    I swung by my local Telus store yesterday after work and got my paws on a Z30 just to... test the waters... so to speak.

    Well that sweet crack hit me good because now I can't stop thinking that I should be getting one. I kid you not, the craving is not unlike being addicted to cigarettes!!

    The good:
    -Gorgeous display. Loving the Super AMOLED these days.
    -Great weight and feel. Not too big and definitely NOT too heavy like some people have reported.
    -Seems damn fast. I tested loading some of the stock apps compared to my Z10 and it leads by a decent enough margin
    -Typing on the slightly larger display makes a marked improvement in typing accuracy in my limited test.

    The bad:
    -Volume keys seemed a little soft, but there was definitely no rattle like has been reported in the forums. Could be isolated to a few devices.
    -The browser icon seemed jaggy. With 295 PPI, it can't be display related. The PlayBook doesn't show this kind of jaggyness and it's, what, 187PPI? It might be a scaling issue with the icon that was used for the Z10. Every other curved surface in the UI was sharp, beautiful, and smooth.

    Overall, it is a great device. I compared it to a few other demo devices (iPhone 5c, GS4) and hardware/spec wise it seemed every bit as good. Display, speed, fluidity, launching apps - all excellent. Never mind the specs. But the Z30 comes out on top with its BB10 UI - and USB OTG is bonus (eat it iPhone).

    I give myself 2 weeks before I cave and order one off-contract from Telus.

    Yeah man! I'm also so tempted when I hold the z30 at the store
    Likely I want to sell my Q10 to get the z30 but I still love my keyboard

    I sold my q10 for the z30 honestly qwerty may be more accurate but z30 touch is much faster

    For me anyways.

    I've been fighting it too, but just. can. not. resist.

    Held a Z30 today, its a beauty. Not too heavy, and didn't seem as big as I thought it would be.

    Also, bigger screen, longer battery and dual speakers are the clincher for me and things I wish my Z10 had.

    Bye bye Z10, I'll be getting a Z30 this weekend.
