BlackBerry Q10 Vodafone: Late last week, we talked a bit about the Research In Motion Ltd (BBRY) BlackBerry Q10 getting ready to launch in the UK. With pre-orders underway and the phone set to ship by the end of the month, consumers in this part of the world are starting to get excited.
Of course, you are only going to be excited if the Research In Motion Ltd (BBRY) BlackBerry is available via your mobile carrier.
Fortunately, the company has done a great job securing deals throughout the UK as well as other parts of the world.
If BlackBerry has any thoughts on continuing its momentum and biting into the market share of its primary competitors, including Samsung and Apple, it will need to push its products out through as many carriers as possible.
It is being reported that Vodafone will be offering the new BlackBerry Q10 on its network in the weeks to come. While nobody knows for sure how much the device is going to cost or when the carrier will make it available, things should work out by the end of April. This will ensure that Vodafone does not lose any subscribers to the competition.
As the first Research In Motion Ltd (BBRY) BlackBerry 10 device to feature a QWERTY keyboard, it is safe to say that this smartphone is garnering a lot of attention from consumers in the UK. After all, this is a feature that users have fallen in love with in the past and have been longing for since the release of the company’s new operating system.
In addition to its QWERTY keyboard, the phone will offer an AMOLED display.

All in all, this is a big decision by both Vodafone UK and BlackBerry. For the mobile carrier, it means that people who are interested in the new smartphone will not have to make a change. On top of this, it may help attract some new customers. And for BBRY, it gives the company another outlet for pushing its newest device to the largest audience possible.
The BlackBerry 10 operating system is making headway, and the Q10 with QWERTY keyboard is going to give the company another little push in the right direction.
