BlackBerry Z10: First Impressions


BlackBerrys first BlackBerry 10 device the Z10 came in yesterday. I didnt get to use it until today though. So here are a few thoughts from the couple of hours Ive used it.


I love the new interface of BBM. It retains all the features of the old BBM but its now so much more elegant. I also love how all my BBM contacts from my old phone were automatically added. Theres also a suggested friends feature it searches for contacts in my email address book and checks them with their BlackBerry ID and PIN. Thats pretty awesome.


I use SwiftKey Flow for Android so itll take a while to get used to the next word prediction on the Z10. The screen is just large enough. Ive also noticed some words I type on SwiftKey are showing up as predictions here. I dont know how they did that.


The camera seems great for 8 megapixels. Therell be more details on that in the full review.

BlackBerry Hub and Peek

Having all your messages in one place is always a great idea. I also like that Peek makes notifications show on the side instead of a section in the top bar.


Foursquare, Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook all come pre-installed. For Facebook and Twitter, Ive noticed they look just like their Android and iPhone counterparts. Someone just told me WhatsApp isnt available in App World. Im hoping to download some games.

Thats all for now. Ill lay down all my thoughts in the full review next week.
