BlackBerry Z10

The Z10 is a fully touchscreen BB10 device sporting modern specs, with cool patterned soft-touch material on the back. The screen is 4.2″ LCD with 1280 x 768 pixels, making for a pixel density of 356 pixels per inch. A 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and 2 GB of RAM are the power under the hood, and there are 16 GB of internal storage, as well as the all-important microSD card slot. You will need all the RAM, because BB10 is a true multitasking system, like Android, so everything remains how you left it, or moves on under the hood, but is available at all times.shafkatworkphoto

It wasn’t long ago that Blackberry’s were the top dog when it came to smart phones. Products like the Curve and Blackberry Bold were the phone to have. Over the years though, as the Apple iPhone and Android phones became much more user and budget friendly Blackberry started to fade away, at least out of the individual user market. Due to the business nature of BlackBerry phones and the ability to remotely wipe business data off of the phone while leaving personal data intact, BlackBerry has still been strong in the corporate market. With the launch of the BlackBerry Z10 I’m sure they are hoping that the Blackberry Z10 will bring them back into the mainstream spotlight.
The BlackBerry Z10 is no slouch in features or specifications. BlackBerry Z10 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core 1.5GHz processor. This is a very popular processor, and there’s good reason for that. The S4 dual-core processor is very capable of chewing through day to day tasks with plenty of speed. Backing up the processor is 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. If the initial 16GB of storage isn’t enough for you a 32GB microSD card can be added. The screen on the BlackBerry Z10 isn’t the largest that we have come across, but it is a comfy 4.2? with a resolution of 1280×768. The BlackBerry Z10 is relatively light weighing in at only 4.78 ounces and measures only 130×65.6x9mm (5.12×2.58x.35 inches)

Designed with a spacious 4.3 inch touchscreen, the Z10 offers fluid gestures on a High Definition display.  Experience the latest BlackBerry 10 OS powered by a responsive 1.5GHz dual-core processor; the perfect combination to keep you on top of your day.shafkatworkphoto

The BlackBerry Hub is your home for messages, emails and social updates and can be accessed from any application in a single swipe. It’s multi-tasking in its purest form. The BlackBerry Messenger service is back and now lets you video call your friends. You can even share what’s on screen to a contact on the other side of the world.

BlackBerry Hub
BlackBerry Hub acts as a notification center, with the user’s entire social and email accounts integrated into one app. These include, at launch, standard E-mail client, Twitter, Facebook, BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), and LinkedIn (with options to turn any of these services off). Standard notifications like missed calls, voicemail, and system updates also appear on the hub. The hub can be accessible from any app/lock screen, by performing an upside down j-hook gesture.   Users can perform various tasks like compose emails, send emails, and browse social networks, without accessing other apps. Developers are also given options to integrate apps into the Blackberry Hub.

BlackBerry Balance
BlackBerry Balance is a new feature introduced in BlackBerry 10, enabling users to keep both personal data and office work data separated in its own spaces. Using Blackberry Enterprise Server 10, IT departments can allow users to set up work-spaces that automatically install applications and email accounts. After completion, users can navigate between personal and work profiles, by swiping down on the apps page. All of the user’s data is secured via 256-bit AES encryption, and any files created will stay within the profile partition.

Time Shift Camera
BlackBerry 10 features camera software that takes multiple frames of every photo. This feature allows users to adjust a photo easily to correct issues such as closed eyes.

BBM Video/Screen Share
BlackBerry’s popular messaging application now includes the ability to video chat as well as the ability to share the contents of a user’s BlackBerry screen with others.

Android Player
The Android player allows BlackBerry 10 Smarpthones to run some applications designed for the Android Operating System

Keyboard
BlackBerry 10 features a new virtual keyboard layout that mimics BlackBerry’s past generation’s physical keyboards.  The letters and numbers feature fonts and frets similar to previous BlackBerry devices. The keyboard also learns the user’s typing preferences, trying to auto-predict the next word. The keyboard also uses contextual information to predict the next letter in a word sequence. In this case, words will appear above the letter that the OS thinks that the user will touch next. Users can then perform a flicking upwards gesture above the letter to quickly select that word.  Also, swiping from right to left in keyboard deletes the entire word rather than using backspace to delete each character.

Bundled applications
Blackberry 10 features a number of included applications that help users perform various tasks and activities. These include maps, Web browser, Remember (Sticky notes app), Docs to Go, Story Maker (video and music stitching app), calculator, clock, music, media, weather, and file manager. Cloud service integrations like Box and Dropbox are also integrated by default. In addition, BlackBerry’s popular messaging service, BlackBerry Messenger is included with BlackBerry 10.

Third Party Applications
At the time of the release in January 2013, BlackBerry 10 operating system had 70,000 third party applications. This represents a substantial increase over the BlackBerry PlayBook which launched with only 3,000 third party applications.  In end of March 2013, BlackBerry 10 has 100,000 apps, but still less of imaging favorites like Instagram and Snapseed.

Distribution
Unlike the previous BlackBerry OS (but similar to the BlackBerry PlayBook), applications must be downloaded through BlackBerry’s BlackBerry World storefront, which comes included with BlackBerry 10.

BlackBerry PlayBook

The article will provide a user with information and guidance on BlackBerry Playbook. The BlackBerry PlayBook is a 7in tablet that runs a bespoke operating system written specifically for the device. It’s a very pick-up-able 425g light and is both well-built and attractively styled. It also has high specifications.  The BlackBerry PlayBook is a 7in tablet that runs a bespoke operating system written specifically for the device. It’s a very pick-up-able 425g light and is both well-built and attractively styled.

It is pocketable and it is light enough and it has a good quality digital photo frames, the glassware is touch-sensitive from edge to edge.  With a 1GHz dual-core processor, 16GB of onboard storage, Wi-Fi and a 5Mp camera, the BlackBerry PlayBook has an impressive hardware line-up. A second, 2Mp camera, acts as a webcam and can be used for video chat. The camera is fine, but the very nature of this being a slab of electronics means it’s not exactly a precision instrument. The video player is more impressive: the PlayBook supports 1080p playback and the resolution is tight.  The Playbook comes with a  smart but fixed territory mains adaptor.

Usability and navigation

The PlayBook runs a bespoke QNX operating system known as the BlackBerry Tablet OS.  If a user wants to click on an option such as Pictures or Music and there are multiple items in the library, the PlayBook pops up a trio of options that sits above but doesn’t entirely obscure the main menu. A user can drag backwards through screens and items that he/she has browsed, but also across different apps.

Gaming joy

The PlayBook also has some quality graphics hardware under the hood and this comes into its own when playing games.  Using the drag and scroll method, a user can peer at an object from any angle and zoom in for a close-up.

Smartphone pairing

Setting up the PlayBook when a user first unpacks, it involves logging on to an available Wi-Fi network and then setting up a BlackBerry account.  A user uses the PlayBook as a larger and more practical screen for watching videos, surfing the web and so on. The screen crams in 1,024×600 pixels into its 7in display and there’s support for both HTML5 and for Adobe Flash 10.1.

A user can use the tablet perfectly well without having to tether or otherwise be linked to a phone. Unlike, say, the nameless dock for the Motorola Atrix Android smartphone, the PlayBook is a compelling interactive communication terminal in its own right.

BlackBerry Torch 9800

The article will provide a user with information on Blackberry Torch 9800. The Blackberry Torch has got an improved BlackBerry 6.0 OS, touchscreen and slide out keyboard combination works well. 

The display of the phone can be divided up into sections and each can be tapped to bring up relevant content. The top area contains signal strength indicators and the time and date, and touching here takes a user to a settings menu for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The bottom area lets a user drag it up to view all icons and a user can also scroll left and right to view filters such as All, Favorites, Media, Downloads, and Frequent. A user can create folders and move apps into them, but the hold and select approach feels clunky compared to the slick animations of iOS4.

A single inbox contains messages from all users accounts and the social networking feeds. A user has also got an opportunity to have separate inboxes for each account. By holding down on a message a menu pops up providing support for Gmail specific features such as Labels.  The universal search icon makes it quick to type something and search either BlackBerry App World, YouTube, Google or on the device itself.
The browser is Webkit-based and much more capable, for web pages and email it appears hamstrung simply by the raw speed of the device, limited as it is to 624Mhz.

The Torch is the first BlackBerry to offer both a touchscreen and a physical keyboard. It supports multi-touch and pinch to zoom. The keyboard slides down neatly from under the screen.
A screen lock and ring silencer are integrated into the top edge, while down the right hand side there’s a 3.5mm headphone socket, a volume rocker and a shortcut button for the five megapixel camera.
