You may have already pre-ordered the T-Mobile BlackBerry Q10, but today TMO officially announced the device will hit its stores on June 5. T-Mobile also disclosed the physical-keyboarded handset will cost an initial payment of $99.99.

Running BlackBerry's latest software, BlackBerry 10, the Q10 sports the renowned QWERTY made famous on the BlackBerry Bold. The keys, however, are 30 percent bigger which makes for even more comfortable typing. This should come as a relief for keyboard diehards yearning for a modern crackberry decked out with tangible buttons.

Other welcome attributes you'll find on the BlackBerry Q10 include support for T-Mobile's new 4G LTE data network, an 8-megapixel camera, and a big 2,100mAh battery. The phone relies on a small 3.1-inch display though, so viewing photos, video, and Web sites is a bit of an eye strain.

Keep in mind that the Q10 will also hit AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon (in a special white version) soon as well.
