    WARNING : so far I've been unable to unlock my Orange Z10 and it seems general, as BB has not yet released the "unlock keys/procedure/whatever".
    Be very careful when you choose your seller, you might be sticked as I am right now.


    That's it !
    €129 with subscription is a pretty good price tough

    Edit : Notice also (and on the phone house site too), there is an incentive of €50 (probably sponsored by BlackBerry ?)

    This article says in France Z10 has a Snapdragon S4 Pro because it's modem has all required frequencies? Did they mean to say S4 Plus? No TI OMAP4470?

    You are here: Home / IT Equipment / BlackBerry Z10: Qualcomm wand
    BlackBerry Z10 : Qualcomm la baguette BlackBerry Z10: Qualcomm wand Le 14 fvrier 2013 par Clment Bohic 0 Commentaire Donnez votre avis The February 14, 2013 by Clment Bohic 0 Comment Comment Rest trs discret quant au hardware de ses nouveaux smartphones, BlackBerry a retenu un processeur Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro qui supporte la 4G LTE en France. Remained very discreet about the hardware of its new smartphones, the BlackBerry has retained a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro that supports 4G LTE in France.
    Envoyer un ami Send to a friend .
    Axant sa communication sur son nouveau systme d'exploitation, BlackBerry est rest trs discret sur le hardware de ses tlphones mobiles. Focusing its communication on its new operating system, BlackBerry has remained very quiet on the hardware of its mobile phones.

    Un dsossage en rgle du modle Z10 (100% tactile) laisse entrevoir un certain conservatisme de la part du fabricant tlcoms canadien, qui capitalise sur des valeurs sres de l'anne 2012. Boning a rule model Z10 (100% touch) suggests a certain conservatism from the Canadian telecoms manufacturer, which capitalizes on solid values ​​of the year 2012.

    En tte de liste, un processeur Snapdragon S4 Pro (SoC MSM8960) dj implment dans la premire version LTE du Samsung Galaxy S3 et dans le Windows Phone 8X de HTC. Top of the list, a processor Snapdragon S4 Pro (MSM8960 SoC) already implemented in the first version of LTE Samsung Galaxy S3 and Windows Phone HTC 8X.

    Comme le souligne Silicon .fr, il n'est pas exclu que certains marchs aient droit un OMAP 4470 de Texas Instruments, loin des tout derniers SoC ARM que Samsung, Nvidia, ST-Ericsson, Qualcomm et Renesas ont prsents lors du dernier CES. As emphasized Silicon . fr, it is not excluded that some markets have a right OMAP 4470 from Texas Instruments, away from the latest ARM SoC that Samsung, NVIDIA, ST-Ericsson, Qualcomm and Renesas have presented at the last CES .

    Premier bnfice du S4 Pro, il prend en charge la LTE grce l'intgration du baseband multi-mode. First benefit of S4 Pro, it supports LTE through the integration of multi-mode baseband.

    Ainsi, ct connectivit mobile, le Z10 est compatible avec les rseaux HSPA+ (2100, 850 et 900 MHz), mais aussi les bandes 3 (1800 MHz), 7 (2600 MHz), 8 (900 MHz) et 20 (700/800 MHz) de la 4G. So next mobile connectivity, the Z10 is compatible with HSPA + (2100, 850 and 900 MHz), but also bands 3 (1800 MHz), 7 (2600 MHz), 8 (900 MHz) and 20 (700/800 MHz) 4G.

    Il s'accommodera donc des frquences franaises, en l'occurrence 800 MHz et 2,6 GHz… et ventuellement, terme, le spectre 1800 MHz, actuellement utilis pour le GSM, mais qui pourrait faire l'objet d'un reversement ( refarming ) pour l'utilisation de la LTE. So it will accommodate frequencies French, in this case 800 MHz and 2.6 GHz ... and possibly, eventually, the 1800 MHz spectrum currently used for GSM, but that could be a reversal ("refarming") when using the LTE.

    Qualcomm s'est galement impliqu dans la gestion de la puissance, avec la puce PM8921, galement embarque dans le Samsung Galaxy S3. Qualcomm is also involved in the management of power, with the PM8921 chip, also embedded in the Samsung Galaxy S3.

    Samsung que l'on retrouve en tant que fournisseur, pour les 2 Go de DRAM LPDDR2 et les 16 Go de mmoire flash MLC portes NAND. Samsung found as a supplier for the 2 GB LPDDR2 DRAM and 16 GB of flash memory MLC NAND gates.

    A 1280 x 768 points sur l'cran de 4,2 pouces, la rsolution d'affichage atteint les 356 ppp. A 1280 x 768 dots on the screen of 4.2 inches, the display resolution of 356 dpi reached. C'est suprieur l'iPhone 5 (326 ppp), mais loin des tlphones 1080p (1920 x 1080) qui ont fleuri lors du CES 2013, au-del des 400 ppp. It is superior to the iPhone 5 (326 dpi), but away from phones 1080p (1920 x 1080) that flourished at CES 2013, beyond 400 dpi.

    Orange has it available for order online (just ordered mine). In stores they have posters up and were supposed to have the actual devices starting today but I've gone into multiple stores and got answers ranging from "by end of week" to "end of month". If you order online it's 3 days delivery and they're in stock now, but you have to mail back the signed contract so activating the line may take a bit longer.

    Orange only has the black Z10.

    Buoygues (Bouygues Telecom : tlphones et smartphones, forfaits mobiles et offres internet) has the Z10 showing up online as "Available soon", but the stores said "by end of month". The black is available to everyone and will be in stores, the white is "web only".

    I got the phone for 199€ + 50€ mail-in rebate I'll redeem now on just a 1-year contract. 5Gb/month bandwidth, unlimited calling for 75€/month.

    I got mine for 540€ with 50€ mail-in rebate with a low-cost contract (Sosh by Orange). Ordered last Thursday and delivered this morning. It's time to play now!
    And I'm also trying to attest than the review by Les Numriques - S'informer pour mieux acheter is totally not objective. It's a shame.

    I'm living near the French border in Germany. It seems we have to wait another four weeks. Could I just walk into a Sosh or Orange shop and buy the Z10 without contract?

    Is the phone locked to the Orange network or can I insert any SIM?

    Does mail-in rebate mean the price is actually 589 and I get 50 back when I mail in some coupon? Can I mail from a address in Germany?

    Thanks

    Hi Tw,

    No, it will be network locked and to be reimbursed of 50€, you need to be a sosh (There's no shop, it a web only low cost mobile operator from Orange) for two months.
    And to be sosh subscriber, you need to reside in France.

    Sorry.

    @tw_ I guess you have your answer. The only option should be to find the Z10 in Phone House shop when it will be available for 589€.

    The price would be ok. But if I understand correctly they will not have it before March ("DISPONIBLE DEBUT MARS"). Right?

    Merci
