While it’s well-known that all major US mobile carriers will offer at least one new BlackBerry smartphone pretty soon, official release dates haven’t been announced until now.
Engadget has managed to obtain a statement from T-Mobile, which said the Z10 would cost $249.99 on contract.
Verizon and AT&T are expected to introduce the Z10 later this month, too. It remains to be seen if they’re going to price it as T-Mobile did.
The Z10 (pictured below) runs the brand new BlackBerry OS 10, and is the Canadian company’s first smartphone to sport an HD display (1280 x 768 pixels, 4.2 inches). Other than that, the device features LTE connectivity, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, 8MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, 2MP front-facing camera, dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Plus processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 1,800 mAh battery.
As for BlackBerry’s other new handset, the QWERTY equipped Q10, N4BB has it that T-Mobile is planning to release it starting May. Like the Z10, the Q10 might cost more than $200 on contract. We’ll bring more details on this soon.
