Limited Edition blue BlackBerry Z10 makes appearance

Red's nice and all, but blue looks great too...

Blue BlackBerry Z10

While developers are getting red limited edition BlackBerry Z10 devices for their work on the app front, it looks like creative influencers are being treated to limited edition blue models.

Lil'E, the hip hop artist that has branded himself as Mr. BlackBerry 10 over his last few songs, has posted a picture of a blue Z10 on Twitter and Instagram. Though it could be a well-done aftermarket paint job, it looks like this Z10 is fresh out of the box.

We're still poking around for details on who BlackBerry is giving these ones out to and where Lil'E got his, but we'll be sure to keep you posted. 

Does the blue Z10 catch your eye more than the red one? Or do you prefer the retail black or white models instead?

said it once. Ill say it again. BLACKBERRY NEEDS to market multiple AWESOME colors for new consumers and existing Blackberry fans. DEVS deserve it just as much as the consumers who purchases Blackberry phones, accessories, etc.

This would help BLACKBERRY'S market better too, as they have now completely hopped on board with touchscreen/multi task cell phones. GOLD, RED, LASER BLUE. colors would be awesome.. This would blow APPLE out of context. Who cares about the basic black and white colors. Everyone has them...Provide more colors so consumers can choose there personal color and stand out. The above colors I like...I'm sure they can provide more. Just sayin' :)

Personally Ive always wanted a Bronze colored cell phone. I would paint my cell I just dont want to damage it. Oh btw someone is selling a RED Limited Z10 for $2100! wtf! Do you see what I mean why BB should release more colors? Or DEVS will sell phones for $2000! just because they recieved 2 of the same thing! yeah right! That aint fair!

I felt the same way too. BlackBerry needs to get Se limited edition colors out. If you think about it, that's what got apple mainstream attention was when they intro the colored MACS with the clear casing. I love bronze but I gotta admit I never thought about a cell in that color.

The limited edition ish might drive hype but for me personally, I live for the colour blue.Even though I prefer electronics in black, the colour blue would overshadow that.

I wonder how much people would pay for aftermarket paint jobs on their Z10s?

I LOVE this blue one! Looks better than the red imo.

that blue does look slick

Reminds me of the Nextel days when it was possible to get the after market cases and change them out your self. I used to have the i95 with the transparent case..

My first blackberry was a 6230, the only color option was blue. I really like my z10 but would love it in blue!

"Blueberry", I like that....I'll rock the hell out of that.

Supa_Fly1

Blueberry is pure old school; having a Q10 Blueberry would have such a significant nostalgia it would send ripples across the net.

I actually prefer my black one. The the battery cover feels great and I don't see myself having to replace it due to fading paint

Man. Who knew colour could invoke such powerful reactions? Oh wait... I'm sure the marketing peeps and designers knew that.

I'd be more than happy to sport a blue Z10.

I'll be honest, I want a Q10 bad, but I would most certainly jump at the chance for a Blue Z10. That looks SWEET!

Wilkerson4492

Loogs segzy...I want a blue one, a red one, and a white one to keep my black one company...and because I'm a greedy SOB!

Come on Blackberry make the Red and Blue Z10 available to us regular bb users. Hell I am on AT&T and I only get one choice.

JoBudden

My favorite color!!!!!

Francis Pavolko

Black is still my favorite. Good thing to because it was my only option at ATT.

Gregory Ryan

So the blue PlayBook never made it out, but we get a blue Z10?

spencerdl

NICE, Very NICE. I like the BLUE one better than the RED, but not better than the WHITE

Caulibeam

hell yea that beats the red one anyday

yusofat

I had the 8830 Curve in that blazing orange color. I'd love to see the Z10 released in that color. I bleed orange. Hook 'em!

But the blue is nice. I'd take that one or the white over the black. But when push comes to shove, any Z or Q 10 in my hands will be ok. I just need my IT dept to get on board before I can upgrade. I'd really love to se a slider BB10 device.

natural_hero

I would've taken blue over my white one, hands-down.

ferada

Looks nice but nothing beats the "Black"Berry Z10 I'm rocking! Go BlackBerry!

As long as they didn't pick an ugly shade, I think Green would be awesome. Jade or sage would be just fine.

Blue is cool, but I wish I could get a red one. Since I have zero development skills, looks I'll be getting a black since that is the only one AT&T has.

Pixstar

Looks cool. I hear blue consumes more battery power...and once you go black, you never go back ;-)

Again why not offer the Z10 in different colors to set yourself apart from the other manufacturers and not to just populist royalty only? Maybe from market research choose up to five colors for consumers to select from and lead the pack with design, look, and feel.

I like a " Few" colour choices and blue is good

My first BlackBerry was a "blue 'berry." Looks cool. I would have strongly considered it versus my black one if it had been offered, but black probably would have won out for business reasons.

John Pawling

Red and white and black colors are great ;) but blue is needed to compliment this fantastic North American phone!

Blue is so unexpected!

eragle

I think a black/blue combo would be cool.

Baconwich

This is pretty neat, but the red Z10 is pretty much the nicest looking phone I've ever seen. Wish they'd make it available to the general public, somehow. =\

FuzzyFish

Wow, this looks absolutely amazing! Easily the best looking Z10 so far! Really really want this.

kevinduncan1983

I have a good idea Blackberry!!!
Hook me up with a blue z10 and I'll tattoo the BlackBerry symbol on me. Then I'll instagram and tweet The "F" out of it to my13 followers.....

I would love the red...or the blue. Rocking white right now with a transform case since there were no cool cases when I got mine on February 5.

I want anything that will make people ask what phone I have so I can tell them about my z!

Go with microfiber pocket pouch red one, it looks awesome with white z10. I have this combo, and boy people can't stop looking at it. White z10 with red pouch (BB original) .

Ok... what the heck! I have my WhiteBerry and I love it. I seen some pictures of the red LE Z10 and I ended up ordering a red phantom skin to make it a RedBerry. NOW I see the BLUE!!! I want the BlueBerry as well. Looks like I am putting in another order. Looks fantastic, but of course, no matter what color the outside it, we all know what is underneath. ;-)

Omg, they all look nice!

Could be like when apple released the imac, such a simple thing as adding a bit of color to a new device could be that all important difference.

It has more of an impact because they wouldn't simply be offering new colors on an old device.

I'd say continue building the hype and then release it soon and market the hell out of it.

I think more colors should be available to the general public! I hate that I didn't have the choice with my carrier :( I haven't had a colored one since my 8320!!! I would love a blue one or pink hot or breast cancer color one, purple or lime green.

I personally like the red one better! Would look crazy with my red transform shell case!! Maybe BlackBerry should at least release a blue transform shell case, seems to be a popular color. For now I have the black Z10 from att w my red transform case.

I say is the white one with blue anodizing and blue paint.

BlackBerry should make a Z10 in leather, they used to be known for having such executive devices with leather backing, I'd love to see a newly engineered Z10 device with leather finish that would be really amazing! :)

Looks amazing! This one and the red one make me want to go Z10 instead of Q10. A pity they aren't available to the general public.

Wrong color i think...they need to to with the Gold!!! Ppl love that.

Prefer the blue to the red but orange with black screen would rule!

Black looks very plain and difficult to differentiate from the rest. White looks okay, but just not 'BlackBerry'. Plus the black screen against white just doesn't do it for me. But Red or Blue??? OMG I want those choices! That blue one in the picture looks hot, but if I could buy either one, I'd get the red. It's too bad I would have to have been a developer in order to get it. It's a sweet prize, but man... let the masses have red! Let the developers have... IDK GOLD CHROME, like it's an effing Zelda cartridge or something.

blue looks awesome.. i like better than the red, but unless these become widely available in the next month I'm still going black.

and what in the world phone these days has that bad a picture quality? that's like worst than my first curve...

BionicKris

There's a thread in the forums of a red Z10 someone wrapped from PhantomSkinz.com. They have some good quality pics of it posted and it looks just like the dev limited edition Z10s. I was surprised at the quality of the wrap. On the PhantomSkinz.com site choose phones and go down to BlackBerry Z10 Chromatics and the page with the colors shows what the phone would look like wrapped when you click on it. There are a lot of colors posted that people have mentioned that they would like to see here in these posts. Check out the pics.
