BlackBerry Z10: P29,990

Blackberry Z10 launch

Had my first glance of the new BlackBerry Z10 the other day which BB fans can now reserve at before its availability on March 19.Announced retail price is at a high-end P29,990 although this is expected to be bundled up with plans by Smart, Globe & Sun. What can I say … ’twas my first time to see a Blackberry without the physical QWERTY keyboard that the brand is known for. This one is all multi-touch!

Features to watch out for in this smartphone:

Lotsa power under the hood with Qualcomm S4 Plus dual core processor

2 GB of Random Access Memory (RAM) and 16GB of internal storage


8 MP rear camera with a TimeShift feature that lets you choose the best out of the many frames taken in a single shot

4.2 inches screen display with 355 pixels per inch for extra vivid colors

Celebrities and BlackBerry

Something to scratch off my to-do list: getting to know more about BlackBerry and attending a BB how-to workshop in the past week. The BB operating system is one thing I’ve never used but it was nice to be acquainted with it, no matter how short the session. It gave me an insight on why celebrities prefer to use the BB messaging system. Voice note rocks and so does bar code scanning. BB is also deemed to be a lot cheaper. Imagine having to send MMS and email for free because BB makes communication possible with cheap data plans provided by the leading networks.

Spotted were Laureen Uy and Isabelle Daza, two lovely personalities who are also avid BlackBerry users –

Says Isabelle, a BBM user for almost four years: “BB is all about contacting my family abroad with ease. While I was in Europe a few years back, my younger sister sent me a voice note of her singing. It made me feel better because I was missing her so much.”

Laureen says: “I’m in a BBM group with my best friends, who are bloggers, too. We would always talk and send photos to each other. I find it so amazing because it’s very useful for us when we can help each other out with blogging in such a fun and efficient way.”

BlackBerry Torch 9800 smartphone: when you want a BB upgrade for Christmas

Blackberry Torch

I use an Android phone, but I do know of some people (read: friends) who are loyal to their Blackberry. I’ve never used a BB in my life, so let me just share a few things they rave about it: the push email, unbridled surfing (you gotta be postpaid) plus the most amusing reason of all: ” a lot of celebrities are using BB!!!”

The BlackBerry Torch 9800 smartphone has just launched in time for the crazy holiday season when consumers are looking for new gadgets to replace their old ones. Having read the official fine print (errr, press release), I would consider getting this smartphone if I want an upgrade to not-so old BB models like the BlackBerry Bold 9700. In terms of the price point and features, the BlackBerry Torch is supposed to be BlackBerry’s answer to the Samsung Galaxy S and iPhone 4 of the competition.

Let’s take a look at the BB Torch specifications:
