The BlackBerry Q10 is a great phone for QWERTY diehards and e-mail addicts, but anyone who doesn't need a physical keyboard should skip it.
T-Mobile pins launch date of the Q10 for June 5, priced at $99.99 down.
The typist-friendly BlackBerry Q10 lands at three carriers this summer to prove its title as the keyboard master.
Starting April 29, business customers from T-Mobile can register for the keyboard-equipped BlackBerry Q10.
The carrier's latest typing master will appear on store shelves early next week, but you can reserve yours as early as Thursday.
The Q10 is BlackBerry's first device to launch on all four U.S. national carriers, and the company is feeling confident. "There is no competition," COO Kristian Tear says of the keyboard segment.
It's official -- the Q10 will land on the Big Red next week.
The BlackBerry Q10, first BlackBerry 10 phone with a Qwerty keyboard, costs £580 and is on sale today from all the major networks.
CEO Thorsten Heins says the release date for the smartphone with keyboard will depend on testing.
For the newly renamed RIM, it's crucial that the BlackBerry 10 OS and the new phones strike paydirt. The company likely won't have another chance to stem the tide of users fleeing its platform.
