BlackBerry Q10 Price in UK
It was expected that BlackBerry would announce the price for its Q10 along with the Z10, but it didn't. The BlackBerry 10 smartphone will be released in the UK next month but the firm hasn't said how much it will cost.
We're sorry that we can't bring you the Q10 price but we can speculate on how much it will set you back when it does go on sale.
With a similar specification to the Z10, we can expect the Q10 to be a reasonably expensive smartphone. It does, however, have a smaller screen (due to the physical keyboard) and a dual-core processor instead of quad-core. Based on these differences, we expect the Q10 will sell for around £450, about £100 lower than the flagship Z10.
As soon as we hear from BlackBerry or retailers we'll update this article.
Online retailers have now priced up the Q10 for the UK, and it's more expensive than we predicted.
Clove has the BlackBerry Q10 at £534, the same as the Z10 while Unlocked Mobiles has it for slightly less at £529. The latter has a release date of 26 April for the Q10, the same as Samsung's Galaxy S4.
