The white edition of the BlackBerry Q10 has landed in the UK, teaming a physical QWERTY keyboard with the rejuventated smartphone-maker’s user-friendly, altogether more fun BB10 operating system.
Carphone Warehouse is offering the handset free on a range of tariffs starting at £33 per month over 24 months on a choice of Three or Vodafone.
Choose Three and you’ll get unlimited texts, 500 anytime any-network minutes every month and unfettered mobile data use.
Opt for Voda and you’re also looking at unlimited texts, as well as monthly allowances of 600 minutes and 500MB of data.
Both networks' offers include a free Bluetooth speaker, normally priced £79.99.
Fresh from setting a sales record when it landed in Selfridges last month and touted by some as the handset to bring BlackBerry back from the brink, the Q10’s feature set includes a 3.1-inch touchscreen and dual-core 1.5 GHz processor.
Its spec sheet also takes in 16GB on-board memory, 4G LTE support, a redesigned keyboard for faster typing and an all-new version of BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) that includes support for video chat.
