Our take: Blackberry announced the release of its new smartphone and operating system Wednesday. Daniel Lonescu from PC World writes about how well Blackberry's Z10 will measure up to competitors.
"BlackBerry's Z10 smartphone and new BlackBerry 10 OS made a great first impression during their debut Wednesday, but it remains to be seen whether the phone can help the BlackBerry regain a bit of the market share it lost to the iPhone and Android phones.
"BlackBerry's previous attempts at touchscreen phones did not fare well, so can the Z10 do any better? Let's take a look at the sleek new phone's hardware specs to see how they stack up against the competition.
Measuring up against the competition
"The BlackBerry Z10 is set to arrive in March on all major U.S. carriers, and it will cost $199 with a two-year contract, so it won't try to sway you with a lower price like Nokia's Lumia 920 with Windows Phone 8. The Z10 has 3G and 4G LTE connectivity.
"BlackBerry has chosen a middle-ground display size for its new phone as compared to the big-screen phones and 'phablets' we've seen recently. The Z10 has a 4.2-inch display, which is slightly larger than the iPhone 5 (4 inches) but significantly smaller than the likes of the HTC Droid DNA (5 inches) or the Samsung Galaxy S III (4.8 inches)."
