We know, it’s the age of the “phablets”, the ginormous devices that blur the lines between traditional phones and what we’ve come to know as tablets. And anything with a display below 4.5 inches just won’t cut it for all you tech addicts out there.
Still, I’m pretty sure there are a few folks left that consider portability a strong point. But here’s where it all gets tricky. Trying to find a high-end-ish Android-powered petite phone by 2013 standards is like watching an Adam Sandler movie – unbearably painful.
But that’s the upside of being a down to earth tech aficionado and not a blind “fanboy” of a certain OS or manufacturer. You welcome diversity and competition and are willing to give anybody a second, third or fourth chance, regardless of past hiccups.
Enter BlackBerry, whose new Z10 phone is not exactly a revolutionary device, but arguably one of the best in its “weight division”. The 4.2-incher has been very recently released in the United States, and, if you felt it wasn’t attractive enough, it’s now part of an incredible promotional offer, courtesy of LogicBuy.
The online retailer sells the Z10 for a limited time only for the low, low price of $67.49. And it also throws free shipping in there to sweeten the deal. Naturally, you’ll be asked to pen a two-year contract with Verizon to qualify for the deal, but the good news is the offer addresses both new customers of the network and existing ones looking to upgrade.
Meanwhile, Big Red continues to charge $199.99 for the BlackBerry Z10 via its official website, which means you can save a whopping $132.50 by going through Logic Buy. Just remember to use the coupon code “TALKLOGIC” before checkout and try to hurry, because the deal is set to expire on April 22, which is just three days for now. Not to mention it’s likely for stocks to be exhausted early, as this is really a very lucrative promo.
The Z10 runs BlackBerry 10 OS and sports a 4.2-inch 1,280 x 768 pixels resolution display while packing a dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait CPU under its hood. Other features include a whopping 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of on-board storage, microSD support, an 8 MP rear cam, 4G LTE connectivity and a 1,800 mAh battery.
The phone is available in black and white, with both versions currently part of LogicBuy’s deal. Anyone thinking of getting one of these or are you going to stick with your Androids for a little while longer?
