A screenshot, allegedly of the internal database at Carphone Warehouse, shows that the retailer plans on charging £480 for an unlocked BlackBerry Z10
in white. Earlier rumors revealed that in the U.S., the phone will sell with a carrier subsidy for less than the usual $199.99
. The next lowest price point is usually $149.99. At the long awaited RIM press event on Wednesday to announce BlackBerry 10, it is believed that both the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 and the physical QWERTY packin' BlackBerry X10 will be unveiled.
A video that we showed you last week comparing the BlackBerry Z10 to the Apple iPhone 5
revealed that BlackBerry 10 will come with a voice activated personal assistant similar to Siri
. And for those who worry about the lack of media options for the new models, there is expected to be a selection of movies and television shows available for purchase from BlackBerry App World amongst the 70,000 apps that are supposed to on the shelves of the online application store
at the time of the launch.
