BlackBerry Z10, the first smartphone to run the BlackBerry 10 OS is here! BlackBerry 10 is a revolutionary platform capable of delivering over and above Android and iOS. The most surprising feature of BlackBerry Z10 is, it has no home button. Surprising, ain’t it? The BlackBerry Z10 consolidates email, messaging and notification into a Hub that requires the users to think of those functions differently. With amazing BlackBerry Z10 features and specifications, the smartphone has effect on you from the first second that you set your eyes on it.
BlackBerry Z10 Look: It is a little surprising that the BlackBerry Z10 looks very similar to the iPhone 5, with similar proportions and virtually identical design including the famous rounded edges. But the similarity ends there. The BlackBerry Z10 has a rubberised back panel which ensures that the phone does not slip away from butterfingers! The removable back panel gives quick access to SIM card, MicroSD memory and let’s you swap spare battery very quickly. Volume buttons on the side have an indented shape enabling you to identify them easily by touch. The 4.2-inch LCD with a resolution of 1,280 x 768, resulting in ultra-crisp text, resulting in rich colour on photos and games.
BlackBerry Z10 Hardware: Powered by 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM, BlackBerry Z10 enables fluid finger movements. App crashes will occur rarely. More rarely than those that occur in Android or iOS enabled phones.
BlackBerry Z10 Hub: Revolutionising the way users think of mobile messaging, RIM has introduced Hub into BlackBerry 10, which puts all communicative apps in one giant Inbox. Starting from email, messenger, to social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter will appear in a single stream. With this, the user can avoid switching between different apps to deal with communication. You can choose to display any of the account at one time, while keeping others turned off.
Going to the Hub is easy of you follow two steps: swipe up from the bottom, then swipe rightward from the left edge. Swiping up is actually the gesture for minimizing your app, putting it on a page with all other apps the phone is running at any given time — what RIM calls Active Frames. When minimized, an app remains running, and you can resume exactly as you left it. This kind of multitasking, without taxing battery life, is one of BlackBerry 10′s strengths, which the iOS has failed to achieve.
