BlackBerry's Z10 smartphone is now officially available in Australia, with Optus pipping the other telcos to the post of being the first to offer the new handset.

New customers can pick up a Z10 with no handset repayments on the $100 or $130 per month plans. Both of those plans feature unlimited national calls and SMS, plus 3GB and 4GB of data, respectively. Currently, the cheapest plan is the $30 per month with $18 of handset repayments each month and 200MB of data.

The same pricing plans are in place for existing customers looking to upgrade their phones and plans.

Telstra will be ranging the Z10 from tomorrow, 26 March. It will be offering the white version of the Z10 in addition to the standard black, with the white phone exclusive to Telstra until 26 June.
