With Sprint completely out of contention and Verizon expected to come late to BlackBerry Z10’s American launch party, the race for the first US carrier to sell the phone is on between AT&T and T-Mobile.
“Magenta” seemed to have an early edge after a past leak, but AT&T is back in the game, based on a newly revealed story. According to “two sources” close to the carrier, quoted by Phone Arena, Ma Bell will start Z10 shipments on March 22.
Of course, the report has to be taken with a pinch of salt as it hasn’t been confirmed with AT&T, but we sense the 22nd is going to be very close to the real launch date. Call it a hunch or a guesstimate, but BB has to do something while the hype is still at decent levels.
As far as pricing goes, we don’t expect any surprises. All three carriers should put the Z10 on sale for $200 with contracts and $600 outright. Any takers?
