BlackBerry Q10 pre-orders commence in United Kingdom

updated 01:19 pm EDT, Fri April 5, 2013

Orders for Q10 to reach UK customers by end of April

Pre-orders for the BlackBerry Q10 have opened up in the United Kingdom, after a relatively successful launch of the Z10 in the country. Both the Carphone Warehouse and Phones4U chains are taking orders for the keyboard-equipped BB10 smartphone, while the national carriers themselves appear not to have done so.

Phones4U and Carphone Warehouse are relatively similar in pricing the device, offering the Q10 for around 36 ($) per month on a two-year contract, with an option to get the device SIM-free for 580 ($). In terms of incentives, Phones4U are offering the first 300 customers a 64GB BlackBerry Playbook, while Carphone Warehouse are providing a free Bluetooth speaker for every pre-order instead.

The Q10 has a full QWERTY keyboard, a square 3.1-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display, and 16GB of internal storage, expandable by up to 64GB via microSD. The rear 8-megapixel camera is paired with a 2-megapixel front-facing version, while options for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC connectivity are also built-in.

Customers can expect to receive their orders by the end of April. No release date has been provided for the device in the US.
