Verizon's version of the QWERTY equipped BlackBerry Q10 will go on sale tomorrow for online buyers. Available in black or white, the phone will cost $199.99 with a signed two-year contract. The phone will be available from Verizon's brick and mortar stores beginning June 10th. The nation's largest carrier had started accepting pre-orders for the device at the end of last month.

We explained how there is a lot of pent of demand amongst BlackBerry users for a BlackBerry 10 model with the BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard. Where the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 was an attempt to entice Android and iOS users to join the BlackBerry 10 platform, the Q10 is really aimed at owners of some older BlackBerry models like the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930. BlackBerry fans love that BlackBerry keyboard including Google CEO Eric Schmidt who has already voiced his feelings about the 'Berry keyboard.

AT&T has just started taking pre-orders today for the BlackBerry Q10 which is also priced at $199.99 with a signed two-year pact. Sprint has said that it would offer the phone later this summer.
