If the Z10 looked something like Blackberry was trying to build an iPhone copy to house its BB10 platform, the just announced Z30 would be the BB10 Galaxy S4 or HTC One. After holding it for a few minutes, I'm convinced it's something I wouldn't mind holding for at least a few minutes more.
While there have been leaks aplenty over the summer, BlackBerry has now officially announced the successor to its all-touch Z10. Say hello to the Z30.

BlackBerry's Super Bowl ad from last night was... uh... interesting. The company claimed that in 30 seconds, it was easier to show us what BB10 couldn't do—which is perhaps some of the laziest marketing ever.
Turns out BlackBerry's proud claim that the new BB10 phones are launching with 70,000 bespoke apps was a bit of a lie—with one of the company's own men admitting that up to 40 per cent of these are frantic Android port jobs.
So, you've read about the new BlackBerrys in exhaustive detail. One big questions remains, though: are any of you actually going to buy one?
Today BlackBerry demoed what it's calling BlackBerry Balance, a clever way of separating one's personal and work lives in one device. You don't see it as much these days but carrying two phones—one for business, one for pleasure—was commonplace not too long ago. I remember having a BlackBerry 6200 alongside my…
BlackBerry announced two phones today, but it's clear which is the favorite son. The Z10 looks like a winner; it's got brains and body enough to face the iPhones and Galaxy S IIIs of the world head-on. It's got a release date and a price. It's a phone any company would be proud to call a flagship. In fact, its only…

Well, here goes. RIM is announcing its new BlackBerry 10 OS and hardware today. This could be the launch that gets RIM back in the game for smartphones. Or it could be the last time BlackBerry is relevant. It's a big moment.
