Earlier today, BlackBerry launched their newest flagship smartphone in the Philippines — the BlackBerry Z10. BlackBerry also announced that all 3 carriers (Globe, Smart, Sun) will be offering the handset on a BB plan.

The BlackBerry Z10 will be available in stores starting March 19 with a suggested retail price of Php29,990.

    I think the way to revive an ailing company as BB is to bring the price closer to what the people can afford. But placing BB z10 at such a premium price might turn off some buyers, because there are lots of brands coming out with great or even greater specs phones out there for a few thousand less. If BB will lower their price for z10, m sure lots of people will buy it, because BB has a following here in the Philippines.

    If this is 18-20k, baka bumili pa ako. But at 29k, its too much

  3. crome says:

    Bobo lang and walang alam ang bibili nito.

  4. lol says: that battery capacity true? then i think it wont last long on long journeys…better get a portable battery pack with this.

  5. LOL says:

    Mas maraming tanga ang nagbayad ng 45k nung ni-release ang iPhone 5. Amiiiniiin! Haha

    hay naku, napansin ko lang, pag may bagong reviews ang blog na to sa mga gadget halos lahat ng nag-comment kung makasulat parang nakabili na, may angas na kasi kung react.

  8. techatbp says:

    anong rason para bilin to kung merong ibang mas feature rich na phone? dahil ba good looking? dahil ba black berry? dahil ba BBM?

    anyway, WIN nokia 206 by clicking my name

  9. dodong says:

    if you’re speaking from a purely android-based pov, yes this is lacking. but then again, this has always been the trend with device manufacturers using android, pataasan ng specs kasi they do not own the OS. do not judge BB10 based on specs alone (dual core). check it out and let yourself be blown away by their software. BB10 and WP8 are the way forward.

    • BLACK says:

      bat ang init ng ulo mo at super defensive ka? hahaha.. oh you’re wasting time pala? but i really awe knowing you got a time to response for a comment like this. (at double post ka pa.) :P

    • Reader says:

      “but i really awe knowing”? WTF!
      Sablay English mo pre. Balik ka muna sa school.

    • dudsss says:

      may awe naman talaga na word. kulang lang sya na “d” bka typo.. sabay kayo balik ng school. hakhak

  12. koolpinoy says:

    @Black I own a Z10 at puro kasinungalingan sinasabi mo. daming bad reviews? sige nga asan ang reference mo? make sure na hindi yan iOS or Android biased na sites.

    • BLACK says:

      ows? do u own? lumang style na yan. hahaha.. wala ka ngang picture eh! HAHAHA andaming reviews sa mga site, hanapin mo! baka mashock ka.. :P

    • zvp6 says:

      @Black: Ganun naman talaga ang blackberry. Kumakain ng tanga yun kagaya mo. And kahit sinong first timer sa BB10 e siyempre mangangapa pa yun.

      Sana lang nilagay na lang nila sa 20-23k range.

      Maicheck to sa Recto (bagsakan ng mga brand new phones na walang warranty)

      Siguro mga nasa 18k to. :))

  13. LOL says:

    @BLACK so san ka magiinvest, cherry mobile na naman>

    • BLACK says:

      with all due respect Mr. cherry mobile man, I am referring to this particular phone which is not a good investment after all. with that price range of 29k+, i can purchase similar specs and performance but can allocate extra bucks on my pocket.

    • Papa says:

      HAHAHAHAHA! Benta tong si Black! :))) ganyan naman ang mga dialog ng mga walang pambili eh :)))) gawa ka naman ng review sa cherry mobile Flare mo oh :))))

    • BLACK says:

      hihihihii Papa,, bakit di kayo maka get-over sa cherry mobile flare na yan? bakit meron ba kayo? sorry ha, i dont know even know that. lolz

    • BOBO ni BLACK says:

      bobo mo mag-english MR BLACK

      “sorry ha, i dont know even know that.”


  14. BLACK says:

    daming bad reviews ang BB Z10. it’s not even user-friendly and way too pricey. buying this phone is a bad investment.

    • anon says:

      @black, investment ba ang phone? hahaha cheap!

    • BLACK says:

      ni hindi mo nga alam ang term na investment anon. hihihi

    • jong says:

      hindi investment ang gadget,. wrong term yan,
      hind nmn yan mg earn, in fact it will depreciate in a few months lng,.

    • CP4rent says:

      baka may phone rental service itong si itim kaya expect nya may ROI sa CP nya hihihi

    • Techjunkeez says:

      if gagamitin mo to for reloading, ur making it worse as an investment. phone rental pwede pero gudluck. expensive phones is/was never considered an investment. sabihin mo price mo sa sariling sikap.

    • von says:

      black didn’t literally mean “investment”… if you guys don’t know what he meant by investment then shut the fuck up and stop bashing comments

    • Jerwin J. Paglicawan says:

      @von: AMEN!!

    • Reader says:

      Prize = premyo
      Price – presyo

      Be more discerning next time you post. Ayan tuloy, napahiya ka.

  15. E says:

    Expensive, no way…

    • dan_md says:

      I think the price is just right for a flagship. The specs are really not bad. 2GB RAM, 720p display, and LTE. Something new and interesting for the enterprise segment of the market to deploy. I wish BB all the luck with this product.
      off topic: the Nokia Lumia 920 is currently the most competitively priced flagship selling at P27K with an excellent screen and nicely-performing camera.

    • origOS says:

      BB is one of the few brands with their OWN OS. 29K is a good price. Kung nakikisabit ka lang ng OS e.g. android…… what do you expect? delayed or no updates at all

  16. Papa says:

    So this means magkaka micro sim na ng LTE yeeeeey!! :)
