Just enter the full string above as the user agent (box 2) - the other fields are optional.

That will work, you can use it to set a custom UA - doesn't need to be one of the precanned ones. You can also use skyfire or any third party browser - I believe most support it.

Or just buy a BlackBerry. The Z10 is definitely better than any existing smartphone.

The fact that you actually have a Z10 is the bad news...

Poor BlackBerry. They're losing so much money as it is and now they'll have to pay for thousands of non-blackberry users taking advantage of their promotion...
