As well as being a brilliant new smartphone, Blackberry’s new Z10 has some excellent features for business users.
Firstly, it potentially eliminates the need for two mobile phones (one personal and one for business).
The Z10’s BlackBerry® Balance™ feature separates your ‘personal’ from ‘business’ by allowing you to switch from one space to the other. You can set up an online store so users can access apps specifically chosen for them.
Plus, you can access company documents and internal web pages.
Second, its BBM™ Video with Screen Share Switch allows you to talk face-to-face and show photos, your browser, or use the inbuilt 8MP/1080p camera.
The Z10’s New BlackBerry® Flow interface allows you to move in and out of apps more easily and the new touchscreen learns your writing style to help you type faster and more accurately.
The BlackBerry Z10 is longer, wider and slightly thicker than the iPhone 5 and has a brilliant 4.2-inch 1280 x 768 display, which has a higher pixel density than the iPhone’s Retina display.
It has a dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor and its 1800mAH removable battery gives up to 10 hours of 3G talk time and up to 285 hours of standby time.
The BlackBerry Z10 has an 8-megapixel rear camera with 1080p HD video recording and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. Plus, there’s TimeShift which allows you to adjust individual faces within a group shot – you just scroll back and replace any individual’s face with a different shot, taken either seconds before or after the group shot was taken.
