Leaked document shows that the BlackBerry Q10 will launch in Canada via Rogers on April 30th
A leaked internal Rogers document reveals that April 19th is the Canadian carrier's target date for certification of the QWERTY equipped BlackBerry Q10. The same document shows the launch date of the phone to be April 30th. That should excite a large number of BlackBerry fans who who have been waiting for the launch of this model. With that fabulous physical QWERTY keyboard below the 3.1 inch 720 x 720 screen, the BlackBerry Q10 is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage.

The largest capacity battery ever to be found on a BlackBerry, 2100mAh, energizes the Q10 and the back and front facing cameras weigh in at 8MP and 2MP respectively. The camera on back captures video in 1080p. The phone offers Wi-Fi, and LTE connectivity along with support for NFC. There is no word on color choice or pricing for the BlackBerry Q10 which many feel will out sell the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 thanks to the keyboard which has been a traditional mainstay for BlackBerry devices going back to the company's pagers.

Besides the BlackBerry Q10, the leaked document also shows that Rogers will be launching the entry level Nokia Lumia 520 on May 6th. This is a low-end model with a 4 inch WVGA screen, a dual-core 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and a 5MP camera on back with no flash. In India, where pre-orders for the Nokia Lumia 520 have started, online retailer Flipkart already has the device as its second best selling phone.
