For tech fans this is going to be the best news. BlackBerry Q10 vs Z10 are being compared by many. Here we take a look at their release date besides specs and feature

BlackBerry Q10 is making headlines across the world even before its launch in the market. Many people say that Ontario, Canada based company’s Z10 full touch screen handset is not selling so much because BlackBerry fans are awaiting the launch of Q10 in the market. QWERTY keyboards are the speciality of the company and the Q10 handset is coming with its unmatched QWERTY keyboard with added advantage of the touch screen. So this is coming with the best of both the worlds and so there should be no doubt as to why the handset is being awaited very impatiently by many old BlackBerry fans.

But while BlackBerry Q10 is being awaited with bated breath, the company’s full touchscreen handset Z10 is not doing bad either. In fact this handset is responsible for taking the company out of the red and has made it profitable, though by mere $98 million. This is very significant for a company that looked in a hopeless situation. With another handset in its armour  the company can expect to create confidence in the minds of its users that it was a dependable company and was there for a long haul.

In the meantime many U.K. retailers have begun to take pre-orders for the upcoming BlackBerry Q10 phone. Pre-order price of the device starts at £530, and it may fluctuate a little bit with various vendors. It seems that the device will land in the country sometime in April. It is now certainly one of the much awaited phones in the market and you will get a variety of offers and deals for the new BlackBerry OS 10 handset. As far as BlackBerry Q10’s launch in United States is concerned, some U.S. vendors are also accepting pre-orders for the gadget. But, the pricing there is bit higher than what was hoped. It comes for $880 unlocked. Earlier rumors suggested that the device would be priced at a $600-$620 point. It may also come for sales in U.S. in April and many carriers will avail the device for discounted prices. T-Mobile and Sprint are likely to sell it.
