BlackBerry Q10 is the white stuff at two U.K. retailers
The white version of the QWERTY equipped BlackBerry Q10 is now available at a pair of U.K.retailers. Selfridges, the high-end chain that had a U.K.exclusive on the device when it first launched, had set internal sales records once the BlackBerry Q10 was released late last month. Starting today, the retailer has the same phone in white available. The same version of the device can also be purchased from Carphone Warehouse and extra stock has been ordered to cover what is expected to be heavy demand for the phone.

The BlackBerry Q10 is available for free for those signing up for monthly plans with U.K. carriers such as O2, Orange, T-Mobile, Three, EE, Vodafone and TalkMobile. Prices start as low as £33 per month ($50.67) USD. Or, the device can be purchased SIM free for £579.95 ($890.46 USD).

Meanwhile, U.S. based BlackBerry fans are eagerly awaiting the end of this month when the phone is expected to launch in the states. Late last month, BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins called the phone a "high quality" handset for hyper-connected multitaskers that need to get the job done. Heins made that comment while discussing why the Q10 is priced $50 more than the popular Apple iPhone 5. Considering that T-Mobile decided at the last moment to offer the model, we could see some heavy demand for the BlackBerry Q10 in the U.S.
