Sounds like the Q20 is going to be the device to beat for some time. It sounds fantastic.
Netflix and instagram both work on 10.2.1. Have it on mine. Downloaded through 1market
Wew! I love all the good news here about BlackBerry. The low cost BlackBerry Z3 full touch screen is awesome and I want to get this asap to give all my family and relatives so that they will able to experience the powerful and very secure OS in the world. Also I like the idea of Sir Chen for bringing back the classic Trackpad although I don't like it for the next gen BlackBerry 10 devices it's because some of the users are still hungry to see the trackpad. Great work Sir Chen you made the loyal customers more happy for these.

Anonymous, 25 Feb 2014blackberry 10 most apks dont workThe common ones do:
Instagram (We have iGrann)
Vine (We have Whine)
Dead Trigger 2
Chaos Rings 2
Farm Heroes Saga
Temple Run 1,2 and OZ
Pet Rescue Saga
My Talking Tom
Simpsons Tapped Out
Plants VS Zombies 2
I have the Z30 and all those apps work flawlessly with 10.2.1 and the ability to install APK directly :)
For a low cost phone meant for emerging markets, this looks really nice. Blackberry has been making some smart moves with new CEO at the helm. In 100 days, he has managed to double the stock. This looks to be one of the biggest come backs in the history of tech if he pulls this off.
JamesZick, 25 Feb 2014i love blackberry.. but if i cant use instagram nvm...You can use Instagram on BB10. Just download the apk from the Play Store or install Snap/Amazon App Marketplace on your BB10 device and get it from there, and you're set with Instagram (or any other Android app for that matter).
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2014looks like xperia z... lol i might return to blackberry if... i dont have to side swipe all... moreYou can get the app called SNAP which gives direct access to google play store with all the apps.
JamesZick, 25 Feb 2014i love blackberry.. but if i cant use instagram nvm...it has three instagrams: igrann, blackgram, and can install android instagram easily through an appstore or web
JamesZick, 25 Feb 2014i love blackberry.. but if i cant use instagram nvm...We have iGrann (You can download it on BB World) which is a fully functional NATIVE client for instagram and it actually runs better than instagram itself :) or if you can install the APK (Android file) for instagram directly to your phone...:)
JamesZick, 25 Feb 2014i love blackberry.. but if i cant use instagram nvm...You can use instagram on BlackBerry 10 :)
This is exactly what i wanted!
I was hesitating in going for Q5 bcos of its small screen. 3.5" n a qwerty are the best combination!
But, BB please dont price it too high like Z30 or ur again gonna be a flop show. BB10 OS is d best, now android apps can be installed and the best thing of bb- The HUB. Juz love it. I used to be an android fan, until i started using the z10. Ditched the cheap samsung android and switched to a premium bb.
Under 200 usd eah..
This one will sweep the emerging markets..
They should market it properly though about the android app compatability..
Most secure os with the biggest selection of apps looks my cup of coffee..
daddy dila, 25 Feb 2014@Eddie that's so true samsung as big as it is...brings out galaxy note 4 or S 4 nd half as s5.... moreWell in case you did not know, The BB 10 OS supports Android Apps as well...You can download them via the Amazon appstore or the Snap. Its basically a dual OS within one phone.
