Back in QWERTY-dominated ERA blackberry phones were considered to be the status symbol of a person, they were like the Rolls Royce of cell phones. But as “EVERY PRIDE HAS A FALL”, the advent of touch screen era brought many firms on the verge of liquidation, like blackberry and Nokia, etc.
Early BLACKBERRY tried to modify its BB OS into touchscreen, as what Nokia did with Symbian. But the things didn’t change for both of them. As a result Nokia shifted its focus towards WP8 and dump Symbian.
Whereas BLACKBERRY still sticking to its own new heavily gestures based Operating System “BB 10”, which involves a big touchscreen. It provide a great Interface for the users and a dual-core krait CPU, Dual-cores are now old news on Android.
But BB10 and i OS are on the same page in this regard. Both are optimized to run on a very few type of devices. BB 10, in particular, has only one device under his platform until now, so it is allowing the maximum efficiency by hardware.
BLACKBERRY Z10 packs dual core krait CPU, made by Qualcomm which is clocked at 1.5 GHZ, along with the massive RAM of 2GB, so you shouldn’t be out of memory and a GPU of 225 adreno which is quite decent, but not rather surprising.
The touch screen has the diagonal length of 4.2 inches and it is WXGA (768*1280 pixels) display. It has the 355 PPI approximately. It weighs 137.5 grams, which is not the lightest than all, but good.
It has the internal storage capacity up to 16 GB, though a user can increase, because it has a micro-sd card slot. It can support card up to 64 GB, so you don’t have to worry about memory.
Connectivity options in the BLACKBERRY Z10 are quite clear. It has WLAN(wi-fi)802.11 a/b/g/n at dual band. It has the Bluetooth Technology version 4.0 with A2DP and LE. It also supports the micro-USB v2.0 and NFC.
The rear camera on BLACKBERRY Z10 is a 8MP(3264*2448 pixel) autofocus camera and has a LED flash. The secondary camera is of 2MP, which can shoot HD videos at 1080p@30fps. Other camera features include GEO-Tagging, Face Detection and Image Stabilization, etc.
Others features of BLACKBERRY Z10 are Push E-Mail, IM, BBM (Blackberry Messenger)6, a browser which supports HTML5. GPS is also there with A-GPS support. This phone supports JAVA with MIDP 2.1. It is available in white and black colors.
Other features include SNS Integration, HDMI Port, BLACKBERRY Maps (which are even bad than Apple Maps), Organizer, Document Viewer, Photo viewer. Audio supported formats are mp3/WMA/WAV/eAAC+ and above all FLAC player. Supported Video formats are bDivX/XviD/MP4/WMV and H.263/H.264 player. It packs a Li-Ion 1800 mAH battery in it.
As always blackberry carried its care for its business customers but now gave a spark of fun in it. “BLACKBERRY WORLD” still Fell short of Google Play, iOS Counterpart and even shorter than Windows App Store. BB 10 still has a long way, let’s see how far this effort goes! Thanks for reading for this review.
