Our ritual unboxing of the Verizon BlackBerry Q10
After a long wait for US users, Verizon has released the BlackBerry Q10 and we've scoped out the goods. There isn't anything left in the dark when it comes to the Q10 for the most part, but we always like to dive into new carrier devices just for fun.
The first thing you'll notice is that the Verizon BlackBerry Q10 box is a simple black all around - no purple Q10 logo like we've seen on devices from other carriers.
Once you pull off the sleeve and get the box open, the is Q10 nicely setup inside with the included accessories underneath. You'll find the Q10 itself, the microUSB charging block and cable (which you can use to charge in a wall outlet or your computer) various manuals and the NX1 Q10 battery. What's notably missing are earbuds.
Even though you can buy them separately, as we saw with most of the Z10's in the US, Verizon (as well as T-Mobile) has chosen not to throw in the premium headset that most Canadian carriers are including in the box.
The branding on the Verizon Q10 is very visible yet not terribly annoying. There is a logo on the bottom plate on the front of the device as well as the back on the battery door (which can easily be swapped out). It's not as bad as the oddly place branding on the Z10 though which is nice.
That's really all there is to it. If you haven't scoped out the Q10 yet you can find everything you need on our BlackBerry Q10 page.
