If you are wondering which carrier will be offering the BlackBerry Z10, it's Verizon, see screenshot above for a screenshot.  Twitter user "evleaks," who has a solid track record of leaking accurate details and images of unreleased smartphones, published a purported screenshot from Verizon Wireless (VZ) on Friday.


The document confirms some details we already know - RIM's (RIMM) first full-touch BlackBerry 10 phone will be called the BlackBerry Z10 and will feature 4G LTE, among other specs - and it also confirms Verizon will support the handset.


The BlackBerry Z10 rumored to feature a 4.2-inch 1280x768 display as well as 8-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras, and unsurprisingly, it'll also feature 4G LTE connectivity on Verizon's network. There's still no word on exactly when Verizon customers will actually be able to get their paws on their very own Z10, but hey, at least now they can be extra sure that it's coming. 


If you are with Verizon, would you consider getting the BlackBerry Z10?  



Someone is selling the unreleased BlackBerry Z10 on eBay, current bid is well over $1,500 dollars.  Click below for the ebay to the auction.

Part of the description:

  • With today's announcement of the BlackBerry 10 platform and the high-end Z10 smartphone, BlackBerry (formerly RIM) showed that it doesn't have the slightest intention to play the silly specs game. The BlackBerry Z100 will neither have an octa-core processor, nor will it feature a 5" screen. Instead, the new flagship will keep things nice and compact, while still being powerful enough in order to deliver a perfectly smooth user experience. We approve.

AT&T will start taking pre-orders of the BlackBerry Z10 tomorrow prior to its official date of release on March 22nd. This phone is not only a new device since BlackBerry has revamped its name and removed RIM. It will also introduce the newest OS from the company, along with as many as 70,000 initial applications to boot. It will run on the BlackBerry 10 OS and is 4G LTE-enabled.


AT&T is offering it at $199.99, which is $50 less than what T-Mo is offering its business customers. The Z10 looks sleek and promising with its dual core Snapdragon S4 chipset that clock in at 1.5GHz each. It has front and rear cameras at 8 and 2 MP, respectively and 2GB memory. It will come in black and white variants. Who knows, this might just be the redeeming factor that BlackBerry has been waiting for in "ages"?

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!

Blackberry has launched its latest smartphone, but how does it measure up to the most popular handsets in the market today? Google features the Nexus 4 by LG whereas the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3 embody the best-selling handsets for their individual platforms.


The all-touch Z10 by Blackberry fares well against the competition though, for tech geeks, essentials like a quad-core CPU will be missed. At the end of the day, its evaluation will be determined by the BlackBerry 10 operating system's ability to harmonize its functions with the given hardware and this is no easy task.
