View an early unboxing of the T-Mobile BlackBerry Q10; launch coming June 5th?
T-Mobile was originally going to sit out the launch of the QWERTY equipped BlackBerry Q10. Whether it was an epiphany that came to the executives of the fourth largest U.S. carrier, or the result of in-house surveys, T-Mobile did a reversal and will indeed carry the second BlackBerry 10 powered handset released by the Canadian OEM.

One of the reasons for T-Mobile's about-face could be the idea that true BlackBerry fans held back from purchasing the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 because of the lack of a physical keyboard on the device. And if there is one thing that we know, just as we all need to breathe the air, drink water, and carry a smartphone in order to live, BlackBerry fans need that QWERTY keyboard on their phones to survive.

A gentleman named Geoffrey Gordon was able to obtain a T-Mobile branded BlackBerry Q10 and he took a video as he unboxed the device with the 3.1 inch 720 x 720 screen. Besides the device and the usual brochures, manuals and guides, the box contained the charger and the battery. We're not sure how Geoffrey was able to get his hands on the BlackBerry Q10 from T-Mobile, but Gordo is probably a very popular fellow wherever he lives.

The latest runmor has the BlackBerry Q10 launching June 5th from T-Mobile for a down payment of $99.99 with the balance paid off in 24 installments of $20 each making the total cost of the phone $579.99.

BB10 is an absolute freakin mess. Sorry guys but the Q10 won't save Blackberry from impending bankruptcy or hostile takeover, which is quite sad really. I guess Nokia were right to dump Symbian and move to third party software.

Blackberry will probably always be a niche player hence forth, but if they can keep a foothold in the corporate world they can still make money. Time will tell.

Still can't grow-up, gentlemen? And I use the term gentlemen, loosely. Please, troll someplace else. You've made your point numerous times and I find it tiresome, as I'm sure most everyone else does. BB is not going anywhere, depite your considerable efforts to bring them down with pointless and unfounded jabber.

The challenge still stands for you, though. Continue this line of commenting so the rest of us can see who you really are and realize that your commentary is not worth reading or heeding. The only reason I comment is to continue to challenge you in the hopes you will gain an ounce of respect for yourself and others. To be this belligerent borders on infantile.

Then why do you comment? Nobody said you had to say anything. Blackberry will not be around in the next few years. They are on a slow decline and will fail!

Ha! You didn't read the reason why that I gave. Continued beligerence. Well, BB will be around longer than your ridiculous prophecy. So, you can continue to comment and I will be here to offer you the opportunity to end your childish commentary. Or let's hope the moderators will end your pointless commentary.
