Before we finally jump into the BlackBerry Z10 review, we should make note of a few caveats. As of writing, we’ve had the device for little over a week. Since we’ve been hammering the BlackBerry Z10 with tests, we haven’t been able to get a particularly clear idea of how it fares under calmer everyday usage, but it should do just fine. There’s a lot that’s bound to change after launch, particularly BlackBerry World app selection and a few squashed bugs. We’re going to be writing a LOT about the Z10 and BB10 over the weeks ahead – keep it locked to CrackBerry.
Take note – we’re writing this review for our CrackBerry audience – primarily for people who know BlackBerry and have been looking forward to “The Ten” as much as we have. It’s a new platform. We know there are still going to be some gaps. The bottom line is you want this phone and we’re helping you to better understand what you’re getting into. For a deep dive into the software side, be sure to check out our BlackBerry 10 walkthrough.
The BlackBerry Z10 is a full touchscreen phone with a 1280 x 768 4.2-inch display. It’s the first BlackBerry smartphone with LTE, and is launching globally with carriers around the world. The BlackBerry Z10 will be available in both black and white. As the official pricing and carrier rollouts gets announced, we’ll update this post.
