Well, as the theater people say, the reiviews are in. BlackBerry seems to have hit a homer with the release of its new phone Z10…it’s pronounced Zed Ten, because that’s the way Canadians pronounce it. Ars Technica has a review, sort of, since handling time with the two products was limited. But the writer thinks the company has done it.http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2013/01/the-keyboard-weve-been-wishing-for-hands-on-with-the-blackberry-z10/
This morning also the Times’s tech writer David Pogue had an article on the new things and his tone was favorable.
Now all that needs to happen is for people to buy the thing. Maybe the wait was actually worth it. It’s nice to have another competitor in the ring. It was looking too much like a one horse race for a while there. Now Google and Samsung are in it, and BlackBerry makes a compatible fourth.
