Hot off the press - as the BlackBerry Z3 makes it way through Asia, today sees the latest BlackBerry 10 handset announced for yet another country - this time in Hong Kong.

The BlackBerry Z3 will be available to customers from July 8, 2014 through carrier 3 Hong Kong, and authorized partners including Broadway, Fortress, Wilson, Suning, Chung Yuen, Nuance Watson and CMK.  

Gallant Leon, Managing Director for Hong Kong and Taiwan at BlackBerry said, "Hong Kong is a key market for us and we are excited to be working with our partners to bring in the BlackBerry Z3 to customers here. This device gives users more ways to connect, share and communicate, providing the best tool for secure, reliable communications and collaboration with friends, family and co-workers. Priced affordably, the BlackBerry Z3 will extend the full capabilities of the BlackBerry 10 Operating System version 10.2.1 experience for a new generation of customers in Hong Kong."

Are you in Hong Kong and tempted? For the money the Z3 sure is good value. It may not be quite as high spec as the Z30, but it sure is a beautiful BlackBerry and I speak from experience - I have one.
