In the face of increasingly dwindling market share, as well as reports that the company is "exploring strategic alternatives" (meaning the board is looking to sell off the company), BlackBerry has announced the launch of the Z30, the successor to the brand's all-touch Z10. Measuring 140.7mm x 72mm x 9.4mm, the device packs a 5-inch 1,280 x 720 Super AMOLED display, stereo speakers, and the latest version the BlackBerry 10 operating system. Under the hood, one finds 1.7 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro chip, 2GB RAM, Adreno 320 GPU and 16GB of storage. It's all powered by a 2,880mAh battery, which is said to last 25 hours of "mixed use." The Z30 will support 4G LTE, dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC, with a Paratek Antenna for better reception in low-signal areas. The BlackBerry Z30 is set launch next week in the UK and the Middle East, with a wider release scheduled for the holiday season.
