The BlackBerry Z10 made its first appearance to the major operators in the UK last January 31. Those who got the device did so by signing long contracts with their respective carriers. Those planning to get the device now have the option to get it unlocked and sim free this coming March 1.
Clove has just announced that they will be offering the BlackBerry Z10 on the first day of March as an unlocked device at £445.00 (£534.00 including VAT) or roughly $828.82. Initially only the black model will be made available under this offer with the white model coming along soon.
People living in the US who can’t wait to get their hands on the Z10 and who will be in the UK this March might want to consider getting this as this latest flagship smartphone hasn’t been released in the US yet. The device is expected to hit the US market at the later part of March however T-Mobile has hinted that it may come earlier than that.
The advantage of getting an unlocked version of the BlackBerry Z10 is that you will be able to use it on any compatible mobile network. People who travel a lot will make huge savings on phone bills since they won’t need to use the roaming features instead just buy a local prepaid SIM of the country they are visiting.
The BlackBerry Z10 is the first flagship smartphone of the company since the previous model released 18 months ago. What you will first notice is the all touch user interface. It also sports the latest operating system of the company which is the BlackBerry OS 10 based on the QNX platform.
Some of the features of the device include
- BB10 OS
- 4.2 inch high resolution screen
- 1.5 GHz dual-core
- Updated BlackBerry services: Hub, Browser, Keyboard, Balance and World
- 8MP camera with Time Shift
