The BlackBerry Z10 was not as successful as BlackBerry anticipated, but the troubled manufacturer is hoping that its next all-touch screen BB10 device, the BlackBerry Z30, will have a better performance when it goes on sale in its home country later this month.
We've just received word from a BlackBerry PR agency that the Z30 will go on sale in Canada beginning October 15. The phone will be available at TELUS, MTS, Sasktel, Best Buy, and Futureshop. Pricing information hasn't been released, but a quick check with TELUS confirms that the October 15 BlackBerry Z30 release date is definite, with promises of more details to come soon. Rogers is curiously absent from the list of places that Canadians will be able to purchase the Z30.
Announced last month, the BlackBerry Z30 is a BlackBerry 10.2 smartphone with a 5-inch Super AMOLED 720p display. The phone has a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 2,880 mAh battery. Pricing for the phone will be announced by each carrier and retailer.
