Update: BlackBerry Q10 Three UK forestalls release confusion


UPDATE: Just to let all our readers know that you can now see the BlackBerry Q10 over on Three UK, the site is up and running correctly.

Since BlackBerry lunched its new mobile phone operating system a few months ago sales of its flagship handset the Z10 have been growing, but the company is now beginning to roll out the other handset that made an appearance at the original showcase event. Today though there is some BlackBerry Q10 Three UK release confusion, there is no longer any confusion as the site is up a running now.

Back in April the handset launched in the UK as an exclusive for high street retailer Selfridges, and has since seen its availability spread with early signs hinting at strong sales for the device.

Now there is one website that is claiming to have a press release from data king Three announcing that the BlackBerry Q10 is available now for purchase, but the trouble is on checking the official carrier website there is currently no sign of the handset. The site is all up and running now.

There is even pricing given for the smartphone with contracts starting at £35 per month with a £49 down payment, and the promise of the famous all you can eat data. Now there is a good chance the information will prove to be accurate but the source may have just jumped the gun with the press release, or Three is taking a while to update its website.

To quickly recap the BlackBerry Q10 has a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED display powered by a dual core processor running at 1.5GHZ with 2GB of RAM. There is 16GB of internal memory that can be expanded by another 64GB, 8-megapixel camera, 2-megapixel front facer, 4G LTE connectivity, and a 2,100 mAh battery.

    Do not order this product. i just did and i am still trying to unwind the mess. They had none in stock and said they’d have one in two days. it didn’t turn up but they transferred my billing plan anyway two days early, so my old 9900 stopped receiving emails.This is because the new sytem appears to be incompatible with the old one. Then they kept me on the phone for three hours with a range of denials. When they finally admitted their error they offered my £5 compensation – for wasting three hours on the phone and losing two and a half hours of emails. I am self-employed and missed several important communications. When I told them to cancel the new contract they said they couldn’t unless I went to my local store and did it in person – another hour of my time wasted (they even acknowledged that I was within the 7-day cancellation period, but that didn’t matter). My family have three Vodafone Blackberries and I’m cancelling them all.

      Why are you blaming this on BlackBerry? This was clearly a mistake on the carrier’s part and you are holding someone else accountable for something they had nothing to do with. Sounds to me like you’re being dramatic about the product, in a human error situation.
