BlackBerry Z10: Easier to use than Android with loads of features
Diehard BlackBerry fans cheered when BlackBerry unveiled its first phone to run on BlackBerry 10 operating system. BlackBerry, the Canadian-based firm, rebranded itself shedding its old name Research in Motion (RIM) announced two versions of its new series one with touchscreen (BlackBerry Z10) and the other with a keyboard (BlackBerry Q10). We did mentioned in our earlier post about BlackBerry 10 and provided some sneak picks about the new model.
BlackBerry Z10 is the touchscreen version which is very similar to the other smartphones available in the market. Display with 4.2inch screen gives a resolution of 1268 x 768 pixels i.e. 768 pixels per inch. The BlackBerry Z10 is easier to use than Android and more powerful, giving faster access to e-mails, tweets, facebook updates and messages. The Z10 has 16GB on inbuilt memory. Unlike the iPhone, the BlackBerry Z10 will allow user to extend the storage with microSD card slot. It sports a chip letting the phone act as a credit card at few payment terminals and share data wirelessly when tapped against some other phones. BlackBerry Z10 comes with handsome cameras with 8MP on back and 2MP on the front. The rear camera can record is a 1080p high definition camera while the front has 720p resolution.
One more good thing about the BlackBerry Z10 is its battery life. The talk time is upto 10hrs on 3G. Upto 60 hours of audio playback and 11 hours of video playback.
BlackBerry Z10 come ups with some unique features that everyone would love to have. The BlackBerry messenger (BBM) in BlackBerry Z10 includes voice calling and video chatting and allows user to share its screen with another. Another distinguishing feature is the BlackBerry Balance which allows two personas on the same device still keeping the individual data secure. One can set Work mode and personal mode and can switch between them easily. The Time shift is a camera feature that lets you capture a group shot where everyone is smiling with their eyes wide open. BlackBerry Z10 introduces new browser which includes HTML5 support which has a reader mode.
With these many features and new look the BlackBerry Z10 will definitely will attract many, however there is lot of ground to cover. BlackBerry has made a serious attempt in improving its image on poor multimedia and third party application support. There are still few apps that iPhone support that is not available on BlackBerry Z10. There is no Instagram or NetFlix. Also iPhone and Andriod are the default for phone buyers. BlackBerry Z10 has to break that image.
The BlackBerry Z10 price will vary with carrier in US. Verizon says that it will sell it for $200 with two year service pact. Others are yet to announce their pact with BlackBerry Z10.
