For what seems like the hundredth time to date, the rumors of BlackBerry’s demise may have been a bit premature. Don’t get us wrong; the company seems farther away than ever from being able to recapture its former glory, but we now know it intends to solider on, rather than slicing itself up and selling off to the highest bidder. As the story of BlackBerry the company continues, so too does that of its phones, and today we get some additional details of how its latest will arrive.
Late last month, we saw Verizon announce the BlackBerry Z30. The five-incher was set to start selling sometime this month, going for just about $200 on-contract. At the time, we just had a general “November” ETA, but today the carrier clarifies that sales of the Z30 are set to begin this Thursday, November 14.
Verizon’s going to be the only US network officially selling the Z30, so if you’re still carrying that BlackBerry torch (no pun intended) and have been curious about upgrading to a device more in line with the sort of sizes we’re used to from Android flagships, the Z30 might be worth a look; in any case, who know when the next BlackBerry flagship might arrive, so this could be the best option for the time being.
