Can the Z30 revive Waterloo-based BlackBerry's fortunes?
Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/20/2013 -- BlackBerry has launched its flagship smartphone Z30. It's their "most advanced smartphone" which runs on Blackberry's BB10 version 10.2 operating system. Z30 features a five-inch all touchscreen Super AMOLED display, updated version of BBM and a host of multimedia capabilities. The BlackBerry Z30 smartphone includes a 2880 mAh battery, the largest battery ever built into a BlackBerry smartphone.
BlackBerry is exploring a number of "strategic alternatives", with the possibility of a joint venture, technology partnerships or a sale of the company. Whether Z30 revives BlackBerry’s fortunes is to be seen in coming weeks. Though sales last quarter missed analysts’ estimates, it has shown strength in Latin America & the Middle East. BlackBerry is obviously excited about the Asia-Pacific region, with the Z30 launching in Malaysia & the rumoured launch of BBM for iPhone and Android in Indonesia.
BlackBerry will start selling its Z30 in the UK and Middle East next week. The company is trying to regain its market share from Apple & Samsung. Apple's fastest smartphone iPhone 5S was launched last week. iPhone 5S Keynote details can be found here. Comparisons will soon follow.
Blackberry will report their Q2 2014 Earnings on 27 September 2013. Earnings Impact will provide the fastest transcript of the Conference Call, so you get all the details first.
