Not sure if serious....Blackberry posted almost $100 million in losses last quarter, if I'm not mistaken. And they're looking to sell.
I just googled that phone. It does look nice. This is from an article 2 days ago, I am intrigued. Of course the article is biased written by a Blackberry lover, but it's worth a look. I'm skeptical about the pic quality though. I'll add it to the list of phones I look at.
BlackBerry Z10: Could It Be The "Perfect 10" Of Smart Phones?
The BlackBerry Z10 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core 1.5GHz processor, making it super fast on the web. I am a YouTube addict and spend almost every night watching videos on there while I am trying to fall asleep. The picture quality is remarkable and even clearer than when I watch them on my desktop (which is an iMac)
After basic email function--and I am thrilled with fast I got use to the virtual keypad on the Z10--I care most about being able to function well on Facebook and Twitter. Facebook photos looked clearer on the Z10 than on my desktop and I could scroll up and down my friends' and my home pages like lightning. With Twitter, I was able to move equally fast and do searches very easily.
The camera on the Z10 is fabulous and photos seem as clear and precise as when I use my regular Panasonic Lumix 14 Megapixel DMC-FH6 camera. The Z10 features an eight-megapixel backside-illuminating sensor and an LED flash, and offers a 5X optical zoom.
I like how it looks, here's what CNET has to say.
The good: RIM dug deep to give the slick-looking BlackBerry Z10 enough features to satisfy both consumers and professionals -- like a good camera and a sharp user interface.
The bad: The Z10's unintuitive gesture paradigm creates a learning curve, and a long list of OS inefficiencies and omissions sour the experience. The bare-bones maps app and a deficit of camera features are two examples.
The bottom line: Though it's not quite enough to draw committed iPhone or Android owners, the BlackBerry Z10's modern design and features give BlackBerry fans what they've hungered for.
