The BlackBerry Z10 smartphone was always going to attract a lot of interest as it’s the first device to launch running the all-new BlackBerry operating system, BB10. The Z10 is already on sale in the UK and Canada but US customers are still waiting patiently to get their hands on this notable smartphone. It is due for a release in the US in March and we’d just like to let potential BlackBerry Z10 US customers know that they haven’t been forgotten.
When the BlackBerry Z10 was officially announced BlackBerry informed that it would be a bit later to hit stateside, giving a launch date of mid to late March. It will be available on multiple US carriers and we’ve recently seen some promising signs that it’s still on target for that March release as we told how the Verizon variant had passed through the FCC and then just two days ago how some Verizon Z10 photos had come to light.
There is still no definite date for availability on US carriers but some waiting customers may be pleased to learn that BlackBerry has acknowledged the fact that they are still waiting and maybe in a bid to reassure those customers the company has tweeted from its official account. Yesterday BlackBerry tweeted, “From East Coast to West, BlackBerry 10 will be available across the U.S. in a few short weeks.” This sounds as though the mid to late March timeframe is still very much on then and at least potential customers can be more confident that they haven’t been overlooked.
As well as this a link to a landing page was provided so that if you’re in the US you can register for Z10 updates for AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile and be kept in the loop with the latest developments. Simply click on the carrier names in this paragraph to be taken straight to the relevant pages.
We’d like to know if you’re in the US and waiting for the BlackBerry Z10. Does this tweet from BlackBerry reassure you that you haven’t been forgotten? Maybe you’re frustrated that you have to wait so much longer than customers in some other regions to get the Z10? Let us have your comments.
