Beta testers comment on Z30 Carbonite Pocket Case

Interested users who have applied to test the new Z30 Carbonite Pocket Case have begun receiving it in the mail. The folks at the Crackberry forums have given their verdict regarding the case. There seems to be mixed reviews from the beta testers.

Though some have claimed that the case’s design is “nice and elegant,” others commented on how bulky and heavy it was. However, many also praised the durability of the case. Other reactions include disappointment in the plastic-like feel of the case’s surface.

Hopefully, BlackBerry will be taking note of the feedback. It seems that the general consensus is that the Carbonite Pocket Case is good, but it still has room for improvement.

BlackBerry Z30 Carbonite Pocket case being tested

Instead of the usual applications, users in the Beta Zone are currently testing a new accessory for the BlackBerry Z30. The BlackBerry Carbonite Pocket is basically a protective pouch, but with a twist. This time, the folks at BlackBerry have decided to use carbonite.

From the product description, it is said to be thin and light. It also features a soft inner lining made of fabric. This will ensure that the device will be protected from the occasional bump or scratch. Another added feature is its automatic power-saving capabilities.

Qualified users may now sign up to give the product a go.

 

External battery charger for BlackBerry Z30 in the works

The BlackBerry Z30’s predecessors, the Z10 and Q10, both came with battery charger bundles. Although they differ with the former’s non-removable battery, news on a possible release of a battery charger for the Z30 have been released.

In the absence of spare batteries, a Z30 charger will work similarly to a power bank that can be used in case a quick recharging is needed while users are on the go. The model has shown exceptional longevity in terms of battery life, but a handy power source is always welcome, especially during emergencies.

Though no price has been released, its debut in the market will surely be something to look forward to.

Verizon to launch BlackBerry Z30 in November

After much speculation regarding the BlackBerry Z30’s release, a statement posted on Verizon’s Twitter account silenced any talks about earlier releases.

The Z30 will feature a 5-inch HD display that will be sold through Verizon’s official website with a price tag of $199.99. It will come with two-year activation. Eligible customers may also get Verizon Edge if they wish to upgrade for $22.91 per moth for 24 months.

The bigger screen won’t be a treat that’s exclusive to the working class who needs larger keyboards and a better view of e-mails and important documents.  Even the gamers will enjoy mobile gaming more. The Z30 will also allow users to wireless connect itself to a compatible HDTV. This will be a handy tool for presentations.
