Render of BlackBerry Z30 shows it branded with Verizon name
While the BlackBerry Z30 has already been released overseas, we have seen limited information on where the new flagship 'Berry might end up in the states. Back in June, when the device was known as the A10, Sprint said to count it in for a November launch of the phone. That was the last we had heard about a U.S. launch of the device until last month when it was revealed that the BlackBerry Z30 had visited the FCC dressed in Verizon colors.

On Sunday morning while most of you were sleeping, we were hunched over our QWERTY keyboard, hard at work to tell you about a render of the BlackBerry Z30 posted by evleaks via one of the popular social networking sites. The image shows the BlackBerry Z30 wearing Verizon branding. While this is the first 5 inch BlackBerry model, and is the most powerful one of all time, it might not be enough to get iOS or Android users to switch. And with Nokia introducing some pretty powerful new models including the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet, BlackBerry has some more problems to worry about besides the duopoly.

With a number of pretty powerful tech giants circling around BlackBerry, you couldn't blame the Canadian OEM if it were distracted. Still, we expect to see the BlackBerry Z30 launched in the U.S. in time for that all-important holiday shopping season.

Looking like Verizon managed to squeeze that front logo again and it looks just as forced as the G2. Which is to say...tacky.

Lumia is so lame except Cam and Maps. I don’t see any big differences between this and my 920! Little hardware upgrades which wasn’t needed OS is SMOOTH as HELL… Minor update!! Yeah good luck with that still Lack years behind BB10 OS BB10 Drives Circles Around it easily.

do you really need to say that? the reason people dislike, hate is too strong of a word, is because its way overpriced. There is not enough app support and all their exclusivity/specialities are either available on other platforms or there are better apps out there (like bbm or its business suite of apps) and their UI is much like android or ios, with minor tweaks (like what samsung, lg, htc and other oems typically do anyways)... people wont like a phone if its liike the rest, especially when its worse than the rest. There is nothing special for someone to buy into.

Man this is truely sad. This looks like a great device with a great OS. However EXCEPTIONAL I don't think so which is why I dont see it doing well. people are already developing bias toward the phone maker which is a shame. I wonder how many apps they have?? I might buy out of pitty then frame it as a point in history.

Do they still make Blackberry devices? (Honest question not trolling) I thought they were dead, right?

Why does Verizon have to ruin the look of their phones with logos EVERYWHERE!
