From the looks of things BlackBerry created a contender with their just announced Blackberry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10. The question now is “where and when I can get my hands on these new BB devices?” and I’m sure I’m not alone with this sentiments.
So BlackBerry published a blog post outlining the worldwide pricing and availability of BlackBerry Z10 and Q10.
- In the UK, the BlackBerry Z10 will be available January 31 on a pay monthly contracts and pre-pay plans from EE, O2, Vodafone, Phones 4u, BT, 3UK and the Carphone Warehouse.

- In the UAE, the BlackBerry Z10 will be available on February 10th. Pricing will vary by carrier partner, but unsubsidized it will retail for AED 2,599.
- In the U.S. market, we expect availability with most carriers for the BlackBerry Z10 to be in March. Today, U.S. carriers will start announcing pre-registration and price plans.
Blackberry also said that they’re working or will be working with carriers and global partners to launch a pre-registration and pre-order sites starting on January 31, 2013.
