We recently reported that AT&T would release the BlackBerry Z10 on March 15, 2013. However, this is not the case because the actual release date will be March 22. Thankfully AT&T customers will be able to pre-order the new BB10 smartphone from tomorrow with a price of $199.99, which as usual is for a two-year contract.
Those of you in the US who have been waiting to get their hands on the BlackBerry Z10 had to sit by while people in the UK and Canada got to enjoy the Z10 first, and while it was assumed that T-Mobile would be the first US carrier to get the handset, AT&T came along and beat them to it.
Having said that, if you are a T-Mobile business user then you are in luck because you can already get the Z10, although we have yet to learn when the consumer release date will be. We also know that Verizon plan to stock the first BlackBerry 10 smartphone, while Sprint currently has no plans to offer the handset to their customers.
AT&T’s high-end smatphone lineup is looking pretty decent now because they not only have the iPhone 5 and the upcoming Z10, but are very likely to get the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4.
Let us hope that AT&T staff does their best to promote the Z10 because it would be a shame for sales to be low because of the lack of effort on their part. It is no secret that BB10 and their relevant devices needs to be a success for BlackBerry, although UK sales have shown positive signs.
