Sorry Apple, the BlackBerry Z10 Is Hotter Than the iPhone
I've always hated BlackBerry phones. Disgracefully ugly bricks they were—until BlackBerry 10. If the RIM's new flagship Z10 device really looks like this—and apparently it does—and if the OS is as nice as it seemed at CES, I will totally snatch one up.
These BlackBerry Z10 vs iPhone 5 comparative renders by our friend Martin Hajek are amazing. Not only because they show off just how beautiful a phone RIM has built, but because they demonstrate why we should still care about BlackBerry. With hardware as lovely as this, it may still have a chance at coming back with a vengeance.
The comparative images were made by Martin using leaked physical data and pictures which are believed to be the real thing. I love that is has zero buttons. It does it all through the screen's touch abilities, and that's all you need.
Also, check out the renders for the N10—RIM's new model for the keyboard diehards—at the end. You can download Martin's amazing 3D models here.

It is refreshing seeing that this is coming from Gizmodo, and the renders are absolutely to die for !"Your Punishment Must Be More Severe"

Great to see the change of heart from the writers at Gizmodo, but a quick scroll through the comments shows that a lot of their readers are still pretty ignorant about BlackBerry 10.Z30 (10.2.0.1809) | LE Z10 (10.2.1.1055) | Q5 (10.2.1.1055) | PlayBook 32GB (22.214.171.1243) | Nexus 4 (Android 4.4.1)

Nice find. I really like these two beauties! I dislike choosing between two thing I like so I hope to win a contest so I can get both.
Just a note to the author, it has buttons, you just don't have to use them.Nothing is so common as is the goal to be remarkable

I have always had black BlackBerry. But white X10 looks good too. I am wondering if it'd look girly though?
What I really want though is a Crimson or Blood or Scarlet Red X10!*******
UPGRADE existing users to BB 10. Don't want to price devices too low? Start a 'trade-up' program. Let existing BB users exchange their old (even non-working) devices for new BB10. Eg: Old BlackBerry + $250 = Z10 This way, you won't have to officially lower your MSRP.

hahaha Im reading the comments, and the iSheep just can't stop talking trash. I'm so amused with how ignorant their comments are.
"But the most important question still is: Does it play Angry Birds?"
"Well, RIM has finally arrived in 2008. Good work, guys.
Too bad they're still releasing button/screen faced phones for all 4 people that still use them.
I thought most of us were using touchscreen or touchscreens with full qwerty slider phones. Both are better than the half/half mess of the Blackberry's old design."
"Wow. You are so wrong its disturbing. I cant even go into the most simple reasons why this phone falls short of the iPhone 5 and how your obviously pathetic opinions are starting to wear on the rest of us. Do all of us a favor and stop it."
"Yeah, sorry, no. The last time I bought a slick would-be iPhone competitor from an on-the-ropes company was the Pre. I loved that little pebble, but nothing ever really came of it. Things are going to be even worse now. Good luck getting even half the functionality (apps) as other platforms."
"Looks like Gizmodo got a nice big advertising check from RIM.I smell bull crap.This is like the Lumia BS all over again.The truth is RIM doesn't have a good track record with hardware and most likely this thing is going to have the blackberry playbook internals or something cheaper.."
"Let's agree to disagree. The hardware looks nice but the interface already looks like it's going to be sh!t... But it's a RIM product so that was already to be expected."
Wow January 30th is going to be an amazing day for us BB fans but just a dark day for the Apple Fans. 1 more day and X hours!

For the best typing experience only one brand does it the best. That brand is BlackBerry.
BlackBerry. Why settle for a wannabe?
