z30 announced..with better specs


Recommended Posts

Given the instability with BlackBerry, grab one while you can. It's unfortunate, but I think BB10 is an example of a good product moving to the market too late. I think BlackBerry can do better as an enterprise focused company like IBM.

Here are some Specs from Negri Electronics which will be selling the unlocked version, they are in Las Vegas, NV.




You notice what the 4G LTE frequencies say?


1800 = band 2, 2600 = band 7 FDD-LTE.

I'm just saying that Sprint's version maybe not so far off. The frequencies they can get, and that BlackBerry did sign a license deal for LTE-Advance on there phones for which the Z30 would be the 1st from them to use it.

The BlackBerry Z30 passed through the FCC OET today.  It is multi band LTE.  But for Sprint, only band 25 LTE 1900 is relevant.

the only fly in this ointment for me is can i integrate the phone into my google apps..if it works as well as my frankenphone it's a keeper if not i'll have to find another android device.. :(

Do you mean Google apps for Business? Because they still use EAS unlike regular gmail.

    • Great job on your analysis of small cells versus the 3.45GHZ and the population coverage requirements. I wonder if the fcc is stalling because they may address the key limitation of of 2.5: the convoluted frequencies. Not sure how they would get there, but it would be better public policy if you could actually use a single license in current times, ie 5, 10 or 20MHz. Of course they could also go in more of a nonprofit or small business direction. But most likely they will keep it as planned given how messy the transition would be. In many/most metro areas BRS/EBS is fully licensed. Would be nice if they put pressure on the squatters.
    • I didn't actually look at the buildout requirements before making that comment - they're definitely going to have to deploy on macro sites if they want to hit the buildout requirements. PEA001 has a population of 25,237,061, of which they will have to hit 45% in 4 years (11,356,677) and 80% in 8 years (20,189,649). If they were to cover the entirely, all five boroughs, of NYC using only small cells (something I'd say is impossible considering their current small cell density), they'd only be covering 32% of the population in the PEA. And this is with spectrum that only adds 300Mb/s per sector and will likely have only 50% the range of their current n41 equipment. Doesn't really seem worth it to me. I'm of the opinion that they're looking to hedge their bets in further EBS/BRS acquisition. 
    • These strand mounts also are deployed with Band 46 (LAA), in my experience. I have yet to encounter a strand mount with exclusively 2/66. 
    • Bought a esim "sim" card a few weeks ago that operates in all of my more current phones according to its app. It arrived a couple of weeks early from Berlin.  Now if my MVNOs would get moving and support more than iPhones and rarely Pixels so I can test this thing. https://esim.me The only item really troubling so far is reviews in google play store keep getting deleted, even 5 star ones.
    • Still waiting impatiently for my T-Mobile security update.
