As mentioned in an earlier report, the BlackBerry Z30 has been officially announced here in Malaysia. While it will be available from 5 October 2013, Celcom has exclusive rights over the smartphone for the next 14 days starting from that date. As such Celcom are teasing a number of fairly interesting freebies for those who sign up for a BlackBerry Z30 under a Celcom plan during this 14 day period. This includes a FREE BlackBerry Z10, 2 Alicia Keys concert tickets for KL, free download of Alicia Keys "Girl on Fire" album and an UrbanGears headset for the first 200 subscribers. After the first 200, the next 800 will also get freebies, but what exactly these freebies are still hasn't been announced just yet. So if you're gunning for a BlackBerry Z30, save 5 October 2013 as the day to do so, preferably at a nearby Celcom Bluecube store. Stay tuned and we'll keep you posted.

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)

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

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.

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.
