BlackBerry Z10 is finally here in the Indian market. The most anticipated handset is more of an experiment to lure iPhone customers. BlackBerry has the largest number of corporate clients in the world. To make sure the company maintains its lead in India not surprisingly leading carrier support is pouring in. At least, it’s a good sign for the struggling smartphone maker. Telecom biggies including Aircel, Tata Docomo and Idea are immersed in the so-called BlackBerry 10 phobia.
Tata Docomo, for instance, has come up with Rs.899 offer for BB Z10 customers. If you are ready to pay Rs.899 on a monthly basis then you will get free unlimited local calls and mobile internet at no added cost. Aircel is also not far behind; the telecom giant has introduced several plans across prepaid and post paid mode. Idea, another player is said to offer some 3G plans. Details are pretty sketchy at this hour.
India’s leading telecom service provider Airtel hasn’t come out with any specific plans for BB Z10 customers. Reason could be its close relationship with iPhone. Last year, during the launch of iPhone 5 in India, Sunil Mittal promoted Airtel was one among the leading players who actually supported Apple iPhone 5 immensely.
Coming back to BlackBerry – the smartphone maker urgently needs to repair its tarnished image. A lot depends upon the success of BlackBerry Z10. Like every smartphone, the device from the Canadian manufacturer, is not complete. It has some negatives and well as some positive aspects attached to it. GizBot has come up with five reasons to buy BlackBerry 10 powered - BB Z10. Let’s get into the mood.
BlackBerry 10 OS
All right, you may like your Android or iOS device, but there is a reason to look beyond a fixed connotation. The BB 10 is a fresh approach and crafted from scratch. It is not a new version of current BB 7, to be precise. And you can’t simply ignore much improved BBM. There is a fluidity built around the OS that certainly missing from iOS. Are you one among them who all time glued to internet? Then listen, BB Z10 has better browser embedded in the device that is miles away than so –called Safari browser.

Removable user battery
Sorry to listen ….your iPhone does not support removable battery. After spending thousands of rupees on your treasured device, one can’t even change the damn battery. Well, the BB Z10 comes with a user replaceable battery. It would great for those consumers, whose job requires them to be on constant move.
Can you compromise with your security? No, you can’t. Did you know that Android mobile OS is the most affected from virus? There is no security built around the OS. Even if you get a high –end Android device, still you are standing in a wrong direction. If the BlackBerry won’t be termed as a secure OS then it was hard to see why American army rely so much on the service offered by the company.
BlackBerry offers better keyboard functionality than its arch rivals. The virtual keyboard has well spaced keys that are so awesome to type on. There is quickness in the keyboard that no one likes to forger it easily.
Every few business centric handset comes with the freedom to expand in-built memory. Android offers – no doubt about it. But the same cannot be said for the iPhone. Every executive is aware about long list of contact numbers and it matters a lot to store more and more stuff.
