BlackBerry Tries A Touch ScreenThe Z10 design aims to impress consumers eyeing iPhones and Android devices. It's a touch-controlled smartphone with a 4.2-inch 1280 x 768 screen with 356 pixel-per-inch resolution. At 5.11 inches x 2.58 inches x 0.35 inches it's slightly larger than an iPhone 5. It's also slightly heavier than the iPhone, though with its rubberized plastic back the Z10 doesn't have quite the same solid feel as Apple's phone.
The Z10 is powered by a dual-core 1.5-Ghz processor and has 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of flash memory with a hot-swappable microSD slot. There's an 8-MP rear-facing camera with 5X digital zoom, LED flash and 1080p HD video recording. The 2-MP front-facing camera has 3X zoom, 720p video recording and supports a new BlackBerry Messenger Video Chat Feature. Network connectivity includes 4G LTE. The removable battery supports 10 hours of talk time on 3G and up to 305 hours of standby time. The Z10 will sell for $149 in Canada with a three-year contract; it is expected to be available in the U.S. in March for around $200 under a two-year contract.
