Life goes on: BlackBerry Z30 launches in the U.K. with international shipping
posted by Alan F. / Sep 28, 2013, 3:54 PM
Selfridges in the U.K. is offering the phone for £529.00 ($848 USD) and since the phone has yet to be introduced in the U.S., you can have it shipped to the states if you desire one. The phone is shipped SIM free. Or, you could decide to wait to see if the model comes to the U.S. Back in June, Sprint confirmed that it would be carrying the unit after a November release. But now, Sprint isn't even sure that it wants to carry any BlackBerry inventory in its stores.

At least it was last years specs. Previously, RIM was 2 years behind the spec curve.

not every phone needs an octacore dude, only android requires that, wp,bb and ios can all run better than a quad core android on a dualcore adding extra cores takes away from batterylife. Here comes the hate from fandroids in 3...2...1

Your absolutely right not everyone needs the latest specs on their phone. My dual core Android works just fine. The problem here is releasing a phone with mid tier components then advertising and pricing it as a flagship device.

May as well get them whilst their cheap and have the last ever flagship Blackberry as a collector's item in the cabinet. Cause it sure as hell won't be seeing a 10.3 or BB 11 update ever again. Pity really, BB10 had a lot of promise and I prefer it to WP8 in some ways.

People don't understand. RIM never was about specs, this is probably why they are were they are now Its ok though, I'll root for then till they close all the doors. :(

don't be fooled by the media. The new Z30 easily runs circles around the IPhone Better screen - larger, higher resolution, AMOLED - but... because the screen is large IPhone has all the media saying the PPI is lower - talk about manipulation. Heck the older Z10 had a better screen than the 5S which hasn't come out yet. IPhone is behind, IPhone is behind, IPhone is behind. I may sound ridiculous repeating that so many times but I am so sick of the media telling me what I should do. Check the rest of the specs out - Z30 is way ahead of the IPhone contrary to what the media teaches you. I feel that when I buy the Z30 Apple or Google will put me in Apple or Android jail.

I’m using the Z30 now....great device...OS 10.2 is magnificent once you try it y'll understand what I mean. Very Nice display - Fast OS - Clear sound "new sound experience" you can hold the device in any position without covering the sound ...how to handle the new messages is just awesome!!! Now you can get better “Android Apps” on it ….runs smoother cuz of Jelly Bean. I’m glad they are going private at least to stay away from all the negativity that Media causes. Z30 easily runs circles around any WP8 (except camera) or iPhone (except Apps.) I Really recommend trying it...You will love it.
