And just like that, BlackBerry
's first U.S.-bound BB10 device has Verizon Wireless' support. The Z10
had yet to be announced for VZW until today, but it looks as if it'll ship to customers of that carrier just days after it arrives on AT&T's network. Starting 3/14 at 8am ET, VZW customers will be able to pre-order the handset, with initial shipments happening on 3/28. Customers will be able to choose from two color models, Black or White, with White being a Verizon Wireless exclusive.
The Z10 will fully support Verizon's LTE
network, and moreover, those wishing for a keyboard-equipped BB10 smartphone can rest easy: VZW will soon offer the Q10 as soon as BlackBerry ships it. The BlackBerry Z10 will be available for $199.99 with a new two year customer agreement, but there has yet to be a price tag placed on the forthcoming Q10.
