BlackBerry Q10 to be launched by Sprint on August 30th
Sprint will be launching the BlackBerry Q10 on August 30th, priced at $199.99 with a signed two-year contract. What makes this interesting is that Sprint never had added the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 to its roster earlier this year, thus making the Q10 its first BlackBerry 10 handset. And this also makes the BlackBerry Q10 the first 4G LTE enabled BlackBerry ever offered to Sprint customers.

Back in March, Sprint spokesman Mark Elliot was asked why Sprint wasn't planning on offering the Z10, and he said "We aren’t saying there’s anything different about our customers. We think our customers will be happy with the QWERTY keyboard and touch screen on the Q10." This doesn't mean that Sprint customers won't have an all-touch BlackBerry 10 model to choose from this year. Back in June, Sprint confirmed that it was going to be offering its customers the 5 inch, all-touch BlackBerry Aristo. This model, now known as the Z30, will be the most powerful BlackBerry ever with a dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro Plus CPU, an Adreno 305 GPU and 2GB of RAM. The BlackBerry Aristo is expected to launch in November.
