Sounds like you heard exactly what you wanted to hear.

Well, there were none of the Big Surprises that were making the rounds on other sites. It isn't quite as fast as a Lumia 920. ActiveSync is ActiveSync. Browser seems quick but not game changing.

The Z10 is a very nice phone. A complete revamp for BlackBerry (FKA RIM) but I am not sure it is going to move the needle. And the Q10 not being out until April? is a killer.

There were several questions afterwards at lunch asking if Alicia Keys would be making sales calls.

The Q10 to me seems a better choice than the Z10 , But a 3 month wait after the announcement seems a bit too long for me . Oh well life's a xxxxx then there's Lumia 920 , this time.

I haven't had it long enough to appreciate the new features.
I will force myself to use it through the weekend...

No issues (as in broken features) but I have a lot of usability items and UI issues that I am struggling with.

I don't have a Z10, but the update to the DA yesterday included the HUB. When I configured GMail accounts syncing email, contacts and calendar were all available options.

DC/DC - I will take a side by side photo later (don't have a third camera handy).
The usable screen size is a bit larger (less than 1/2 inch) on the 920.
Overall it is a big smaller but much thinner and lighter.

The 920 weighs about 2 tons more. OK, a lot more.

On the plus side, the charging and HDMI ports are on the side AND NOT ON THE BOTTOM which is a pet peeve of mine.

No wireless charging on the Z10 (spoke to RIM sorry BlackBerry about that).

Love the form factor of the Zee/Zed 10. The Q10 (not available until who knows when) is gorgeous.

And confirming what HRBuckley posted; every account I tried to set up asked if I wanted to sync contacts and calendar.

Excellent! Thanks for the info. Thinner and lighter is what I wanted to hear. I'll also be interested in your feedback on the battery. My 920 was been insanely good.

My battery eval will take a while.
I am running the device with everything enabled (NFC, Bluetooth) all the time.
I get great life on the 920 only when they are disabled.

No worries. Take your time. I run my 920 with NFC disabled, but Bluetooth and WiFi enabled all the time FWIW.

Does anyone know if I buy an unlocked z10 from the UK, will the 4G LTE work on AT&T's network?
