BlackBerry Z10 Awarded Telstra’s "Blue Tick" For Solid Rural Coverage

Telstra Mobiles with plans-000266

This is a nice boost for BlackBerry in Australia. Telstra awarded the BlackBerry Z10 their coveted “Blue Tick” which means it has passed their rigorous testing for rural coverage. As CrackBerrypoints out most of the BlackBerry Z10’s competition does not have the Blue Tick. That means the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3 are not rated well for their ability to hold a cell signal in rural areas. Before this the only approved Blue Tick BlackBerry devices were the BlackBerry Torch 9800 and 9810. On a side note Telstra also has a limited exclusive on the white BlackBerry Z10 until June.

  1. my personal phone is a z10 and this is great news. My work phone is a blackberry 9810 and it works great in rural areas. The office will only issue blackberrys to people who travel outside the city limits on a regular basis. In the city you can get iphones or androids. For the people with the choice, they will usually get an iphone or android to try them out but almost always go back to the blackberry because of the keyboard. The rest are good for toys, not for work.

  2. That’s good to know for lovers of nature :)
