Default Got me a Verizon Z30

Please Login to Remove!

Is it still Zed or is it Zee now?
In any event, we have no Zed30 Forum!

He is, but he's got other things on his plate as well.

Oh, yeah. I am sure he does. Shoot, don't we all.

I was just answering fourstring. Mods patrol the board and Tom wasn't around when I joined.

Form factor is very nice.
Too soon to tell about battery life.
Same deal killers as with every BB10 device - meaning killers for me, and perhaps not for you. Can't test call quality yet.
I still need Skydrive and Lync.
I still need to have scalable fonts within an e-mail.

5" screen is nice.

Folks criticize WP8 for missing apps, but compared to BlackBerry, WP is practically iOS. I miss banking apps, Starbucks, SkyDrive, and a few others. Any one of those by itself is no big deal, but all together it effects the user experience significantly. Of course that doesn't stop me from swapping back and forth from my iPhone to my Q10 with regularity.

Yep, and believe it or not I think Bing Weather is an excellent weather app.
Great form factor, nice hardware, still BB10.

Hey, I just noticed something while perusing the Z30 specs on GSM Arena. The Z30 has Adobe Flash!

Most of the things that are killers for you are killers for me too.

I read somewhere that Skydrive is in the works. There is a 3rd party appt that works with Skydrive
Cloud Explorer for SkyDrive (for BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry PlayBook) - BlackBerry World

Not sure about this

Lync is available with the latest leak and the upgraded Runtime. Yeah, it's an Android app, but it might suit your purposes.

Does it require BES10 or is this the sideload version?

I downloaded the apk directly to my Z10. It runs fine, except that I learned our company's servers aren't set up for the 2013 mobile app yet. I'm now looking for a 2010 version.

I knew about the 2013 version.
If you find a working Lync 2010 version, please let me know. Others are looking for it too.
