Excerpt: Editor’s note: This review is based on an early seeding unit that was given to select media outlets. Subsequent to the device’s release in the Indian market, the phone has received an OS update that resolves some of the issues highlighted in this review. And by making available MapmyIndia’s map suite for free, Blackberry has addressed the lack of a native maps application with India maps, too.
Excerpt: The new Z10 could save BlackBerry. It won’t dethrone Android or put a major dent in Apple’s iPhone dominance. But it will make current BlackBerry users happy enough to lay down some cash. They’ve been waiting for a good shot in the arm for too long, and with its modern operating system and rich app platform, this is a very capable device that will exceed their expectations. It’s a phone that’s meant to do much more than just send secure e-mail.
Conclusion: Summing up, the Z10 is a good choice for businesses but not general consumers. The device builds on Blackberry's already strong business and security features, adding a new more friendly gesture-based user interface to the mix.
Pros: Slick new touch interface, Blackberry Hub is useful, robust security features.
Cons: Poor battery, buggy., Apple iPhone-like design isn't all that original.
is a decent phone for leisure and business with a smart operating system, great virtual keyboard and sharp display. The uninspiring design, limited choice of apps and lack of killer features let it down.
Pros: Sharp 4.2in display; 8MP snapper performs well in daylight; Hub offers lots of customisation; decent virtual keyboard
Cons: Design is uninspiring; limited choice of apps; No killer features; disappointing battery life
Summary: BlackBerry’s latest innovation, Z10 has carved a niche in the market by dint of its highly sophisticated features and eye-catching design. The latest from the company comes with excellent camera and BlackBerry’s latest OS. With social networking and little bit gaming too, the phone definitely provides some good experience to its users.
Pros: Impressive performance , Elegant display , Both 3G & 4G enabled , Excellent camera

For oss her i Norden har BlackBerry vært et merke som noen få har blitt prakket på av jobben.
Summary: Alt-i-alt er BlackBerry Z10 en blandet fornøjelse. Den virker lidt billig og plastic-agtig til prisen, batteritiden er helt i hegnet, og BlackBerrys helt eget operativsystem kræver tilvænning. Det er i og for sig både brugervenligt og intuitivt, men lider under en katastrofal mangel på gode apps.
