Sprint To Skip The BlackBerry Z10 In Favor Of Q10
Article by: Carlo Raphael Diokno — Sprint is the only major U.S. wireless carrier that will skip the all-touch BlackBerry Z10, a report by Bloomberg has confirmed.
The full-touch BlackBerry 10 smartphone will start shipping to United States soon, but only the three other major U.S. wireless carriers will offer the BlackBerry Z10, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile and AT&T.
Verizon is already accepting “e-mails” while AT&T and T-Mobile already posted their own Z10 page for public viewing. Sprint says it will launch the BlackBerry Q10 this year, the device that resembles the BlackBerry Bold 9900 with a new QWERTY physical keyboard, but includes the new BlackBerry 10 mobile operating system with the new apps world support.
The BlackBerry Q10 is expected to run on Sprint’s LTE network, but the BlackBerry Z10 of Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile are also poised to run on the faster network which offers faster downloads and uploads.
Sprint has not announced the release date of the BlackBerry Q10 yet, but it is safe to say that both the BlackBerry Z10 and the Q10 will arrive at the same time, week or month.
BlackBerry, formerly called Research in Motion, recently updated its BlackBerry 10 OS with improvements to the BlackBerry Z10′s battery life, camera application and third-party application support. Source.
