BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 officially announced

Finally! RIM, or should I say BlackBerry, has officially announced its first BlackBerry 10 smartphones – the full-touch Z10 and the keyboard-equipped Q10.

For those who want a full-touchscreen experience, the BlackBerry Z10 offers 4.2-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 768 which equates to 356 ppi. It sports a dual-core TI OMAP 4470 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front-facing, 16GB of internal storage. microSD card support up to 32GB, Micro HDMI, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, WiFi a/b/g/n, LTE, and a removable 1,800 mAh battery.

Next is the BlackBerry Q10 which is equipped with a QWERTY physical keyboard and an “edge-to-edge” glass. It has a 3.1-inch super AMOLED touchscreen display with 720 x 720 resolution at 330ppi. Like the Z10, the Q10 also has an 8 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front-facing, 16GB of internal storage with microSD card support, Bluetooth, WiFi and LTE.

Both handsets will run the new BlackBerry 10 OS which include new features such as BlackBerry Hub, an improved BlackBerry Keyboard, BlackBerry Messenger with Voice Chat and Screen Share, BlackBerry Balance and BlackBerry Remember.

Local pricing and availability are still unknown but Thorsten Heins mentioned that price points depend on carrier partners.

    That’s it too.

    I’ll get the Q10.

    My 2 year contract with Globe ends this April-May, so renewal it is if BB10 comes to Globe.

    in my opinion, sumikat lang BB kasi

    1. nakalagay sa link sa Facebook pag nag uupdate ng status eh “via Blackberry Smartphones”

    2. BBM

    3. like iphone, mahal din sya so pag meron ka, mayaman ka..

    just my thoughts. :)

    • Drew says:

      Sikat naman BB sa business world. Di lang nakikita kasi di naman kailangan i-display yung BB.

      Saka kung di ka mag-avail ng BB service walang kwenta din yung phone.

    Buhay pa pala ang Blackberry… Parang iSheep din ang mga gumagamit nito hehehe, maraming mga “pasosyal” kuno dito sa Pinas.

    • a.c. says:

      sinong nagsabi pasyosyal ang blackberry considering its reasonably priced for its functionality unlike apple’s over priced china made products? the blackberry which is manufactured in canada is worth every bucks with its funtionality. it was never a pasyosyal unless getting calls and emails on the go is pasyosyal to you which is understandable considering you are from a third world country like my parents. duh!

    • aze says:

      @a.c. before kasi almost kasing presyo ng iphone yan. mas kilala pa nga sila kesa sa apple, kaya mas sikat sila sa smartphone business or hindi pa siguro smartphone ang tawag dati, nung dumating satin yan dito, konti lang ang nakakakilala at parang pasosyal nga ang dating pag pinagmamalaki mo ang blackberry, but lately dahil bulok na ang blackberry, nag offer sila ng lowend para sa masa wherein sabi mo nga functionality ang focus. ngayon sinasalvage nila na sana makabawi sila. sakin lang ha, parang ang pangit nung itsura nung touchscreen mukhang nokia asha, hahaha.

    • frhw says:

      Para sa akin ang mga expensive na cell phone is a peace of junk dahil mostly text,call,camera lang ang gamit,kung social networking eh di mag iPad na lang ako mas useful.

    • Digest says:

      Well said frhw. Mga high end cellphones eh pasosyal lang or social status symbol. lol Tapos ang iba jan nka pre-paid then wala naman load. lol Mga ipokrito.

    • wolfpac says:

      peace of junk daw..akala ko piece of junk hehe piece

    • mico says:

      SOSYAL BA ? O MGA TANGA LANG ?

      IMAGINE SA SUBRANG KAMAHALAN NG PRICE NITO PHONE NA TO AY DI MAN LANG INISIP NG MANUFACTURER KUNG ILANG ORAS LANG ITATAGAL NG BATTERY NITONG 1800mAh?
      KAKALOKA!

    • Ivan says:

      Expensive cellphones are junk? Mag-ipad na lang?. Go ahead and try bringing that gigantic device anywhere you go. Try putting those tablets in your pockets too. Bitter lang ang iba because they obviously can’t afford high end cellphones

    • Drew says:

      Ano ba yung pasosyal?

      Ako kasi gamit ko BB sa work lang, email at internet on the go, wala pa rin ibang cellphone na makakapat sa email service ng BB. Meron din akong android phone, yan gamit ko pang personal at nakikiconect ng internet sa BB kung kailangan lang.

      Yung mga ayaw sa BB siguro prepaid lang gamit nyo kaya hindi nyo magagamit ng ayus BB, kaya huwag yung BB sisihin nyo.

    My love, you’ve finally came back. I have this thing with an old flame Cokia but she’s so bland and vapid unlike you. You are gorgeous and fresh but since you’re here, I want you now more than ever. We’ll be together at last…Oh la la

  7. r3JAM says:

    Sana it would not be that expensive and sana Globe will offer it!

  8. Kami says:

    bakit lagi na lang may mga kontra? either kulang lang sa attention or masyado ang bilib sa mga units na ginagamit nila?

    parang Alcatel Glory something yung Z10, para lang naman…

    pero im happy na at last nilabas na nila. i think same with Windows phones and iOS, hindi maxadong extensive ang processing needs (i think lang ha) ng blackberry kaya dual core lang, right?

    THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A PLACE FOR BLACKBERRY! hindi dahil sa FANATICS but because of its TRUSTED USABILITY AND DEPENDABILITY.

    i am using iphone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3 right now, by the way.

    pero parang trip ko to. XD

    No gorilla glass daw ito. Tsk….

  10. Kel says:

    Wala daw gorilla glass ito. Plain glass lang kaya?

      Gorilla Glass is just a brand. Many screens without it work just as fine.

    • Red says:

      K lang kung hindi gorilla glass. Pero, pano kung nabagsak face down? Basag?? Gusto lang ng mga peeps gorilla glass kasi talagang matibay lang talaga, hindi sa brand brand lang.

  11. maclovin says:

    Haaayyy! Another IPHONE COPYCAT! Kamukha lang sya ng IPHONE5! Yuck!

  12. Yahweh says:

    Katawa ang mga naka Blackberry dito. Bawat minuto may post na sa Facebook or Twitter para lang masulit ang binabayad sa BB Social.

    • Tambay says:

      Tama lang naman yun a. Kaya ka nga bumili ng smartphone d ba. Para connected ka lagi in a modern way. Hindi yung naka smartphone nga hanap naman ng hanap ng libreng wifi.

    • Karima says:

      Ulol! Defensive kayong mga naka Blackberry na walang ginawa kundi mag post ng inyong mga kabaklaan minu-minuto.

    • Karima says:

      Ulol! Defensive kayong mga naka Blackberry na walang ginawa kundi mag post ng inyong mga kabaklaan minu-minuto. Porke yan lang ang magawa ng phone niyo.

  13. iVan says:

    The z10 looks like the iPhone 5. I see a lawsuit coming.

    • venee says:

      Horridly anticipating! Wonder how it’ll hit Blackberry esp now that they are in the down low. Dont get me wrong, I’m a BB and PB user but sometimes I get disappointed for not getting some apps!and geez slow upgrades..

  14. apir says:

    @wolfpac, haha apir! (piece man)

  15. apir says:

    @Yahweh, ok lang yun, kaya nga nila binili para gamitin dba.

  16. aki says:

    POOREST BATTERY FOR A HIGH END PHONE TODAY!

    1800mAh????????? Vs. .3000mAh of LG Pro.

  17. Samsung Lover says:

    Dami naman reklamo ng iba. :p

    Pangit cam, weak battery. Ano pa?

    Malamang di pa nakakagamit ng Black Berry yung mga nagsasabi nun.

    Bakit ka nga naman bibili ng Black Berry eh camera naman pala habol mo? DSLR na lang bilhin mo.

    Weak battery? Wala ba chrger yung Black Berry na bibilhin mo?

    Kung wala kang pambili tumahimik ka na lang.
