The BlackBerry Z10 has been announced for awhile now, and I’d like to share a few quick thoughts on the new Crown Jewel of BlackBerry (Formally known as RIM).
In my opinion the overall hardware design of the BlackBerry Z10 is quite nice, much better than the mostly plastic devices that we see from the Android world, but I feel (and again this is my opinion) that the overall design of this device falls short of what we have seen from the WP8, and Apple Camps, although one could argue that the BlackBerry Z10 has pulled some design cues from the iPhone. Either way this is a great beginning to a new BlackBerry.
70,000 plus apps at launch is a great way to start a new/redesigned platform even if most of them are Android carbon copies But I’d like to see more featured (big time) apps like Instagram etc.
This part is a little odd for me $199.99 (which is the speculated US price) is Normally reserved for the high end class of smartphone, which the BlackBerry Z10 is without a doubt, however, BlackBerry is up against the ropes and needs this to be a huge success. The question that I assume a lot of people will be asking is, “why would I pay 200 for a BlackBerry when I could buy a iPhone or Samsung galaxy s3 (or s4 when it’s released) for the same price” I’m no marketing wiz but I’d Price this thing at $99.99 because that would help people at least take a look at the BlackBerry Z10. I just fear that at the current rumored price point the phone won’t be given a chance, and the only people that buy will be diehard BlackBerry users and I’m sorry but that’s not enough!
I know I skipped software I’m saving that for its own post after all it is completely new
