Blackberry Z3

USD 200.00 | PKR 27,999

Announced: February 2014
Status: Released 2014, May
Blackberry Z3 is an affordable Dual-core smartphone from Blackberry with itโ€™s latest BlackBerry 10 OS.. The phone has 5 inches capacitive touchscreen with qHD resolution of 960 x 540 pixels resulting in ~220 ppi pixel density. The device comes with BB10 based UI and the screen has multitouch function. Blackberry Z3 will be available in Black colour initially.
The Z3 joins the BlackBerry Z10 and Z30 as an all-touch BB10 device. It is due out in April in Indonesia (hence the Jakarta codename) for under $200 retail price โ€” the cheapest BlackBerry 10 device by far โ€” with plans to expand availability beyond Indonesia in the future. The Z3 has only a 3G radio, no LTE, which isn't surprising given the price point, though BlackBerry CEO John Chen did say that BlackBerry has "a plan to take that phone out globally with LTE sometime in the future before I die.
