Does a Whopping Great Battery Make You Interested in BlackBerry's Z30?

By Gary Cutlack on at

Here's a shocker, a new phone that's not been leaked all over the internet for the last six months; the BlackBerry Z30. It's a 5-inch model, and BlackBerry seems to have correctly identified that power use is a key concern among buyers, claiming the Z30 has the "largest battery ever to be built into a BlackBerry smartphone."

The Z30 arrives running version 10.2 of the BlackBerry OS on its 5-inch Super AMOLED display, and as well as the big battery, BlackBerry claims the phone has "New Antenna Technology" inside it to boost connectivity in areas of weak signal.

The BlackBerry blog has a few more tech specs, saying the Z30's battery is a 2880mAh capacity unit, plus it's powered by by a "1.7 GHz processor with quadcore graphics." BlackBerry says the Z30 ought to hit the UK from the middle of next week. There are no prices available yet, although BB has stuck up a holding page for it which you can see here: [BlackBerry]
