Unlocked BlackBerry Z10 expected to arrive in the UK in March

While the brand new BlackBerry Z10 is already available in the UK, you can’t buy it SIM-free. EE, O2 and Vodafone are all offering the handset either on contract, or with their own PAYG SIM cards.

So, if you’re looking to get an unlocked Z10 in the UK, it appears that you’ll have to wait more than a month to do it.

Both Clove and Handtec, two major British online retailers, are saying they’re expecting to stock SIM-free BlackBerry Z10 units starting March. Clove mentions “early Mach”, while Handtec lists March 15 as a possible delivery date. The handset’s price is £534 (€623 or $846). If you’re interested, you can pre-order the Z10 here at Clove, or here at Handtec.
