What used to be one of the major smartphone manufacturers in the world is now nothing but a pale shadow of itself, and I am referring to the company formerly known as Research In Motion, or RIM for short, that hails from the Great White North. Well, RIM changed their name recently at the end of January this year to just BlackBerry, in an effort to be able to better connect with their customer base (future or current one), in addition to introducing a couple of new BlackBerry smartphones with the all-new BlackBerry 10 operating system. Of course, the BlackBerry Z10 is one of them, and we have word from AT&T that from March 22nd onwards, the BlackBerry Z10 will be made available to interested parties.
Pre-sales of the BlackBerry Z10 will kick off from March 12th onwards, where you will have to drop $199.99 for the BlackBerry Z10 which will come with a two-year agreement. Of course, the asking price is pretty much in line with the rest of the high end models from other smartphone manufacturers regardless of the mobile operating system. Corporate customers or those receiving a corporate discount can get their BlackBerry Z10 via all available AT&T channels when March 22nd rolls around.
What makes the BlackBerry Z10 more special than all the other BlackBerry devices out there? For starters, this is said to be the first smartphone that has launched with the re-designed, re-engineered and re-invented BlackBerry 10 platform, where it will enable customers to enjoy a powerful and unique new mobile experience. Also, this is the fastest and most advanced BlackBerry smartphone to date, and will boast of an all-touch keyboard, a high-resolution 4.2-inch display and an 8-megapixel camera that is more than capable of handling 1080p HD video. Other than that, this is also the first BlackBerry device that plays nice with AT&T’s 4G LTE network. Any takers?
