Rumors point out that AT&T will be offering the BlackBerry Z10 starting March 22nd. If you don’t want to wait you have the option of ordering the BlackBerry Z10 unlocked and free of contract, then head over to Negrielectronics to place your order for the BlackBerry Z10 in either white or black. This will set you back $679.50 for either white or black BlackBerry Z10.
RIM has made the BlackBerry Z10 available in 21 other countries already, only way to get your hands on one in the US is to order a unlocked BlackBerry Z10. If you want to hold off and get one on contract, you should see US carriers offering the Z10 for around $199 with 2-year contract.
The BlackBerry Z10 will give you a great experience with the all new BlackBerry 10. The touch screen is 4.2-inch which is a tad roomier than the current iPhone 5 in screen size. Browsing can be a challenge on smaller display. At this time I am using the Galaxy Note II, and at 5.5-inch display it is quite a large display.
The 768 x 1280 resolution and 326 ppi you will get eye popping images and great text to read your emails. The Touch On Lens technology is applied to the back side of the cover glass which eliminates the need to have a separate touch panel and in turn allows for a thin design.
The BlackBerry Z10 has great hardware, great design and for the most part it is good looking device. The ability to also run Android application makes the BlackBerry Z10 a bit tempting for those that are on Android, just a word of caution, not all Android apps will work.
Inside the BlackBerry Z10 you get a 1800 mAh battery, powered with dual-core 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4470 processor, 16GB built in memory, 2GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera, microSD slot, NFC, WiFi a/b/g/n dual band for greater strength and Bluetooth 4.0. This gives the BlackBerry Z10 the ability to compete with iOS and Android devices with these great specs.
