BlackBerry Q10

Vodafone UK have today announced that the BlackBerry Q10 is now available for pre-order in the UK. Much like the other carriers here - the 4G ready device will be free from £37.00 per month, although there will be a selection of plans to choose from.

With the end of the month drawing closer I'm seeing the hype grow for the second BlackBerry 10 smartphone to be released. There are still tons of die hard QWERTY keyboard fans out there who I suspect may well have held of from picking up the Z10 in favor of waiting for the Q10. Are you one of them?

I for one love my Z10 but having used the Q10 a few times now I know it's going to be a hard toss up which I use ongoing. Picking up my Bold 9900 still feels great although I love the Z10 onscreen keyboard. I suspect I may have a battle on my hands.

Roll on the end of the month.

You can pre-order the Q10 from Vodafone here.

Press Release

The meticulously crafted 4G-ready BlackBerry® Q10 smartphone is now available for pre-order at Vodafone UK, free on Vodafone Red Data price plans from £37 per month (including unlimited calls, unlimited texts and 1GB of data).

The BlackBerry Q10 is built to move with customers and adapt to their every need while delivering the high speed and connectivity needed to keep them on the move. With its vibrant 3.1 inch 330PPI Super AMOLED display, ergonomically sculpted keyboard and durable lightweight design, every inch of the smartphone is purpose built for premium performance.

Providing an effortless smartphone experience, the BlackBerry Q10 seamlessly integrates features and apps to allow every move to flow into the next. Customers can easily peek in and out of the BlackBerry® Hub staying close to what’s important to them without the need to stop what they’re doing.

The re-engineered BlackBerry keyboard allows faster and more accurate typing with the least amount of effort. Customers can switch from BBM™ chat to a face-to-face catch-up with BBM Video with just a tap of the screen, and with Screen Share, they can even instantly share photos, documents and emails running on their own BlackBerry Q10 smartphone without stopping the conversation.

Having one device for work and personal life has never been easier with BlackBerry® Balance™, while creating and organising interests, ideas and projects in one single location is painless with BlackBerry® Remember - whether they’re organising an event, managing a work project or planning a home extension. Customers can group together relevant photos, lists, messages and web links, as well as access saved web links offline, and sync related tasks with Microsoft® Outlook®.

The BlackBerry Q10 adds to Vodafone’s range of ‘4G-ready’ phones. Getting one of our 4G-ready phones means a customer will be good to go as soon as Vodafone 4G arrives, bringing them ultra-fast Internet and the best mobile video they’ve ever had from us. Once a customer has got their new phone, we’ll let them know the moment Vodafone 4G is available in their area, and we can then talk about adding Vodafone 4G to their monthly plan.
