Back in February at the MWC in Barcelona BlackBerry announced its two new phones, the BlackBerry Q20 QWERTY keyboard smarpthone and BlackBerry Z3 all touch phone. While the Q20 is still awaiting to be released, the Z3 is already here. Well, almost. A special limited edition called Jakarta destined for the Indonesian market is now available for pre-orders through local carriers Indosat and XL. The phone will hit the stores in two weeks, on May 13th. BlackBerry made good on its promise and priced the phone under $200. In Indonesia the Blackberry Z3 Jakarta Edition costs IDR 2,199,000 which, given the current exchange rate, is about $190 or €137.
Blackberry Z3 Jakarta Edition Phone
BlackBerry teamed up with Foxconn to make the all-touch BlackBerry Z3. With its 5-inch qHD (540 x 960) display, the Z3 is quite big for a BlackBerry phone. It is powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 200 processor and has 1.5 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory expandable via microSD slot. The BlackBerry Z3 is equipped with a 5-megapixel main camera and a 1.1-megapixel sensor located on the front panel. Other features include 3G connectivity, FM radio and a fair 2,500 mAh battery.
The BlackBerry Z3 runs BlackBerry OS version 10.2.1 which includes all the features of the platform customized for Indonesia. The BlackBerry Hub helps users keep their communication well organized by gathering text messages, emails, social media updates and notifications in one easily accessible place. Users can even set up filters to keep their Hub nice and clean. BBM Channels features a variety of Indonesian channels and thanks to support for BlackBerry Natural Sound all voice and video conversation will be as natural as if users were talking face to face.
The platform also comes with Time Shift and Story Maker features. Time Shift takes a few photos in a very rapid succession so you can choose the one you like the most. Story Maker, on the other hand, lets you weave photos and video together to create a HD movie and effortlessly share it with your friends. BB10 also includes Instant Preview and Reply Now features which make viewing and replying to BBM, texts and emails easier and faster than ever before.
