BlackBerry Z30 visits the FCC wearing AT&T connectivity
The last BlackBerry 10 model to be produced under the Thorston Heins regime could soon be offered by AT&T. The BlackBerry Z30 is already available in the states via Verizon, but the handset has just paid a visit to the FCC wearing AT&T's frequencies. It wouldn't be terribly surprising to see the flagship 'Berry be made available through the nation's second largest carrier. After all, it is the depreciation of BlackBerry 10 inventory in the warehouse that is responsible for much of the $4.4 billion loss the company reported for its third quarter.

Besides the inventory, which apparently consists mostly of BlackBerry Z10 units, CEO John Chen did the right thing by throwing everything but the kitchen sink into the large charge against earnings taken by BlackBerry. This will make next year's Q3 earnings comparison look better although Chen doesn't expect the company to return to profitability until 2016.

The BlackBerry Z30 is the first 'Berry to come equipped with a 5 inch screen. The Super AMOLED display offers a resolution of 720 x 1280 (which means we've yet to see a FHD panel from BlackBerry) and it all adds up to a pixel density of 295ppi. Driving this pup is a dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU with the Adreno 320 handling graphics. 2GB of RAM is aboard and there is 16GB of native storage. If you need more, a 64GB capacity microSD slot is available. The 8MP rear-facing shooter has an aperture of f/2.2 and captures 1080 x 1920 video at 30fps. There also is a 2MP front-facing snapper. The optimized 2880mAh cell is supposed to provide 50% more battery life than the competition.
