BlackBerry Z10 Review

(3.5 out of 5)

Do you smell that? It’s the scent of fresh BlackBerry. After more than a year of waiting…and waiting…the first BlackBerry 10 phone is finally here. The Z10 is certainly a welcome departure from the clunky, touch-unfriendly handsets that caused BlackBerry–the company formerly known as RIM–to become the tech world’s punchline. A slick Flow interface makes multitasking a breeze, and there’s a killer touch keyboard that learns as you type. BBM gets an upgrade, too, with the ability to video chat and even share your screen mid-call.
