Re: I don't like the Limited Edition colour... Substitute for normal Z10?

But I'm sure it won't be too hard to purchase a spare black battery door in the near future. That's what I think I'll do.

Re: I don't like the Limited Edition colour... Substitute for normal Z10?

I don't like that red LE color, in my opinion it is ideal for girls, or younger people, and not for us more serious folks. I'm slightly dissapointed with LE, i was thinking it would be more powerfull than standard Z10, and would have some personal engraving like "thank (name last name) developer to support BB10" or similar. When i get mine, i will get rid of that red shell immediately.

Red is also not my favorite color to be honest. A more powerful phone would have been even nicer, and that was also I was hoping for.

But hey, if you receive a gift, like that you can't complain :-)


A like is always appreciated,
but a nomination for BB Elite even more :-)

Re: I don't like the Limited Edition colour... Substitute for normal Z10?

I prefer the black over the red but I look at it from the perspective that the red will draw more attention to the device and be a conversation starter.  It would have been nice to have the LE device at launch but I'm sure they are building them as fast as can be.  I can't wait for notification that mine has shipped.

The device will indeed attract attention when you have him in your hands. And I can't wait to show him of to my friends, which will be extremely jealous :-P

Don't like the red color too. 

 

From the photo, the limited edition does not look like textured rubbery back side, the back side is more like paint plastic something, very easy to collect fingerprints.

Re: I don't like the Limited Edition colour... Substitute for normal Z10?

I thought the all red was not "me" either. I initially considered giving it to my wife, but once I put the BB back cover protector on it (can buy), it really looks cool. It looks like a Porsche race car with the black and red contours.

It's not painted. It is a red resin. You have to look hard to see the finger prints. The glass is better then the Dev Alpha in terms of smudges and finger prints.

You can paint your Red Z10 black.

Re: I don't like the Limited Edition colour... Substitute for normal Z10?

I've been to the BB Jam Europe, so I received a black Z10 cover. And as soon as I received my LE, it will probably be put directly in this cover. Now the only thing I need, is the LE Z10 :-)
