BlackBerry launched the new BlackBerry Z10 today in Canada. Who better to have at the launch in Toronto, Canada than the president and CEO of BlackBerry, Thorsten Heins and the CEO of Rogers Communications, Nadir Mohamed.
Granted there wasn’t a huge line at the doors for Rogers or Bell but both companies reported there was strong demand for the phone, with 50 percent of pre-orders coming from non-BlackBerry users according to independent technology analyst Chris Umiastowski.
The BlackBerry Z10 will be available through Canada’s major carriers Rogers, Bell and Telus. The smartphone is retailing for $140 on a new three-year agreement or outright for $600.

I know users in the U.S are frustrated with the wait to get their hands on the BlackBerry Z10. Late March is a long way away when people want a new device. There are still no details on when the BlackBerry Z10 will officially arrive in the U.S.
