-Okay. It's been a long time since BlackBerry fans had anything to get excited about. -But there are some big buzz now. -There is. In fact, people were super interested in the recent BlackBerry 10 announcement and the introduction of two new phones. -This is really meant to resurrect the company and make them a player again. -Yeah and we'll see, inside this box, we have their first touchscreen phone running BlackBerry 10 OS. So, this is the Z10. Let's see how it is. -I'm excited to check it out. -I know. We have some other phones to compare it to. -All right. -The iPhone 5 and the Nexus 4. Oh. -There it is. -Oh. -This is [unk]. -That's a high-end style box. -Very attractive little box. -I'll take that. Oh, yeah, we got the white one. -Get then. -That's get some pop to it. -It does. -Not bad. Let's get this going here. -It's thicker than I would have thought. -Oh, okay. So, in the box we have an Apple charger and it has the little BlackBerry cell thing right there. Okay. -Yeah. -What else? Presumably the battery, yes. -Yeah. There's no way it could be that light. This thing is not weighs nothing. -I know. Here, pop them in there and see. -Yeah. -It has the Snapdragon chipset. So, we have a little add for that, with the cool dragon eye. We got our little BlackBerry talking headset 'cause everyone does that who has BlackBerry's, right? They all walk around with the headset and then they hold the mic up to their mouth. I don't know why that's such a pet fee for me but it kinda is. -It's like I've never done this before. -And then we have our little charging cable, mini USB which I do like to see. -Here we go. -Pretty big collection of manuals here. -I mean, now it feels like cellphone. -Like a normal phone. -Yeah. -Oh, yeah. Okay. That makes a lot more sense. Oh, it's coming on now. So, you can see it's a pretty similar size to something like the Nexus 4. -I guess the iPhone 5 is the comparison -iPhone 5 is looking so hilariously small, I think. -Yeah. -Every time I see a new phone I'm just like, "Why is that thing so dinky?" It's a good-looking phone. -Yeah. -Okay. While we wait for this guy to turn on, let's do some of the specs. The BlackBerry Z10 comes in two colors, black and white. It has a 1.5 GHz dual core Snapdragon processor. It's 4G LTE ready, depending on your career and of course it runs the new BlackBerry 10 operating system. The display is a 4.2-inch LCD display, so not the biggest we've seen but pretty good resolution, 1280 by 768. The camera on the back is 8 megapixels and the front-facing camera is 2 megapixels. The rear camera is capable of 1080p HD video recording. There are two gigs of RAM on board and 16 GB of storage but it does have expandable memory up to 64 GB. In terms of ports, you have micro HDMI and micro USB plus of course a headset jack. It has an 1800 milliamp batter. Now, that's not a huge battery, so I wouldn't expect great battery life. BlackBerry says you'll get up to 10 hours of talk time and 13 days on standby. This is a touchscreen phone with a virtual keyboard, somewhat of a departure for Blackberry. The cost is $199 on contract or $599 unlocked. I gotta say, coming out of the box, I mean, it's almost a let down that it looks so much like every other phone. -It really doesn't have that differentiator that you're accustomed to from BlackBerry anymore. -Yeah. -It just looks like every other in the market. -So, we'll just have to see kinda how that OS works out and how well they have managed to button it all up. -It seems a little sluggish, first impression, -Yeah. -but maybe, you know, more use would be different.
