A couple of months back the ailing Canadian manufacturer launched its first phablet, the BlackBerry Z30. It is offered in the U.S. exclusively by Verizon, but there exists the possibility that Verizon might lose this exclusivity in the near future. A BlackBerry Z30 variant compatible with AT&T has surfaced at the FCC, and while that’s no confirmation that the carrier is going to launch the phablet, it does give some hope to those AT&T subscribers that have been waiting for this phablet to launch on their carrier.
The Z30 is a rather unique device, it is the last BB10 device to be produced under ex-CEO Thorsten Heins and produced before the company radically changed its course. It has now brought Foxconn onboard as a partner, while the company has reduced the number of devices that its going to release in 2014. Besides that, the Z30 is the first BlackBerry device to have a 5 inch 720×1,280 pixel resolution display with a 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. While sales of BlackBerry devices have dipped in this year, it wouldn’t hurt the company to have its device available on another major U.S. carrier. AT&T and BlackBerry have yet t0 comment on the possibility of a Z30 launch.
