BlackBerry Q10, Q5, and Z30 win Red Dot design awards

BlackBerry Q10

On top of being the hugely functional devices we know and love, the BlackBerry Q10, BlackBerry Q5, and BlackBerry Z30 are also earning accolades for design. All three just won Red Dot Awards when faced with a pool of over 4,800 entrants and a panel of 40 design experts judging every aspect of the products.

BlackBerry won the same award for the BlackBerry Z10 last year. Brian Paschke, Senior Industrial Designer, Portfolio Direction at BlackBerry talked a bit about their internal process.

"We pride ourselves on industrial design that is simple and intuitive in functionality, while maintaining iconic and familiar elements such as our keyboard and productivity-based user experience. While our smartphones have evolved over time, we remain focused on being highly detail oriented in order to deliver modern and high quality devices."

Good on BlackBerry for roping in the design wins across the board here. I think we're all in agreement that the Q10, Q5, and Z30 are well-designed, but which is your favorite among them? Do you guys think the new Passport and Classic have a shot at winning this award next year?

I agree the Passport and Classic can easily win this. The Q10 is one of the most beautifully designed devices ever made. You should see the white and gold Q10 it's crazy beautiful.

I definitely agree the white passport could win the 3 dots award. Looks very unique, definitely has appeal and it's built looks very solid just like the z30.

Too bad this doesn't really help in BlackBerry's reputation too much except for build quality.

I love my Q10 (only missing the trackpad ;) ) - but I have to disagree.

The device is good but regarding design miles away from a really beautiful design like the Bold 9900 had.
The straight keyboard is boring and not as ergonomic as the smiley one. No aesthetic and protective steel frame ...

Though good that BB has a positive headline due to the awards :)

Z30 hands down. Good build. The all glass front, the trademark battery cover with the textured finish. Love everything about it.

What kind of competition is there for these red dot awards? Like did they beat out androids like the HTC One M8?

Posted via CB10

rdgroulx

My question too. Ok BlackBerry are nice but to give all of them to the same company.... I mean the One, the Moto X, the Expedia, the iPhone 5S are not exactly crappy.

I find it very bizarre to see this. It defies all statistical logic, market reality, peer media review and even common sense. I'm not accusing fraud or bias here but...for real...surely we're not the only ones to find this strange.

I went to red-dot.de to snoop around a bit. The awards go to an insane variety of products, from bicycle racks to desalination straws to stools. Seriously makes me wanna go spend money. A look at the winners for the year gave me the strong impression this isn't a BlackBerry-staged beauty contest.

Thumb-flicked from my Z30 via CB10

slagman5

Out of that list you made, only the One might even compete with the Q10 because the One has that aluminum body. The iPhone maybe slightly behind that. But these plastic Androids I won't even consider for a design award, unless the contest is to see which can blend in with the herd the best...

Hmmm, do you really don't know what red dot is all about? I have a red-dot citrus juicer at home! It's a very very prestigous award in design that is much highly regarded globally. Many companies covet to earn the right to put the red dot logo next to their product when advertising.

Posted via CB10

BBRRYISBAC

Hey PhilipDZ, so what are BlackBerry Phones suppose to look like? No disrespect, I'm just wondering

Posted by my QNX powered Z10

PhilipDZ

They could make them look like they aren't traditional blackberry devices.... give them stainless steel bodies make them really stand out. as far as I'm concerned the q10 q5 look like the Bolds. Z10 looks like the old Motorola DROID X's Z30 is the most stand out phone but it still looks like the average smartphone.

All I'm trying to say is make it really stand out so people ask what it is. I think the passport is a great idea. I really hope the next all touch phone really stands out from the crowd. Maybe give it some chrome sharp edges a unique shape(maybe a curved screen)

No disrespect was taken. But the bold style phones need to go. The diehard BlackBerry fans are the only ones that really like them that's not going to grow the customer base.

Posted via CB10

Tamellingham

Disagree. The Bold style phones were the best BlackBerry produced, design wise: very distinct, very good size, I could stick my 9790 in my top shirt pocket.
You see the popularity of the Curve range (at least here in Scotland). I know of people who like and use Curves not because they are die-hard BlackBerry fans, but because they like the form factor. Not everyone wants to carry around a 6-inch slate.

Congrats to BlackBerry on the awards. All three are great devices and the awards are a confirmation of what we love about BlackBerry: great design and solid products. If the new Classic and Passport can live up to expectations, they'll come away with next year's awards. For me, luv my Q5 as a wonderfully utilitarian daily driver and my Z10 is great when I want a full screen smartphone experience. I like the Q10 too and almost went that route but I found typing on the Q5's keyboard just a little easier for my big thumbs. Once again, Go BlackBerry Go!

Question for Simon: is there a particular feature that inspired you to choose the S5 over the Z30 for every day use? I use the Z30 as my primary personal cell, while the S5 is our "home phone." For me, the weight and thicknesses of the S5 is just right, but the keyboard and hub of BB10, especially on the Z30, keeps me from moving away from BlackBerry and/or switching SIM cards (at least not permanently).

If the Z30 was a few mm thinner and 15-20 grams less hefty, it would be perfect. I don't find the actual form factor (shape) too big and I love the screen. Of course, the S5 screen is great as well, but Kit Kat is so cluttered (at least the way Samsung implements it).

Even my non-bb-loving friends have to admit that the q10 is a beauty.

The Passport has the potential to score again as it is new form factor and the finishing looks to be top notch.

Not surprising that these BlackBerry devices won this award, they are all well designed. I have to say without a doubt my favorite phone from the winners is the Q10 because of its look, feel, and overall performance.

The Q5 has no business being in the running same way the Z10 should not have won last year. There really aren't that many Qwerty devices anyways so the Q10 gets a pass.

RIM99

Disagree on the Z10 - It is a beautifully designed device. Look closely at some of its subtle design elements, not as pronounced as the Z30 (which is very nice as well), but refined and elegant, when it was released it was in my opinion the best designed non keyboard device out there.

I'm on the Z30 now, and wow, what a device! I've been there since the Curve with the trackball (can't remember the number though) . Went with ALL the touch screen BlackBerry's. This device, the Z30, amazes me! I have played with a Q10 in a Verizon store (and yes, the Z30 was on display! ) and I did like it. A very refined BlackBerry keyboard experience. But, I love screen real estate. The Z30 is such a great device for me. I got 24 hrs with moderate use and still had 46% battery left when I finally plugged it in. No other phone I've ever owned would do that PERIOD! Kudos to BlackBerry for making such awesome devices! Keep it up and keep moving! (and yes, I do have a screen shot showing my battery stats. Just ask and I will post! )

The Red Dot Award is an achievement landmark in industrial design. I'm not surprised by the news that BlackBerry won this prize several times, last year and this year again. Congratulations! 
I'm convinced that your sales can increase by using this marketing powerful label more visible and prominent, since it is impartially obtained.
In a market where overwhelming powers often weight  on end-user decisions, this quality standard might make the difference.
Once a BlackBerry customer crosses the edge, he will be a loyal and royal fan for years and years to be its trustworthy friend in step-by-step following the beloved bear logo. Just like me myself did.

I personally have a Z30 wich is the best phone I've ever owned so far. As far as design of the new device goes, I'm looking forward to the Passeport !

Well, the Z30 is a sweet, sweet phone, and the one I would have wanted to get had it been offered during the original launch of the BB10 OS back in January, 2013.

But my Z10 has more than filled that gap. So the Z10 gets my vote. A simple, clean-cut,compact, sturdy, utilitarian design, created for usage and productivity, not eye-candy accompanied by useless bells and whistles that amount to no more than something you wipe your arse with.

Though I don't want to poo-poo on the Passport and Classic, after all it is in my interest as a BlackBerry customer, for these devices to be successful and for BlackBerry to manage a successful turnaround...I'm not too taken with either of them.

I want to see the next iteration of the Z10 or Z30. That's what I'm waiting for.

The Z10 and Z30 speak to me of a company on the move with an eye to the future! The Passport and Classic, say nothing but "much of the same"....

In my opinion the Q10 is the best designed smartphone sold to date. It truly is a work of industrial art. I own a 9900, and agree with some people it is also a very strong design, but as will happen overtime with the Q10, the 9900 is showining its age from a design perspective(and OS perspective). I can not wait to have a close up and hold in my hands the Classic...Anyone got spec's (size etc.) of the Classic? Would love to know so I could compare to the Q10 and 9900.

Z30 is a great phone. Heretic colleagues using other platforms are begrudgingly agreeing Ut us better. #bbrules

See I'm ticked, because all the major tech blogs are in the pocket of major manufacturers. Even when Blackberry does something right, or exceptional they always get shot down. I hope blackberry does get the respect and accolades it deserves, but I doubt it will get any press.

Triptastic!

After more than a year now, I must say my Q10 still looks slick as hell.

I don't know, I'm not sold on the passport. As for the Classic, I don't know if it'll be judged as "yeah, they've already done something like this".... although I would love a classic as an-between for my wife's bold and my q10.
