    I don't know about you guys, but looking at the spec sheet and price point, I feel like the Z3 will be a hit in the market segment. I know that being a developing market device will do little to help things in terms of North American uptake, but it should create some positive buzz if nothing else - and positive buzz is what BBRY needs.

    5" screen, bonkers battery life, BlackBerry 10.2.1 OS, $150 - $200. I think it's a great way to get a pile of users on board

    I was impressed by the battery for sure. Hopefully the BB10 UX doesn't suffer with lower processor and RAM, but really it shouldn't. Still respectable stats. This isn't a flagship.

    I think they should have made it a bit smaller. 5" with that screen res is a little low pixel density.

    Yea that resolution on that gage screen would greatly reduce the ppi number. Then again, I'd just have to sir this out and get a unit on hand to see how washed out/sharp it really looks

    Some good news today after a visit to my local Costco and finding out that they no longer carry BlackBerry.

    I would name it the Z3 Jakarta for the Indonesia market.

    The thing that surprised me is the screen resolution.

    I don't know how it'll work because BB10 only supports 720 by 720, 1280 by 768 and 720p? Nothing under it.

    It's hard to ignore the PPI issue of a less than stellar resolution on a big display. It's an area where costs must be cut in order to deliver a budget price. Competitors put sub-"Retina" PPI devices out at bottom of the barrel prices all the time, though rarely at 5".

    Yes from what I have seen so far 5inch screen with such specs especially the battery... CLEAR WINNER. I hope the design would be a little different than the leak though.

    Indonesian will love these battery & screen size. They don't really care about the screen resolution, as long as the price stay cheap and reasonable, they will be pleased with this device

    Only concern is probably the 8GB harddisk size, unless if future OS can make us store apps in SD card. And maybe the 1.5GB memory too.

    That processor and GPU should perform as well as the Z10 does. Newer Gen Dual core Krait and I think a better GPU than the Z10 too. I don't see my Z10 jump over about 1.1 GB of RAM so it should be OK there too, may just not be able to run as many active frames.

    Now what they should do IMO for developed markets budget phone is to make an updated Z10 with new Gen processor, AMOLED screen, better battery, maybe bump the screen size to 4.5, but the current size would be acceptable, and sell it for $299 unlocked.

    Instead of a Z3, wouldn't you just buy a Z10? Same price range, better specs.

    Stay with the same device for over a year and keep on working on it... why blackberry fans don't realise that the Z10 was a flop! yes it was a nice phone with nice specs, and yes it was unfair that it sold that bad. But we cannot stay mentioning it even after a year of its release. The new Z3 as seen so far might be a real nice way to do a come back or stop the shrinking sales for abit.

    So please tell me again why one would pay the same money for a Z3 even though the specs are below a Z10?

    Likely it has a newer build that does.
