  • TechnetGLOBE » BlackBerry Z3 ‘Jakarta’ coming to Indonesia in April for under $200

    […] BlackBerry CEO John Chen is here at MWC and has some device news. The executive announced progress on the Z3, the phone codenamed Jakarta (shown off above), which will be coming out to Indonesia in April. The company plans to sell the 5-inch device, which is a collaboration between BlackBerry and Foxconn, for under $200. The initial model will be 3G-only, but Chen also tells us that there will be an LTE version coming out to other parts of the world at some time in the future; joking, Chen mentioned that it would come out “sometime before I die.” We’re also told that BlackBerry plans to do some interesting new stuff with BBM. Update: we got a few up-close photos of the Z3, which you’ll find below. The Z3, which runs BB 10.2.1, definitely has the trademark look and feel of a BlackBerry. It’s a sleek all-touch device with a ridged soft-touch back cover. Unfortunately we weren’t able to hold the device, so we can’t speak to how comfortable it is. We’re also told that we’ll be quite happy with long battery life, but no further specs were given. BlackBerry has put up more info about the Z3 on its blog. […]
