BlackBerry Z30 UK release, shipping unlocked to US


The BlackBerry Z30 smartphone was recently introduced and the release is now starting to roll out worldwide. It has just become available in the UK but there has been no launch date confirmed yet for the US. However, the unlocked BlackBerry Z30 can be ordered through the UK for international shipping to the US and elsewhere.

The Z30 is BlackBerry’s latest flagship offering, and we previously gave some details of some UK pricing for the phone. With Carphone Warehouse deliveries are expected on September 30 for the black variety, and there’s a later shipping date of October 15 for the white color option.

Now Selfridges in the UK has released the BlackBerry Z30 with a price tag of £529, equivalent to around US $854. The phone can be shipped SIM free to the US, and this may be a good option for those stateside who are impatient for the phone to launch there.

Specs of the BlackBerry Z30 include a 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro Plus dual-core processor, a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with resolution of 1280 x 768, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD to 64GB).

It also has an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2880 mAh battery, and it runs the BlackBerry 10.2 OS. If you want to order this handset for the UK or for international shipping, the BlackBerry Z30 is listed as “in stock” at Selfridges here.

Earlier today we told how it’s now possible to order the unlocked BlackBerry Z10 or Q10 through BlackBerry’s US website. However, the upcoming Z30 is not available to pre-order in the US yet.

    I’m absolutely staggered at just how good the Z30 looks . I have a Z10 which I love , but wow , I really need the Z30.
    Blackberry have really delivered on this phone.

      Compare to the highest end Iphone 5S, for example

      What is better in the BB:
      screen quality – super AMOLED vs LCD

      higher resolution
      larger screen
      larger battery

      better cameras – front and back
      faster processor
      better stereo speakers
      better and numerous microphones
      more modern operating system (IOS is way too old and outdated)

      In fact, nothing the IPhone has is better than the BB – NOTHING. Go ahead and do your research but looks for side by side comparisons

      Yes, the Galaxy 4S is one that would beat it in specs but basically the only one (overall specs that is) and it would barely beat it overall

    Awesome device. I have the z10 which is nice, and would love to have this one. bb10 is so powerful that is does not need a quad. Spec that dude, it’s about personal preference.

    Skipped the Z10 and Q10, this was the phone I was waiting for. OS10.2, excellent speakers, Jelly bean runtime, Android app sideloading…definitely the ultimate Blackberry and hopefully not their last hurrah.
