Early today we got a press release concerning BlackBerry's latest device named Z30, this model ofcourse is a sister to BlackBerry Z10 but the obvious difference is that the BlackBerry Z30 comes as a Big sis to the aforementioned smartphone.

In Summary before you head to the press release, here are some basic and important features that comes with this device some say its like an S4, others say its bigger than Galaxy Note, whichever way when it arrives fiscally we'll fill the gaps....

The BlackBerry Z30 is comes with the new OS 10.2 build Sporting a 5" Super AMOLED display, 1.7 GHz processor with quadcore graphics, the Z30 will be the second latest all-touch smartphone in the BB 10 family from BlackBerry.

The most important part is the battery and Blackberry didn't disappoint, the Z30 features a 2880mAh battery making it the biggest battery ever made on a BlackBerry till date.

Also a rear feature among other smartphones comes into play as the new Z30 smartphone comes with a New Generation Antenna Technology from BlackBerry which dynamically tunes reception to give you better connectivity in low signal areas. BlackBerry® Paratek Antenna can give you faster data transfers and fewer dropped calls in low signal areas, keeping you connected in more places.


Most of us were probably expecting the Z10/Q10/Q5 to utilize the Paratek technology that RIM acquired a while back, but it looks like they finally implemented it in the Z30. Or, it's already in the previous BB10 devices and BlackBerry is just highlighting it again.

As for getting your hands on one, the Z30 will be available from select retailers in the UK and Middle East beginning next week, and all other regions going into the holiday season.

In other News BBM(Blackberry Messenger) release date will now be available to Android and IPhones  Sept 21 and Sept 22 respectively...

BBM for iOS and Android to Launch This Summer

Apple and Android™ users this summer, with support planned for iOS7, and Android 4.2 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or higher, all subject to approval by the Apple App Store and Google Play. 

BBM sets the standard for mobile instant messaging with a fast, reliable, engaging experience that includes delivered and read statuses, and personalized profiles and avatars. Upon release, BBM customers would be able to broaden their connections to include friends, family and colleagues on other mobile platforms.
In the planned initial release, iOS and Android users would be able to experience the immediacy of BBM chats, including multi-person chats, as well as the ability to share photos and voice notes, and engage in BBM Groups, which allows BBM customers to create groups of up to 30 people.

“For BlackBerry, messaging and collaboration are inseparable from the mobile experience, and the time is definitely right for BBM to become a multi-platform mobile service. BBM has always been one of the most engaging services for BlackBerry customers, enabling them to easily connect while maintaining a valued level of personal privacy. We’re excited to offer iOS and Android users the possibility to join the BBM community,” said Andrew Bocking, Executive Vice President, Software Product Management and Ecosystem, at BlackBerry.
BBM is loved by customers for its “D” and “R” statuses, which show up in chats to let people know with certainty that their message has been delivered and read. It provides customers with a high level of control and privacy over who they add to their contact list and how they engage with them, as invites are two-way opt-in. iOS and Android users would be able to add their contacts through PIN, email, SMS or QR code scan, regardless of platform. Android users would also be able to connect using a compatible NFC-capable device.

BBM has more than 60 million monthly active customers, with more than 51 million people using BBM an average of 90 minutes per day. BBM customers collectively send and receive more than 10 billion messages each day, nearly twice as many messages per user per day as compared to other mobile messaging apps. Almost half of BBM messages are read within 20 seconds of being received; indicating how truly engaged BBM customers are.

Today, BlackBerry also announced BBM Channels, a new social engagement platform within BBM that will allow customers to connect with the businesses, brands, celebrities and groups they are passionate about. BlackBerry plans to add support for BBM Channels as well as voice and video chatting for iOS and Android later this year, subject to approval by the Apple App Store and Google Play.

If approved by Apple and Google, the BBM app will be available as a free download in the Apple® App Store(SM) and Google Play store. Additional details about system requirements and availability will be announced closer to the launch.
