BlackBerry Introduces the New BlackBerry Z30 Smartphone

Any smartphone users here? I bet there are plenty. I’m a smartphone user myself. I’m using a smartphone running on android OS, and it has served me very well for the past few years. I’m a big Android fan as it gives me the freedom to customize and tweak the phone according to my usage, but I’m not averse to trying out smartphones with other operating system. And speaking of other phones with other operating system it reminds me that BlackBerry® recently introduced the new BlackBerry® Z30 smartphone.

It’s BlackBerry’s biggest, fastest and most advanced smartphone yet. Featuring BlackBerry® 10 OS version 10.2, the new all-touch BlackBerry Z30 smartphone comes with a beautiful 5” display and the largest battery yet on a BlackBerry smartphone.
