First BlackBerry 10 Phone Launched on February 28th, Priced at $799.99
Research in Motion’s long awaited saviour, BlackBerry 10 OS is coming this month and it will be present on the market through two phones, the BlackBerry Z10 and the X10. Well, one of them apparently leaked as data in a system, showing a launch and price date.
The device is listed in Best Buy Canada’s internal inventory system and this first BlackBerry 10 smartphone could launch in Canada on February 28th. The launch date covers Canadian carrier Bell, but it may also launch through additional carriers. The guys at BGR contacted RIM for confirmation, but they declined to confirm or deny the date. They only confirmed that there’s a lot of excitement around BlackBerry 10.
Last we checked, the swipe-based OS with 70k apps at launch will be showcased in a special RIM event on January 30th, when the new phones will also debut. We have seen a lot of pictures and videos leaking, so the devices are not a mystery anymore. RIM was also heard saying it will launch around 6 new devices this year.
