BlackBerry Q10 alternatives?

I like the look of the BlackBerry Q10 and really want a QWERTY but are there any cheaper alternatives?

Err, BB Bold 9900...I guess.

In other words, not really.

Looks? Right... There's nothing with the same quality keyboard as the Bold 9900 - and from all I have read, the Q10 is very close. You can get a HP Pre 3 for £120 if you keep your eyes peeled. Excellent keyboard, fast, and similarites to the BB OS... Or you go way back in time to Nokia's E6/E71/72... great keyboards, great battery life, but slow by today's standards...
There's also the Motorola Pro+... the only Android close to that BB-feel. But unfortunately, the keyboard is its weakness. It has some very handy shortcuts like BB, but the quality is cr*p...uneven illumination, uneven feedback. Great phone otherwise; very solid and ergonomically pleasing. And also possible to get for sub-£150 new...
