When the Z10 launches in the US we should see a whole new round of reviews. By then we'll likely have seen updates to the OS and to Link, and multiple new app announcements. I still maintain that even if the Z10 launched today, it would do well in the US market.

I give credit the reviewer....that was the best simplified, yet thoughtful description/judgment of the UI I have seen yet. It expresses what many of us have been saying, and illustrates the pros and cons, as well as putting it in some overall perspective. The guy definitely "gets" that part at least.

Why are we discussing Gizmodo?!?...its a terrible site, and has ZERO journalistic integrity......They HATE Blackberry, pretty much hate anything that isnt apple. Of course their review was going to unfairly trash the Z10. It was pretty obvious what was coming after that hack article about the z10's camera. Take solace in the fact "regular" joes dont read these sites......Gizmodo is a joke of a site....i would reccomend everyone just boycott it, not because of this review, but rather just because its a terrible site. cheers.

Anyway, I think articles like this will continue to come out until Blackberry release some actual sales numbers.

The type of folks who read tech blogs are generally the type of folks who already have already developed strong opinions on technology. Take it for what it is... an opinion.
Giz wasn't too hot on the SG3, IIRC. Who cares?
If I were BBRY, I'd be printing off the so-called "negative" reviews with a fine tooth comb. Not to "wreck" the author or organize a boycott, to correct issues, no matter how extraneous.they are.

What about the argument about the eco system / cloud services that all three other players have that Blackberry doesn't. They are not the first technology pun-dents to make that argument. I hear their argument about it, I get it, but everyone I know that run either of the two top platforms, would be able to get along fine as long as the BB10 was able to utilize those other services. I just don't think that argument flies with regular people outside of technical people.

Lmfao! Lmfao times a million!!! Gizmodo doesn't deserve any respect as a tech blog. I mean why don't we ask them when we see them at CES? Oh wait we never will because they are banned. Well I'm sure some ome from imore can ask them at the apple launch event later this year, oh wait they won't be there. We'll what about at macworld? Damn I forgot they can go there either. Ya know for a tech blog they sure aren't at a lot of places to cover tech.

The only thing I can see with this article that is wrong, would be the fact that it seems the reviewer did not spend much time with the device. You cannot, and SHOULD not, judge a device without using it all day, every day, for at least a week, I would recommend two. Many of these "deficiencies" are completely overcome in that time, and it showed a lack of practice (or knowledge), rather than something wrong with the phone.

The review itself seems like a pretty fair assessment of the device, and was very positive on the device. However, the title clearly doesn't match the review or the conclusions that one would get from reading the review minus the conclusion paragraph. Jizmodo still has to make sure they don't pi$$ off Apple and lose their invite to the next iEvent

Re: Gizmodo - BlackBerry Z10 Review: Not Good Enough
The phone is very good. I care less what Gizmodo has to say. The truth is that if it was apple that came out with all new z10 features they would hail it as second coming of Jezus Christ.

Anyone who says the phone is not good enough has some very unrealistic expectations for a first generation phone from a new OS. The Z10 is a very good alternative and that's what it needs to be right now; it simply does not need to blow every existing platform out of the water to be seen as successful. They just don't get it and I'll leave it at that.

Wasn't a bad review overall, felt it was fair given the amount of time he used it. Something I didn't agree with: gestures aren't intuitive, I mean there is a tutorial that shows and explains everything before using the phone. Did you not go through that?
