Marketing Information
The BlackBerry® Z30 makes conversations feel so natural and real, it's like you are in the same room. It has a stunning 5" display along with unique BlackBerry® Natural Sound technology, which means that while you're in BBM™ Video, you can see in vivid detail and hear every word with such clarity, you can share like you're there together. And with a battery that gives you up to 25 hours of mixed use, you can share all day long. Bring your conversations to life with the BlackBerry Z30!

Share like you're there
Beneath the surface of the BlackBerry Z30 lies BlackBerry Natural Sound technology. This powerful audio technology gives your BBM™ Voice2 and Video1 calls a more natural sound so you feel like you are there. The quality of the audio allows you to hear nuances and variations in tone, so you get more out of every conversation and unique sharing experiences.

Keep your conversations close
At the heart of the BlackBerry Z30 lies BlackBerry® Hub. With one swipe you can peek into all your messages from wherever you are. Then choose to dip into your messages in more detail or simply return to what you were doing, without missing a beat.

Effortlessly responsive
The BlackBerry® Keyboard learns how you type to provide personalised next-word suggestions, which you can simply flick into your messages, helping to give you an efficient and effortless response rate to all your messages.

Share more, for longer
Powering the BlackBerry Z30 is a truly hard-working battery. With up to 25 hours of mixed use, you can keep going for longer. So not only can the BlackBerry Z30 keep up with you, it can help you do more for longer.

Capture the right moment, every time
BlackBerry® Time Shift starts capturing your photo before you even take it, giving you the power to select and adjust the image to get that perfect moment. With the ability to change what you see, you can always be sure to capture the right moment.

Stay in the flow
Engaging in a BBM™ conversation has never been easier. The beautiful 5" screen helps BBM chats come to life, and with BBM™ Now in any app, you can receive and respond to all your BBM messages from within any app. Whether you are browsing the web or watching a video, you can always remain connected and responsive.
