Blackberry: Still not dead; Unbox the Z3

Share

Blackberry have lifted the the lid on a brand new phone – let’s party like it’s 2008!

Though Blackberry’s mobile business is widely regarded to be a dead man walking, rather than put it out of it’s misery with a revolver and a glass of whisky in a manner by which Richard Madeley would approve, the company are limping on – posting the “official unboxing video” for their latest handset, the Z3.

Don’t get too excited if you’re a power user though – the handset isn’t designed to set the world on fire, but is in fact a budget handset aimed at the Indonesian market, of all places.

According to Pocket Lint it has a 5″ screen with a 960×540 display, 8GB of storage and a 5 megapixel camera… and of course, you’d be saddled with the Blackberry 10 operating system and only a handful of apps to play with.

Still, it’s nice to see there’s some life left in the old dog – and even though they may be in decline, it can still raise the occasional pique of interest. Thinking about it, that would make Blackberry the perfect sponsor for The Simpsons.

  • Handful of apps? BlackBerry 10 phones run their 130000 own apps plus 98% of android ones so the BBs have the most apps of all smartphones. With them accepting a 128 GB microSD card, NFC for contactless payment, fastest browser in the industry etc, they are also the ultimate tech (although this economy model may not be). Ever try a 5″ Z30–awesome!
