BlackBerry Q10 arriving in India June 6th

BlackBerry Q10 comes with big plans: the smartphone will land in India this month, more exactly on the 6th. The device is going to be unveiled for the first time on Indian soil during an event happening on June 6. The price of this model continues to remain a mystery, but it will hopefully be revealed during that event. Until we get official info, people are speculating that the Q10 may cost Rs.35-40K, which is cheaper than the Z10.

The BlackBerry Q10, QWERTY variant, will be launched a day earlier. Which has made many think that the model would arrive in India after that. And now that’s become true.

On American soil, the price tag of the Q10 will be more expensive compared to the Z10 by $50. More precisely: the device will cost $249.99 if you get it via contract. Coming back to the speculated price of the Indian variant we discussed earlier: Indian journalists are saying that the smartphone can cost 35,000-40,000 INR, which is about $619-707.BlackBerry-Q10

Speaking of which: the BlackBerry Z10 saw an official launch in India earlier this year. And its sales have been very good. Something that has made the BlackBerry manufacturer rejoice, since it meant that people who used to own iPhone handsets chose the Z10 instead. Or will do that soon once the Q10 comes in the country. One of the factors that will make those people buy the latest BlackBerry: the possibility to use a QWERTY keyboard with the Q10.


Here are the specifications of the phone: a 3.1-inch HD Super AMOLED touchscreen, 2 GB of RAM, BlackBerry 10 iOS, 16 GB of internal storage space (plus microSD card support for a total amount of up to 64 GB), a 2,100 mAh battery, a dual-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A9 TI OMAP 4470 processor, an 8-megapixel camera on the back plus a 2-megapixel camera on the phone’s front side and a PowerVR SGX544 graphics processor unit.

The body of the BlackBerry Q10 has the following measurements: 119.6 x 66.8 x 10.4 mm. Connectivity is served via A-GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and one microUSB port. As for features, you will get a compass, an accelerometer and many more.
