We’re almost a matter of time before the unveiling of RIM’s new handsets, and the news keep heating the web.
The Z10 is said to be Vodafone UK’s first “4G Ready” device — it will work with the carrier’s LTE network once it launches — and there will be a range of on-contract options that thankfully don’t require signing up for a special BlackBerry SOC plan. If you’re looking for no upfront cost, you’ll be paying £47 per month for 3GB of data and unlimited talk and text for 24 months.
The cheapest monthly option, meanwhile, is a £25 plan with an upfront cost of £229 that includes 100MB of data, unlimited texts, and 100 minutes of talk. If you’re particularly smitten with the white version of the Z10 that we’ve seen, we’re told that it won’t be available until mid-February. We’ll have more information, including launch plans in other regions, when RIM announces the device officially in a couple of days.
According to the verge they have received an ad from UK retailer Phones 4u that all but confirms the Z10’s imminent arrival. Additionally, it appears that Phones 4u will be offering first dibs on the white variant of BlackBerry’s latest handset.and they believes that the Z10 could be in stores by Thursday.
