BlackBerry Z30 stars in official video; available in U.K. as early as September 26th
Carphone Warehouse has a concession stand inside the retailer where the new BlackBerry 10 powered device will be available. This will be the most powerful BlackBerry device ever with a dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. 2GB of RAM is on board and the largest cell ever found in a BlackBerry phone (2880mAh) keeps the lights on. If you pre-order the device from Selfridges now, you can actually pick up your BlackBerry Z30 on September 26th. The price for the all-touch handset is £600 ($958 USD).
Meanwhile, BlackBerry has released an official video overview of the phone. "See more, hear more, do more," is the tag line of the clip. It refers to the larger screen and the larger battery powering the phone. If the phone follows the same trek as the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10, it will be a few weeks before we see this in the states. Hopefully for the Canadian manufacturer, it will be before the holiday season.

With that bezel, this phone will be ginormous.

Oh Blackberry, just get a build of android with full support for android apps and skin it the way you want; like amazon did with their fire. Then you might get to keep some of your remaining market share.

Any bets that no carrier in the US WILL endorse this phone?

This phone actually looks amazing in looks and specs. My only issue is no removable battery. I like the fact that it does have expandable memory.

In this price point, i would say that BB will soon be died. Sorry to say that but it is true

Blackberry is hemorrhaging enough already but they just had to add more oozing by shooting themselves in the foot with the pricing of the Z30.
