I’m pleased to introduce you to the new BlackBerry Z30 smartphone. It is our biggest, fastest and most advanced smartphone, and easily my favorite BlackBerry smartphone to date.

In addition to its stunning 5” touchscreen, the biggest ever on a BlackBerry smartphone, it features BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.2.1 and is packed with new features designed to enhance the BlackBerry 10 experience. I use the BlackBerry Z30 to keep me connected and in control while on the go. As you know, I’m always sharing and collaborating on social media and I find that the BlackBerry Z30 is ideal for this. And it has the largest battery yet on a BlackBerry smartphone, so I’ve got power to get me through. With the large screen and intuitive features, I’m able to be more productive and better in-touch with those I care about.

Below you’ll find a promo video showing off the device and a rundown of the best new features in the BlackBerry Z30.

The new BlackBerry Z30 smartphone comes with BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.2.1, which includes hundreds of refinements plus many new features that help you be more productive. Among key features are:

  • BlackBerry Priority Hub – BlackBerry Hub is the one place to manage all your conversations and notifications. The new BlackBerry Priority Hub can now learn what conversations and what people are important to you making it fast and easy to find the messages and information you need.

  • BBM Now in Any App and Message Previews Everywhere – BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.2 continues to refine the unique communications experience of the platform. You can now get a preview of any message as it arrives in whatever app you’re in, and immediately dismiss it or tap it to read the full content and respond. If a BBM message arrives, you can instantly reply to the message without even leaving the app you’re in. In addition, if your phone is locked, you can tap the various icons on the Lock Screen to see an instant preview of your most recent messages and notifications.
  • 5” Super AMOLED Display – The BlackBerry Z30 smartphone features the latest in display technology with a 5” Super AMOLED display that makes whatever you’re running larger, clearer and more vivid.

  • Stereo Audio and BlackBerry Natural Sound – The BlackBerry Z30 smartphone comes with stereo speakers that immerse you in your music, videos, apps and games, and makes conversations sound like you’re face-to-face. BlackBerry Natural Sound is new technology exclusive to BlackBerry and part of BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.2 that makes BBM Voice and BBM Video chats sound more natural and realistic. BlackBerry Natural Sound lets you hear nuances and variations in tone, making conversations sound like you’re in the same room.
  • New Antenna Technology – The BlackBerry Z30 smartphone features BlackBerry’s new generation antenna technology that dynamically tunes reception to give you better connectivity in low signal areas. BlackBerry Paratek Antenna is designed to give you faster data transfers and fewer dropped calls in low signal areas, keeping you connected in more places.

    I have had a blakberry for 6 years now, and I have loved it. My contract is up in the next couple months and I’m sad to say I am switching to a samsung galaxy 4. Blackberry really needs to do something with there apps, the choices are limited, it sucks for games. I can’t really play games on mine, and I refuse to buy the games. On google play with the galaxy I get all the games free! For that reason I am switching. Also I am sick of my BB freezing up all the time, my bbm takes forever to go thru, sometimes it takes hours before a message goes thru. Loved BB for years, now just sick of it not advancing with the times.

    When the Z10 was finally released as the “flagship phone ” of BlackBerry, a many year wait was over and we were thrilled. But then came the word of the Z30 being the ” new flagship device ” and many, many of your loyal customers ( I for one since 2007) were left with a very expensive phone that we were told would soon be outdone by another BlackBerry which made us feel kind of cheated and hoodwinked. It was like BlackBerry was saying ” buy the greatest new phone that you have all been waiting for ” and then (with the release of the Z10 only a blink of an eye over) you announce the Z30 and make us feel like we spent many, many hundreds of dollars for nothing. The Z10 will be my last BlackBerry phone because of its shortcomings as far as normal business apps that are lacking as well as the Z30 ” new flagship replacement rip off “. Sincerely, Donald Guntner BlackBerry owner since 2007

    In as much as RIM is raising the bar in super powerful smartphones with and unmatched security, I have come to the conclusion that RIM is my heart-pick in making choices in the telecommunications market. Although, it would take a long time for the Z30 to arrive Africa I’d still stick to my Bold 9700 for some financial reasons. #Team RIM!
