BlackBerry Q10 comes to Canada on April 30th, U.S. launch still up in the air

BlackBerry Q10 Release Date

Canadian BlackBerry (BBRY) fans who want a new device with a full QWERTY keyboard won’t have much longer to wait. MobileSyrup has captured a screenshot from a Rogers Wireless internal document showing that the QWERTY-equipped BlackBerry Q10 smartphone will launch on April 30th. While Canadians will get the new device by the end of the month, we still have no official word on when Americans will be able to buy the Q10, although recent rumors have claimed that it will launch on T-Mobile at some point in May. The Q10, which is designed to look more like iconic pre-touchscreen BlackBerry phones, includes 3.5-inch display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage and a 2,100 mAh battery.
