Writes Gizmodo‘s Jesus Diaz:
I’ve always hated BlackBerry phones. Disgracefully ugly bricks they were-until the BlackBerry Z10. The BlackBerry Z10 is hot. Truly beautiful, elegant hardware.
Gizmodo also has comparative photos of the iPhone and the BlackBerry Z10, and side by side it does look like a very attractive alternative.
If RIM is to begin a turnaround with the Z10, online buzz will be important. And it looks like they’re off to a strong start. More pictures here.
