Following a bevy of rumors surrounding the Z10, Blackberry has finally made an official announcement regarding the first full-touch BlackBerry 10 device. Outfitted with a palm-friendly 4.2-inch 1,280 x 768 display, the Z10 measures in at 5.13 x 2.6 x 0.37 inches – making it significantly bulkier than the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S III. Beneath its mixture of aluminum and hard, textured plastic lies a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus buffered by 2GB RAM, a removable 1,800mAh battery, slots for microSD (up to 32GB supported) and micro SIM. On the imaging front, the handset packs a 2-megapixel front facer (720p video) and 8-megapixel rear shooter capable of 1080p recording. Finally, the Z10 will also ship LTE-ready (for AT&T, Verizon and Sprint) and be available in carrier-branded models across the top four US operators for $200 USD.
The impressive announcements trickling out of SIHH 2012 from Panerai continue with their announcement of an all-ceramic rendition of the classic Luminor 1950 case. A natural choice for a virtually scratch-proof and super-rugged timepiece, ceramic isn’t entirely foreign to higher luxury tiers of horology. However, most unique about the matte black Panerai PAM 438 Tuttonero GMT is the inclusion of a matching ceramic bracelet. The brushed, 44mm casing is water resistant to 300 meters, and houses Panerai’s superlative in-house P.9001/B 29-jewel automatic movement (where the ‘B’ delineates the matte black galvanized version of their P.9001 movement) with an impressive power reserve of 72 hours and all the standard timing features. Expected to retail for $11,450 USD, the Panerai PAM 438 Tuttonero GMT should be available this fall. (SOURCE)
