I'm not surprised. Everyone that I've talked to who has one loves it.

I got to take one for a test-drive finally. Feel, fit and finish are superb. OS feels a little too Apple-ish, but I like the shortcut swipes and such. This is a phenomenal catch-up step to be on par with the iPhone. Really dig the phone. BB is back.

You're right - I don't follow it closely enough. I got the down 8% from The Star, who seem to hate RIM.

Main problem with the Z10 so far is the battery life. I know I've been using it pretty hard early on getting a feel for everything but I think they should have gone for a 2100 instead.

It seems like I should consider the Q10. I hear it's battery life will be much better.

The Q10 will have a bigger battery and a smaller screen.

Not to support freak outs, but that's pretty ridiculous.

I could be wrong but it's my understanding that it does sync with Google Calendar but it doesn't Sync with Outlook via USB yet.

I haven't checked yet but once the PlayBook gets updated to BlackBerry 10 it shouldn't matter.

Fixed as part of the update. The top 5 big "fixes" below.


3rd Party App Performance
We’ve improved performance for 3rd party applications, so developers can build apps that run fast and smooth for you. With this update, you might want to keep an eye out for some fresh new app launches in March, like WhatsApp.
Guess what’s up #TeamBlackBerry? WhatsApp Messenger is coming to #BlackBerry10 in March ^DH

— BlackBerry (@BlackBerry) February 24, 2013

Phone, Calendar, and Contacts
Among the top improvements and features are fixes for Gmail calendars on BlackBerry 10. You’ll also find improvements in the BlackBerry Hub for logging calls log and how conversations are handled. We’ve also made general improvements to importing contacts from online sources.

Camera
We’ve optimized the camera for better photos in low-light situations. You’ll love the difference this makes for photos where you don’t use a flash – like the Time Shift Camera feature.

Browser and Media
With more and more of you using the gorgeous screen on the BlackBerry Z10 to consume online videos and media, we’ve made a number of improvements to the software in the way the browser handles video playback to provide a fantastic experience.

Battery Life
The software team has included a number of battery life optimizations with over 60 battery saving improvements since launch to keep you moving. These combined improvements are designed so that you see improvements in battery life and heavy users especially should see a longer average usage per charge cycle.

I'm testing one out here in the states right now for work. It's going to take me a while to get used to the gesture-only aspects of the phone.
