    Every year, the 01net magazine publishes a ranking of their best noted devices in the high tech area.
    To spot the audience of this, let's just say this publishing group (and their websites) it is the topmost read in this domain in France (add Switzerland and Belgium).

    In the High Range Smartphones section, the Z10 comes at the second place tie with LG G2 (with a score of 8.4/10), right after the Galaxy S4 with as little as 0.1 point less than the Samsung flagship (8.5/10).
    Z10 is before the iPhone 5s (8.1/10), mostly due to its crazy price (900€) and pointing out "brand addiction" as the main reason of 5S/5C undisputed succes. [Q10 is ranked #12 with a 7.9/10 score]

    Interestingly, the magazine raves the Z10 keyboard ("close to perfection") and screen ("extremely shiny"), while accurately still pointing the lack of apps in the ecosystem as a major handicap (thus lowers score).
    The paragraph title for Z10 is "A near to perfect keyboard for BlackBerry's hurray"

    For your information, this ranking is also permanent on their website (http://www.01net.com/tests-comparati...-euro-283.html) and the Z30 just outclassed the Z10 by 0.1 point currently in #4 slot.

    I will not dispute their ranking, based on very detailed technical processes: you can find them here Test des experts sur Blackberry Z10 sur 01net and Test des experts sur Blackberry Z30 sur 01net (sorry, in French).

    With two devices in the current ranking, BlackBerry seems to wait only for a better app ... oh ... wait ...

    Cool! That a 10 month old device is able to compete against some of these newer devices. Not familiar with 01net, is it a major tech site there?

    So how is the Z10 selling in France?

    To spot the audience of this, let's just say this publishing group (and their websites) it is the topmost read in this domain in France (add Switzerland and Belgium).
    And, on a qualitative side, they do have a high and respected reputation.
    Z10 is not selling much better in France than in Europe, and we (both) know lack of apps being - as stated - the most probable cause.

    This ranking is done by comparing scores of various characteristics of all the devices at the time they reviewed them in 2013 (until November, I guess). If you want to nitpick it, then follow the link I provided to see the whole table with full details.

    Then I'm sorry. I found sarcastic tone, where it shouldn't be.
    edit: Anyhow, in the doubt, post has been cleaned.
