Verizon's BlackBerry Z10 pays a visit to the FCC
With AT&T's version of the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 having already visited the FCC, those men and women who work for the agency just got to feast their eyes on the Verizon model of the initial BlackBerry 10 handset. The model number is STL 100-4. While it doesn't mean that a launch is imminent, it does mean that one bump in the road to a U.S. launch of the phone has been removed. There are other potential roadblocks to a very successful launch, though. For example, after initial word that the BlackBerry Z10 had a record breaking launch in the U.K.and Canada, some analysts are poo-pooing the reports saying that low supplies of the phone were the culprit behind the sellouts, not high demand.

Regardless, T-Mobile says it is dying to be the first in the States to launch the phone and said a couple of weeks ago that the device was more stable than it had thought. That could lead to a launch sometime in the middle of next week. In May or June, we should see the physical QWERTY equipped BlackBerry Q10 launched in the U.S. Some analysts believe that this is the model that will do well around the globe because of its similarity to the form factor of the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 right down to that fabulous keyboard. We were able to get our hands on the BlackBerry Q10 the other day and if you have any interest in the phone at all, you should take a gander at it by clicking on this link.
