Meet BlackBerry Z10, The First Full Touchscreen BlackBerry – The Specs

blackberry z10

When the struggling phone maker BlackBerry (previously RIM) announced in January that they were releasing BlackBerry Z10, many thought this were the last kicks of a dying donkey. Many didn’t think that they would be of any significance change in the already android-flooded market. Many waited for it to fail but this seems not to be the case.

Recent report shows that the device is doing perfectly well. This seems to be a fortune changer for blackberry having had 1 million Z10 devices shipped in the last quarter; this was above the 915,000 that analysts had been expecting for the quarter that ended March 2. The figure is even better after considering that those sales were only made to Asia as the phone just joined the US market.

So what is the game changer all about?
