BlackBerry Q10 to officially launch on May 1st on Canadian carriers Rogers, Bell and TELUS
For those in BlackBerry’s back yard that have been waiting (im)patiently for the BlackBerry 10 powered QWERTY successor to the Bold 9900-series, your wait is almost over.

Beginning May 1st, the BlackBerry Q10 will be available on Rogers, TELUS, and Bell. The price with a three-year contract will be $199. The Q10 will also be available on Virgin Mobile Canada, Koodo, and Sasktel.

Retail partners are part of the rollout as well, with Best Buy, Future Shop, TBooth, The Source, WIRELESSWAVE and Walmart Canada all in the queue to begin selling what many see as the make-or-break-device for BlackBerry. BlackBerry was the jewel of the smartphone realm not even five years ago.

Now, BlackBerry is on a task just to remain relevant in the global smartphone world. The Z10 has stirred a lot of interest, but many have felt that the heart of BlackBerry is its stellar physical keyboards. The Q10’s keyboard is a little bigger than the Bold 9900’s. We expect it will live up to establishing the standard for physical keyboards yet again.
