Blackberry targets serious users with new Z3 touch-screen handset

 

Expected to cost under $200, the BlackBerry Z3 packs a large touch screen but no physical keyboard.

BlackBerry Z3

 

The first smartphone to debut in 2014 from BlackBerry locally is not a new expensive flagship, but rather the entry-level Z3. Favouring function over form, the Z3 offers a utilitarian BlackBerry experience at an attractive price point. But is that enough?

Large 5

Back cover slightly hot under heavy use; BB10 OS feels dated

All things considered, the BlackBerry Z3 certainly feels deserving of a place among the top entry level smartphones around, with its solid combination of processing capability, utilitarian design and an enticing price point adding up to an well thought...

BlackBerry Z3 review: Good build and battery life, but a little too expensive

 

The BlackBerry Z3 is the company's first budget smartphone running on the BB 10 OS. Can it pack enough punch to be relevant against the current crop of budget phones?

At a price tag of Rs 15,990 the price of the Z3 has far exceeded price expectations. Granted, most media brands didn’t exactly do in-depth research by simply converting the price in Indonesia into Indian rupees, without accounting for duties and taxes,...

BlackBerry Z3 Review : The average newcomer

 

BlackBerry Z3, the new smartphone from the Canadian giant is a nice decent buy if you are looking to try the BlackBerry ecosystem.

Sturdy built and body ; Nice display and touch ; Good battery life

A bit over priced ; Okayish camera ; Laggy performance ; Limited apps

The BlackBerry Z3 has been priced at Rs.15,990, which is indeed a bit overpriced going by the overall specifications and everything that the phone offers. And we wish BlackBerry had placed in at least in the sub-12000 category. But then the BlackBerry...
