A couple of pictures have been leaked showing off a blackberry Porsche Design Z10, could this be the next blackberry Porsche design edition for the Z10 !!!!
Personally I think the rumor/leaked photos are true since the Blackberry P9981 sold like crazy ( as a luxurious mobile) and specially in the GCC. On a personal level I can’t wait for the official announcement and an Q10 Porsche design edition also.
Great news for all Blackberry 10 users, just a few minutes ago whatsapp just got released on Blackberry World (app store) so start downloading it.
Last Wednesday we got invited to Blackberry 10 official launch in Kuwait. Since i mentioned Blackberry you probably would guess that its an awesome event & no matter how hard i could try to describe how great that event was words may fail me to truly describe it. The event was hosted in Sahara as i mentioned in an open Golf field, the weather was cold but perfect for this time of the year especially coz i enjoy cold the weather 🙂
Bloggers, celeberties, social media teams & the national Football team were all there, surrounded by Blackberrys Z10 device to get their hands on and get a feeling of this great new device and get to know the new software. Of course Mo6ref El-Mo6ref & Abdulsalam Mohammed performed some of their amazing songs live making all attendees wanna dance but actually no one did :p
The Z10 is a remarkable mobile computing device and Ive been using it since the day i attended the Dubai launch event, ive been really pushing it to the limits and it keeps amazing me but thats another post of course.
Finally we would like to Thank Blackberry & Bensirri for the invitation and the true amazing event & such great events are always expected from both.
Announced at BlackBerry10 Jam Europe exclusively for Blackberry developers the new Red Z10. Personally Im not a big fan of red mobiles and I like the Black Z10 but its really a great gesture from Blackberry to make developers feel special. Check the videos down below for the Limited Edition Z10.
Which color you prefer on the Z10 Black, White or Red ?
The giant has awaken, finally after the long long wait for the latest OS from blackberry have been revealed on Jan 30th. BB10 the new competitor in the smart mobile market will try to dominate the market as it predecessor did few years ago. I got an invitation from Blackberry ( formally known as RIM ) to attend the launch of Blackberry 10 in Dubai. The international launch of Blackberry 10 was in 6 different countries around the world through a video live feed all in the same time & Dubai was the middle east’s city of choice. The event started in Armani Hotel with Robert Bose the managing director for the middle east welcoming us and introducing Thorsten Heins Blackberry’s CEO to reveal Blackberry 10 to us.
Of course most of you have been following my live event update through twitter, Instagram & Tumblr and im gonna go through the most things and more details are coming up in another BB10 review post.
Now lets get back to the main attraction the Blackberry 10, Mr.Heins first announced that RIM have renamed themselves to become BLACKBERRY, then he revealed the new Re-designed, Re-engineered and Re-invented and i must add Revolutionary Blackberry Z10 ( An all touch screen handset ) & Blackberry Q10 ( The legendary keyboard form-factor handset Blackberry famous for).
First we got introduced to the main feature that all Blackberry 10 users gonna be using which is the Blackberry Hub, it gathers all the emails, BBM, SMS, Twitter, Facebook, Calendar events in one place to maximize the user productivity. Gathering all the notifications in one place and woking all the time in the background to keep the user updated and undistracted by having to check one place which is the Blackberry Hub rather than having to check multiple apps.
Now BBM users can contact each other using video calls & of course voice calls which got introduced in Blackberry OS7. Adding to the BBM video call a screen share option in my opinion is gonna be so useful for some of us and Im so positive that Ill end up using it especially when guiding someone to what they should do to achieve a certain task on their device.
Blackberry 10 is launching with over 70,000 application and its a huge number of apps for a new OS considering the fact that it just launched while in compare with Windows Mobile 8 that launched lat year with only 20,000 apps so 70,000 is a great number to start up with and keep you moving. Another important features that was announced is the Camera which is an 8 MP with a Time shift that enables you to catch that perfect moment before the person closes his eyes or the right moment when he/she is smiling. check the video below to get an idea about it.
The surprise of the event was that Blackberry made Alicia Keys Global Creative Director for Blackberry of course Alicia Keys were a blackberry user for many years.
Many new features have been announced but i wont go into the details of each of coz thats another post you would have to wait for 😉 but i cant end a post without mentioning the new Blackberry keyboard with an awesome prediction and the ability to learn your own words as you type. At the end of the video live feed we headed out to try Blackberry Z10 device that was available for us. I compared it with the Galaxy S3 & iPhone 5 sizes on the images down below (Of course special thanks for PinkGirlQ8 for the pics ) the Z10 feels really great in the hand not so big neither small with the perfect weight of 138 Grams which adds a premium feel to it.
Now for the main question most of our readers are asking is when its gonna be available and how much would it cost?
Its gonna be available in UAE starting Feb 10th and of course in kuwait by mid or end of Feb. The exact Z10 price for Kuwait was not revealed but its going to be between 180-200 KD Black or white.
As for the Q10 is gonna be available in the second quarter (No exact date was revealed also).
Special Thanks to Blackberry for the invitation & Bensirri for organising everything in Kuwait
Its been along time since RIM released any new updates on Blackberry 10 and my bbm list is almost empty, people are migrating to Android & iPhones and ditching their Blackberry. RIM have been working so hard on their newest software and most importantly trying to lure developers, im so optimistic about Blackberry 10 although loyal blackberry users are getting less and less but from a tech point of view RIM have nothing to loose right now and they have been learning from iOS & Android mistakes whether they can pull it off or not thats a different story but im sure that RIM is gonna be more successful than Windows 8.
Mobile market have reach a point prior to maturity and still there is alot of room for improvements. Ive been following Blackberry 10 news and updates for along time and i believe they are going the right way but they lack the support from developer, its not a secret that the success of any new operating system or mobile OS is the amount of apps developed from it. Check the video down below to feed your curiosity about Blackberry 10.
For those who remember webOS must notice the resemblance between Blackberry 10 and webOS which got killed thanks to hp. Its too early now to review or speculate on the future of RIM but needless to say that Blackberry 10 is something that will join the competition of Android, iOS & Windows. I’ll leave you with the latest leaked photo of Blackberry 10 device.
