Good news for BB OS fans. BlackBerry Z10 has just been launched on Verizon for only $199.99 for a 2-year contract. The touchscreen smartphone is available online and on Verizon outlets.
This 4-incher features a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor that clocks in at 1.5 GHz, 2GB RAM, is LTE-enabled, 16GB internal plus expandable memory, and an 8MP back camera.
On the other hand, some Verizon competitors will also be offering the device to their clients. First up is AT&T, which offers the same plan as Verizon. Sprint has not yet decided if it will launch the BB Z10 as it earlier on announced that it will wait later in the year to launch the BB Q10. It's not yet too late anyway.
T-Mobile arguably has a better payment plan as it only requires $99 down payment and $18/month for a two-year contract. According to some critics, the Z10 may just be the best touchscreen phone that BlackBerry has created, more positive news for them as they announced that they have just shipped 1M units of devices during their first fiscal quarter. Good job, BlackBerry!

Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile are taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, this leaving Sprint the only major US carrier that doesn't do that. However, it appears as though Sprint will start selling the Note 3 at approximately the same time with the other three mobile operators anyway.
Based on IBTimes, Sprint will launch the brand new Note on October 2 - the same day when the system is expected to be in stock at T-Mobile. AT&T should provide the Note 3 starting October 2, while Verizon expects to produce it a bit later - on October 10. Like Verizon and AT&T, Sprint will most likely ask $299.99 (on contract) for the new Note. Most likely, the third largest US carrier will have two color versions of the device: black and white.
Introduced by Samsung earlier this year as the successor towards the popular Galaxy Note and Galaxy Note 2, the Note 3 runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, and features: a 5.7 inch Super AMOLED display with 1920 x 1080 pixels, S Pen stylus, LTE connectivity, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, 13MP rear camera with LED flash and 2160p video recording, 2MP front-facing camera, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of memory, and a 3,200 mAh battery.
Having launched the Nexus 7 last summer, Google and Nexus seem to be preparing the second generation Nexus 7.
With Google's I/O conference being held between the 15th and 17th of May, the upcoming Asus-manufactured tablet may be unveiled there, according to DigiTimes.
The new Nexus 7 features a thinner bezel and a Full HD (1920 x 1080) display running on the Android Jellybean platform. Pricing should be similar to that of the Nexus 7: $199 for the 8GB version, $249 for the 16GB one, and $299 for the 32GB one. Its retailing date is yet to be announced.
Sales are expected to surpass 6 million units this month. Similarly, Google is preparing to launch a Nexus 10 tablet featuring a quad-core CPU and an eight-core Mali T678 GPU to be manufactured by Samsung.
