Blackberry Z30 Phablet Announced 112

iONiUM writes "Today the new Blackberry Z30 was announced today (release coming in the next 'few weeks'). It has a 4.97" 16:9 screen running at 720x1280. The CPU also got an upgrade, at 1.7Ghz. The news claims that the battery is a 2880maH with up to 25 hours of use. I'm not really convinced this is enough of a differentiation between the Z10 to save Blackberry, and as someone who owns a Z10 and Q10 (but uses an S3 instead), I don't see how this addresses any of the real issues Blackberry is facing, the biggest being a lack of apps."

    Have you actually used the OS for a while, or just sounding off?

    Half the new gestures in the new and "groundbreaking" iOS redesign are ripped straight from bb10. The OS is fast, smooth and its gestures are intuitive and useful. I switched from iOS 6.1 to use it as my daily driver, and whenever I switch between iOS, Android and BB10 i find myself instinctively trying the bb10 gestures.

    I've not found any apps I need that I don't have on the platform, and if i want, i can side-load Android apps as well (I don't bother though)

    Hardly a 'lame' OS.
