The all touch BlackBerry Z10 is the first smartphone powered by BlackBerry® 10, the re-designed, re-
engineered, and re-invented BlackBerry platform that creates a new and unique mobile computing
experience. BlackBerry 10 offers a faster and smarter experience that continuously adapts to you and
your life on the go.
If you’re yet to discover just how unique BlackBerry 10 is, here is a list of ten cool things you can do with
your BlackBerry Z10, so you can keep moving and making the most out of every day.
1) Manage your conversations in one central hub
The BlackBerry Hub is designed for today’s hyper-connected multi-taskers, allowing them to
conveniently keep track of all their conversations, whether in their personal or work emails, BBM™,
Facebook or Twitter accounts. Easily “peek” into the BlackBerry Hub from anywhere in your phone, so
you’re just one swipe away from everything that matters to you. You have the choice to filter messages
as well, should you wish to focus and zero in on one task or one conversation at any given time.
2) Type fast and accurately
BlackBerry is known for making the best physical QWERTY keyboards, and with the BlackBerry Z10, it is
bringing this expertise into touch screen smartphones. The BlackBerry Z10 keyboard is not only elegant
and efficient; it is also intelligent and adaptive. As you spend time with it, it learns the words that you
often use and how you use them. It understands the way you think and type, even if you are someone
who switches back and forth between languages and dialects.
3) Take great barkada photos & create instant HD music videos
The BlackBerry Z10’s camera brings new features to help you take even greater photos. With Time
Shift, you can easily capture perfect group shots, where everyone looks their best. Even if some of your
friends blinked at some point, you can zero in on their faces and backtrack until you are able to compose
the exact perfect moment. After you save it, you can then use Picture Editor to add filters and effects,
to make it even more special. And if you have a series of photos you’d like to share, the Story Maker
feature lets you create an HD movie from them, complete with effects and the soundtrack of your
4) Bond with your loved ones overseas using BBM Video with Screenshare
BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) has been well-loved for connecting Filipino families and barkadas,
especially those who are separated by distance and timezones. BBM on the BlackBerry Z10 is brought to
a whole new level, as it allows two BlackBerry 10 users to video chat. A unique feature allows them to
share screens with each other during the video chat, allowing them to look at, comment on, and laugh
over photos of friends and loved ones together.
5) Do true multi-tasking
You know your phone is really multi-tasking when an app is able to continue running, even after you
shift to another task or app. Open up Youtube, let your selected video run while you peek into your
updated Twitter feed, proceed to the BlackBerry Browser to do a quick internet search, then go back
to Youtube to continue enjoying your video. Each of these tasks gets its own Active Frame that doesn’t
pause even after you send it to the background, unless you want it, thus making efficient use of your
6) Browse more websites on the go
The new BlackBerry 10 browser, which sets the industry benchmark for HTML5 support on
smartphones, is incredibly fast. Scrolling or zooming is fluid and responsive. The browser supports
multiple tabs if you like opening multiple web pages at the same time, and includes a reader mode,
which lets you do away with unnecessary images and ads and just focus on the text. Should you read
something you’d love to share, you can easily send the links to your BBM contacts and social networking
7) Be truly mobile
If you find yourself on a long trip with no time to sit down, you can worry less about your BlackBerry Z10
running out of memory or battery, as you can easily just carry an extra memory card or battery. Expand
your smartphone’s internal storage with a memory card, and store more photos, videos, files and music,
among others. The battery is replaceable as well, liberating you from having to constantly look for
charging stations, and you can focus on more important tasks – such as having fun!
8) Easily connect your BlackBerry Z10 to your TV
Back from your vacation and raring to impress your barkada with the photos and videos of your
adventures? Hook up your BlackBerry Z10 to your LCD TV with a micro HDMI cable. No need for extra
adapters or a complicated set-up.
9) Enjoy more apps coming into the BlackBerry platform
The BlackBerry World catalog just keeps growing, recently passing the 100,000 apps benchmark. Top
brands and application providers are joining BlackBerry every day. Developers who have jumped
onboard have found the BlackBerry 10 tools are easy to build with and that it provides opportunities for
app differentiation that they do not see on other platforms.
BlackBerry Remember is a dream app that lets keep on top of all your files, tasks and notes, whether
you’re planning a big work-related project or a barkada get-away. With BlackBerry Remember, you can
flag content as soon as inspiration hits. For instance, if you’re browsing through your photo album and
find a photo you’d like to flag, all you have to do is tap ‘Share,’ select ‘Remember’ and add a description.
You can also snap photos, take videos, record voice notes and attach documents directly within the
BlackBerry Remember application. Need to flag something but don’t have time to type notes? Add
a voice note instead! BlackBerry Remember is a nifty tool for keeping you organized while you keep
