BlackBerry Z30 gets compared to a Nokia Lumia 925, reveals 5-inch display and 2GB RAM

The 5-inch BlackBerry Z30 is certainly no secret, still unofficial, but no secret. This BlackBerry 10-powered smartphone was once called the A10 Aritso and we’ve seen several pictures and videos surface online that show off its design and size to other BlackBerry 10 devices, but today the Z30 gets measured up against the Nokia Lumia 925. Bottom line, it’s bigger.

The Z30 reportedly has a 5-inch display, 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 8MP camera, 2880 mAh battery and further confirmation of rumoured specs reveals itself from the settings menu, specifically that it has 16GB internal storage, 2GB RAM, running OS 10.2.0.1442.

There’s no word from BlackBerry yet on when the Z30 will be available or the price points.

    Aaand let the frivolous hating commence…

    • Sukdis Knaatz

      RIP BBRY, YO!

    • beyond

      they should have just placed a potato beside the Nokia 925 and called it Z30, there wouldn’t have been much difference :)

    • AppleBerrySandwich

      Ya – I don’t get why people have to hate. Seriously, some people need to get a life.

    • FuzzyFish6

      You’re absolutely correct that they have no life lol.

      Just yesterday in another thread a new troll was saying how BB doesn’t spend on R&D like another company in Canada, so when I bust out the real statistics and show how full of BS he was, I get the following reply:

      “Sorry bud, but raw numbers don’t mean jack.”

      Then another one in the same thread was making a claim that he insist was all over the media, then when I asked him to show prove he said he’s “not going to entertain this charade”.

      Like any dumb troll, both “somedoobsandbeer” and “DickGozinya” disappeared and never replied after that. How typical.

      Honestly, why do trolls waste their time on things they have no interest in? I don’t participate in topics that I don’t really care about because there’s better things to do with my time; that and since I have no interest in them I have zero desire to even talk about them, just like I have no desire to talk about soap operas or football (sorry football fans!).
      What a drag and waste of my time lol.

    • DickGozinya

      And you’ve just officially demonstrated to all how insane you really are. Sucks to be you. Btw, rip bbry!!!!!!!!!!!

    • FuzzyFish6

      Listen, as I said I’m willing to admit if I’m wrong, but to take some random yahoo’s word on the internet as fact? Not happening.

      You made a claim, prove it.

    • hoo dat

      He won’t. He’ll disappear for a while and reappear under a new pseudonym. The chances are both of the trolls you’re talking about are the same person. There’s been one following me around the last few months, this could be the same guy as far as I know, who attacks with unsubstantiated garbage and once facts start flying around in his/her direction starts replying to and supporting their own posts under a new ID.

    • DickGozinya

      Don’t think so highly of yourself. You’re really not worth anything more than a roll of toilet paper to most. In my case all I do is call out the official paid bbry shills and take them to task. One of the more recent confirmed cases was a fellow by the name manic devlin. Once he was outed he deleted as much of his online presence as possible running under that pseudonym. From Twitter to crackberry, to bbry agent news to facebook.
      Those types are the real parasites to these forums, not the ones who speak the truth and call out the shilling and other vs the others are doing. For all I know, YOU could be him, lol. You serf.

    • hoo dat

      LMAO!

    • bambinoitaliano

      Trolls are losers who have no redeemable quality. Nothing they have ever done ever won anything. That’s why they need to pick something beyond their capability to root for. That’s as close in life as they can get to win anything even if it’s superficial. Even if it only gives them short term euphoria. It’s the fastest way and the least effort require to gain what little joy in life they can get. They are actually quite pitiful.

  • JB

    This is a very pretty phone. Sign me up.

  • J-Ro

    I guess this is for anyone that complains that they screens aren’t big enough. Of course, someone will still say “Little too late BBRY, RIP”

    Lol no one here wants to hear good news about Blackberries.

    • Plazmic Flame

      Most of the complaint about the screen size is towards the Q10, which I agree with.

      The Z10 is just fine. The Z30 is for the phablet crowd.

    • J-Ro

      Which is perfectly fine. The Q10 to me is perfect in the sense that if the screen were any larger, people would be complaining about it falling out of their hands. Either way, people will complain.

    • FuzzyFish6

      And most of the time online, people that complaint the loudest always have zero experience with the actual product.

      These same people needs to remember the following quote and live by it.
      “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt”.

    • J-Ro

      Very true

  • Lazardus

    Now this is more like it from Blackberry. Should have released this last year imo!

  • steven_bauman_7

    The Z30 looks like a really awesome phone, even the Z10 is a great phone besides the awful battery life (I have one). It seriously just needs more apps, that’s it. I know I can side-load (even with 10.2 on it it’s even better), but if I’m using android apps on the BB10 platform, I might as well use an android phone.

    • J-Ro

      Don’t worry, The OS is not even a year old yet. As it matures, more apps will come.

  • Jon Robinson

    Should be an interesting mobile device. I’m excited to see more goodies in 10.2

  • Bri

    I don’t know why bb leaves a huge empty space at the bottom of their Z series. It’s useless, ugly, and makes the phone so much bigger than necessary.

    • Sukdis Knaatz

      Because of the swipe features.

    • FuzzyFish6

      It’s a space to swipe up for your thumb. I really like the “footprint” of the MotoX, but if you were to use it one handed and it has a swipe happy gesture system from the bottom, people would drop it every time you need to swipe up.

      The Z10 has gigantic bezels everywhere though, which isn’t that attractive. Looks like they’re trying to fix that with the Z30. I don’t care for the silver/black look though,

  • Nadefrenzy

    LOL at the ginormous bezels on both phones lol. Welcome to 2011.

    • jgerb0

      STFU

    • Nadefrenzy

      Fangirl alert.

    • FuzzyFish6

      The Z30 has thick top and side bezels? Really?

    • Josh Brown

      compared to the S4 yes it does

    • FuzzyFish6

      But he wasn’t talking about the S4.

      And from various pics, the top Z30 bezel is definitely thinner than the S4. S4 has thinner side bezels however.

    • Nadefrenzy

      Of course I was. I was comparing it to the other 2013 (or 2014) phones in the market. The S4/G2 heck even the Moto X all have much slimmer bezels than these two phones.

      Also that whole “need-big-bezel-to-swipe” is bs cuz I’ve used a S4 before and I can use all those swipe features in the newer google apps just fine. Sure the top and bottom bezels are ok for the Z30 cuz that’s helpful for the gestures, but not the sides.

    • FuzzyFish6

      What do you mean “heck even MotoX? The MotoX was designed to have a small footprint and thin bezels, you say it as if that’s a surprise.

      And how can you say the the bezel to swipe is BS then immediately go on to say they’re okay because it’s helpful for gestures? Or are you just talking about side bezels?

    • Nadefrenzy

      I said that because the Moto X is an inferior device to the other flagships… regardless of what it’s priced at.

      And yes, I was talking about the side bezels. The top/bottom are fine for the Z30 since they help for the gestures.

    • FuzzyFish6

      The MotoX is a mid-high tier device. Don’t just judge it by specs alone. I hope it performs well over time, this will help ease the notion that Android isn’t as resource efficient as competing platforms.

      Side bezels are a little thicker than the S4, but if you search some direct head on pics of the Z30 that are online, it’s not that far off. You make it sound like it’s 2x the thickness, but in reality it’s likely to be less than 1mm extra.

    • Nadefrenzy

      Nope, it’s definitely more than a 1mm. More like 2mm.

      “this will help ease the notion that Android isn’t as resource efficient as competing platforms.”

      But.. it isn’t. Android IS heavier than competing platforms. It’s just the nature of the beast.

      So yes, the Moto X IS a low-mid tier device. Specs play a huge part in the Android world. Hope it ISN’T successful otherwise they’ll keep introducing overpriced crap like that again and again.

    • FuzzyFish6

      One of us definitely needs to get our eyes checked lol.

      Project Butter shows that there is a lot of optimization that could be done to Android, keep throwing specs at the problem is a bandaid solution.

      How can you say MotoX is crap when the phone isn’t even out? Why not be a bit more open minded and see what people actually have to say about the device and you personally have a chance to try it in person?

      BTW, Daniel on Syrup seems to like it just fine and thinks it’s far from “crap”.

    • Nadefrenzy

      Sure it might be a decent device, but at that price I’m not at all willing to consider it.

      As far as eye checkups go, that would be you who’d require them since I just had mine last week.

    • FuzzyFish6

      “Sure it might be a decent device, but at that price I’m not at all willing to consider it.”

      And that’s fine, you fall into the camp that cares more about numbers; you should try to understand that there are many others who cares more about the overall experience, and from various reviews so far, the MotoX seems to be a great phone for those people.

      “As far as eye checkups go, that would be you who’d require them since I just had mine last week.”

      mobilesyrup dot com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/z30 dot png

      If you really think the Z30 has 2mm thicker bezels on each side, well you might want to check your eyes again or ask for a refund.

    • Nadefrenzy

      You mean the camp that cares about value?

      You’re paying $600 for a device in 2013 with a dual core 720p. You can call that”experience”, but not me nor most people(smart people that is).

      Also check out that article picture before you start looking random prototypes.

    • FuzzyFish6

      I can afford to pay for things that I want, if I’m getting a device I can easily pay more to get something that works well over something that offers the most “value”.

      You can go for numbers and “value”, I’ll go for what works the best, thanks.

      And if you claim most people go for “value”, everyone would have a N4, which obviously isn’t remotely the case. So there goes your “most people go for value” idea.

    • Nadefrenzy

      Who said Nexus 4 was the best value? You’re buying a $400+ phone, you obviously have WANTS for the phone.

      The S3 is a better value than Nexus 4 at its $300 price. The S4 is better value than the Nexus 4 at its $600 price. There’s diff price value points.

      However, a Moto X at $600 is NOT good value considering you can get a S4 at the same price. What exactly does the Moto X do better than the S4? Continuous google now voice? Custom backplate lol? If those features are worth the $600 price tag for you then u’re not the avg consumer nor do you understand the concept of “value”… at least not in the smartphone world. Stick with your BB.

    • FuzzyFish6

      It’s definitely the general consensus. All you have to do is browse the comment section whenever a N4 post pops up lol.

      You might want to stop making blanket statements that “most smart people” buy what’s the best value. Everyone knows that “value” means different things to different people and is subjective, don’t make it sound like the definition of value is objective and what you find to have value will be the same for others.

      Read the MotoX review on here on Syrup, there’s someone who has experience with all these devices and prefer the X over other Android phones.
      Why don’t you judge something once you have some experience with it, yes?

    • Nadefrenzy

      Nope. Dual core for $600 is a joke. I don’t care how “smooth” it seems to be. In my experience with Android, ALL devices fade in performance with time, and a dual-core (already obsolete) is rendered useless in a year or two.

      Also, if the Nexus 4 was the best value, everyone would be getting that over the S4/HTC One. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

      Again, value has different price points. The best bang for your $600 would be a S4. A nexus 4 at $450 etc.

      It has nothing to do with i****s on the internet defending the high and mighty Nexus 4.

    • FuzzyFish6

      “I don’t care how “smooth” it seems to be. In my experience with Android, ALL devices fade in performance with time, and a dual-core (already obsolete) is rendered useless in a year or two.”

      What if Motorola optimized the OS for the hardware more so than other manufacturers have (many reviews seems to think so)? Remember that this device is the first major Motorola product released after the Google acquisition and is the first close collaboration between the 2 companies.

      You’re the one that claimed “most people” go for value, not me.

      Not much more to add to this conversation, but all I can say is that I hope you’ll judge something (not just the MotoX or phones) based on actual knowledge and experience instead of personal bias and that there are people who prefer different things than you do, which is okay.
      The world would be a far better place if more people do and understand that.

    • Nadefrenzy

      Weren’t you the one raving on about Daniel’s review of this? Did you even read that? He himself said it there that the progression of a quad is far better than a dual over any time period.

      Also, im basing the phone from experience and my judgement. I could care less about bias except if u’re talking about brand loyalty.

      Moto X with a few gimmicky “touchless control” with a 2 year old 720p display and a quadcore WITHOUT motomaker even (at least for now) does nothing to justify this phone’s insane price tag. I also believe Samsung/HTC have proven themselves, but Motorola has yet to do that.

    • FuzzyFish6

      I’ve referenced Daniel’s review…twice? You might want to re-read his review if you think his main point is “the progression of a quad is far better than a dual over any time period”.
      You don’t have to like the device, but at least know more about it if you want to judge it in the way you have.

      Read the entire thing instead of selectively read what fits your narrative. Here’s the particular paragraph I’m assuming you’re thinking about:

      “Unfortunately, this is not going to assuage those looking for top value, which usually equates to higher specs at a lower price. I have nothing to say to this other than right now the subjective delta between a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro and a quad-core Snapdragon 600 is, outside of synthetic benchmarks, almost non-existent. In two years — by the end of a contract — that may not be the case, which is a legitimate concern, but we’ve reached the point where two year old phones are running Android 4.2 just fine.”

      I question how much experience you actually have with the MotoX. If you actually do, great, but if you don’t, why lie to yourself about it.

    • Nadefrenzy

      I quoted Daniel since you seem to hold his opinion so highly as if he’s some tech God. I don’t. He’s just another reviewer in my books. I never said that THAT was the main point of his article, but I did say that it’s a valid concern.

      You still haven’t addressed the issues with the screen res and defended the dual core. Give be one benefit of having a dual core over quad core? Battery life..Nope. Moto x lasts as long as the HTC one does.

    • FuzzyFish6

      “I quoted Daniel since you seem to hold his opinion so highly as if he’s some tech God.”

      Lol, how you figure? Because I happened to reference his review a couple of times (we are on Syrup right now, in case you didn’t notice).
      Again, stop assuming things.

      “You still haven’t addressed the issues with the screen res and defended the dual core. Give be one benefit of having a dual core over quad core? Battery life..Nope. Moto x lasts as long as the HTC one does.”

      I did, by telling you to read and comprehend his review. He shares the thoughts of many people regarding those issues.

      And you didn’t address the fact that it’s being reported by many sources they (Motorola and Google) optimized the OS specifically for this device. Or just how much “experience” you have with it.
      If you’re going to call people out on things, make sure you’re not ignoring the same things yourself.

    • Nadefrenzy

      Do you really think I come to mobilesyrup solely cuz of what Daniel posts? Nope. I come here for the comments and the Canadian-centric content that they post. Sure, the reviewers aren’t complete i****s which is why that helps too, but by no means is it the de-facto standard to refer to when making a judgement call.

      Well the Nexus 4 is supposed to be optimized too, but that phone lags on occasion too (my bro has one, and I tested it for a few days). Do I expect the dualcore Moto X to do better let alone be equal in perf? Nope, sorry, but I don’t. I’ll have to see it to believe it, and until then I’ll let my exp/know-how of android help me come to a conclusion—it ain’t worth its pricetag.

    • FuzzyFish6

      Looks about the same as an S3, do you think the S3 has a combined 4mm thicker side bezel than the S4?

    • Nadefrenzy

      Yes.

    • FuzzyFish6

      Very interesting. Might want to bust out a ruler my friend. ;)

    • Nadefrenzy

      That eye-test you keep going on about could prove highly useful for you.

    • Josh Brown

      He wasn’t talking about any phone but is it not implied that he is comparing it to other phones? How else do you determine if a phone has thick bezels?

    • FuzzyFish6

      How about this, he wasn’t just talking about the S4.

    • Josh Brown

      You just can’t admit you are wrong. Give me some examples of 2013 phones that are coming out, that have the same or bigger bezels, and they need to be the same price point.

    • FuzzyFish6

      How many times have I mentioned that you’ve made good posts/points before Josh? If I think I’m always right I wouldn’t agree with you, ever. Lol.
      On the flip side, how often do you agree with others who share different views than yours?
      Remember our super long discussion previously and how much you hated and think BB10 sucks? Then just last week in this very thread you came out and said you’ve never used a BB10 phone before. You sure have some very strong feelings for something that you’ve never used or have any experience with.

      And you serious think Nade was only speaking about the S4?

      As for your question, how about any WP8 and iOS device. Is this really the state of Android fanbase these days? Arguing about the size of the side bezels?

    • Josh Brown

      Wow that got personal!

    • FuzzyFish6

      Nah, I’m talking about your actions and not you as a person. I’m sure you’re a good dude IRL.

    • Nadefrenzy

      Let’s get something straight. In today’s tough competitive smartphone market, standout features matter. The Lumia lineup have amazing cameras, that’s their feature. Androids are powerhouses and now with their slimmed down bezels and waistlines, they appeal aesthetically to ppl too. BB has some pros too but in order to really compete with the rest, they need to slim down their devices. Presently their devices are “bulky” compared to the competition—yes that includes the S4 too.

      I’m glad that BB is an option, but they gotta step it up to really compete. Just my objective opinion.

    • anthony rowland

      yeah,i prefer my screen right at the edge so it’ll break easier if dropped.

    • Nadefrenzy

      It’s called a case.

    • anthony rowland

      so you’re mad at BB for making a built in case? that’s the equivalent of not liking a safer car because you can wear a helmet in a less safe car.

    • Nadefrenzy

      Too many issues with your argument:

      1) Not everyone wants a case on their phone—give ppl choice.
      2) I can bet you that my note 2 with a case is a lot more durable than a Z10/Z30 without a case.
      3) That helmet analogy fails because in this instance the “helmet” actually provides better protection than your supposed “safer” car.
      4) As long as the car passes the 5 star rating test, small nuances for “safety” don’t matter, but rather features do.

  • Josh Brown

    I don’t like BB’s, but this is a nice looking phone. Here to hoping people buy it though. I will continue to say this though, they need to make a splash. They need something to make people say “my phone does not do that”. People won’t switch eco systems unless there is something there that Google or Apple doesn’t have and it has to be big and you have to advertise it. BB can not afford to slow play this or even Microsoft will kill them.

    • J-Ro

      Your absolutely right. They need to promote how fluid their gesture system is. That is their killer feature, they promoted the keyboard prediction but all keyboards do that. The gesture system is their future.

    • Bri

      I’ve never played around with BB10 long enough and don’t know whether the gesture feature is actually good or not. Does it actually make navigating experience that much better? faster? than iOS/Android/WP?

    • J-Ro

      It makes it a lot better. From turning the screen off, to switching to apps, it takes no effort at all. Plus, after using for just a month, I find having to hit a home of back button very slow lol it kinda spoiled me in a way.

    • Bri

      That sounds quite convincing. BB doesn’t have a good marketing strategy I guess.

    • J-Ro

      That is the problem. Good marketing is lacking. To this day, they barely demonstrate how easy and fast it is. lol but if you think back to their past promotions, you would see marketing was never their thing.

    • FuzzyFish6

      Have you used the side swipe gesture in the iOS (not sure if Android is the same or not) FB app to get into FB Messenger?

      The Hub is like that x10. The problem is that this really only matters to people who are heavy into communication, while the rest of the OS is slick and refine, not many other things jump out and impresses like the Hub does.

    • Josh Brown

      But Android has those feature as well. They need to be able to make a feature that no one else has and then advertise the crap out of it. Gesture control has been around for a long time, you are not going to differentiate yourself by taking a feature and making it slightly better.

    • J-Ro

      Android does have it but it is not as fluid. BB10 was built around the gesture system, so everything feels fluid when using it.

      And taking a feature and making it slightly better is what made both kings of market share kings (Apple and Samsung).

    • Josh Brown

      How is the Blackberry gesture system better? I have never used it. Google uses side swipes to bring up navigation and settings menu, swipe up brings up Google now but you can also set custom gestures to do what ever you want. but samsung even uses gestures for the proximity sensor so you don’t even need to touch the screen and also your eyes so you don’t need to anything. I love smart stay I can never go back. I can keep my screen out time to 30 sec. but when the phone goes to time out it first uses the camera to make sure that I am not looking at the screen and if I am it keeps the screen on. or smart scroll if I am reading a long email or website when my eyes go to the bottom of the screen it automatically scrolls for me, it sounds simple but makes a huge differance. Also in my line of work I am constantly switching from excel file to pdf file so multi window is awesome.

    • J-Ro

      In your first sentence, you made the rest of your advertisement void. You have never used it, so you won’t understand. I have an SG3 and I know they have gesture functions. I even love smart stay and multi-window. BB10, has an OS built around the gesture system. So instead of configuring how the phone works, it just works.

      I can’t explain to you how it works but maybe you should try one for a week or so, then you will understand what I mean.

    • FuzzyFish6

      I hate to use the corporate buzz word, but BB10 really does “flow” in and out of apps/emails/messages really well. Going back and forth between tasks is really easy, intuitive and a joy to use.
      It’s obvious the designers really thought it out.

      Having said that, the “flow” experience isn’t something other manufacturers and OS can’t adopt. When that happens, what then?

    • DickGozinya

      Yes, swiping 18 times to get back to another app is a super duper oh joy in fun time! Yes, ill take two!

    • FuzzyFish6

      Try a single swipe.

    • FuzzyFish6

      You don’t like BB Josh? What a shock!!

      ;)

      I fully agree with your post here tho, except for the part that people don’t change ecosystems. People have been ditching iOS for Android at record pace, as long as they see something they like (whether it’s because of marketing or actual advantages of the OS), they’ll switch.

      Good post.

    • Josh Brown

      I didn’t say they don’t switch at all what I was saying is that they don’t switch for something similar they switch for something better. So BB has to make something that Android and IOS don’t have and make people want it.

    • FuzzyFish6

      That’s fair, but people will also switch when they get bored of an OS.

    • J-Ro

      If Apple can patent “screen bounce” I think Blackberry can fight for it’s fluid gesture system.

    • Josh Brown

      Actually most of those patents are invalid now and there is a big push to get rid of all software patents.

    • Josh Brown

      I don’t think BB has time for people to get bored of an OS. Especially when IOS and Android show no signs of slowing down.

    • FuzzyFish6

      iOS is slowing down for sure, Android hasn’t yet.

      But you’re right, time isn’t on BB’s side. I think WP8 (or 9? 10?) will be much bigger than they are now is 3-4 years if they play their cards right.

    • Josh Brown

      I agree that microsoft may get bigger but they have a lot of issues as well. The reason Google has done so well is the services that are integrated into Android Gmail, drive, G+, Google Now, Maps, turn by turn navigation, Keep, Hangouts, Translate, Google Voice. This is what BB needs to work on now to win people back but it will be hard as they don’t have the web presence like Google has. Even Microsoft and Apple do not have that Presence.

    • FuzzyFish6

      WP# will always have problems, slow updates and features being the major ones at this point.

      But I do see them gaining market share from people who are bored of or just don’t want the competing platforms over the next several years.

    • J-Ro

      A lot of people aren’t bored, they just follow. iOS hasn’t changed in 7 years and your telling me people can’t stand to bare a new OS for 1 month?

      Because that is all it takes to get used to it.

    • Josh Brown

      What do you mean a month people are afraid to switch because the will be stuck with it for 2 years. People want something they know

    • J-Ro

      So what your saying is pepole don’t want anything new? We all just want to pay a new price for the same old products?

      Perhaps that is why companies do not innovate. Why waste the money on R&D if everyone wants last years iPhone in gold.

    • Josh Brown

      No they just dont think its better, I certainly don’t think so. Android has Google Now and widgets and syncing between chrome and chrome on Android. TW has smart stay and smart scroll and multi window and driving mode. Plus it is has things like tasker, NFC task launcher, UCCW and different launchers. there is even launchers and themes that act like the BB10 platform, Why would I spend $649 on a Z10 when I know that I love the features of android and the z10 has 1 1/2 year old specs to to begin with. I am not saying that no one should buy a BB all I am saying is that my views are held by alot of other people as well.

    • J-Ro

      If people only buy for specs, how do you explain the iPhones success?

    • Josh Brown

      13% market share is success?

    • J-Ro

      Well, I consider a company being valued at $500 billion being pretty successful.

      What do you consider successful?

    • Josh Brown

      “With a market capitalization of more than $374 billion as of Wednesday’s close, Apple is worth far more than Google, which has a market cap that now sits at $290 billion. As The Wall Street Journal’s MoneyBeat blog points out, however, Google has surpassed Apple as the world’s most valuable tech company when using a less conventional measure. “The market caps of both companies are swelled by their huge bank accounts,” MoneyBeat’s Rolfe Winkler wrote. “Strip out Apple’s $145 billion of net cash as of March, and Google’s $45 billion. This leaves an enterprise value of $233 billion for Apple, but $241 billion for Google, reflecting the underlying value of the companies’ actual operations.” ”

      Google is not far behind and has 80% smartphone market share. Plus the $374 Billion came from D-Bags that don’t know any better. HAHA

    • Josh Brown

      What is Apple stock down to now?

    • J-Ro

      It is actually up. And, regardless how their stock is doing. Once the general public gives BB10 OS a chance, we will be having an entirely different conversation.

      Give it a year or so for them to catch on.

    • Josh Brown

      Give it a year or so and they will be divided up into 3 separate companies and sold one by one. BB7 sells better than BB10. Their time to have it catch on has passed. The CEO stands to make $55 million if he sells the company, I don’t think he will pass that up.

    • J-Ro

      They can likely go private as well. I don’t think they want to give up on the phone market so soon. After they have put so much work into the new software and hardware, that wouldn’t make sense.

    • Josh Brown

      When It drops $250 a share then scratches back $50 a share I would not consider that up

    • J-Ro

      I guess only time will tell what happens to Blackberry. I think they will do fine but what do I know about such a volatile market, I am no expert.

  • Elvin

    oh god, why you always write Aristo as “Aritso”? What a noob.

  • spammenotdisqus

    Is that a bezel or a sidewalk?

  • rd0t

    For anyone that hates on BlackBerry 10.. I have a question for you; have you even picked up a BB10 device and used it for more than 5 minutes? Seriously, try it. The gestures do take some time to get used to, especially coming from those awful home buttons, but once you get used to them you’ll wonder why phone manufacturers didnt implement complete gestures earlier.

    Looking forward to the Z30! 10.2 runs amazingly well on my Z10.. BB10 is really growing fast!

    • J-Ro

      FINALLY!! someone that has used the OS and isn’t going on reviews of the OS

  • Kabir Raza

    BB is much better

  • anthony rowland

    nobody wants a blackberry because it doesn’t have the apps they probably won’t use anyway…not to mention with BB10.2 android 4.0 apps are installed as easy as if you were installing itunes and loading songs onto your phone.

  • PT

    I would buy it in a heartbreak if BB Z30run full android, neve rmind that stupic BB10.

  • goodgangsta

    ahhh poor blackberry release bbm for android and ios!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
