Watch Jane Unbox the BlackBerry Z10 Smartphone

Today was a big day for BlackBerry, the company formerly known as Research in Motion. It was the big reveal of BlackBerry 10 and the new-generation devices, the all-touch Z10 and the QWERTY-based Q10. All attendees got to take home a Z10 phone, and we couldn't wait to unbox it right at the event.

Check out the video below to see our very own Jane unbox the demo unit of the Z10. We're not sure if this is indicative of the final retail packaging, but it won't take long to find out with the Z10 hitting the UK tomorrow and Canada next week.

    i'm happy that blackberry is trying to make a come back. Android phones have a choppy slow to respond at times interface, Apple has a I-cant-customize-jack interface so i'm hoping Blackberry pulls out some nice moves to force the other companies to step it up. More competition means better products for us.

    None of the latest devices have choppiness, android 4.0 addressed many of the code efficiency problems.

    My LG optimus G has absolutely no choppiness, it's blazing fast and smooth of course it also has a quad core processor. My EVO 3D also isn't choppy or slow at all.

    Your problem might be that android can throttle down a processor when at idle, whoever designs the phone can set the frequency to conserve battery life, it may take a second or 2 to wake the device up and allow the processor to throttle to full speed. Your phone just sucks, get a better device or try a custom ROM.

    An excellent hands-on (initial hands-on) with the BB z10 on Android Central. Go look it up.
    Also excellent ref. to porting Android apps to BB, or even running them natively in the BB OS. THAT can make the difference for this phone.

    I'm sorry but this is not entirely true. I've been using a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for over a week with the latest "project butter" update and it still gets the occasional choppiness, though much improved from before.

    3 minutes of my life I'll never get back.

    Who cares what's in the box? Was it going to be a surprise that there's a manual? (OMG FRENCH AND ENGLISH; I had no idea Canada had not one! But two! Official languages) and a charger?

    Post a video with the phone running and you putting it through it's paces.

    I unboxed my new Razr Maxx HD today... the box was about an inch bigger than the phone and was very well designed. The Apple products I've bought in the past (iPhones) also came in slick compact packaging that is well designed to give the 'minimalist' impression. This... is not.

    Here's a very poorly worded headline about the Blackberry Z10: "6,000 RIM jobs at stake". :lol:
