Re: Limited Edition BB10: Special Features

@goku: from the photos n videos i saw it's the same as dev alpha b. i'd be verry disappointed if LE has the same spec, especially the 1GB RAM

Re: Limited Edition BB10: Special Features

Where did you guys see this? There's no way in BB is going to give dev's a device with only 1gb RAM when retail is 2gb (at least I hope not...)...

It's Z10 in Red. I've seen it in Jam Europe and it looks fantastic. It's very fast, but guys who got it were complaining about heating of the phone back (actually I wouldn't be surprised, he was all the time on WiFi syncing some stuff and playing with the phone)

Kind of annoyed now that I didn't go to BB Jam. They're being handed out there while we have to wait for many more weeks... :smileysad:


Only some VIPs got one. The rest of us mortals have to wait too.

Re: Limited Edition BB10: Special Features

The B had only 1GB whereas the Z10 has the full 2GB, so that's certainly not the case.

 

The B is basically the London with a cheap case, however, or maybe it's the Lisbon. (I really don't care about the details so my brain won't keep track of them for me...)  in any case, it's the same hardware, aside possibly from board revisions, and that's irrelevant since they change them from time to time anyway so there's no fixed target to be the same as.

It's possible with the smooth back on the red LE that it feels like it's getting a bit hotter than the regular Z10 (with a textured back), but it's very unlikely there's any real difference. The phone does warm up nicely when you're doing a lot with it, but everyone should remember how powerful these beasties are compared to phones much older... in any case, they're designed to get this hot and handle it fine, so I don't think there's any reason to suppose it will be a problem.  (As a Canadian, however, I like my devices warm... sometimes you need that when you have cold hands in the winter. ;-)  If I lived in a desert climate I might think otherwise.)
