Born in the USA –Moto X Review – #VZWBuzz

motox-open-cam

With all the unemployment in the U.S. (and being the Founder of NJ Unemployed) I am thrilled every time I hear that products are being manufactured in the U.S. That means jobs!

So when I found out that the Moto X was the first ever MADE in the USA device I was beyond happy. Happy because that means that it put a number of Americans to work, many of whom may have been out of work previously.

If you are a Verizon customer and need to upgrade your phone… this is for you. If you are not a Verizon customer… well what are you waiting for? Get on it already!

The BlackBerry is Back!

bb_q10_sub_s2_apps

 

As you all know the BlackBerry is back and better before.

I recently wrote a post about the Z10 which I loved. Check out my post HERE

As for the Q10, it has similar characteristics to that of the Z10. Here are some of my favorite features.

 

  • The keys are tighter and closer than before with Q10.
  •  You can post a tweet or Facebook status directly from your Hub. Type “tw” or “fb” and your message from the Hub and it will connect.
  • When you search for Tim your friend it gives you their contact info and you can click updates and it will search for info regarding that person.
  • How about the incredible battery life! The Q10 has a removable very large battery very large battery. The larger battery makes for a longer lasting experience.
  • I found this incredibly interesting…. instead of a white background they made it a black background this actually helps the battery life! Who knew?
  • You can video chat with the BBM!
  • You can share what’s on your phone/desktop.

Blackberry combines personal and work. You no longer need to carry multiple devices, plus you are able to still separate them both with one simple device. Amazing!

The BlackBerry Z10

I’m gonna brag for a sec… as you know I’m a Verizon Wireless Lifestyle Blogger, and with that comes lots of perks, products and hanging out with some cool peeps.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you know that the BlackBerry Z10 launched in March. I had the opportunity to meet up with fellow ambassadors last month to learn all about the new BlackBerry Z10 and guess what? Oh yeah I got one too.

Thursday night we all had an amazing dinner at Café Un Deux Trois  followed by cocktails at the Paramount Hotel (where we stayed).

Friday we spent the day at a Verizon store in NYC learning all about the company, new products and more. That was when I received the new BlackBerry Z10.

Ok so here’s the scoop. I love my iPhone, but I have to tell you that this phone kind of reminded me of it with how user friendly it is.

I have 2 fave features. One is the fact that I can create a document (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) and send it in a variety of ways (via text, email, etc.). I think this is a great feature for business owners especially.

The second feature I love is the Share Your Story feature. With this feature you can take photos and then upload them into this app and make it a movie, complete with background music. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this feature. Perfect for vacations, if you’re on the go, anything and super easy to use. All you have to do is upload the photos, give it a title, pick background music and then you can upload it to your social media networks, email it, post to YouTube, anything. Did I mention I love it?

Ok, so I’m kinda bad at taking photos, but I did take a few during my NYC Verizon trip and I uploaded them in to the Share Your Story feature.

Seriously how cool is this?

 

If you are a photo junkie or business owner you seriously need this phone. There are so many cool things you can do with it. What are you waiting for? Check out the BlackBerry Z10 HERE site to learn more.
