Pre-order the BlackBerry Q10 from AT&T for $199.99 starting Wednesday
AT&T will start taking pre-orders for the QWERTY equipped BlackBerry Q10 starting Wednesday, priced at $199.99 with a signed two-year pact. Just the other day, Verizon started taking pre-orders for the same device at the same price. T-Mobile has offered pre-orders of the device for its business customers only with a June 5th launch date expected for all of the carrier's customers. Sprint says it will offer the model later this summer.

The BlackBerry Q10 is expected to out sell the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 in the U.S. as there is pent-up demand for a BlackBerry 10 model with a physical QWERTY on board. Many BlackBerry users are accustomed to the manufacturer's physical keyboard and were somewhat surprised that the Canadian based company launched the Z10 for its first BlackBerry 10 release. But CEO Thorsten Heins explained that with BlackBerry losing market share inside companies that have allowed employees to bring their own device to work, the executive felt it prudent to fight back with a touch screen model of his own.


Strong sales of the BlackBerry Q10 in the U.K. and Canada would seem to indicate that Heins might have been better off had he released the QWERTY equipped model first, especially when you read about the response that the phone received in France. Customers of French carrier SFR have the BlackBerry Q10 beating out the Apple iPhone, the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4.

While AT&T is accepting pre-orders for the BlackBerry Q10 on Wednesday, there is no word on when the device will be shipped.

Just no.. That price is unrealistic right now if they want a chance to be in the top three.

Yup, I am laughing at that price. By the way, less and less handsets should be priced at the $200 tag.
