AT&T to launch BlackBerry Q10 on June 21 for $199.99Alex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
After kicking off pre-orders for its version of the BlackBerry Q10 earlier this month, AT&T today revealed exactly when the QWERTY-fied BlackBerry 10 handset will be landing on its shelves. The BlackBerry Q10 will be available from AT&T's stores and website starting on June 21, aka this Friday, with pricing set at $199.99 on a two-year contract or $584.99 without a commitment. AT&T is also running a trade-in program that will allow consumers to knock at least $100 off of the price of a new smartphone when they trade in their current device.
Following the launch of the full-touch BlackBerry Z10 earlier this year, the BlackBerry Q10 recently launched on T-Mobile and Verizon and is now headed to AT&T, giving anyone that's still addicted to hardware keyboards a new device to check out. Smartphones with physical keyboards seem to be a bit of a dying breed lately, and so the Q10 is kind of a big deal for folks that still prefer to type on actual keys rather than a piece of glass.
The BlackBerry Q10 also features a 3.1-inch touchscreen, giving users the option of tapping on their device's display if they're in a touchy mood, as well as support for AT&T's 4G LTE network. The Q10 product page on AT&T's website can be found bit hitting up the appropriate link below.
