Bell runs its first BlackBerry Z10 ad; Rogers takes pre-orders for the BlackBerry Q10
Palm Pre, which was expected to be the next Apple iPhone coming out of CES in 2009. On the other hand, Motorola and Verizon focused on the things that "iDon't, DROID does," and it was the Motorola DROID that kicked off Androidmania. Features sell phones. Even those that couldn't tell the difference between quad-core and an apple core can be sold on the premise of a faster processor.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday, Canadian carrier Rogers said it would start taking pre-orders for the BlackBerry Q10, apparently the world's first carrier to take reservations of the physical QWERTY enabled BlackBerry10 device. There is some speculation that the phone will launch in April with an earlier launch possible in Canada. The BlackBerry Q10 is for those long time BlackBerry users who can't do without the physical BlackBerry QWERTY.
