    I had a chance to have the Z - 10 demo'd yesterday. The OS lived up to the hype and I am now certain I will be getting one, but two things really stood out to me.

    • The camera takes pretty good close-up photos of a document. As a 9900 owner, one of the shortcomings I have had to live with is that it is nearly impossible to get a non-blurry photo of a sales slip, business card or any document. In the store yesterday I got the phone to take some pictures of various parts of a newspaper. Fine print came through crystal clear.

    • The browser is rocket fast. I have a fairly high-end desktop on Shaw broadband 50 and I left that store thinking the phone loaded web pages faster than my desktop!


    I hope the stores have stock today.

    Yup thats thanks to the Z10 having the ability to focus where the 9900 was fixed focus, and SO annoying.
    Im the same, for ages i struggled with trying to get a shot of a document. Those days are over

    And yeah, the browser is silly fast compared to older BB browsers. To think that the 9900's webkit browser was meant to be a huge leap, and it was... Now imagine going from a non-webkit to the Z10, Its the difference between walking a mile and driving it lol
