    Rumours: BlackBerry Jakarta images leaked

    The BlackBerry Jakarta is rumoured to be the next touchscreen smartphone from BlackBerry after the BlackBerry Z30 and Z10. So far, the Jakarta is just the codename with it possibly being called the BlackBerry Z3 when it gets announced. So far, the design looks very similar to that of the LG Vu but tech specs include a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1.5GB RAM, 8GB of storage, a 5MP rear camer, 1.1MP front camera, 2650 mAh battery and a 5-inch display with 960 x 540 pixel resolution. As usual, the tech specs aren't very impressive, prompting many to consider that the Jakarta or Z3 could be an entry-level device around RM500. This seems unlikely though as BlackBerry devices have not dipped past RM1K even for the supposedly affordable BlackBerry Q5. The BlackBerry Z3 is expected to come with the BlackBerry 10.2.1 update which will allow users to install Android apps through APK files.

  • Rumours: No QWERTY keyboard for BlackBerry Jakarta?

    Rumours: No QWERTY keyboard for BlackBerry Jakarta?

    The BlackBerry Jakarta is a smartphone resulting from a collaboration between BlackBerry with Foxconn. It also looks to be following in the footsteps of the BlackBerry Z30 and Z10 touchscreen smartphones as it has been rumoured to have no physical QWERTY keyboard. Headed for Indonesia where BlackBerry has a very strong consumer base, the device will have 3G connectivity and should be available ther by April 2014, with no news yet on a possible Malaysia release date or pricing. As every tech user should know by now (and we sincerely hope BlackBerry decision makers are listening) coming out with yet antother touchscreen BlackBerry is like looking for trouble when you're already neck deep in crap. BlackBerry's other touchscreen devices have not been selling well, especially in the face of more powerful, more feature filled and more affordable smartphones. Hopefully we're wrong and the BlackBerry Jakarta suddenly has a slideout QWERTY keyboard at the very least.

  • BlackBerry Z30 officially announced in Malaysia for RM1998

    BlackBerry Z30 officially announced in Malaysia for RM1998

    BlackBerry Malaysia recently announced their newest flagship BlackBerry device with the BlackBerry Z30. Formerly known as both the A10 and the Aristo, this 5-inch display smartphone features the same touchscreen interface as the BlackBerry Z10 and gesture control scheme in the newest update to the BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10.2. While it doesn't really pack many tech spec surprises, the Z30 does do one thing that BlackBerry has never done before, which is to offer a flagship device like the BlackBerry Z30 at just RM1998. Other tech specs available on the BlackBerry Z30 include:

    • 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor 
    • Quad-core Adreno 320 GPU
    • 5-inch Super AMOLED (1280 x 720)
    • 2GB RAM
    • 16GB storage
    • 8MP rear camera (5x digital zoom, 1080 HD video recording) + 2MP front camera (720p HD recording)
    • 3x speakers
    • 2880 mAh 
  • BlackBerry Z30 appears on new video

    BlackBerry Z30 appears on new video

    The BlackBerry Z30 remains the company's last big device to appear and may or may not be the saviour that BlackBerry are hoping it will be. The BlackBerry Z30 or formerly known as the Aristo recently made an appearance in a video, showing it off complete with what appears to be a kevlar backside. The video indicates that we may soon see the BlackBerry Z30 being announced or launched soon. Other tech specs and features for the Z30 include:

    • 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor
    • 5-inch display (720 x 1280 pixels, 296ppi)
    • 2GB RAM
    • 16GB storage + up to 64GB microSD (hot swappable)
    • 8MP rear camera + 2MP front camera
    • 2800 mAh battery
    • BlackBerry 10.2
  • Rumours: Some more BlackBerry Z30 specs revealed?

    Rumours: Some more BlackBerry Z30 specs revealed?

    BlackBerry's upcoming 5-inch smartphone, the BlackBerry Z30 or Aristo as it is codenamed, may be the company's last gasp saviour as the most recent BlackBerry 9720 really didn't do as much as expected (we expected it entirely). On the other hand, we're expecting many good (and hopefully great) features from the Z30 smartphone which likely will include a 5-inch touchscreen and an overall design much like the BlackBerry Z10. Apparently the BlackBerry Z30 has leaked in a vs match with the Nokia Lumia 925 and this has seemingly confirmed a number of tech specs which include the aforementioned 5-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, a 2880 mAh battery, 16GB of Storage and 2GB of RAM along with the fact that it will likely be called the BlackBerry Z30 and not the A10 as was initially rumoured. These revelations come from details in the leaked pics which you can check out for yourself. Again, not much news on when the Malaysia release date would be or how much it would be priced but stay tuned and we'll keep you updated.

  • Rumours: leaked pics of BlackBerry Z30 with Z10 and Q5, plus unboxed video?

    Rumours: leaked pics of BlackBerry Z30 with Z10 and Q5, plus unboxed video?

    The BlackBerry Z30 or A10 as it is codenamed has made several appearances on its own already, and now we get to see it side by side with the BlackBerry Z10 and the BlackBerry Q5. From just it's appearance alone, it is quite obvious that the Z30 will have a much larger screen but retain nearly the same look and feel as the Z10. In terms of tech specs the only major upgrade for this supposedly "most powerful BlackBerry" is the slightly higher clocked processor and larger 5-inch 720p screen. Recently the Z30 has also appeared in a new video complete with boxing.

  • Rumours: BlackBerry Z15 and Z30 leaked images appear

    Rumours: BlackBerry Z15 and Z30 leaked images appear

    While we've been wondering about the BlackBerry Aristo's name, apparently some new renders of the upcoming A10 or Z30 have appeared, along with renders of what could be the device in between the BlackBerry Z10 and the BlackBerry Z30. Apparently this new device will be called the BlackBerry Z15 and go for a touchscreen + QWERTY keyboard slider form factor. While we're still wondering why it would be called the Z15 and not the Z20, the renders do appear to be pretty high quality, so it could be an actual device this time around. No other tech specs, pricing or release dates were available but with BlackBerry's decline weighing in the horizon the two devices should make an launch appearance soon, probably within 2013.

  • Rumours: BlackBerry A10 could actually be Z30?

    Rumours: BlackBerry A10 could actually be Z30?

    For quite some time now we've been watching renders of "the most powerful BlackBerry device ever" and seen the numerous spec leaks of what we've all come to know as the BlackBerry Aristo A10. However, new rumours are about that it may not actually be called that in the end as so far BlackBerry only have two product lines under the names of 'Q' for the devices with physical QWERTY keyboards and 'Z' for those with touch screens. Rather than be called the A10, which designates it as a completely different product some industry watchers are expecting it to be called the BlackBerry Z30. For some, this makes more sense as the Aristo is a larger touch screen device in the same line as theBlackBerry Z10. However, this still doesn't explain why it would be Z30 and not Z20 as there is still no Z20 device just yet.
