Went into a corporate AT&T store today with intent and got a little more information about the Z10 than I was expecting. According to the person who assisted me, pretty certain he was the store manager, they have a meeting at the end of Feb for all employees, all stores that will be about the Z10 release and the internal reports he was hearing was that it will be in stores mid-March, possibly a Sunday release date.
Take that for what you will, since I've heard absolutely nothing online, nothing from the AT&T email sign-up, no other rumors, that is the only info I have.February 23, 2013 at 1:14 AM #197362

Makes sense, because the Torch 9810 was released on a Sunday so, March 17th 2013 marks the day!!!February 24, 2013 at 5:19 AM #197364
I still dream of the hardware manufacturers one day coming together and sticking to the carriers…as much as I blame the carriers, you can't tell me that every additional day it takes to reach market (at least in the US), BlackBerry the company is losing the momentum of its big reveal.February 24, 2013 at 5:24 AM #197365
The effectiveness of Super Bowl ad was weakened, the blog posts on BR or CrackBerry are useless to me at the moment…I'll have to go back and read through them, the main stream media and public was already bored with BB…there is no good coming from these delays and dragging of feet in the US market. Lame and absolutely pathetic.February 24, 2013 at 10:43 PM #197366
I have to agree that the delay is certainly not helping. Sometimes I wonder if its done on purpose. The days leading up to launch event ÀTT was pushing the iPhone so hard it was pitiful.February 27, 2013 at 3:26 PM #197367
Daniel, I feel the same way. If the thing cam out in the US when it came out in Canada I would have been there on day one. Now I'm thinking rather than buy early let me wait until July or August whenever my contract is up.
I probably will get it when it comes, but I'm actually thinking about waiting which is crazy given how much I watch Blackberry stuff. The US launch is a debacle.
The Superbowl ad in my view was useless, as was giving the units to US media. The reviews were actually good. Who remembers?? They have let BlackBerry slide back into irrelevance.
Yes, maybe they said we can't wait for US carriers, but then why do the Superbowl ad? Why advertise a product people can't buy. Very dumb move by the New CMO.
Also in the Keep Moving campaign I see very old Blackberry style, telling stories instead of highlighting the product.
In my view an effective ad would be to show 20 seconds of Apps (Just the screen no phone), then say "you think it's an iPhone?" Then say No!, then Show the hub and flow and show "Blackberry Z10." There is an ad the will convey the message Apps+ a great communicator.March 4, 2013 at 5:47 PM #197370
Spoke to a T-Mobile business rep last week and he said he thought he saw something for them pointing more towards the end of the month – 26th or so. He said FCC clearance has a lot to do with it. And for T-Mobile, they need time to bake in their features like Wi-Fi calling.March 22, 2013 at 5:11 PM #198113
I checked out a Z10 in an AT&T store today, and I was really impressed. Â It’s a solid-feeling phone, looks great, it reminds me of my Playbook. Â I didn’t miss the touchpad at all. Â I also confirmed what Ronen had mentioned – boot-up time is about a minute or so.
While fidgeting with the device, I tried to make it switch from LTE to 3G/H+, but I couldn’t do it. Â Did I miss something? Â Or did AT&T deliberately do this?
I’m also assuming that the the US carriers will drop their prices to $100-$150 by the beginning of May or so? Â Does anyone else agree?
I’d appreciate any feedback/input.
