BlackBerry, Tech Digest news

blackberry-z10-02.JPGDespite launching in the UK last month, US BlackBerry fans have been unable to get their hands on the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone. However, the wait for BlackBerry’s flagship phone with the new BB10 operating system may soon be over, a tweet from BlackBerry’s official Twitter account has revealed.

The Waterloo, Canada-based company tweeted that:

“BlackBerry 10 will be available across the US in a few short weeks,” showing that the US release is still on target. At the handset’s launch event the company announced the BlackBerry Z10 was launching on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon sometime in mid-March, and while a specific date still has not been given, it looks as though that launch window is still on track.

The QWERTY keyboard Q10 handset is expected to follow in May or June.

According to BlackBerry, the Z10 launch has so far been a success. European managing director Stephen Bates said: “The response we have seen exceeded all of our launch partners’ expectations.

“Our partners have told us that they have sold out in some of their key locations”.
