The New Blackberry Z10

Finally, a new Blackberry Z10 mobile phone to rival apple and android devices emerges.  Research In Motion has gone with the flow of new mobile gadgets without the ugly and bulky physical keyboard. And like most of the mobile phone manufacturers that favoured virtual user's input interface, RIM decided to make use of all the length and width of it's new smartphone to use for touch user's input. This is really a smart move. And for the fans that are expecting a qwerty physical keyboard would need to wait for a while for the unveiling of the Q10 after sometime.

Processor, Screen Resolution, RAM

The new BB Z10 has a 4.2-inch 1280 x 768 display with 356 ppi resolution, 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and external micro sd card slot, and a full dimension of 130mm x 65.6mm x 9mm, slightly larger that the iPhone 5. So what's the "like" factor of this new device? 

The screen resolution of the Z10 is higher than that of  the iPhone5 and Samsung S3. Although the difference will only be noticeable when zooming in on photo's or documents, the Z10 has certainly beaten that of the apple's 326 ppi and The Samsung Galaxy's 306 ppi  in this aspect.  The dual processor running at a fast 1.5GHz, is built for the multitasking user. Compared to the iPhone 5 which is believed to have 1.3 GHz and the S3's 1.4GHz speed, the new comer is faster. Combined with 2GB of RAM,  which is more than the 1GB RAM packed with the iPhone5, will keep the opened programs running smoothly, launching and closing apps easily. Another plus factor is the removable battery, which is handy and more practical when it's time for the device to have a new power plant, it is easier and cheaper to replace. The phone can take up to 32GB of additional storage with the allocation of a micro SD card slot. This is a real envy to the fixed memory apple fans that are limited to their device's capacity.

Operating System, Interesting Feature

Going into it's innards, the Z10 is running the new BlackBerry OS 10 that critics say it is responsive and it's layout interface looks way much better that the older versions. It also included useful and interesting features like the BlackBerry Hub, where all communications and other notifications reside, whether that's a text message, tweet, email or social networking notification, users will just need to access one place, and that's the BB Hub. Another interesting and useful new feature is the way the virtual keyboard suggests words while you tap away the letters whilst composing a message. You can just touch the predicted word to use it, making you finish your message in no time. Click this clip to see how it works.

Connectivity, Battery life, Camera

Existing and future technology is also built in, like the presence of 4G, incorporation of NFC, and the earlier connectivity interface like bluetooth and WiFi. Wired connection port includes micro usb that doubles as charging and data transfer port and micro HDMI for external monitor output.

With the snapdragon processor, known for it's efficient power management, the phone can keep user's using 3G connection for up to 10 hours, and 305 hours on standby. Music listeners can have up to 60 hours non stop audio playback or can finish 5 movies of 2 hours each before looking for mains socket.
