BlackBerry fans in the US are itching for their chance to join the likes of the UK and Canada and finally get their hands on a brand new Z10 smartphone. So far, we’ve been hearing that March is as soon as any of the carriers will offer the device, and a leaked T-Mobile roadmap has suggested that we’d be looking more at the tail-end of March, with the Z10 scheduled to go up for sale on March 27. Now some new comments from a T-Mobile exec are making us reconsider that date, and from the sound of things the phone just might show up quite a bit earlier.
Instead of March 27, T-Mobile’s Frank Sickinger claims that the carrier is currently looking to introduce the Z10 in “mid-March”, potentially a couple weeks sooner. That’s great to hear on its own, but Sickinger suggests the Z10 could debut even earlier still, explaining, “if we are able to speed up the launch date, we will do that,” and noting that tests so far have revealed the handset to be remarkably stable.
So, no guarantees, but early or mid-March sound quite a bit better than waiting until the end of the month.
