The first smartphone to run the all-new BlackBerry 10 operating system will make its debut at Verizon on March 28, so six days later than at AT&T. Pre-orders will start at Big Red tomorrow morning at 8 am ET over at this website. In contrast, AT&T is already taking pre-orders for its version of the Z10.
You’ll be able to order (or pre-order) one from Verizon for $199.99 with a new two-year contract. That’s the exact same amount that AT&T is asking for, and the price point is to be expected considering that it is the standard for high-end handsets at US-based carriers.
The white BlackBerry Z10 will be exclusive to Verizon in the US, and the carrier will also offer the non-exclusive black hue.
The BlackBerry Z10 has a 4.2-inch 1,280×768 touchscreen, an 8 MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash and 1080p Full HD video recording, a 2 MP front camera with 720p HD video recording, a dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, all the usual connectivity options (including LTE), and a 1,800 mAh battery.
