The pre-production model of the BlackBerry 10 smartphones in terms of performance and handling can convince an Austrian blogs (video) test. The OS relies on gesture control.
On January 30, RIM will also present its new operating system BlackBerry 10 in six cities. There should be also the BlackBerry Z10 to see 10 next to the full keyboard device X, a pure touch Smartphone. The guys from Telekom-Our site could get a pre-production model of the Z10 in the hands which they affiliated same extensively tested.
First to the specs: the Smartphone comes with a – relatively small for these days – 4.2 inch display that sharp resolves with 1280 x 768 (355 ppi). Inside, 4470 processor supported by a large amounts of RAM 2 GB works a 1.5 GHz TI OMAP. The internal memory is 16 GB, of which 600 MB to be claimed just the OS. Also, you have the possibility to expand the memory via MicroSD. The battery capacity is 2,100 mAh, allowing in the Telecoms presstest for a term of “loose one day”. More specs are an 8-megapixel camera with LED Flash as well as a 1.9 MP camera, which each also cut a fine figure in the test, as well as including an HDMI output. On the scale, the Smartphone brings 125 grams, 8 mm deep, the Smartphone is pretty flat. The patterned and probably rubberized back which makes non-slip the Smartphone is worth mentioning.
Wipe is all
As already mentioned, the Smartphone has the new operating system BlackBerry 10 on board. This is according to Telekom-Our site “the most modern and most advanced” OS of all time, because it allows a “faster, more reliable and smoother” operation as for other Smartphone. And this, mind you, even though the software on the test device still in a beta version exists. The special feature of the OS is that it is completely without buttons to use virtual or physical nature leaves. Similar for the Nokia N9 MeeGo Smartphone runs the operation alone wiping movements. So get in the Task Manager if you stroking the bottom of. This is the screen after “uncovered”, whether it really makes sense, what is for me a nice graphic gimmick, not time. To close an application to move them above, and then on the left side of messages are displayed. It then wipe from left to right, which opens “BlackBerry hub” with all notifications. More controls are explained in this video to the test:
On me, the Smartphone, and the operating system makes a reasonable impression anyway, ever.Whether it really brings RIM out of the crisis, must be seen. So, for example, remains to be seen, as it is the subject of apps, and what rates RIM starts for his new BlackBerrys.
How do you like the Z10 and BlackBerry 10? Would you get even by your operating system on it?
