BlackBerry Q10 Availability Confirmed

Over a month after the Z10 was launched to the market, BlackBerry has announced that its much-awaited BlackBerry Q10 will be available in Canada beginning May 1. The BlackBerry 10-powered, keypad-laden smartphone will also be available in the UK and US.

Giant carriers over at the Great White North–namely Rogers Wireless, Bell Mobility, and Telus–will all offer the new Q10, which subscribers can avail for $199 subsidized with a three-year contract. Canadians can also purchase the unlocked Q10 from retailers such as Future Shop and Walmart Canada.

But before Canada would even get their hands on the BlackBerry Q10, BlackBerry has stated that the folks over at the United Kingdom would get the Q10 at an earlier, unspecified date. American Crackberries, meanwhile, need not fret because they will have their time to purchase their own Q10 by the end of May for $249 with a two-year contract.

The BlackBerry Q10 is the second handset that runs on BlackBerry 10 mobile OS. Its QWERTY keypad, a remnant of previous BlackBerry handsets, sets the device apart from the touchscreen-equipped Z10. BlackBerry has stated that over 1 million Z10 handsets have been shipped worldwide, even posting increased revenue.

Will the excitement for the BB10 continue over the new BlackBerry Q10? We will find out soon.
