From all indications, Blackberry seems to be making moves to regain its position in the smartphone market, after making it possible to run Android Apks on BB10 devices via a recent update, Blackberry is set to release one of its low cost BB10 smartphones; if an alleged rumour of a BB10 device ” Blackberry Z3 ” code named “Jakarta” is actually true.
According to a post on N4BB, Blackberry Z3 is due for launch at the MWC 2014 event next week, Blackberry Z3 is speculated to cost $150 (around #24,000) which I think is a cheap price for a BB10 device. This is actually a cool move to capture the low-income earners by a “tested” and probably “trusted” brand :P.
According to the specifications available, Blackberry Z3 will come with a 5″ 24-bit colour LCD display having a 540 x 960 pixels resolution. It will be driven by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Adreno 305 GPU coupled with 1.5GB RAM and 8GB of inbuilt storage, no details on the expandable storage. It’ll be bundled with a 5-megapixel auto-focus rear camera with flash technology, a front facing 1.1-megapixel. It is also rumored to be powered by a 2650mAh battery. The charging port is said to be fitted on the bottom of the device and the power on-off button on the left side of the device
This is said to be one of the first low-end phones to be released from the stable of Blackberry Ltd. We hope to see more of this device in coming weeks and its gonna be awesome.
#myOpinion Personally am expecting this device to be a game changer, shake off a lot of competing devices with similar or even lower specifications considering the price. Do not forget that courtesy the latest BB10 update, Blackberry 10 powered devices can now run Android Apps/games efficiently.
Whats your opinion on this?
