Blackberry Announces the 5 Inch Z30


The Blackberry keeps it moving with the introduction of the Z30! It has been a few months since the last time the world was introduced to a new Blackberry device and today, that timer is reset as the Z30 becomes official. A larger, more robust Blackberry was rumored to be in the works and went by the name of the A10 every time it reared its oversized head out for a leak. The A10 or as it is now known, Z30 was poised to offer up a slightly larger Z series handset when compared to the Z10 device Blackberry used as their flagship to re-launch their brand recently.

Since the launch of the Blackberry Z10 the company has gone on to launch the Q10, the Blackberry Q5 and even a new Curve with the 9720 into emerging markets. What Blackberry hasn’t launched and has never offered is a phablet, also known as an oversized smart phone for the masses. Today that missing piece has become a reality, and it is known as the Z30. The new Z30 starts with a familiar design and uses an all touch screen panel to provide its end users with access to the Blackberry 10.2 operating system. The touch screen measures in at 5 inches and users a Super AMOLED HD panel that offers up a 720p pixel resolution. Internally the Z30 comes packing a more than capable 1.7 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 16 GB of built in storage and expandable micro SD memory. It also packs in an 8 mega pixel rear facing camera that can record video in 1080p as well as a 2 mega pixel sensor up front for all of your, self portraits.  Additionally the Z30 is expected to come running with 4G LTE connectivity as well as Wi-fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC and a high capacity 2880 mAh battery. The Z30 will begin hitting store shelves next week in the UK and the Middle East while other areas of the world are expected to see the device before the start of the holiday season. Pricing is unknown but will be announced per carrier soon.
