BlackBerry Z10 Review

BlackBerry Z10 Review

The BlackBerry Z10 offers a slick, multitasking-friendly interface, killer keyboard and one-stop shop for messaging and social networking, but BlackBerry needs to work out some kinks.

(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.
