If you visited the Carphone Warehouse website earlier today you would have noticed something very interesting, and that was details on a premature UK release of the BlackBerry Q10. We had assumed that the next BB10 handset was not going to make an appearance on UK carriers until April, but the retailer suggested that it would be this month instead.
However, a source has been in contact with BlackBerry and it seems this was a blunder on the Carphone Warehouse’s part and will still see an April release. If you are in the US then you will need to wait until May to get your hands on the Q10, as they still have yet to see the release of the Z10. Although we do know they will receive it later this month, unless you are a T-Mobile business user becasue you can get the handset now.
Going back to the UK release of the BlackBerry Q10, networks have yet to reveal pricing and a specific release date, but we should not have much longer to wait. Well, it would be silly to make us wait much longer considering the fact that BlackBerry need the Q10 to do very well.
Then again the Q10 is expected to cost around the same as its sibling, the Z10, which is £500 without a SIM or a minimum £35 per month contract. Just as a reminder the Q10 comes with a 3.1-inch touchscreen and traditional BlackBerry keyboard making it ideal for business users. There’s also a 1.5GHz processor, 16GB of storage with the option to expand thanks to microSD support and an an 8-megapxiel rear-facing camera.
