Sprint made a weird announcement confirming BlackBerry 10. They have confirmed that BlackBerry 10 is coming with unlimited plans but they only mention the BlackBerry Q10 not the BlackBerry Z10. This odd omission makes it seem like they will only be carrying this model. Either way they don’t announce a release date just that it is coming later this year.
