New video of BlackBerry Aristo Z30/A10 discovered

New video of BlackBerry Aristo Z30/A10 discovered
The BlackBerry Aristo, aka the Z30 or the A10, will be the Canadian manufacturer's last chance to end the year on a high note. After excitement for the new BlackBerry 10 models peaked early, it will be the launch of the first 5 inch BlackBerry smartphone that will be counted on to try to make 2013 a successful year instead of yet another year that ends with the carrier having one foot in the ground.

The video shows the handset with the words "Not for sale" printed on the bottom, and we get a limited tour of the device and the gesture based UI that BlackBerry 10 is all about. The company recently released the entry-level BlackBerry Q5 which offers a plastic body and a more basic QWERTY than what is on the BlackBerry Q10.  But the Aristo resembles a larger BlackBerry Z10, the all-touch device that was the first BlackBerry 10 phone to be released.

Will the BlackBerry Aristo Z30 or A10 help keep BlackBerry alive?  The device will have to go up against the Samsung Galaxy Note III, the Apple iPhone 5S, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and the LG G2 to name a few.  It will be tough sledding for the company which has been thinking about going private in order to buy some extra time as it tries to stay afloat.

In this battle to stay alive, the BlackBerry Aristo Z30/A10 plays an important role. Check out the latest video of the device by clicking on the video below. By the way, the device in the video flashed the AT&T logo although we've also seen a model with the Verizon logo as well. And no, you haven't gone deaf. The audio in the video is not English.

Lol, Apple aint the #1 man, Android rocks and if thats not enough, WP is more clean and fluid that iOS. The West is merely trying to promote its home based product just like the Bankruptberry. Take it or live it. If Apple fails to make amends right now, it might find itself in the shoes that Blackberry is wearing right now

Daftama: Perhaps you didn't get the memo, Apple is ranked #1 in ROIC (return on invested capital) in the OEMs space. Separately, Apple is also ranked #1 when it comes to customer satisfaction AND customer loyalty. Cheers.

I'll give you that #1 in customer satisfaction n maybe 1in roic... Smartphone is a bubble that just started and will crash like housing market did... Like any other bubble did... Regardless Apple is highly over priced product and good for them for building that status thanks enjoy your highly over priced product.. Could careless if they make a billion or a million still doesn't do me justice

Did i read ' #1 in Customer Satisfaction'? That is bulls****. I am not sure if you have used an Apple product for the first time

iOS around 15% Android around 80% Whatever you say there, Billy! :)

softfurryanus: Looking at market share by OS is just PLAIN DUMB. The correct way to look at it is market share of profits by OEMs. What is the point if you can't make an adequate ROIC in the business? If you continue to lose money, you will be forced to exit the business. Cheers.

don't bother lecturing softfurryanus about business, he's a fandroid, give him android+specs, he'll be happy as a clam. he won't care about performance or profits or anything else.

Not really impressed. I doubt it will stand against the rest of the competition.

Bb just concentrate on your qwerty handsets, I don't think your new flagships are selling well as expected. When I was at a mall with my friend, I showed her that I liked the z10 but she ignored the handset and point at the bold handset instead. She said she prefers the older model, because it had less gestures and was easier to operate and use

Too bad they can't pull their pants up at BB, I'd rather see them survive then WP for third place. That's just my feeling though, a former WM user an fan.

Will fail hard obviously with that kind of specs and selling it with premium price

They should take the nokia approach. Atleast nokia knowa its place on the market. You can't charge a premium price for an entry level device. And Nokia knows that even the flagships they make are stunted by windows phone rep compared to android and IOS. So yeah I think thwy are cloaing the door on it self. Going private will only delay the inevitable.
