All angles of the BlackBerry Jakarta leak out (UPDATE: Now the BlackBerry Z3)
On Monday, some more angles of the phone were revealed including the sides, the top and bottom. As we told you on Sunday, this is not meant to be a model that competes with the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One 2. The BlackBerry Jakarta would be considered competition for the the Nokia Lumia 520 and Nokia Lumia 525.
The John Chen era of BlackBerry might begin with a phone that has a very limited involvement by the beleaguered Canadian manufacturer as to design and production.

UPDATE: The latest word around Waterloo is that the BlackBerry Jakarta has a new name! The device is now known as the BlackBerry Z3. Go ahead and tell your friends.

A square black phone with a touch screen. This is ground breaking!

I would really like to know what's the point in Alan F stressing that the BB Z3 isn't made by Blackberry? So what? Apple doesn't make the iPhone. Foxconn does. I don't see anyone on PA stressing that. PA really needs to hire someone else to do Blackberry articles. Someome who isn't going to sneak diss Blackberry in every article.

Word! All you do, Alan F, is diss BlackBerry! What do you have against the company? There are many OEM's that have other companies build their handsets. Why is it a problem if BlackBerry does it? You should really discontinue writing articles on BlackBerry since you can't seem to remain objective concerning them.

I'm not saying anything about A.F., but let's just say that PA is nowhere near as professional, or trustworthy, as Mobil Nations....

First of all, there is no bias against any phone or OS on any story...secondly, the difference is that Apple designs the iPhone and procures the parts. BlackBerry has left the design and production to Foxconn.

First off, THERE IS bias against BlackBerry in ALL of your articles. One just has to read your articles about BlackBerry to see this. Two: BlackBerry works closely with Foxconn on the design of their handsets, just like Apple does. Please get your fax straight and PLEASE remain objective when writing articles about BlackBerry.

It's a shame Blackberry has it's head stuck in the toilet bowl. BB10 is a really good OS.

And what has the NEW management over at BlackBerry done for you to assume this? So far the NEW CEO John Chen has: a) reduced hardware loss, b) assembled a new team of professionals who are knowledgeable and experienced at what they do, c) do something that the last 3 ceo's did not/could not do: bring the stock up and restore investor confidence in BlackBerry. Now how does that in ANY WAY show that BlackBerry has their head stuck in a toilet bowl?

I think BlackBerry needs to take better care of current customers. I have a Z10 and mostly like it. But I use an Android LG O G Pro as my daily phone. The reason is I have been waiting forever to get the 10.2 update from AT&T so it will be a better phone. I kknow the carrier has something to do with the delay but BlackBerry needs to push them. I cannot find an AT&T LTE compatible Z30 and I do not want to buy a Q10 just to get the newer OS. My patience is wearing thin. And all I am getting from BlackBerry is a new phone that I will probably never be able to buy.If they want to keep me as a customer give me more attention.

Your phone not having received the 10.2.1 update has nothing to do with BlackBerry if you are using a carrier-designated phone, which is AT&T in your case. BlackBerry has already made the update available to ALL carriers. The delay is solely with AT&T. For instance, I have an unbranded BlackBerry Z10 straight from BlackBerry with T-Mobile settings. I received the update a week after BlackBerry released it. BlackBerry themselves pushes the updates to all unbranded phones. The new OS is AMAZING, by the way. Try taking your sim card out of your Z10, connect to w WiFi source and manually search for the update. If that doesn't work, you may have to wipe your phone, and then search for the update manually. Or connect to BlackBerry link. Also, I'd your searching for a new BlackBerry with AT&T settings, try gsmnation.com.y
