sep 2013Only 1 word for bb, 'HORIBLE'. In era of fUll hd display nd quad core processor, bb has stuck... moreIt's only a 5" screen and FullHD is pointless at this size. This screen is already retina (at least if it's the same RGB AMOLED as in the DROID ULTRA/MAXX, not if it's pentile).
Upping the resolution would only drain the battery faster, and require more from the hardware. That, and because this is running a very efficient system, it does not requre S800 or similar to give stellar performance.
In the age of quad core and octa core bb is running around dual core, not worth buying. Only its design and looks are beautiful
err...how about google maps, I cant install on Q5 direct from google. (talk about os 10.2)
eean, 18 Sep 2013I never used blackberry,but saw it, i think it's like windowsphone, limited apps .it's for pro... moreNot true - this argument about apps is rubbish - it is the 95/5 rule, that is, 5% of the apps have 95% of the market. We will get this device, because we need security in business, and not all the superfluous software and junk on Android
