The air was electric this morning in the Rogers headquarters in Toronto as Thorsten Heins and Rogers head Nadir Mohamed introduced the BlackBerry Z10 to the Canadian media and fielded a handful of questions. It's a pretty momentous occasion, as this is the first firm sign of retail availability in North America, though Rogers is far from alone; Bell and TELUS are also offering this bad boy, and I'm getting the feeling WIND and Mobilicity will have it too, though they've been awfully quiet about the whole affair.

You can see Nadir and Thorsten all in the video above, fed into the tale of Kevin's purchase of the white BlackBerry Z10. Be sure to check out his unboxing!
