    Exclamation Different types of Z10??! Look at mine, and the ones shown on the web

    Ok,

    I purchased my Z10 5 days ago from Dubai, through the official agent.

    When opening the back cover, look closely at where the memory card and sim card locations are.

    Here is a picture of my Z10

    Different types of Z10??! Look at mine, and the ones shown on the web-photo.jpg

    and now, look at this video on youtube that I found



    Also this picture that I found from an article I was reading

    Teardown: Inside the Blackberry Z10

    So the bottom line is, my phone is different model than those?? or what?

    Thought of sharing this.....

    Yes. There are a few different z10s. I want to say only 2. The North American+UK version and then the rest of the world. Other than what you have described, the second difference is the processor. Those things are the only 2 differences. Please inform me if I have helped you with your question

    Who did you purchase it from? Do you know if it supports LTE?

    I don't think LTE is even available in middle east or asia so i assume they will have bit different handsets than ours.
    Nokia 3310> Nokia 8210> Nokia 1110> Nokia 7610> Nokia N95> iPhone 3G> Nokia N900> Blackberry 9700> Blackberry 9900 White> Blackberry Z10

    I believed in Blackberry Z10 and now a proud owner of it

    For all those people who try to talk about how good their phone or OS is, listen, if they were so 'amazing' then I would have left BB long ago and CB would be dead by now. Point is not that I believe I made the best choice among all available phones but I made a choice which serves me best!!!

    UAE, where this person bought their Z10, has had 4G for almost 2 years. Etisalat and at least 1 other offer it.

    That does look kind of weird to be honest.

    My Z10 looks like the second video and your picture is the first time I see the back like that.Like others have mentioned it could just be a different version, but I personally have not heard anything in regards to that.

    If it works fine though and you are not having any problems then it shouldn't really matter where the Sim and Memory card go imo.

    sorry I couldn't be much help.

    As hamza stated, we have LTE for a while, and I use it with my iPhone. I don't know why people think we don't have things....believe me, we have things that you might not have yet

    Z10 for example, we have it lol jk

    Back to the topic, the Z10 is not advertised here as an LTE device, so I think ours don't have the LTE and the one people will get in the US will have it. Not a major backdraw for me honestly.

    Just a note of something I noticed, it seems BBM doesn't require a BIS data plan anymore, is this correct? I started using my phone without a SIM, and connected to WIFI, and the BBM worked once I logged in with my blackberry ID.

    Thanks guys.

    London, laguna and some other one (I think lisbon). There's a few worldwide versions. This is not some kind of exotic variety or error. This is just what they are selling in your market.
    Phones: Nokia 5110>Nokia 3360>Siemens C56>Moto RAZR>LG Chocolate>Pearl 8100>Bold 9000 >Pearl 9100 + Bold 9900 > iPhone 4S + Z10 + Bold 9000
    Tablets: 16GB Playbook > Playbook 32GB

    LTE is widely available now on most of the networks in the Middle East such as Saudi Arabia and the UAE, which happen to make up a combined BlackBerry user base of around 11% globally.

    I find it ridiculous that we cannot get one concrete answer as to what hardware the devices are running in which regions. We only know that the Canadian (and possibly UK) versions are running the Snapdragon which support LTE. All we heard was rumors prior to launch about the processors with them being the Snapdragon OR the TI OMAP 4470. Even after the launch this is still a rumor and it should not be that way. Can someone from the CrackBerry please put an end to this confusion?

    Sorry guys just for the record I belong to UAE Didn't mean to disrespect but it's been 5 years I haven't returned to UAE so not updated with networks. All I remember is there was this ridiculous Etisalat which was giving best service ever but was charging crazy money in those days. Again no disrespect but just memories from my college days

    Hi Dani, no worries, I didn't mean you disrespected...not at all...but thanks I agree, Etisalat is charging a lot, for half the quality or quantity other ISPs in the US is charging..but nothing we can do...at least like you said, good quality is provided

    Cheers mate

    From BlackberryOS.com

    The London (Z10STL100-1) - The London is the Z10 that was made exclusively for networks that don't have LTE (think smaller markets and developing nations that are just getting 3G or HSPA+). If you're in the U.S. or Canada, odds are you will never see a London.

    21Mbps HSPA+
    Quad-band HSPA+ 1,2,5/6,8 (850/900/1900/2100 MHz)
    Quad band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)

    The Liverpool (Z10STL100-2) - The Liverpool is the Z10 for GSM carriers in Europe and the rest of the world that have LTE. This device can be used

    Quad band LTE 3, 7, 8, 20 (1800/2600/900/700 MHz)
    Tri band HSPA+ 1, 5/6, 8 (2100/850/900 MHz)
    Quad band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)

    The Lisbon (Z10STL100-3) - The Lisbon is the Z10 for GSM North American carriers that have LTE. This is one that pretty much every carrier in Canada has, and the one that AT&T and T-Mobile will end having as well.

    Quad band LTE 2, 5, 4, 17 (700/850/1700/1900 MHz)
    Tri band HSPA+ 1, 2, 5/6 (850/1900/2100 MHz)
    Quad band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)

    The Laguna (Z10STL100-4) - The Z10 for CDMA carriers that have LTE (aka the Verizon Z10).

    LTE Band-13 (700MHz)
    CDMA Cell-band and PCS-band (850/1900 MHz)
    WCDMA Band-1 and Band-8 (2100/900 MHz)

    There you have it. If you're picking up a Z10 over the next few days, or just got one this past week, try it out and see which model Z10 you have right now. For those wondering, the Dev Alphas, or at least the B that I have, is a London.
