BlackBerry Z10 now available at Verizon

BlackBerry Z10 now available at Verizon
With the report that BlackBerry shipped (and the operative word here is "shipped") one million BlackBerry Z10 units last quarter, the nation's largest carrier is launching the first BlackBerry 10 handset today. The BlackBerry Z10 is being offered by Verizon for $199.99 with a signed two-year pact. The all-touch handset is available in both black and white.

With the phone not having been available in the U.S. until March 22nd, we should get a clearer picture of how well the handset is doing with the next quarterly report. Verizon now joins AT&T and T-Mobile in offering the device as Sprint has said that it will sit this one out. Verizon is offering free two-day shipping on online orders placed Monday through Friday placed before 4:30pm, so you might want to take advantage of that freebie.

I think there is a reason why VZW is sourcing their Z10s from a distributor - they don't think the Z10s will sell too well. I think the remaining BB customers on VZW are waiting to buy a Q10 with the Qwerty keyboard. Any BB customer who would have been a candidate for the Z10 has likely already moved on to Android, iOS or WP. Net-net, I doubt the Z10 is going to do very well on VZW.

I do agree with the first half of your statement. I think at this point in the game, and with a brand new and unfamiliar OS, asking your clients to shell out $200 for his device is too much. I wouldnt go down as much as $50 but $100 would have been a happy middle ground. As a OEM you have to be very careful how you price your phones as pricing them too low gives off the impression that its not a very good device. BB will always have their faithful but if BB wants to attract new clients then they need to be more price friendly.

A smart move by BB would have been to have a designated area in each Verizon store, like the iPhone, for the Z10 and Q10.That way they stand out and dont mesh in with the other black Android phones. I would strongly recommend for anyone interested in getting this phone to wait a month or two. The contract price will be less I guarantee.

I WANT Blackberry to succeed but Gawd that's a lot of bezel. Plus at that screen size I could get a RazrM for $50 (or free depending on distance of the moon in relation to the sun.)

True unsuccessful! And in lapse.

Bazel? Is that like a combination of bezel & bagel? If that's the case, I want my bagel with an extra large bezel. I'm hungry.

My unprofessional opinion says that the bezel thickness has to do with all the funky gestures needed for BB10 OS. If you recall to unlock the screen your finger or thumb has to start way below the bottom portion of the screen. I may be completely wrong but that is what I think. If that is not the case then they failed with having so much bezel. It simply doesnt look good and eats up screen realstate.

I like the concept, but the software needs a few updates and some added features before I would think about it seriously. If they can improve it to the point that its a serious communication machine, I would take a look at it. Right now both IOS and Android are a ways ahead of it. I hope Blackberry succeeds and doesn't go the way of Palm.

I'm not a hater, I'm disappointed in blackberry. I would have given the z10 a chance but for some reason BB is over pricing this greatly.

nice... I'm up for an upgrade and would prefer they had the lumia 928 or S4 before this piece.

Haha. What a piece of crap. Excuse me, sir. Would you like some phone with that bezel? Sweet, cutting-edge 2011 processor, though. What idiots. Haha...

Has anyone commenting on this article actually even played with the device? Why not try it out before hating so then you don't look like you're trolling? We got our Z10 demo unit in store yesterday and it's actually pretty damn clean. Keyboard is well laid out with minimal typos with fast typing. Screen is crisp and vivid. Browsing is quick, operating system intuitive, and the swipe gestures that navigate through the OS are easy and quick to pick up. App management is easy, camera takes good crisp shots with a fast autofocus, and no lag whatsoever even after installing several apps from the App World. This phone could have a really good market to business owners and people who still trust in the Blackberry name for the instantaneous email delivery. Don't knock it till you try it. The sales will be the deciding factor in RIM's success, but the phone is better than I expected. If they added more mainstream apps to the App World, I might consider getting it. Either way it's a nice device and the learning curve on it is a lot less steep than Blackberry's previous devices. Not bad to sell to first time smartphone users or to convert the less than hardcore Apple or Android fans.
