RIM is set to launch its next generation BlackBerry 10 OS this Thursday, January 30th in London. The company will also launch the first pair of BlackBerry 10 handsets called Z10 and X10. Last week we reported about the leaked press shots of the BlackBerry Z10 and its expected release date for the Canada markets. One of the unanswered and unconfirmed questions about the BlackBerry Z10 is how much it will cost exactly. Well, thanks to a leaked screenshot of Carphone Warehouse inventory system.
Carphone Warehouse’s inventory system leak suggests that RIM will charge £480 (that’s approx. $760) for a SIM-free edition of the upcoming BlackBerry Z10 phone. The inventory system has listed the white variant of the device with product code BLAZ10WHI. According to the previous rumors, the Z10 should be made available for less than $199 on contract in the U.S. markets. So far, all the major U.S. carriers have confirmed their support to carry the BlackBerry 10 phones over their networks.
For a reminder, the device will feature the following features:
# 4.2-inch 1280×768 touchscreen
# 1.5GHz dual-core CPU
# 8MP primary camera
# 2GB RAM
# 16GB eMMC
# NFC, micro USB 2.0, Wi-Fi
# 1800mAh battery
BlackBerry Z10 is also rumored to feature a Siri-like voice activated personal assistant, and a world class BlackBerry browser. Hopefully, we will be also able to confirm a price for the BlackBerry X10QWETY phone as well. We’ll bring more details as we get them.
