BlackBerry Z10

Description

The Z10 is a fully touchscreen BB10 device sporting modern specs, with cool patterned soft-touch material on the back. The screen is 4.2" LCD with 1280 x 768 pixels, making for a pixel density of 356 pixels per inch. A 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and 2 GB of RAM are the power under the hood, and there are 16 GB of internal storage, as well as the all-important microSD card slot. You will need all the RAM, because BB10 is a true multitasking system, like Android, so everything remains how you left it, or moves on under the hood, but is available at all times.

This device is also known as BlackBerry Surfboard, BlackBerry London, BlackBerry STL100-4
