    When I'm wrong I'm the first one to admit it. Maybe I was a little too quick to pass judgement on the Q10. One of my objections was an assumption that a smaller phone would have a smaller battery. The official specs of the Q10 list a 2100mAh battery as opposed to the 1850mAh battery in the Z10. With a smaller screen and larger battery, this bad boy is starting to look much better. Now, I'm just hoping that apps don't have to be rewritten for the 1:1 aspect ratio. Assuming that this will be replacing my 9650 and that I'll still have my Playbook, I'm getting to like the idea of a keyboarded phone to bridge to my Playbook. It's been a great combination so far and will only get better. But I think I'll stick with the black instead of the white.

    I know that this isn't necessarily the place for phone talk, but it's been a real long time since we've been able to be excited about new phones!

    Given what a nice job it appears to me that they've done, I have even less patience for the haters. The device is finally real, so the discussion should be real too!
    Not good enough. It has to do everything that every other device does plus everything that everyone else wants and it has to do it now goddammit or the whole friggin thing is going right down the p00per.



    Ya know, I keep thinking that I can't type on a touch screen. I'm slowly finding that I can't type on a QWERTY either. I must be huntandpeckedly challenged.

    I'm still back and forth. I'm thinking since the OS is geared to touch that the Z would be better and then again I do miss a PKB. What to do..........

    I would think the app thing wouldn't be an issue, they certainly would have thought about that a long time ago?

    This is an encouraging comment from the thread of people that got one already. Although it's all personal preference.


    Got mine from Carphone Warehouse in central Bristol today. Inserted my EE 4G chip and was set up in no time. Within an hour of using it the decision was made to sell my Galaxy S3. It's like a kid's toy compared with the Z10. Outstanding.

    Yikes :S. There was a 3-car pileup earlier in the week on I-35 just a couple miles north of where I was. Scary stuff.

    Did you know that only 40% of blonde secretaries can type by touch? They built their skills for a career. The rest are just hunt'n peckers...

    Yeah, they told me the used to carry the colored ones but just stopped ordering them and only ordered the black. Who know with these Gigantico mobile companies.

    Okay, wait, let me rephrase that. It's a nice slim phone and doesn't need a case, and it's just as nice in black.

    Congrats to SixStrinMadness for making the 58,000th post in the CrackBerry 50K Challenge! I kinda had my sights set on this one since it's of special significance to me, but I unfortunately had to be out when this one went. But, it's only fitting that this one goes to SixStrinMadness since he seems to snag all of the music-related ones!

    With the 58,000th post occurring on the same day that RIM... I mean BlackBerry launches BB10 along with the Zed-10, this particular milestone is marked by none other than the Pantless Zead!

    A Master Pantless Piece! Nice work. One of the best Louzatars yet. Love it.
