Walmart Canada taking pre-orders for BlackBerry 10 at select locations
Walmart Canada has taken to its Facebook page to announce that it is taking pre-orders for the first BlackBerry 10 handset. On the page, Walmart promotes the Time Shift mode on the new BlackBerry 10 camera. With this mode, the camera captures images of your subject milliseconds before and after you snap the shutter allowing you to find the best facial expression for your picture.

Recently, Best Buy Canada already started accepting pre-orders for BlackBerry 10 and is letting customers reserve one of the new units for $50. Considering that RIM is a Canadian based company, it isn't surprising that retailers inside the country are getting the first crack at offering customers the chance to pre-order the first BlackBerry 10 smartphone, which is expected to be the all-touch BlackBerry Z10 model. For some reason, Walmart has not posted which stores will be accepting the pre-orders

After BlackBerry 10 is unveiled at a press event on January 30th, the handsets are rumored to hit the stores in February. A recently leaked T-Mobile road map shows the BlackBerry Lisbon, presumably the Z10, launching on March 27th, weeks after Canadians will apparently get first crack at it.

The discount retailer has also linked to some new promotional material for BlackBerry 10 that you can find below.
