fancy a BlackBerry Z10? get it now for 649AED!

if you fancy a BlackBerry Z10 than now might be the right time to hit on it. Crazydeals.AE  is selling it right now on 649AED.  That is 250AED cheaper than Axiom and any other retailer is selling right now.

You can choose between black and white version, but I assume they have limited stocks only. Despite not being the youngest BlackBerry anymore the Z10 is still an actual release and is having the amazing BlackBerry 10 OS which even lets you install Android Apps.

You can read my short review on the Z10 which i made for this blog here (LINK)

Axiom Telecom is now offering the BlackBerry Z10 in Black or White for 899AED only.  That is around 245$ which is 54$ less than in the BlackBerry online shop in Canada….

If you are looking out for a great OS on a budget phone this is the one to go for. Or wait for the Z3, if it comes to the UAE…..

BlackBerry OS 10.2 now installed on my Z10

IMG_00000006i have yesterday decided to update my Z10 to 10.2.0.1047. I took the download the file here: (LINK). It is a quite big file with more than a gigabyte but went through quite fast.

Installation was a charm with the auto-loader.  The important thing was to back up the contacts and messages for me as i cannot afford to lose them, that worked well with an APP called IntouchApp Contacts.

The bad thing is that my notebooks is running windows 8 64bit and BlackBerry Link is total crap. Hence reloading the backed up data was not possible and i had to do everything manually which really sucked.

Review: Mireo Don’t Panic offlie Sat Nav for the BlackBerry Z10

IMG_00000690I have bought the full version for the Middle East Maps of Mireo Don’t Panic a few weeks ago and tested it as good as possible. I had to go to Al Ain the other day where it was extremely helpful. The routes are announced perfectly and even the speed limits are shown correctly. I can really highly recommend this app on the BlackBerry Z10.
