Default QWERTY BB10 device - before June 2013

Please Login to Remove!

Says the full touch BB10 device in March with the QWERTY version before June.

QWERTY BlackBerry 10 phone will launch before June | Mobile - CNET News

I put it in rumors as I haven't seen this anywhere else yet.

Default Count me in with this reported group

"...the still faithful existing BlackBerry customers who prefer the tactile sensation of actual keys." I sure hope getting bumped to the end of the line on these roll outs doesn't mean June or afterwards.

I currently have a Torch 9810 and *love* it. I am a business executive; ability to immediately receive and send e-mails (true e-mails, not slang-infested e-mails or text messages). I have fat fingers, need a keyboard and have real problems with, say, my iPod Touch. If RIM doesn't offer a keyboard model, I'll switch to the iPhone. At least then I'll have more and better apps to choose from and the ability to buy a 3rd party keyboard.

You'll have a lot more options to choose different types of keyboard in android than ios. Also, I have big fingers and the narrow iphone doesn't do it for me like the S3 or Note 2. I finally settled on the Note 2 and just love this thing. I also have a 4S and it's now reduced to a music player. Still using the 9900 also.

Yes, a physical keyboard, but no pointing device. Keyboard is great, pointing device is awesome. Ever try to select text while driving on an iphone or android? Suicide. I give RIM another 6 months.

Any type of texting while driving on any phone is suicide and in some states a big fine if caught.

Driving and texting is a path to destruction. Not smart in any respect.
Selecting text on the PlayBook is easy once you get how; no pointing device needed.

RIM has bet the farm on BB10. I don't think there's any going back after this. Either it works and brings RIM back to relevance with the consumer or we're probably looking at a buyout by Microsoft, mostly for the patents and enterprise customer base.

This just turned up on my FB news feed from BlackBerry:

Quote:
We're declaring April "International Keyboard Month." Why? Because the BlackBerry Q10 makes its DEBUT this month: BlackBerry Q10 Smartphone With QWERTY Keyboard - BlackBerry Q10 Release - Global.
Unfortunately the web site at the link still just says "Coming Soon".

Could be. That would be cruel though, comming from BB.

I have to say that I've started testing and modifying my applications for the Dev Alpha C. It is quite a bit easier than I expected. Even an application that I never intended to support on other than the Z10 should be easy to move. Unlike the old days it is quite easy to support both devices with one code base.

So maybe not April fools.

Engadget has the story about April 30th availability for he Q10 on Rogers.

Rogers leak pins BlackBerry Q10 Canadian launch date as April 30th (update: pricing confirmed)

Just remember - a rumor is not responsible for who believes it.
