    I am wondering why Z10 USB port designed at the side. Anyone think this is really a stupid design? I am carrying an external USB charger when I am in outdoor. Actually the stock battery only can use 4 hours from full to empty. Yes, I am high usage with 4G connection. I don't mind bring another external USB charger since I know this is smartphone common fault. But every time I plug in the charger, I can't hold my Z10 comfort due to cable at the side. And it also cannot fit in my pants pocket. Why blackberry come up this design on Z10? If it designed at the bottom just like regular smartphone that will be perfect.

    What would be even better is if the battery lasted all day like a Blackberry should.

    BB should also have put external charging contacts on the bottom of the device so it could be charged in a cradle. Older BB units had this and I find there to be no excuse it is not on the Z10 or Q10. Sometimes I wonder what the hardware designers are thinking!

    Landscape device. Landscape ports. Bedside mode in portrait mode is lame. As is watching videos in portrait.

    I don't mind it as is. Albeit I do hate having to hold\use the device while it is charging...

    Yeah it's too bad that they didn't include those external contacts like the previous bb's. I also thought that was clever.

    Sorry. I don't believe you only get 4 hours use. If the usb port was on the bottom someone else would complain. Some people are never happy.

    when I need to charge my battery in the bus, puting it into my pocket is normal. I don't like to always holding this in my hand. That's why I put it with external charger into my pocket.
