Though I am a Verizon Wireless Lifestyle Blogger, and the phone was supplied to me by BlackBerry, all opinions on the device are my own.
A few days ago I attended an event in NYC for the Verizon Lifestyle Bloggers. I was introduced to so many fun things. I will be telling you more about some of them soon, I promise. Imagine how excited we were when BlackBerry handed us all one a BlackBerry Z10. This phone was just launched by Verizon on the 28th.
I have just started playing with the phone but wanted to tell you about 5 of my favorite features.
1: The Keyboard
Everyone that knows anything about blackberry knows they have had the smallest keys of any phone. The new Z10 has touch keyboard that learns your style of writing, then suggests words that you can add to the conversation with just a flick of the finger. It is also so advanced that it will learn your spelling mistakes and suggest the right words.
2: The Camera
Anyone with active kids will love the camera. It has a time shift mode that will capture just before and after the picture is taken. No more closed eyes, just go back in time to open them up. Check it out:
3: Multimedia on the go
I love that, not only can I take pics and listen to music, but, I can turn the pics I take into a movie right from my phone. BlackBerry Movie Maker lets you chose some of your favorite movies and music and will then instantly turn them into a movie.
4: BlackBerry Balance
Blackberry Balance allows you to use your phone at work without getting in trouble. It keeps your personal info separate from your work info. But allows you to switch back and forth easily. Data in the work perimeta of the phone is secured with 256-bit AES encryption. When you are using the work perimeter you can use the company firewall. This is great when you want to have access to your companies networked files.
5: The BlackBerry Hub
The hub holds all your info about incoming notifications. This is where, with just a swipe of your finger you can get all your info on oncoming phone calls, texts and social media. No more closing down what you are doing to see what that little ding noise meant.
These are just a few of the great features I have found so far. I will share more as I discover them.
