BlackBerry Z10

The BlackBerry Z10 is the latest phone from BlackBerry and at the time of writing (March 2013) it had just been released. It's the latest flagship phone from BlackBerry and the first phone to use the new version of BlackBerry's operating system, OS10, which is designed to be a competitor to Android Jelly Bean, iOS6 and Windows Phone 8.

BlackBerry OS10

This operating system is different to previous versions of the BlackBerry operating system - there is no longer a physical keyboard on the phone and it is controlled by a touch screen, similar to its competitors.

The Processor

Equipped with a 1.5GHz processor and 2GB of ram, using the phone is fast and smooth. The touchscreen is responsive and makes for great web browsing.

Syncing your contacts

When you set the phone up, you can sign easily sign into Google and Twitter accounts to import your contacts.

BBM

The BBM app allows you to have unlimited free messages with other BlackBerry users ( although the contract detailed below provides for unlimited texts to everybody).

The Apps

Apps can be downloaded from BlackBerry App World, where there is a huge range of apps, games, themes, music and video to download. Some of the apps are free.

Time ShiftCamera

The BlackBerry Z10 has a 8 megapixel camera which can also record HD video. It has a capable camera, with built in LED flash and autofocus. One rather useful special feature is the camera's Time Shift mode, which captures images milliseconds before and after your photo, so can get the perfect moment - exactly!
