People in Canada have been waiting for the official release date of the BlackBerry Q10, as this handset looks set to be far more popular than the Z10, which is the first smartphone to run BlackBerry 10. Well thankfully you do not have too long to wait, well if you can believe the latest rumor.
The BlackBerry Q10 release date in Canada looks set to be on April 30, 2013, and will give consumers and business users the chance to try out the physical QWERTY keyboard that has made Blackberry so popular over the years.
As for the BlackBerry Q10 price in Canada, it should cost $200, but on a 3-year contract on Rogers. We are still waiting for Rogers to confirm this, as the details we have for you so far was from a leaked internal document from the Canadian carrier, which was received by Mobile Syrup.
If this release date for the BlackBerry Q10 is correct, then we can imagine many of you will be counting down the days, because while the Z10 is considered a decent BB10 device, BlackBerry always struggles when it comes to touchscreen devices, and so they can only hope that sales of the Q10 will be very positive.
Sales of the Z10 have been decent in the UK, which was the first country to get the handset, but this success has not translated as well in Canada, although the Z10 is not considered a failure by any means.
As an added benefit, when the Q10 is released in Canada, those who will be buying the handset will get the added benefit of the Blackberry 10.1 OS update, which adds several new functions that the Z10 does not have.
