BlackBerry Aristo Z30 shows off on video
Earlier on Tuesday, we told you that BlackBerry's board was considering spinning off BBM into a new company. With the first three BlackBerry 10 models failing to get consumers excited and thus unable to turn the company around, if the Canadian based manufacturer has a last chance it will be up to the BlackBerry Aristo Z30. Expected to launch in November, this is the first 5 inch 'Berry and is also the most powerful handset ever turned out by the company.

Last month, specs for the phone leaked and revealed that the Z30 will be equipped with a 5 inch screen sporting resolution of 720 x 1280. That works out to a pixel density of 296ppi. A dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU and a quad-core GPU is taking care of business under the hood while 2GB of RAM allows the power users to multitask without a hitch. The 16GB of native storage can be expanded by using the 64GB capacity microSD slot which is hot swappable. The back and front facing cameras weigh in at 8MP and 2MP respectively, and a 2800 mAh battery keeps the lights on. BlackBerry 10.2 comes installed on the Z30 out of the box which means that some Android apps will be supported on the device.

What we have below is a video showing off the BlackBerry Aristo from a number of different angles. With the large number of drool-producing handsets coming from LG, Sony, Samsung, HTC and Apple, we are having a hard time seeing where the BlackBerry Z30 fits in during the holiday season. BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins has been excited about the Z30 since March, but it could be a matter of BlackBerry coming up with too little, too late.
