BlackBerry Q10 Release Date Rumored for April 22
Mar 23, 2013
BlackBerry Q10, the second smartphone running on the latest BB10 OS, can already be pre-ordered in the United Kingdom.
Following the huge success of the BlackBerry Z10 on the British market, a second device with the same OS is about to hit the shelves. The Q10 features BlackBerry’s classic QWERTY keyboard and is powered by the same BB10 OS.
The pre-order pricing for the BlackBerry Q10 mobile casino gambling tool start at GBP 530 and range all the way up to GBP 610 depending on the retailer. The smartphone is expected to start shipping in late April, some outlets even put April 22 as the release date, however, that is yet unconfirmed.
The Z10 BlackBerry casino device will go on sale in the United States today, but there are also some American online retailers already offering the Q10 for pre-ordering. Previous rumors suggested a $600-620 price range for the Q10, but pre-orders start at $880. Naturally, we’ll have to wait until the official release date for the USA is announced, before we’ll learn the real pricing policy.
The BB10 OS is regarded as BlackBerry’s last chance to get back on the smartphone market horse, and so far it has proven to be a popular system. If American sales will match those of the UK, BlackBerry could be out of the woods.
