Major cellular carriers like Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile have confirmed that they will be carrying the BlackBerry Q10 coming summer. The BlackBerry Z10 is one of the competitive smartphones out there. However, for keyboard lovers, the BlackBerry Q10 will be an impressive piece of hardware.
On T-Mobile, the Q10 will be available for the users in the month of June. Even though T-Mobile has recently started offering 4G LTE connectivity, you will be able to enjoy high speed connectivity on your new Q10 with T-Mobile. General customers of T-Mobile can avail the device in June whereas customers from the business sector can place an order for purchasing the Q10 today. You can expect the device to reach you within a week. Business users can avail the phone at $119.99. For general users, the price has been kept at $99.99 along with twenty-four monthly payments of $20. You can purchase the device without contract for $579.99.
Sprint has also gone ahead to offer the BB Q10 to its users. However, they had announced that the device will be available for sale through a press release today morning. BlackBerry has not provided any more information than that. Sprint plans to offer the BlackBerry Q10 in the late summer and when the date nears that is the time Sprint chooses to reveal more information on pricing and availability.
Verizon has decided to launch a dedicated version of the BB Q10 in the month of June. Verizon will be launching an exclusive white colored BB Q10. Verizon will also sell black colored Q10 as well. Like T-Mobile, even Verizon will allow the BlackBerry Q10 users to connect the web through 4G LTE connectivity. Like Sprint, Verizon is not revealing much on details of the launching of the device and it’s pricing. Before the release date nears, Verizon will allow potential customers to place preorders in the forthcoming weeks. You will be able to purchase the device online and also through Verizon Wireless stores in June.
When the BlackBerry Q10 was launched, AT&T Mobility also promised to carry the BB Q10. Sadly, there is no recent update from AT&T which means AT&T may be offering the Q10 on sale in June. However, we feel that the AT&T will be offering Q10 around the same timeframe to stay in competition with T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon.
The BlackBerry Q10 appears to be a promising device. The appeal of the device is quite interesting and good. It has got a large 3.1inch AMOLED touchscreen (720 x 720 pixels) and BlackBerry users will be able to enjoy the usage of full QWERTY keyboard on the Q10. The phone runs on the latest operating system i.e. BlackBerry Q10. You can connect to the web through 4G LTE network connectivity and enjoy HD voice. Other features of the BlackBerry Q10 include BBM app, 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, 8MP camera which supports 1080p video recording, 2MP camera at the front that supports 720p video quality, 16GB internal storage and 2GB RAM.
