The best BlackBerry you can buy right now

The Special Edition White and Gold BlackBerry Q10 now available from ShopBlackBerry UK

By Bla1ze on 29 Apr 2014 05:38 pm EDT

If you've been lusting after the Special Edition White and Gold BlackBerry Q10 that was previously only available in Dubai and various parts of the internet, we have what may be some good news for you. You can now purchase the device directly from ShopBlackBerry UK, assuming you have the £660.00 incl. VAT it costs to purchase it to spend.

Crafted using the finest quality materials, the Special Edition Gold and White BlackBerry Q10 delivers exceptional performance in an exclusively designed smartphone. The white microdot patterned back provides extra grip and contrasts beautifully with the brilliant gold colouring. A certificate of authenticity, matching gold-trimmed leather case, premium headset, and an exclusive smartphone PIN starting with "777" make this edition truly special.

The device has been making its rounds lately with rumors that it will also be available on various other ShopBlackBerry regional storefronts as well eventually but for now it appears limited to the UK.

Other than the outward design it doesn't appear to be an improvement over the original Q10. I want the tech specs


The Pxx2 has 64gb internal memory. They could have done the same here...

Nice. Hope the Q20 has one or more special edition(s).

I hope they sold the hundreds of thousands other Q10s they were sitting on after depreciation before they decided to produce even more. Looks sexy though!


What's that, around $1,100 US?

Just over that ;-)

These special editions need to drop shortly after launch. Instead of near the end of the production date.

Same here. Can have gold colors only on jewelry. Not on my cars, not on door knobs or faucets in my house, or on my phone.

Posted via CB10


This is what I've been wanting to see more of. BlackBerry can do well selling limited edition sets of various types. I'd love to see a Mercedes version to rival the Porsche ones.

BlackBerry would do well to make some super high end phones somewhere between the porsche line and the Vertu phones. Perhaps not right now, but it would be cool to see once things have turned around completely.

If Kevin O' leary still think bb10 is the best technology I'd imagine he'd be interested in picking one up.

Kevin is always saying how much he loves gold... and he overspent on a gold iPhone 5... so I expect to see an unboxing video of this on CB within a week!!! C'mon Kevin, show us some Gold BB love!


I'll make one next week :)

How homophonic of you to say that.

Pete The Penguin

Homophonic? Surely you mean 'homophobic'?

Unless the homophone is a new musical instrument...


Shit... I guess I made a major typo there. ;)


Hahahaha homophonic made me spit on my just-cleaned Q10 screen! :-D

Certainly a happy and joyful phone, if you can afford one

"No Q10?" -> "Buy from Chen... "

Lusting right now, I am.


Gotta say, looks nice!


I might even get a white battery cover like I did for my bold 9700 I previously used on telus in 2009-very late 2010. Might even get a white one for this bold 9900 too. :D this way, all my 'berries are black and white. :3


It costs HK$5688 here in Hong Kong, and we don't have GST here.
Anyway, I don't prefer buying such expensive mobile phone and I like black instead of white more.

Smart marketing. Offer this near the taper-off, to keep folks interested.

I would like to know how many of these type of custom units get/got sold at every ER.


Let's just hope the guys spending 660 £ doesn't end up with a double-typing Q10

I don't like these gold phones. IMO they are for ladies.

Someone else mentioned it and I van only agree - tacky.

I'd avoid gold were possible - in fact, my pens have platinum plated rings and clips because I couldn't agree with the cheaper gold.

I hope for the next high end blackberry phone they will include pouch. Mass producing a small faux leather shouldn't be that expensive Blackberry!

Does this have a different back cover to the normal Q10?

Posted via CB10


Wow your comment deserves more attention

Here in Canada, my local Telus store has the normal (black) Q10 for $700 without a contract. So this price point is hella attractive

Posted via CB10


Not sure why they're charging $700 in Canada when you can get the Black on at shop for $299 when they had the sale a few weeks back.


I'm thinking BlackBerry should also offer Q10's in red and gold or blue and gold. All the nautical types love them their blue and gold.


Just bought the parts to make my Q10 just like this :) So bad ass :)

Just amazing!! Its available for around Dhs 1750 in Dubai, which is around 480-500 US$.

PS: that rate is for the "market" and without warranty units, with warranty its around Dhs 2000.


Yes same here in Saudi Arabia...

I'm not an expert but why did blackberry come up with new phones z30 and the white and gold edition Q10 months before the new versions of BlackBerry phones? I'd rather wait...

Hideous. They could have at least brought out a titanium and leather edition.

Posted via Q10


yes. i want this. !!!!! was thinking of modifying mine myself. but i don't want to f*** it up :P

Maxim Klimin

Well, it's a good stylish Q10, and also with gold color how chic that would be for some pulling it out from jeans. Grabbing too much attention sometimes.

Posted via CB10

Prem WatsApp

My worry would be, does the gold trim around the edges last?

Even the black around the edges has slightly worn off on my Q10, just from removing it from its genuine flip case (in which it sat since mid-last year) a few times.

"No Q10?" -> "Buy from Chen... "


Really? BlackBerry is trying to pull an Apple. Come up with something of your own.

Posted via CB10


I prefer black and gold combo.

Or, black with a choice of different colors!

i got a question, i found this phone unlocked on amazon for $549. I'm temepted to buy but i want to know will it work for tmobile even though blackberry isnt with tmobile anymore?
