We have high hopes for BlackBerry 10, set for launch this Wednesday. Surely someone has to come along and ruffle some iOS/Android feathers at some point.
A few factors will be absolutely crucial in BlackBerry 10’s success, not just the OS itself, but also hardware design, big-name app support, and price. So, er, how much would you pay for a BlackBerry Z10?
A leak purportedly coming from Carphone Warehouse’s internal system thingy has been passed to Engadget, revealing the BlackBerry Z10’s SIM free price, and it ain’t cheap.
We’re told that the BLAZ10WHI (BlackBerry Z10 White) will go for a whopping… wait for it… £479.95.
To give that figure some context, it’s just £50 less than the super-expensive iPhone 5 (16GB), while the Samsung Galaxy S III and Samsung Galaxy Note 2 would in fact be cheaper.
Hmm, we’re kinda hoping that won’t be the case, but there’s no reason to doubt that the leak is legit.
In any case, we’ll find out all the official goss on BlackBerry 10 on Wednesday. The all touch BlackBerry Z10 is tipped to be joined by a QWERTY-rockin' BlackBerry X10.
