SIM free BlackBerry Z3 now available in the U.K.


When BlackBerry CEO John Chen took over from Thorsten Heins in November 2013, one of the first things he did was sign a deal with contract manufacturer Foxconn to produce a phone for emerging markets. Under the terms of the five-year pact, Foxconn designs, manufactures and stores each model. BlackBerry is responsible for promotion and for the software.

The first phone to roll off the Foxconn assembly line as part of this contract was the BlackBerry Z3. The phone was launched in Indonesia back in May, and was subsequently released in India, Malaysia, Singapore and other countries in the region. Now, the low cost 'Berry is making a big jump to the U.K. where smartphone retailer Clove is offering the device SIM free for the equivalent of $235 USD after tax.

The BlackBerry Z3 is equipped with a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 540 x 960. A dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU is under the hood, with the Adreno 305 GPU handling graphics. 1.5GB of RAM is inside along with 8GB of native storage. Those needing additional storage can use the 32GB capacity microSD slot. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 5MP and 1.1MP respectively and a 2500mAh battery keeps the lights on. BlackBerry 10 is pre-installed.

If you're looking for a low price, unlocked BlackBerry handset in the U.K., you can now pick up the BlackBerry Z3 from Clove by clicking on the sourcelink.
