BlackBerry Z10 is here: all-touch and with 70,000 BB10 apps behind it

The screen is 4.2" LCD with 1280 x 768 pixels, making for a pixel density of 356ppi. A 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and 2 GB of RAM are the power under the hood, and there are 16 GB of internal storage, as well as the all-important microSD card slot...

If everyone jumps of the bridge, are you gonna follow, because it's obviously the best choice?

Android is on every goddamn device these days, people don't have a choice. Most members here prove how stupid one can get without understanding the consequences of monopoly. Good luck with your overpowered lifeless and useless octa core droid. I'll enjoy the new BB10 and Sailfish devices after my lovely single core N9 that works faster than your pathetic GS3.

Big screens are just a trend. They will start competing yet again who will make a more portable and pocketable device. If I want a big screen, I'll bring my laptop or a freaking tablet. A phone is supposed to be practical. All the iPhones, BB Z10, Nokia N9 are just examples of UI done right. Try using a Note 2 or the new 6 inch screens while walking. You'll have to sit on a bench and dial a simple number to call with both hands.

And please don't tell me you're Shaquille O'Neal with hands the size of tennis raquets.

Nobody needs android with their huge screens and and high end devices...we need a decent sized screen so it fits beautifully in our hands and a software that is way better than android...and that right there is Blackberry 10 B****

galaxy s3, note 1 and 2, htc one x and one x+ etc sales say different. if that was the case then lower end spec androids would be selling better than higher end spec ones. but they arent.

Android needs higher end specs on their devices...

iPhone 5 – Apple A6 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, triple-core PowerVR SGX 543MP3 GPU, 1GB RAM

Samsung Galaxy S3 – Exynos 4412 1.4GHz Quad-core CPU

and the iphone has a lot more power than the S3 so there goes your proof

so you're arguing that phones dont need higher end specs, and you use the iphone as an example, yet you link the iphone 5 specs to try to show that it has higher specs than the gs3. lol. you win, ignorance is bliss.

Yes ignoriance is bliss when u are lost at conversation...I never said it has higher specs than the gs3. I'm showing u that even though it has lower specs than the gs3 it is still much more powerful than gs3 and works flawlessly in comparison...durrrrr

Apparently, Average Joes require high specs. But what use does he get of a quad core when it takes longer to complete tasks than a dual core? Also, do keep in mind that CPU architectures matter, a dual core A15 is faster than a quad A7, for instance. You're just a guy that needs high specs in order to compensate your insecurities and brag to your friends.

It doesn't have "more power", sir. It runs a lot LESS than an android device does, so it doesn't need much. Why you're trying to diss Android, who knows? But it surely isn't working out for you.

When i say more power i'm speaking of benchmarking speeds...Hello!!!

It's a faster phone...oh and for your information i'm not trying to diss android cuz i would prefer an android over an iphone any day...cuz i'm a multi tasker...i'm just trying to prove a point lol

A lot less? That's an excuse that matter when the first Droid came out. Android is a painful inefficient mess of an OS. Just check out app launch speed between ( what freebee would call lowspec, dual core) an iPhone 5 and a high spec Note II. Software is what matters.

Slight correction:

A6 is a 1.3GHz, while A6X is a 1.4GHz. CPU benchmarks are not far off a quad core and yet a dual. Efficient OS and an extremely powerful GPU are what matter in everyday performance. You give two people a S4 and an Exynos GS3s, nobody would know the difference,

In which country? Qatar? Low spec Android phones are selling the most. Android would have never gotten where it is if Symbian was updated in time. Killing off Symbian and having cheap Droids resulted in Android's success.

Welcome back to the party Blackberry. Don't call it a comeback because it wasn't like you left. I am wishing Blackberry 10 all the best. There is room for 4 players in the market, th emore competition there is the better it is for consumers. Blackberry I like what I see so far from the specs and the phone. My only gripe is that you wasted so much screen space for no reason smdh!! All in All I am happy to see Blackberry 10 come out swinging best of luck. Time will tell if consumers will adapt the platform or go for the latter. Best of luck RIM, Blackberry to the World!!

I wish them luck i truly do the demo impressed me because RIM gave me more than i expected on BB10 even though it seems that there are some learning curve but BB10 looks good in the demo so far it's just how the consumer will look at it. like the hub, BBM, and their own verison of multi-tasking features. Best that luck to you RIM

"BB10 is a true multitasking system, like Android"

BB10 - YES; Android - NO

Yes... the misinformation runs rampant when non-droid users attempt to speak.

It's funny how people dog out windows, apple , and now blackberry when in fact I don't care if it quad core or single core you still mainly just surf the net , play games, text, and talk. If you want a computer buy a laptop, netbook, or ultrabook. I feel windows is the best but its lack of apps hurts it, apple is good but need a new look, blackberry looks cool, android is ok but too many force closes for me. In short just like what you like there are great choices.

"In short just like what you like there are great choices."

i agree. i am a tech fan. i dont take sides on any manfuacturer. i just go with what i like and is attractive to me. i also go with what is working with the most manfacturer support. thats why i currently have a lumia 920. i use it the most out of my phones. nokia has great support and exclusive software for their phones. i also own a galaxy s3. i like android and what it has to offer. sony xperia looks attractive to me and i will go play with it when it hits the stores and see how it performs. i'm looking forward to the gs4. i just want to see can it live up to the sales that the gs3 has gotten and what new features does samsung bring to the galaxy line. i used to be a supporter of iphone, but i stopped using iphone when the iphone 4 came out. around that time android had caught up with IOS in the app market and android phones started overtaking iphone in specs. i like what windows has to offer, it is different. i will also go play with a blackberry z10 and see how that performs also. i will have an open mind and it will have a chance to get me to buy one. the more choices i have as a consumer, the better off i am and innovation keeps rolling.

Spoiled kid = level over 9000

Which Droid has better specs than the iPhone 5? I don't like iPhone, but the A6/X are beasts when it comes to CPU and graphics. That dual core in an iPhone is slightly slower but it is accompanied by much better and efficient software. As for the GPUs, don't even go there.
