Just a couple of days after the BlackBerry Z30 was announced in Malaysia the new flagship BlackBerry 10 device has made its way into our hands - and what a beauty it is. We are going to have a ton of Z30 content coming up over the next few days, weeks and months, so keep your eyes peeled. As you will see in the video - the unit I was sent looks very much like a retail one, although there are a couple of goodies in the box. We'll have to wait and see if those come as standard or not. 

As well as us getting a new BlackBerry - the Z30 is the first to launch with BlackBerry 10.2 which brings us some nice OS improvements. All the other BlackBerry 10 handsets will get 10.2 in October, but if you're itching to go hands on with it sooner the Z30 will be your only option, unless you have loaded up a leaked version. 

I'm going to keep this post short and sweet - it's all about the video, but like always we will have a full review coming up in the very near future as well as a bunch of 'how to' posts if you're picking up the Z30 as your first BlackBerry 10 device.
