People seem to be taking this very lightly and letting Blackberry off the hook too easily. I for one was really looking forward to doing some music production on-the-go using Caustic 2 with my Z10 when 10.2 came out. I thought this whole BB10 thing was supposed to be about ushering in the era of "Mobile Computing". I mean look at how "old" the S3 is and that came out almost a whole year before the Z10 and that supports USB OTG! There are powered USB OTG cables which provide the necessary power to the attached USB device so the excuse about the Z30 powering the USB port while implying that the Z10 cannot doesn't seem to be the real technical reason why USB OTG couldn't be made available to the Z10. Come on Backberry get with the times. Those large bezels are wasted space they don't need to be so large to support "off screen" gestures. They just make the devices seem outdated and inefficiently designed compared to the competition who "magically fit 4.7" ( LG Optimus 4X HD P880) screens in the same space as the Z10's 4.2" and the same goes for the Z30 vs the S4.

Tell me Blackberry, what do you suggest a customer in my position and with my interests, intent and requirements do?
