Nexus 5 now available at T-Mobile, BlackBerry Z30 at Verizon

T-Mobile has started selling the LG-made Google Nexus 5 today. This comes six days earlier than what a leak from the beginning of the month had us expecting. That’s certainly good news if you’re desperate to get your hands on a Nexus 5, especially now that the Google Play Store lists shipping times in weeks rather than days. So you might get the newest Nexus from T-Mobile for the sole purpose of getting it fast. You do...

BlackBerry Z30 finally gets a release date on Verizon: November 14

The BlackBerry Z30 was officially announced back in September, but only towards the end of last month did we hear anything about it from Verizon. Big Red boasted that it will exclusively sell the Z30 in the United States (though it’s still unclear whether that will be forever or just for a limited time), and gave us the pricing information. That said, when it came to spilling out an actual release date all the carrier managed to...

UK: BlackBerry Z10 now starts at £149.95 on PAYG, £179.95 SIM-free

The BlackBerry Z10 is now on offer in the UK for surprisingly affordable pricing, considering that less than a year ago it was the Canadian company’s flagship offering. But things move incredibly fast in the mobile world, and the Z30 has already been announced. Furthermore, BlackBerry the company is going through some very rough times, so perhaps the discounts aren’t that surprising after all. It’s Carphone...

BlackBerry Z30 will be a Verizon exclusive, out next month for $199.99

The BlackBerry Z30 is coming to the US. Maybe a bit later than you might have expected, but still, it’s on the way. Not only that, but it looks like Verizon has nabbed an exclusive on BlackBerry’s biggest ever smartphone. The carrier nicknamed Big Red has announced that it will start selling the Z30 sometime next month (though unfortunately without revealing an actual release date). The handset will be priced at $199.99...

No more BlackBerry smartphones in T-Mobile stores

BlackBerry, the Canadian smartphone maker formerly known as RIM, is in a lot of trouble. It’s been so for quite a while now, and it looks like it will soon be acquired by an insurance company and financial group for around $4.7 billion. That’s not a lot of money, but it means it will go private and may not disappear as soon as some have predicted. Still, things certainly aren’t good for the company. Sales of its...

BlackBerry Z30 announced with 5″ HD AMOLED screen, 1.7 GHz CPU, 8 MP camera. Available next week

After many months of leaks upon leaks (in most of which it starred as the A10), the BlackBerry Z30 has finally become official today. The new Z-series device from BlackBerry is once again all-touch, no keyboard (that’s what the Qs are for). It may or may not be the successor to the Z10 unveiled at the end of January (that may still be sold alongside the Z30, we assume). The BlackBerry Z30 has a 5-inch 720p Super AMOLED HD...

BlackBerry 9720 launching in the UK in September

Officially announced yesterday, the new BlackBerry 9720 will be released in the UK starting September. At least that’s what Carphone Warehouse is showing here. Carphone doesn’t mention how much the 9720 will cost, but other British retailers do.
