BlackBerry's new flagship Z30 takes the stage

The new top-end BlackBerry is the company's biggest yet with the new BB 10.2 onboard

It certainly is BlackBerry's biggest, with a 5in Super AMOLED touchscreen, and running the latest version 10.2 of BlackBerry 10 OS.

You will be happy to know that the phone itself packs a lot of quality hardware - Snapdragon S4 Pro running at 1.7GHz, Adreno 320 quad-core graphics processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded with additional memory via the included microSD card.

Biggest BlackBerry yet

That new BB 10.2 adds the new Priority Hub which learns which are the most important messages to you from email, social networks and elsewhere, then presents only the best. BlackBerry Natural Sound is also onboard – it's a feature designed to improve the sound quality of video and voice calls over BBM.

Power users – or in fact anyone who actually spends time using their phone for anything more than the occasional call – will be pleased to hear it also has the largest battery the company has ever used. It's a high-capacity 2880mAh battery (the Samsung Galaxy S4's is 2600mAh) that BlackBerry claims is good for 25 hours of 'mixed use'. Also it supports most of the 4G LTE bands out there so you can tote this big Blackberry around the world if you wish.Come Oct 5th, the Z30 will be available from Celcom as Blackberry's exclusive partner here in Malaysia. Check out their site for more details. After two weeks, it will be available from over 2000 shops selling Blackberry devices all over Malaysia for a very attractive price of RM1998.
