Earlier today we reported that AT&T had started taking pre-orders for BlackBerry Q10, a device that its offering for $200. Verizon has announced today that BlackBerry’s latest QWERTY keyboard touting device will be available in stores from 10th June. However the Big Red is currently accepting pre-orders for Q10. Its offering the device for the same price upfront that AT&T is charging, that’s $200 along with a two year contract which binds you to that particular carrier.
The BlackBerry Q10 will be available from all major U.S. carriers, these include AT&T, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile and Sprint. T-Mobile is offering the device for $99.99 with a condition that the subscriber pay 24 equal monthly payments of $20. It remains to be seen how much Sprint charges upfront for the Q10. Verizon has a slight advantage over its rivals. It is the only carrier Stateside that is going to offer BlackBerry Q10 in white as well, along side the black one. The BlackBerry Q10 has reportedly been selling faster than HTC One and iPhone 5 in France, while consumer interest of that level can’t be predicted as yet for U.S. market, it does look like the ailing Canadian manufacturer is catching a break with this device. So, who’s getting one?
