Introducing the BlackBerry Z10, the touchscreen-base phone. With a 4.2-inch display at 1,280 x 768 or 356 pixels, the Z10 actually has a better resolution than Apple’s heavily promoted Retina Display. Powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus processor with 2GB of RAM, along with a slew of features including microSD and micro SIM slots, Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n connectivity, and a removable battery.
The Blackberry Z10 is set to release to retailers in March. For more in depth info below is an article the New York Times wrote up about the phone.
The new Blackberry Messenger includes:
Avatar Support – set your own avatar using the camera or saved photos on your device
GPS location integration – you can now set permissions so friends can always see your location, have to request it each time, or never can see it
Proximity Sensor – will let you know if you’re within a certain distance of friends
Set Coversation Subjects – this allows you to organize your convos on the main messenger screen and label them with subjects ot keep track of all your conversations
Homescreen Support – you can pin/sticky actual Messenger contacts directly to the homescreen for easy access
The anticipation’s been building for months, and now the big day has finally arrived: The BlackBerry Bold is now available in the U.S. Battery life is excellent (outpacing that of the iPhone’s), and RIM’s first 3G offering is plenty fast with downloads and e-mailing. Unfortunately, there’s no centralized place to upgrade your software, at least not yet. (An App Store-like project is in the works for 2009.) Still, there’s plenty under the hood to justify the upgrade, not to mention a thinner body and chrome detailing. And re that much-discussed pleather backing: Yes, it’s ugly. But it’s also smudge-proof.
