Ah, memories. My first smartphone was a Blackberry several years ago. I loved it so much that I wanted to marry it. The Blackberry Messenger was my favorite feature and I used it daily to chat with my best friends on the go. It was such a novelty to me at the time!
I have since moved on to the Samsung Galaxy SIII and I will admit that I am quite attached. But I am thrilled to return to my “roots” by trying out the new Blackberry Z10 sent to me as part of the Verizon Wireless Ambassador program. For starters, the new Blackberry arrived in some fancy-smancy packaging accompanied by some great accessories.
Removing it from the box, the Blackberry Z10 fit nicely in my hand. My one problem with the Samsung Galaxy SIII is that I sometimes have a hard time maneuvering it with my small hands. The Z10 weighs only 4.78 ounces and measures 5.12″x2,58″x0.32″ (height/width/depth).
Because I am a heavy user of social media, I need a phone that can take great pictures and share them with ease. The Z10 is equipped with a 1280 x 768 resolution at 356 PPI camera and has the ability to switch between front and rear lenses. Another great feature for those of us traveling to blog events and conferences is that you can carry along a spare LS1 battery to power up your device if an outlet is not available. I also love that the device also has a micro HDMI port so I can share my pictures and video with family and friends by connecting to a HDTV!
In the next few posts, I will check out the usability of the Blackberry Z10 including the camera burst shooting mode, best apps and awesome accessories. In the meantime, I will be getting acquainted with my new phone!
