T-Mobile Confirms Date for Start of US BlackBerry Z10 Sales (There’s a Catch)

BlackBerry 10 is just about to come to the US, with sales of the Z10 expected to kick off this month. When will you be able to get your hands on the phone? We’ve heard a couple dates for AT&T, looking at both March 15 and March 22, and through we saw March 27 on a leaked T-Mobile roadmap, we’ve learned that the carrier was interested in getting it out even sooner. While it’s still not enough to give us the full picture, T-Mobile has since announced the start of Z10 sales, but with one important hitch.

T-Mobile will start selling the Z10 next week, on March 11, to business customers. While there’s no hard date for when orders will arrive, it should be before the end of the week.

Of course, we know what you’re thinking, and you want to know what this means for sales of the Z10 to individuals. Sadly, we still don’t have anything official besides it being sometime before the end of March. Still, business sales are a good place to start, and we wouldn’t be surprised to learn of T-Mobile opening Z10 sales to the public as soon as the week of March 18.
