Deal: BlackBerry Z10 smartphone available from £399

In less than six months, the price of the BlackBerry Z10 fell by more than 20 per cent to under £400. You can now buy it for £399 at British supermarket Asda unlocked. That's only £40 (or so) more than the BlackBerry Q5, which is pitched as the company's mainstream handset.

The Z10 comes with some great hardware. There's a 4.2in display with a 1,280 x 768 resolution, 2GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a front facing one, DLNA compatibility, a HDMI port, NFC, a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960a SoC clocked at 1.5GHz that supports 4G/LTE bands.

Other features include a battery that can power the device for up to 11 hours, BlackBerry 10 OS, a user interface that has been thoroughly rethought with BlackBerry Flow, Remember, BBM, Balance, BB Browser, BlackBerry Protect and a slew of other services.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
