Blackberry 10 Launch Party Malaysia

I was lucky to be one of the first few blackberry fans to be invited for the Blackberry 10 Launch Party last friday.

Invitations all thanks to Blackberry Malaysia Community

The Blackberry 10 Launch Party was held at Hugo on 6, Best Western Premier Dua Sentral.

I just love the choice of the venue for the party because the place is beautiful.

Hugo on 6 is located on the 6th floor where we are able to enjoy the stunning night view of our Kuala Lumpur City and a swimming pool to compliment along with the scenery.

The event started with a speech from Mr. Chris Jones,the marketing manager of blackberry Malaysia. He started by thanking the fans for coming and gave a short introduction of the new Blackberry Z 10 device.

After the introduction,we were divided into groups to experience the live demo conducted by the Blackberry PowerFans. The teams are divided according to the colour of our sticker given in our goodie bag.

Olivia and I were in team Orange and for Team Orange live demo is conducted  by our Blackberry Powerfan, Mr Kong Khai Chen.

Mr Kong showed us a detailed demonstration step by step while explaining the unique features of what the new Blackberry Z 10 has been there for us.

Blackberry Z 10 is an all touch smartphone powered by Blackberry 10 operating system.

When using the Blackberry Z 10 , it is all about the touching gestures. There is no home buttons like the androids or Iphones. For example, just swipe upwards from the bottom of the screen to go home page, if you want to check your notification just swipe upwards and hold.

The Blackberry Hub
The Blackberry 10  comes with a function called the blackberry hub which displays all your notifications in one screen.  Notifications like the Facebook , twitter, IM, sms, e-mail and etc.

The Blackberry 10 Software Keyboard

It is an intelligent keyboard which adapts on how and where you type the letters and it is also able to predict the next vocabulary that you going to type/use. The predicted word will appear above on a letter and if you want to use it, you just swipe it up.
It's multilingual too!

The Time Shift Camera

Love this feature!! Usually when I look for a phone, the camera functionality/specification my no.2 in the "What to have" List. This is something new to me and I also think this is the best feature that the Blackberry Z 10 has. The time shift camera allows you to pick the "best face" or "best moment" that you want within secs without the picture being blur  when you take a picture.  It is quite similar to the Samsung Best Face Application but I personally prefer this because its faster and more flexible for me to use. All I need to do is to swipe around the circle to choose the captured moment that I want. It's perfect for SELCA!

After the live demo of the Blackberry Z 10 device. The Blackberry Team Malaysia has prepared some exciting games to hype up the night .

I did not manage to snap the process of the game because it was a scavenger hunt. Teams were running around to compete with each other by looking for the hidden clues and finish the task written in the clues within at the fastest time to get the next clue. The winning team that night was Team White.

The next following game was a blackberry 10 quiz whereby teams who did not managed to win the scavenger hunt were asked to try their luck again for this round to win the prizes!

And that wraps up the event the night.
