And right now, we have got our hands on the brand new Blackberry Z30.
Now, this device hasn't actually shipped yet but it should be available for the holiday season.
It's gonna be shipping probably in a few weeks in the UK and the Middle East.
So what's really interesting about the Z30 is that it has a very large 5-inch Super AMOLED at 720p HD
resolution screen here and that's a very big screen for a Blackberry.
Right now most Android devices support that or have this kind of screen.
But Blackberry is now taking steps into that big screen market.
What's really cool is the Z30 has a Blackberry 10.2, the latest version of the Blackberry 10 OS and what's really important on here is the Blackberry Hub, which is been re-tweaked and enhanced.
It's now called the priority Hub.
And so what it does, is it all
put your messages from across all different social media platforms or e-mail your texts, BBM, all that stuff and it'll kinda see what you're looking at, who you're talking to and raise all your messages that are more important up on the front.
So you can see, you know, exactly who you wanna talk to first and you don't have to, you know, waste time just, you know, looking at spam and all that kind of stuff.
So right now we're looking at this Blackberry Z30, which actually has this case here, which is an add-on accessory.
It's not gonna actually ship with this, so it
looks a little thicker.
But as you can see, [unk] also be thin and it has such a massive display and it's very responsive, very quick.
I believe it has a dual-core S4 Pro processor Snapdragon, what's what I'm thinking and, you know, it's very responsive.
Has most of the apps you're looking for though.
Unfortunately, Blackberry 10 has been devoid of the lot of major apps that, you know, people can enjoy on Android or iOS.
But they're trying to change that by bringing in support for Android officially and some other apps support over to the device.
So there you have it folks.
We just took a first look at the Blackberry Z30.
Now, this device does not have a price officially announced yet.
But hopefully it'll be around maybe $199 or $250, somewhere in there and it's gonna be shipping with the next few weeks in the UK and the Middle East first and hopefully it'll be brought over to other additional markets
like the US.
