What BlackBerry’s Z30 does better than any other smartphone

Verizon subscribers looking to get their hands on BlackBerry’s Z30 phablet only have to wait a couple more days. Verizon announced on Tuesday that it will start selling the Z30 online starting on Thursday, November 14th for $199.99 with a two-year service agreement. The Z30, which has been widely available in Canada since October, features a 5-inch Super AMOLED display, a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, microSDXC support, an 8-megapixel camera and the new BlackBerry 10.2 operating system. Verizon is offering the Z30 at a time of great uncertainty for BlackBerry, as the company has seen its handset sales numbers absolutely tank while also seeing encouraging enthusiasm for its cross-platform BBM messaging service.
