BlackBerry® have been gearing up for the launch of their new generation BlackBerry Z10 device with the announcement of a brand new operating system BlackBerry 10, which the Z10 will run on. There’s been quite some excitement surrounding both the new system and this brand new smartphone, which is an all touch phone. We are just as excited to reveal that you’ll soon be able to get it on its perfect partner network. I say perfect, because this great new device is Ultrafast enabled. Meaning the experience you’ll have on this phone with our network, will be second to none.
BlackBerry phones were always known for their keyboards and whilst the physical buttons have disappeared in the Z10, they’ve still gone all out for an innovative touch keyboard. For really speedy and effortless typing, it actually learns and adapts to your typing style as you go. It anticipates the next word you’re going to type, and allows you to swipe the word into your message, or just ignore if you want!
Every aspect of this phone is about making things quick and easy and I think this can particularly be seen in the way it deals with all your social interactions. There’s one inbox for all your emails, social notifications and messages. Whether you’re streaming a film, playing a game or updating your status, if something comes in, you’re just one swipe away from viewing it in your inbox. If it’s only mum telling you to wrap up warm, you can easily swipe back to where you were and reply to her later
BBM™ has evolved too, so that not only can you enjoy everything you did before, but now there are some cool new features, such as BBM Video which allows you to talk face to face with your friends. BBM Video also includes Screen Share where you can share documents, your browser or anything else on your screen and even show your friends what you can see using the camera.
There’s a strong camera incorporated in to the Z10 too, with 8 megapixels and a clever feature called Time Shift which captures a sequence of shots when you take a picture. Then for each person in the picture you can select the frame that shows them at their best (or worst if you’re feeling cruel!) the Z10 then does the rest, merging them all together in to the perfect picture.
With a generous 4.2 screen, 16GB of internal memory and a Dual 1.5GHz processor, this first of the new generation BlackBerry phones has a lot going for it. Even more so when paired with Three’s Ultrafast network. For a closer look, check out our sneak peek.
