Oh Those Lucky Z3 Owners!

BlackBerry Z3! The phone that may just be turning things around for BlackBerry. It is after all the first BB10 phone where demand has exceeded supply, much to the chagrin of several internet trolls we know all too well. So, as those trolls sit in their mother’s basements, pounding away on their keyboards, telling people that the Z3 release just couldn’t possibly have been a success, let’s look on an admire those lucky ones that managed to get the Z3 upon release.

And what a machine they have! I for one was worried about what an ‘economy’ device from BlackBerry and Foxconn would look like. I’ve seen the cheap android devices, and was worried to have a device that looked like that with a BlackBerry logo on it. What a surprise! This is one nice looking device. I want one!

Look Moto, the Z3 has 2 camera's, and a 5" screen, so sorry.

Half a world away, I am getting to enjoy a bit of Jakarta fun myself. BlackBerry included a special set of stickers with the Z3, that can be shared! If your friend sends you one of these special stickers, just tap on it from within the app  (not the hub) and download it yourself for free! Such a great idea! Now, we can watch Nusantara’s Kid travel the world!

Poor kid ate something spicy!

And now, our friend who was there in the middle of the action and managed to get his hands on a Z3, Red Fox One, has informed me that there is yet another bonus for Z3 users. Free Apps! Specifically for the Z3. Red Fox One also has a Z10 and these apps are not available for that device, only his new shiny Z3! What a great surprise for new Z3 owners, and new BB10 users. Get a great new phone, and have a ton of free apps at your disposal.

A special freebie for those that were lucky enough to get a Z3 at launch.

For too long we’ve been hearing a few voices in the BlackBerry community crying out that BlackBerry focusing on enterprise was horrible for the consumer. That us consumers would be left behind. Well, our two men on the ground where all the action is, are sure enjoying their new consumer devices.

Some of the apps available free for new Z3 owners.

Looking forward to even more discoveries by Red Fox One, and stay tuned for Veeru’s opinion on his lucky buy!
