Looking virtually identical to the its black and green predecessor, the Z10 carries instead the same coal-coloured casing, but now sports a stylish silver trim. The handset itself carries the same footprint as the first model at 109 x 15.5 x 16.5mm and weighs in at 115g. It carries good connectivity as well, with dual-mode UMTS, 3.6Mb/s HSDPA, and quad-band GSM/GPRS/Edge.

However, the most impressive features centre on film making, including 30 frames per second video capture, a storyboard editing application that allows the addition of soundtrack, commentary and visual effects, and a 3.2-megapixel camera with superfast burst mode that grabs three shots per second.
