You might have to wait!!! If you are Old-school BlackBerry users in the United States, we’re sorry to say, QWERTY-equipped BlackBerry Q10 smartphone may only become available in in May or even June. Good things come to those who wait.
Elsewhere in the world, the 3.1-inch screen, keyboarded Q10 smartphone is going to arrive starting in April. At the end of last month, BlackBerry unveiled two handsets that will be running it: the BlackBerry Z10 and the BlackBerry Q10.
Sprint, Verizon Wireless, and AT&T already announced plans to carry the phone; T-Mobile has only said it will offer the Z10.
Amidst various reports, BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins said that the U.S. launch of the company’s new Q10, the BlackBerry 10 smartphone with a keyboard, may not come until eight to 10 weeks after the U.S. launch of the company’s touchscreen Z10, which is expected by mid-March.
“We need to respect that,” Heins told the AP. “Am I a bit disappointed? Yeah, I would be lying saying no. But it is what it is, and we’re working with all our carrier partners to speed it up as much as we can.”
“We expect the first global carriers to launch the BlackBerry Q10 in April,” BlackBerry spokeswoman Amy McDowell told AllThingsD. “We will announce new pricing and availability information as carriers roll out around the world. We are working closely with our carrier partners to accelerate their testing process, but cannot offer any specifics on U.S. availability.”
