Also berries and apples are close enough in the plant kingdom that there may be an infringment or at least some inadvertent cross pollinization going on.

And a lose for non-LTE countries.. the Qualcomm chip is a better SOC... faster cores. Yeah, a good win for TI, but they don't seem all that interested in smartphone and tablet anymore. It's curious that this shares so much with the Galaxy SIII. For anyone else, that would be a step back, debuting your flagship based on a near clone of a platform about to be replaced. But on the other hand, this is the first time a Blackberry phone has been even close to current in ages, so Blackberry fans have reason to cheer. And it's also sharing that core with the Windows Phone flagship, the Nokia Lumia 920. The real contest this year will be between Microsoft and Blackberry for third place.

Yet, many bought the phone. Disintegrating/Disecting the phone would be another nightmare, wouldn't it? Blackberry, before even Apple had a chance to get into the market, you were there. Good going!

Not sure what you do with wow these days. There is something to be said for the wow of balance if you work in the corp world, and the feature set as a whole is pretty good. 3D camera with measurement? ...that would be fun. I really just want a smartphone that works... easy, intuitive, etc. Crazy techy with a BB and an Android and a couple iPhones in the family too. Love the apps/screen on the Android and iPhone, but some things about the BB are just way better ... like proper unified message box and push email on several accounts, a light I can program to match contacts, flexible notification profiles (and I do use them) ... including a mode that turns off all but super urgent messages when on the charger between 1 and 7 am, etc. You get the impression it is designed by people who use it for business/personal in real life ... but unfortunately completely missed the portable computing aspect.

You really need to spread this article over 14(!) pages?

While RIM (Blackberry) has been sued by the usual groups of patent trolls, I have to imagine that someone like Apple would be careful going after RIM. In the specific smartphone space, RIM likely has as large a patent portfolio as anyone even likely bigger than Samsung. I am sure a lot of countersuits could result.

"the BlackBerry Z10 is powered by the MSM8960 baseband/applications processor." Only in the US/LTE markets. The rest of the world gets Z10s powered by TIs Omap4470, making it a big win for TIs app pro.

As with the windows phone, the delay in introduction resulted in many loyal users "flying the coupe." This phone would have been very nice 1 year ago.. But better late than never. It'll be interesting to see if they can land some serious government contracts to help keep them alive.

How do you get a wow factor when each smart phone has already 99% of what is needed for vast majority of people??? Revolution happens only once in a while, evolution happens all the time

I smell a lawsuit from Apple because the Z10 has a rectangular shape with rounded corners, a black box, and an icon with a telephone, three of the design patents infringed in the Apple v. Samsung lawsuit.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
