The latest BlackBerry Z10 pictures make you wish it were already 2013

The latest BlackBerry Z10 pictures make you wish it were already 2013
A day without a new series of pictures showing the upcoming BlackBerry Z10, is like a day without sunshine. So we would like to present to you your daily sunshine! We are now about a month away from the introduction of the BlackBerry 10 OS and it you can just imagine the excitement at RIM's headquarters in Waterloo.

The excitement and anticipation over BlackBerry 10 has overshadowed RIM 's most recent earnings report which revealed for the first time, a drop in the number of BlackBerry subscribers. What has analysts concerned is the new business model that has RIM getting a reduced amount of cash flow from carriers as fewer BlackBerry users require RIM's security measures with BlackBerry 10.

The latest speculation has the BlackBerry Z10 offering a 4.2 inch screen with resolution of 768 x 1280 with a high pixel density of 356ppi, well above the Retina display on the Apple iPhone 5. A dual-core 1.5GHz processor will be doing the heavy lifting and the U.S.models are expected to have the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 under the hood. 2GB of RAM is on board while there is 16GB of native storage that can be expanded using a hot swappable microSD slot. The 8MP camera on back captures video in 1080p while there is a 2MP front-facing shooter. An 1800mAh cell powers the device. The phone will have LTE connectivity and supports NFC.
 
The countdown to January 30th has begun!

Ok, here we go. I have followed this phones development over the past 8 months and I can tell by reading the comments that you have no idea what you are talking about. 1. The bezel of the phone is for the OS? It use gestures. No buttons on the front of the phone. 2. Blackberry is know for battery life. The new OS is very efficient, so it does not need the super large battery. What size is the battery in any of the iphones? 3. The phone has so many new features, The new time shift camera, the new keyboard where the words suggestive words appear above the next letter, flow, Peek feature, Active frames running real time. And many more. 4. Blackberry is going to have around 100,000 apps available at launch. (This does include some very popular titles also) A feat that no other phone manufacture has done. (with a whole new os and phone) 5. Verizon has already said they will carry the phone. 6. Its amazing how you can check and look at any of your messages without every having to stop what you are doing. No need to close a app. All of your messages are social messages are always updated in real time. Just peek to see what has changed. 7. There are many other features that are all new to blackberry, just do not have the time to continue to type. Go to youtube and check out some of the videos. You will be amazed at what this phone will do.

What I find about all the "this is midrange" comments is that its misinformed. The processor quoted is QUAD CORE. How many phones out there have quad core? Not that many. 2GB ram, am I mistaking that for mid range specs? I wasn't aware of 4GB+ ram phones having been released. 1280x768 resolution? Outside of the Oppo Find 5 and the HTC Droid DNA, Im not aware of any phones that surpass that resolution or have a higher DPI. 8MP/2MP cameras aren't any worse than what you'd see in the average high range device. The only thing "mid range" about it is the screen size itself. Im sure we will see phones that will surpass these specs in 2013, naturaly this will occur. However, unless we get 6-8 core phones with 1080p, 4+GB ram, etc. by the time this phone comes out, I'd still consider it a high range, not mid range.

All of us need to quit being a bunch of jack offs until we actually see the new OS and how the new OS works. The thing hasn't even been introduced yet and all of you are predicting the future and calling it a fail. I actually still use my Droid X because I think Apple sucks and is behind on their OS system. It has hardly changed since 2007, not because it's good, but because Apple is good at brain washing all of you morons into thinking you're cool. Android works great for me, but I'm still yearning for more and I hope BB can do that again. I loved blackberry until they got behind and they quit making apps for it. That's the only reason I left. If BB10 ends up having more of the apps I like, I will go there in a heart beat. If they don't, then I'm leaning towards W8. Steve Jobs should have took the iphone with him to the grave...

if having a preference is considered being brainwashed then we are all brainwashed based on your logic. to make such a blanket statement about iOS users is ignorance 101.

it's a Blackberry people. innovation perished for them a long time ago, they are just trying to keep their heads above water. hopefully they don't go the way of WP8 & take it past the point of innovation into a completely weird OS. i like the Lumia 920, but would like it a lot more if it ran Android vs the software misfit WP8 (or apparently Windows Blue). if Blackberry to can step a little past their usual mundane...then i think they might have a chance at survival.

Black Berry could of done a bit better with battery life lot of people are going to complain bout that.

The power button is on the top. Terrible. It belongs on the right side, near the top.

Maybe this phone will take some of the heat off of Samsung, cause it'd be a travisty if Apple doesn't sue the pants off of RIM considering this thing looks exactly like the I5!

You have a point but then, Apple, I think, will only sue RIM if the phone sells ~O.O~

How big is the iPhone battery? Wait... why do I even care? I am around a wall socket all day...

The device kinda looks like a Droid X that's had the BB10 OS hacked onto it, but without the buttons at the bottom. I'm thinking that RIM is really going to be trying to play catch up with a device like this. Dual-core S4, 2GB RAM, 4.2in 720p display, but we will still have to wait and see how well built and how user friendly BB10 is.

Do you guys even know that this is a mid range phone? Its not suppose to compete with iphone 5 or optimus g or gs3. If i remember correctly theres a phone called aristo that rim is working on. Which will be the high end device for rim.. And stop hating on bb10, you dont even know what it can and cannot do. Dont knock it till you've tried it fools...

35. InspectorGadget80 unregistered

Black Berry needs at least a 4.7" sreen 720P HD SUPER LCD 2 OR AMOLED. QUAD CORE TEGRA 3 or SNAP DRAGON 4. And a good battery life like 3200 or 2800 maH.

Well the aristo that was mentioned before on this site has a bigger screen, quad core processor and a bigger battery. 2800mah i think
