The latest BlackBerry Z10 pictures make you wish it were already 2013

0. phoneArena 29 Dec 2012, 14:46 posted on

With the many leaks of the BlackBerry Z10, we now have a pretty good idea what to expect from the first BlackBerry 10 release from RIM; the Canadian manufacturer will introduce its new platform in about a month with the first all-touch BlackBerry Z10 handsets available for purchase sometime later in the first quarter of 2013...

well nothing about this phone or its specs make me wish it was 2013 already. By the time this comes out this will be a mid-ranger facing tough competition from Android manufactirers who have a pattern of launching flagships in the year beginning like HTC, Huawei, LG, etc.

Flagships are highend devices, comparing a flagship device to a mid range device is pointless. I like the phone's looks and the OS, I'll pay close attention to the reviews and Black berry world post launch. This phone is my best bet for a smartphone i like android but they don't have what i want. BB10 is my last hope at getting something i truly want. The only thing i'm worried about really is the pricing i know rim has a history of applying premium prices to their mid range and high end phones, If that's going to be way too high i'll either wait until later or settle for an android device.

Maybe thats because this is a mid range phone. Did you stop to think about that?

Which is why RIM's share price is taking a hit - they are depending on volume sales of a boring phone. That won't hit the market until when? March, 2013?

Shows how misinformed you are. Their stock hit an all time low back in September of this year. The value of the stock is nearly double what it was then, in what 3 months?

Its still entirely possible BB10 will be a fail, but do you have any explanation other than the market is legitimately still interested in it and expect it to be the #3 player, not WP8? I dont think the stock would have responded the way it has if the market thought BB10 was dead in the water.

Talking about design looks pretty good except display is a little to small (at last for me).
Talking about operating system I say thanks but no.

the biggest slap inthe face to blackberry???? the fact that those pix were taken with an iPhone 5 while it was laying on top of an iPad.

considering that 2013 will probably see the rise of 1080p phones than this probably be a pass for most consumers because most business companies will most likely invest heavily on this because they invested on blackberry in the past the only issue is basically it cannot suck on any level. the resolution is good the size of the display could of been bigger considering the average size for displays are 4.5 or 4.6 but expandable microsd is good thing, 2gb of ram another plus, camera is a plus, LTE good, the battery can be bigger, so the only question is the OS BB10. because BB10 has been in the air for quite sometime and has been delayed a good amount of time. the question is how will it fair, what has RIM done in that time to make BB a contender in the future that is the question. starting in jan through the year we will have an answer cause all the big names are coming out with phones next year Samsung Galaxy S IV, Maybe a new Note, probably an iphone 5s, Windows Phone 8 series, and etc,and most likely be 1080p powerhouse smartphones with hopefully blasting hardware. we will all need to see how to pans house cause if this doesn't work that pretty much RIM is doomed and have no choice but to close doors or get bought out. all i can say BB10 better be good for RIMS sake
