Video shows RIM handset larger than iPhone 5
A video showing the BlackBerry Z10 has surfaced online, with the smartphone being compared to the iPhone 5. The Z10, previously seen in leaked photos, is shown to be a physically larger handset compared to Apple's offering, and though Research In Motion's device isn't running on finalized software, various operating system features are directly compared in the YouTube clip.
The physical comparison by Telekom Press shows the Z10 as having USB and HDMI ports, a removable back cover with removable 1800mAh battery, and a microSD card slot. The video compares Blackberry's own voice assistant against Siri, showing it as performing some tasks correctly while Siri makes a mistake.
A more thorough walkthrough of BlackBerry 10 has been conducted by a source of BGR, with the 100 screenshots showing how the device is initially set up by the user, home screens, the voice control system, and general configuration settings. The sources also claim the Z10 will be priced at less than $200 on a two-year contract at launch, suggesting that RIM is attempting to gain audience share by undercutting the flagship handsets from other manufacturers.
