BlackBerry fans, here are some new BlackBerry Z3 hands-on photos

It's been a while since we last saw the BlackBerry Z3, codenamed "Jakarta". Now, BlackBerry's first BB10-powered, entry-level phone has posed for the camera of Indonesian website Detik. The new hands-on photos confirm, once more, that the Foxconn-produced BlackBerry Z3 is a rectangular slab of black plastic with a 5-inch 540x960 display and a grippy texture on its back. It also has a dual-core CPU, a gig and a half of RAM, and 8GB of storage space.

The ones who have held Jakarta said that it's a solid phone, and its hardware is still able to handle the majority of BB10 and Android apps. Not at all bad for a sub-$200 brand-name handset that's set to launch in Indonesia next week. Hopefully, the Z3 will satisfy BlackBerry's initial pursuit of the emerging markets. In the meantime, feel free to bump up your screen's brightness and take a look at these photos.

Whoa... Why does everybody hate this phone? It's cheap, dude. I live in Indonesia, this phone will free us from Samsung's tyranny & arrogance which floods us with stupid overpriced products in low-mid end market. Kudos to BlackBerry.

Are you out of your mind? Seriously, didn't you remember who was the reigning smartphone oem prior to samsung? None other than blackberry And as far as your "samsung's arrogance" thing, that only adds insult to the injury as in this reality blackberry is the one who prices their devices obnoxiously Besides the one and only reason people used blackberry in the 1st here was bbm and now that it's available for other platforms there really are no logical reasons to buy a berry unless you're a die-hard bb fanboy

And i don't think samsung products are Overpriced, at the very least, not to the extent of blackberry Galaxy s4 costs 6.5 million here (give-and-take) while the Z30 costs 7.5 million.

My first BlackBerry was BB 8520 (Gemini). Nice to try Z30 (Jakarta), sounds very Indonesian.

Looks like an Xperia ZL to me. Also, the naming is dangerously similar to that of Sony. I smell some lawsuits cooking up here!

The Blackberry Z-Series was in developer hands and released before the Xperia Z-series. Misinformed dribble to feed the trolls.

The name should be stands for Sony's next flagship. Look at the phone, that looks such a Sonyish, but this one very ugly (sorry). Sony is far ahead all the way.

Price is the key here. Blackberry should learn from Nokia. Build something affordable but not too cheap and watch as market share go up bit by bit. Lumia 520 and 521 remains the best selling Nokia phones right now why? Because its easier for people to take a risk on a $100 smartphone even by a company in trouble. This phone if priced right will be a strong contender as my next Blackberry device. I really want BB to recover.
