T-Mobile to start selling BlackBerry Z10 to business customers on March 11th for $249.99
T-Mobile had said that it wanted to be the first in the U.S. to launch the BlackBerry Z10, and it did get its way. The nation's fourth largest carrier is offering the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 this coming Monday, March 11th, for $249.99. But there are some caveats. First, the phone is being offered now only to T-Mobile's business customers, and a signed two-year contract must be signed for service using the Classic plan. Delivery of the device could start by the end of next week.

T-Mobile did not say when sales of the first BlackBerry 10 handsets would be available to consumers except to say that it would happen sometime before the end of March. As far as the price is concerned, the $249.99 on contract price seems to continue the carrier's recent trend toward offering smaller subsidies for devices than its rivals. Verizon, which plans on offering its version of the BlackBerry Z10 at the end of this month, has already announced that it will sell the phone for $199.99 with a signed two-year pact.

On Thursday, there was a report that AT&T would launch the BlackBerry Z10 on March 22nd, but there has been no official word from the nation's second largest carrier.
