One by one, America’s leading wireless service providers have confirmed they will be carrying BlackBerry’s Q10 starting next month, but the specifics are still somewhat in a haze. We know AT&T, Sprint and Verizon will be selling the thing for $250 with contracts, but that’s about it.
The exact release dates are yet to be announced, as is T-Mobile’s off-contract pricing. But, if it helps you sleep better at nights, know that T-Mo will be opening Q10 registrations on April 29. Only business customers will be able to register and find out new info on the phone’s release at that date, while general customers will likely have to wait a while longer.
If you ask us, we think it won’t be long until Magenta will open pre-orders, while the actual launch should happen at some point in the second half of May. That’s just a guess, but we feel pretty good about it, given Canadians will be receiving the Q10 come May 1.
A little update for our UK readers too, as Selfridges is officially the first online retailer in the country to accept BB Q10 pre-orders. In fact, it appears Selfridges will have exclusivity selling the device for a few days, between April 26 and 30. The price point on the other hand is not that encouraging – £579.99 outright, or $886.
