T-Mobile to start selling BlackBerry Z10 to business customers on March 11th for $249.99

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.

So which phones had 2GB of RAM in 2011?

Well I wouldn't necessarily say 100%. Lol. But yeah, $250 is still too much for a 2 year contract for the Z10. I think it should be at least $149. Considering that BB currently isn't in the best position right now. At least Nokia and other Windows Phone makers were smart enough to keep the prices low to get people to buy WP8 devices.

If you think about it, Blackberry is using Apple's technique....make a phone with previous gen specs and sell it more for a "seamless and optimized software experience" on the device. To be honest, it doesn't really matter if it has the latest and greatest specs. It can have a fricken S3 processor for all I care....as long as it remains lag-less that is all that matters. And since when was a dual core A15 equivalent processor outdated? An S4 still can pull its weight in this day and age. Just like on an iPhone, I wouldn't want to see a quad-core processor unless there is some extremely processor intensive software running on it...All a quad-core processor would do for the Z-10 is run up the production costs....JS

is it just my eyes or does that phone look a little lopsided as in too skinny on the side and fat on the top and bottom? its like it has two bezzles...one for the case of the phone itself then another spot just to say blackberry...

T mobile must be crazy. Why sell it for 249$? While other high end phones sells it for 249$ that should be the main price point. Hopefully at&t wont sell it for 249. Besides it doesnt have a big battery.

Selling it to enterprise level at $249 is a great deal. In this day and age coprations are not spending like they use to. So even have the option of bring your own phone. So $249 would make a difference in the long term versus short term.
