The BlackBerry Q10, the first BlackBerry 10 device with a physical keyboard, will go on sale at T-Mobile U.S. retail stores beginning June 5. The phone will cost $99 down with 24 monthly payments of $20. Business customers had first crack at the Q10 earlier this month, but individual customers can purchase the phone next week.
As we've covered in the past, the BlackBerry Q10 runs the newer BlackBerry 10 software but puts it in a hardware package that is more familiar to BlackBerry's traditional audience. The phone has a portrait QWERTY keyboard below a 3.1-inch AMOLED touchscreen with 720x720 resolution. The phone also has 2GB of RAM, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera, and 16GB of internal storage.
T-Mobile customers will also be able to use HD Voice when communicating with other T-Mobile 4G devices. The phone also supports 4G LTE in a handful of U.S. cities.
