Foxconn built BlackBerry "Jakarta" gets Bluetooth SIG certified

Although it's hardly as exciting as a hands-on look or some never before seen images, it looks as though the first Foxconn built BlackBerry 10 device has now landed at the Bluetooth SIG and has been fully certified. The SIG documents note the device as supporting BlackBerry OS 10.2 but that'll likely change to 10.2.1 upon release. 

The device is bearing the familiar model numbering STJ100-1 rather than the more commonly referred to name, Jakarta, and also received a certification in Indonesia through Postel. If previous comments from Terry Gou, chairman of Taiwan's Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. pan out, we could get up close and personal with this one at MWC.

Excited to see it but hanging on to get a new qwerty model.

After the Z10 experience I want nothing to do with the Qwerty model. I hope they release a super upgraded touch screen device soon.

Z10 is by far an incredible touch screen experience.

Z30 rocked in 2013, and it will continue to rock hard in 2014. And hoping for a Z50 for late 2014 to early 2015 at the latest. In the meantime, I will continue to rock the best smart phone in the industry, the Z30.

Exactly. If you ain't tried it - you just don't know...

If blackberry can produce a note 3 like device with a S-PEN,people will buy it.

That would be a tablet...a big, ugly tablet that is too small for a tablet, too damn big for a phone.
But, yeah, people probably would buy it...

Think you mean it would be a "phablet".

People are followers. They will buy what ever the masses buy. The true leaders have never left BlackBerry. So if they build the phablet, people will buy it.

I´LL VOTE TO THAT TOO !!!!! love my touch screen tooooo much!!!!! would´nt go back to qwerty ....

harshadpatel

I agree. We need a super upgraded touch device soon.

xtremesniper

I upgraded from a Z10 to a Z30. It IS a super upgrade. It's not just a bigger screen. The Z30 is a device fit for a king.

Hopefully it's priced right

Atleast it's happened fast. Maybe Blackberry can FINALLY produce phones on time and with the pace of the industry. Both model numbers and specs.

For example it's a year later and not even a rumer of a replacement for the Z10. You'd think it would get redone with better specs and an edge to edge screen atleast

thurask

How would bezel gestures work with an edge to edge screen?

dannyd86

I dunno but my nexus 5 has edge gestures within apps with an edge to edge screen. Gmail, facebook etc. All android apps are moving towards a side menu accessed by a swipe from the left, right at the edge

eddy_berry

Those are just apps. In BB10 OS entire navigation is gesture based. A bezel is necessary.

Posted via CB10

dannyd86

Theres really no difference. Android gmail for example. From one spot you can swipe to the left and archive an email, 1mm over and you can do the same swipe to bring out a menu. Tap the same spot and it selects an email. I had a Z10 for 6 months, I know the gestures and my bet is its totally possible to do them all from within the screen without interfering with something else. Or at the very least reduce the size of bezel way down to 2mm or so

You could keep the bottom bezel the same, which is the most important BB10 gesture spot. The swipe up. Swipe down to bring out a menu would hardly be effected by eliminating it but theres always room up top because of cameras and such anyways so that could stay the same. Its the side bezels that look like shit

Xandrex_BSCF

The bezel is not necessary. The proof is that with a Bluetooth mouse on a PlayBook you can swipe without any issue. The point is to start at the edge of the screen, nothing more.

Yes this needs to be priced lower than BlackBerry probably wants to price it at. I wondering what BlackBerry plans on doing with all the left over Z and Q phones that haven't sold? Lower the prices and get them out there for people to buy and make something from them.

Even better give a Z30 to all playbook owners that were promised BB10, I'd settle for a Z10. Do you want my address?

Smartphone, Touch, Jakarta, 100-1. Wonder if there is any need for a 100-2 or more.

Nice, hope we get Smartphone, Qwerty, Sooper-dooper soon.

i don't think it has a 4G capability...

STJ100-1, great. That won't cause any confusion. Definitely Jakarta.

Now we can spam the world with BB10 phones, under $200 makes it a great gift for the less demanding smartphone users. It's BB10 after all.

No 4G, but that's still too expensive here in Australia anyway, if you can get unlimited 3G+ for way less.

Yep in Germany, too

Great! Now wheres the certification for the "Q30" that apparently is also going to be revealed next month?

Prem WatsApp

Just asking the same above. Everyone's on fire today.

Going off of that Bluetooth SIG page, I have a feeling that BB gave whatever designs they had for Cafe to Foxconn and said "Here, build this for cheap."

The BT module is apparently the same one in Kopi/Cafe (Qualcomm WCN3660/WCN3680), while the processor is probably a Qualcomm MSM8930 series (also the same as Kopi/Cafe).

stackberry369

The next blackberry needs at least the snapdragon 800 processor.

But this is supposed to be the cheap one.

Nazmi Saifee

A lot will depend on marketing the BBOS and not just the phone hardware. For Me, the standout feature of the BlackBerry phones is the OS. I sure hope they get it right this time.

Would like to see it emerge in my market. Jakarta is only a short swim away from Australia.

@prem ,If they make it waterproof that would be amazing.LOL

1. cool.
2. i hope they limit they're future device variations. one phone to rule them. -1,-2,-3,-4,-5. just ONE. (please).
3. who be ricky chen?

eddy_berry

They would do well putting cheaper BB10 phones like Jakarta out in NA market. They did it with the Q5, eventually bringing it into NA, but it wasn't really that cheap and not many people were looking for cheap physical keyboards. It should have been cheaper. I hope Jakarta, or a similar device, becomes an entry level contender in NA soon.

When it comes to the new BB10 devices, the price has to be king in order to sell them. The right price and people will flock to them.

musclevnl780

This cheap all touch screen phone, will get the younger crowd. All I want is a Q10 with a 3.5 inch screen, don't forget the “Glass Weave”

Paid $600.00 dollars for my Q10, would pay that and more for a 3.5 inch screen Q10

Bring on a powerful top notch, beautifully designed 5" touchscreen phone with a 9 or 10" dummy tablet linked to it that is, slim, elegant, fast and high high resolution ................ that´s all i ask for!!!!!

Is it tooooo much to ask?????????????

Rocking a Z10 on MEO in Portugal!!!!!

Most probably will be named Z5, as the price is low and the Q5 already exists, seems logical to me.

If BlackBerry is clever they make it Dual-Sim

huungryshark

Dual Sim and it will be selling great. Even I would try to get one. Some people hate running around with two phones, don't know why blackberry not have a single Dual SIM phone.

New Z5 with dual sim support and fm radio for 150-200 dollars and they have a winner sure with 10.2.1.

C0038297E Quote of the Day (BBM Channel)

John Timothy

If Foxconn is producing this phone you can bet it will a competitively priced. They made a statement the other day that they intend to double their revenue in the next ten years. So they will want to make sure whatever they produce is going to sell! They have the capacity to make phones very cost effective! So all the naysayers beware ( I'm referring to people who short BB stock) BB10 phones produced by Foxconn will sell very aggressively!
