Q10 to cost $100 up-front, $20 monthly over 2 years, $580 without plan
T-Mobile has revealed more information about its launch of the BlackBerry Q10 on its network, which could end up being launched alongside the wider availability of the HTC One. The Q10 with its QWERTY keyboard will be available from the carrier on June 5th at retail, though some business customer that pre-ordered the device since May 14th have already received it.
The consumer price of $100 up-front and 24 monthly payments of $20, or $580 off-contract for the Q10 remains the same as previously reported. Business customers wanting the Q10 will have to pay at least $120 up-front for the device, depending on the priceplan.
Aside from the official statement from T-Mobile about the Q10, TmoNews claims the HTC One will become more easily available to customers on the same date, with all retail and branded stores receiving stock of the device next Wednesday. The original launch of the device on T-Mobile was limited to just 300 stores, due to HTC's now-rectified supply issues.
