Comment: QNX. FINALLY!
Comment: Its a huge step blackberry have taken with this phone, you have to consider the improvement its made, and about the little bugs in the OS, i believed it will be fixed with other OS updates that will be coming..
Overall, its smooth, fast..
Good: could be best bits of all OSs...
Bad: probably is all the worst bits
Comment: I was quite interested in this...nice compact body but made of durable plastic (I don't want a glass phone, that's crazy) with removable battery and a new OS that looked fairly capable. Reasonably fast, 2gb of RAM and a micro SD card with a high res screen. Looked good.
But, it's not worth £480. That's mental. That's what you pay for a 5.5 inch quad core with proven OS.
It really needed google maps. The lack of that kills it for me. Bad apps are no good. It's a major thing within a smartphone OS and I just can't be bothered to mess about with something that doesn't really work, especially for $480.
I don't really care about the apps if the browsers good, but this one doesn't
Good: More competition
Bad: A little late in to the world of Smartphones
Comment: Why must you always mention the iPhone? i.e. but the iPhone has this or that? Have you never seen a Samsung Galaxy SIII, which incidenally knocks spots of the stupid iPhone. I wish BB good luck with the Z10.
Comment: also meant to mention that the price is very reasonable - i paid $130 Canadian. if my math is correct that is 50ish pounds. And agree with above, stop compairing to iphone. i still have an iphone, but will gladly trade it for another BB z10.
Comment: have had an iphone for 5-6 years since switching from BB. As a business person, Iphone i more a toy than for business. now that the BB has updated its system, its back to BB for me all the way! i have no idea what quirks this article is talking about, have experienced none at all. Batter life is the same as iphone. If you are a heavy user like me, none of them last more than 4-6 hours in constant use. Also love that i can have a second battery, third, etc. again. never liked not being abl to change batteries on the iphone. it is faster than iphone and the hub is brilliant. I love the fact that i can seperate my profiles as well. Even though flash is going the way of the blacksmith, there are still tens of millions of paces with flash and it is nice to actually be able to acces those again. as for aps, there are only 70,000, give me a break. 90% of the apps in the itunes store are trash. anyone who can't find what they need in 70,000 programs has too much time on their hands.
Good: Nice mix between work and home
Bad: basic software like whatsapp was not developed in advance
Comment: Good product by Blackberry. Software seems good! cant comment to much as it will take time to get used to. End of the day I will have a product which works bbm,skype,whatsapp and a good smart phone with some new features. So happyi got it
Good: Its not a a Iphone
Comment: Well i can not trust a Pro Apple channel to look at any device with Un Apple Eyes But For Blackberrys first shot its not bad and its 4G cross Network (NOT EE) i can see this making a nice device
Oh CNET UK stop comparing every phone to a Out dated Iphone
