The BlackBerry Z10 is a fast, robust, business-class smartphone. It enables multitaskers to accomplish tasks quickly and efficiently, thanks in part to streamlined features designed for getting things done, and in part to its powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ all-in-one mobile processor.
The Z10’s thin (9 mm) body has a sturdy, textured feel that makes it easy to hold, hard to drop, and resistant to damage. The 1280x768 resolution display packs in 356 pixels per inch, which means that text is crystal clear and images are crisp and vivid.
You’ll appreciate that vivid display when you use the Flow feature that’s built into the Z10’s BlackBerry 10 operating system. Flow enables you to seamlessly switch between apps, documents, screens, and accounts by using simple horizontal and vertical hand swipes. It allows you to multitask without really having to think about it. By swiping left, right, up, or down, you’re able to change what you’re doing or viewing with no noticeable lag. As fast as you can think it, the Z10 does it.
And don’t worry if you don’t remember what’s where. The BlackBerry Remember app helps you to easily organize related files – no matter what type – into groups. This makes it almost effortless to check out all information regarding a specific client, contact, or project. With Remember, your relevant messages, email, documents, voice notes, texts, attachments, and photos are just a swipe or two away.
Even when you can’t swipe, you can be productive – the Z10’s Voice Control app is a powerful alternative to swiping or typing. Its advanced voice processing capabilities accurately interpret your voice commands, allowing you to place and accept calls, dictate notes, send and receive texts, search the Web, make appointments, set reminders, tweet, and more.
The BlackBerry Z10 isn’t only about business and efficiency, though. You can also take terrific photos with its innovative TimeShift mode. This feature works by grabbing multiple images in the milliseconds before and after you tap to snap your shot. From that series of photos you can then choose the best – resulting in far fewer shots of blinking buddies or blurry action.
In short, the BlackBerry Z10 is like the personal assistant of your dreams - a smartphone that empowers you to plow through your responsibilities with unparalleled efficiency. Need to see to believe? Watch the video above to see how these features work in real time.
