_DSC0570

The BlackBerry Z10 is the first all-touch smartphone powered by BlackBerry 10. It’s the re-designed, re-engineered, and re-invented BlackBerry platform that creates a new and unique mobile computing experience. BlackBerry 10 offers a faster and smarter experience that continuously adapts to you and your life on the go.

If you haven’t yet taken the dive to experience how unique BlackBerry 10 is, here is a list of ten reasons you should buy the BlackBerry Z10, so you can keep moving and making the most out of every day.

1.) Manage your conversations in one central hub

The BlackBerry Hub is designed for today’s hyper-connected multi-taskers, allowing them to conveniently keep track of all their conversations, whether in their personal or work emails, BBM, Facebook or Twitter accounts. Easily “peek” into the BlackBerry Hub from anywhere in your phone, so you’re just one swipe away from everything that matters to you. You have the choice to filter messages as well, should you wish to focus and zero in on one task or one conversation at any given time.

2.)  Type fast and accurately

BlackBerry is known for making the best physical QWERTY keyboards, and with the BlackBerry Z10, it is bringing this expertise into touch screen smartphones. The BlackBerry Z10 keyboard is not only elegant and efficient; it is also intelligent and adaptive. As you spend time with it, it learns the words that you often use and how you use them. It understands the way you think and type, even if you are someone who switches back and forth between languages and dialects.

3.) Take great photos & create instant HD music videos

The BlackBerry Z10’s camera brings new features to help you take even greater photos. With Time Shift, you can easily capture perfect group shots, where everyone looks their best. Even if some of your friends blinked at some point, you can zero in on their faces and backtrack until you are able to compose the exact perfect moment. After you save it, you can then use Picture Editor to add filters and effects, to make it even more special. And if you have a series of photos you’d like to share, the Story Maker feature lets you create an HD movie from them, complete with effects and the soundtrack of your choice.

4.) Bond with your loved ones overseas using BBM Video with Screenshare

BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) has been well-loved for connecting families, especially those who are separated by distance and timezones. BBM on the BlackBerry Z10 is brought to a whole new level, as it allows two BlackBerry 10 users to video chat. A unique feature allows them to share screens with each other during the video chat, allowing them to look at, comment on, and laugh over photos of friends and loved ones together.

5.) Do true multi-tasking

You know your phone is really multi-tasking when an app is able to continue running, even after you shift to another task or app. Open up Youtube, let your selected video run while you peek into your updated Twitter feed, proceed to the BlackBerry Browser to do a quick internet search, then go back to Youtube to continue enjoying your video. Each of these tasks gets its own Active Frame that doesn’t pause even after you send it to the background, unless you want it, thus making efficient use of your time.

6.)  Browse more websites on the go

The new BlackBerry 10 browser, which sets the industry benchmark for HTML5 support on smartphones, is incredibly fast. Scrolling or zooming is fluid and responsive. The browser supports multiple tabs if you like opening multiple web pages at the same time, and includes a reader mode, which lets you do away with unnecessary images and ads and just focus on the text. Should you read something you’d love to share, you can easily send the links to your BBM contacts and social networking accounts.


7.)  Be truly mobile

If you find yourself on a long trip with no time to sit down, you can worry less about your BlackBerry Z10 running out of memory or battery, as you can easily just carry an extra memory card or battery. Expand your smartphone’s internal storage with a memory card, and store more photos, videos, files and music, among others. The battery is replaceable as well, liberating you from having to constantly look for charging stations, and you can focus on more important tasks – such as having fun!

8.)  Easily connect your BlackBerry Z10 to your TV

Back from your vacation and raring to impress your family with the photos and videos of your adventures? Hook up your BlackBerry Z10 to your LCD TV with a micro HDMI cable. No need for extra adapters or a complicated set-up.

9.)  Enjoy more apps coming into the BlackBerry platform

The BlackBerry World catalog just keeps growing, recently passing the 100,000 apps benchmark. Top brands and application providers are joining BlackBerry every day. Developers who have jumped onboard have found the BlackBerry 10 tools are easy to build with and that it provides opportunities for app differentiation that they do not see on other platforms.

10.) Hold on to inspiration

BlackBerry Remember is a dream app that lets keep on top of all your files, tasks and notes, whether you’re planning a big work-related project or a family get-away. With BlackBerry Remember, you can flag content as soon as inspiration hits. For instance, if you’re browsing through your photo album and find a photo you’d like to flag, all you have to do is tap ‘Share,’ select ‘Remember’ and add a description. You can also snap photos, take videos, record voice notes and attach documents directly within the BlackBerry Remember application. Need to flag something but don’t have time to type notes? Add a voice note instead! BlackBerry Remember is a nifty tool for keeping you organized while you keep moving.
