With the recent release of the BlackBerry Z10 in the U.S., the only other BlackBerry 10 device that is waiting to be released is the BlackBerry Q10. If you’ve been holding out for BlackBerry’s first physical-keyboard equipped BlackBerry 10 device, you might have had to do your shopping in the U.K. as that’s where we spotted the BlackBerry Q10 was available for pre-order. But if you would rather spend your hard-earned money in North America, it looks like you’ll be able to pick up the Q10 from Canada.
The BlackBerry Q10 will be available on Rogers, which is Canada’s largest mobile carrier, for C$199.99 (or $197 USD) when customers sign up for a three-year contract. There’s no word as to when the Q10 will be available for sale in Canada, but Rogers said it would be arriving in the “coming weeks.”
The BlackBerry Z10 followed a similar route when it was starting to be made available around the world, which you should know didn’t officially release in the U.S. two months after its U.K. debut. Considering the Q10 is expected to release in the U.K. at the end of April, then if the phone really does follow the same route, we should expect a U.S. release in late June.
