    The bezels on the SG4 are so small that its closer to a Z10 in size than a Z30-even though both share a 5" screen. The SG4 is surprisingly small considering the size of the screen-its actually smaller than the SG3.
    Despite the screen being 5", the actual phone is only 4.6".

    You're thick. First, people get caught up in hype, that's what fads are all about. Second, I'm not defending BB's small screens they were too small. However for keyboard at least there is some excuse to have a smaller screen because the keyboard is there. Although I actually think there should be larger screen on the keyboard models too.

    Apple BTW is working on a Phablet, where is the mocking? They will bring it out at least two years after Samsung. Jesus all I'm saying is the Apple loving American media are fools. Apple has turned from a leader to a follower and that should be pointed out. The UX for their new phones was copied from BB. MSFT and Palm and the UI is hideous. And here you are complaining about my post....

    no it's not, the Z30 is only a couple cm taller and wider than the SG4! The Z10 is much smaller than the SG4 by several cm in both height and width.

    No company deserves this, especially not one that has started to produce the very products people said they didn't have, and wanted.

    If you had a **** **** of a kid that was heading no place, but one day turned their life around and started trying really hard....do you still punish them?
    No but when you talk about them you probably start off the conversation with "Remember that **** **** of a kid that was heading no place....."

    Yeah unfortunately that is happening with BlackBerry though. The old stuff was so far behind for so long that is how it is thought of how the conversation usually starts. They will have to execute at a high level for a long time for people to stop thinking that way. A re branding would have been better I think.

    The z10 is way smaller than the SG4...really?

    Heres the size specs between the Z10, SG4 and the Z30:
    Z10: Width: 2.58", Depth: 0.35", Height: 5.11" (4.2" screen)
    SG4: Width: 2.75", Depth: 0.31", Height: 5.38" (5" screen)
    Z30: Width: 2.83", Depth: 0.73", Height: 5.54" (5" screen)

    *you're right the SG4 is [slightly] closer to the Z30 in size, thanks for the clarification

    As I have stated a million times.... does anyone really care about the US market anymore ????? Was Samsungs Launch in the US first or Nokia ....Nope....

    What will change BBRY is when they find an activist investor or ball breaker like Carl Icahn.

    Ask the entire board and marketing team to resign and we will see the sun rise.

    Yeah, always real professional and unbiased when a newsreader (anchor-person?) chuckles while talking about how a company is struggeling. You don't have to be a genius to know which phone is in her pocket. Good thing it now has fingerprint recognition since she probably forgets her passcode every other day.
    True but this is the kind of news you get when they hire porn stars to do special news pieces. Really does she seem capable of even operating a RIM product?

    BB has repeatedly screwed the pooch every chance they've gotten over the last 4+ years. BB released the Storm and the Storm 2, and the 9850 and a tablet without email or BBM, and all the other crappy decisions. Not the media. Not a tech site blogger. Not a forum poster. I didn't kill BB. Obama did not kill blackberry. BGR did not kill Blackberry. Fox News and CNBC did not kill Blackberry. Blackberry ignored its core market. Lied to its most loyal user base. Disregarded its partners and developers and took advantage of the 'locked in' Enterprise Market until they were so frustrated they turned to Apple.

    I hate - (And I really mean this more than you can know) hate to say it, but nothing Fox News said about the Z30 is untrue. This device is unlikely to sell any better than the Z10 and likely worse, in that it is a essentially the Z10 plus, or the Z10-C, or the Z10 -S.. released 8 months after the Z and 6 months after the Z's US launch. What does the Z10 have in it's price point that no other device has? The Hub? Really? That's not going to do it.

    When in any store and a typical consumer asks the store clerk what's the difference between the Z and its competitors all they will hear is the other phone has more processing power so is probably faster, has a better screen, and more applications. The media did not force BB to put a 720P screen in instead of a 1080P. BGR did not hold a gun to Heinz's head and say if you put anything more than a dual core in there I will kill you. And I had nothing to do with the fact that the TAT team was not allowed to bring more elements into the OS.

    BB is where it is because of how it has acted and continues to act. BB is spoken about the way it is because of how they have acted and continue to act. End of story.

    Actually both Blackberry and some of its partners do have allot of unsold inventory. This is true. Some is held back for replacement and other purposes and much of it is being readied for liquidation, but it is there.BB's audited financials for the last few years are available for review.

    Well my uncle (super Android fan but former Blackberry user) sent me this review on CNET BlackBerry Z30 - Smartphones - CNET Reviews

    They talk very well of the phone and my uncle is thinking on going back, it seems that there may be a chance with the Z30, I hope so, and am waiting to find it on amazon
