Walmart Canada taking pre-orders for BlackBerry 10 at select locations
Best Buy Canada already started accepting pre-orders for BlackBerry 10 and is letting customers reserve one of the new units for $50. Considering that RIM is a Canadian based company, it isn't surprising that retailers inside the country are getting the first crack at offering customers the chance to pre-order the first BlackBerry 10 smartphone, which is expected to be the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 model. For some reason, Walmart has not posted which stores will be accepting the pre-orders
After BlackBerry 10 is unveiled at a press event on January 30th, the handsets are rumored to hit the stores in February. A recently leaked T-Mobile road map shows the BlackBerry Lisbon, presumably the Z10, launching on March 27th, weeks after Canadians will apparently get first crack at it.
The discount retailer has also linked to some new promotional material for BlackBerry 10 that you can find below.

I don't know about y'all, but after being devoted to Windows Phone for about a year now, I'm excited to try the new BB10. I used to love my BB

Ready to switch so soon?
I still like Blackberry and their phones. Even if they kept the similar design. They should have made it touch and made it into a powerhouse, but demand would be low, because not everyone is into business use. It is useful for people like me.
