    I have been searching for photo comparison of the upcoming BB Z10 & the iPhone 5 & i found nothing. Does anyone knows if BB Z10 is thinner than the iPhone 5? Thanks.

    No official dimensions are out yet, but I highly doubt it'll be thinner than the iPhone 5.

    Honestly, I hope it's not so thin that it's a problem. Weight is a far more significant thing than thickness, and I find the really thin devices awkward to hold sometimes. When they're too thin, my fingers will slip on the edges and it pops out of my hands. Maybe it's my sweaty fingers...

    It's thicker. Almost exact same thickness as the iPhone 4.

    It doesn't really matter. it's not like we have to slice bread with it or anything! The feel in the hand is much more important. a good example would be the Curve 9360, which is 11mm thick, but feels thinner in the hand

    All the leaked dimensions I've seen show that same thing.

    Iphone 4/4s 115.2 x 58.6 x 9.3 MM
    Iphone 5 - 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 MM
    Z10 - 130 x 65.6 x 9 mm

    Not sure how accurate that is but I've seen those same dimensions in a few places.

    There's something funny looking about the bottom of that iphone. First the bottom of that iphone looks all chewed up. Second the bottom of my iphone 5 isn't that thick...on mine the glass above and below the metal band is the same thickness - the one in the image is very thick under the metal band. Something funny going on there.

    Does it even matter? 1 mm of thickness isnt even noticeable

    Visually, it doesn't. But you will feel the difference especially as the dimensions are bigger in all aspects.

    Hopefully it won't feel too bulky. I held an S3 once and could never get used to something that size.

    Keep in mind the Z10 has a removable battery door, which adds a bit of overall bulk, so any device without a removable battery will have an advantage.

    It's a piece of sponge. It looks like the owner didn't want the two phones touching each other for some reason.

    But in all seriousness, no the thickness as compared to _blank_ device does not matter, but it is important that it's relatively thin (which it appears it will be) I loved my torch's form factor the most of any of the dozen blackberry's I've owned, but I had to dtich it for the 9900 because it was too thick, bulky and heavy when in my pocket.

    Can't they just put them side-by-side, laying flat on the same surface, and take a picture that way? Putting them on top of each other really doesn't tell us anything. Anyways, January 30th.

    No, it does have the removable battery, and NFC, which iphone does not have, and which is why its thinner..
