BlackBerry Q10 pre-orders accepted now at Carphone Warehouse
The first BlackBerry 10 model to sport the luscious BlackBerry physical QWERTY, the BlackBerry Q10 is now available for pre-order from the U.K.'s Carphone Warehouse for a rather pricey 600GBP ($913.32 USD). If that sounds like too much of a hit to your wallet, you can always grab the phone for free with a signed two-year contract that costs as low as 36 GBP ($54.80 USD) a month. The actual cost will depend on which carrier you select from among O2, Orange, T-Mobile, EE and TalkMobile.

While delivery of the BlackBerry Q10 is listed for the end of April at Carphone Warehouse, fellow U.K. retailer Unlocked-Mobiles has a more specific shipping date of April 26th on its web site, although that has not been confirmed by BlackBerry. Unlocked-Mobiles, which as its name suggests sells only unlocked handsets, is offering the BlackBerry Q10 for pre-order at a lower unlocked price of 529.98 GBP ($806.74 USD).

While a large number of BlackBerry Z10 buyers came from other platforms to buy the phone, the BlackBerry Q10 is directed at loyalists who can't get enough of that physical BlackBerry QWERTY.
