BlackBerry spent months touting the virtues of its new Z10 smartphone before its launch, and now it says the Z10 is even better than ever, thanks to the device's first over-the-air (OTA) software update. In a blog post announcing the update on Thursday, Michael Clewey, BlackBerry's director of handheld software product …
Good luck to them...
I'm not trying to avoid Google or Apple -- I switched from iPhone to Android three years ago only because I couldn't deal with the IOS smartphone-as-a-computer-peripheral model -- but I do miss its battery life.

I'd like to like blackberry
I did have a company bold once and it was the buggiest thing I've ever had. Let's hope their QC has improved.
Where is the UMA?!?!
When they add UMA back in, I'll buy one within minutes.
In fact, that goes for any of the top smartphones.
Except iPhone. I'm not that desperate.
Buy one in minutes
If they cut the price to below £300, I'd buy one in minutes.

Blackberry has played this stupid game and the update seems to be depended on your carrier issuing it. Why, why, why....I bet it will be several months wait if not years...
Other than that I do like my Z10
either thats pretty quick turn around between reported issues since release and an update or they were working on most of this before the release and didn't feel there was anything in there worth delaying the release for.
Actually I hope its the second as rushed fixes with inadequate testing usually doesn't end well.
