We’re just days away from seeing RIM finally unveil its last hope, BlackBerry 10. From what we’ve seen, we’re genuinely impressed with what the Waterloo company has accomplished—the extra time and care put into the mobile OS seems worth the wait. Needless to say, we’re very excited for the final Jan. 30 unveil, where we’ll probably see the company’s BlackBerry Z10.
With that said, the device has popped up in Carphone Warehouse inventory, possibly indicating what U.K. hopefuls might need to hunker down to get the handset SIM-free. According to the listing, the Z10 will run consumers £480, around $758 here in the U.S. Remember, this is off-contract pricing, so obviously there will be a subsidy in place when the device hits carriers. We’re so very close to RIM’s big day. So very close.
