  2. It’s really good and useful article.

    I guess Blackberry will close the gap with its rivals; samsung and apple with this smart-phone 🙂

    We’re waiting for new articles.

    Greetings..

  3. Hi,
    Nice features..
    I think this smart phone will give the high competition to the Samsung and apple..
    eagerly waiting to have it

  4. This is one phone I have been waiting for since a long time. Blackberry has made it place in the heart of the people with its good looking handsets and the features it provides. After reading your post, I am more keen on buying this amazing Blackberry Z10 smartphone.

  5. The features are really great but it is bit expensive, I still wish Blackberry would have aimed for a lightly skinned Android OS, but with their best features like BBM and Email. Seriously.

    • Compared to the smartphones at market, the BB Z10 doesn’t seem as expensive, anyway, its according to your budget. Thanks for commenting.

  6. I have fallen for Blackberry 10 and it really looks so amazing. A smartphone cannot be smarter than this. The features are wonderful. However, I feel it is a little over priced in comparison to other efficient phones and tablets. They should compromise on the price a little.

    • The unlock version is around $600, maybe the onces on carrier’s mart will be cheaper with contract conditions. Thanks for your comment.
