"We're trying to get it as close as we can," Heins said in an interview this week with The Associated Press.
I agree the article is confusing but it does sound like he gave the quote this week, like I said before Thor really wouldn't have talked about Q10 until Jan 30th.

darkehawke I see what you were talking about I found this article dated in October Thorsten Heins Confirms BlackBerry 10 Full Touch & QWERTY Touch Eight Weeks Apart | BlackBerry Empire
However could he have said that in two diffrent interviews?? That's the question.

Well to put it bluntly: I am disappointed and disqusted by the Q10 availability date and that no date has been set for an update to the three PBs that I own. Blackberry continues to disappoint me and I am one of the faithful and was really looking forward to the Q10.

Doesn't affect me, since I won't be able to upgrade for nearly a year. That said, think many in the US will be turned off by this. We'll see whether or not this backfires on BlacBerry.

I echo the sentiment that this is disappointing. I left blackberry just under three years ago for the iPhone. For the past three years I have been happy with the iPhone but just a bit underwhelmed by the iPhone 5 so I was thrilled to hear of the new qwerty blackberry. I was very much looking forward to coming back to blackberry. But, if in fact this phone isn't released until June, I will be less likely to return as there will be a new iteration of the iPhone by then (among other options). Further, (and my memory may be sketchy on this point) one of the reasons I left blackberry to begin with was just general disappointment with the timing of releases. A product would be announced but then there would be a long wait before I could get one. Frankly, over time one just loses interest.

I'm about to explode. This had better not be true. Delay after delay. I already have a bunch of friends asking me about BB10 because I was so hyped before the launch and how great it will be. Now when I tell them it's coming in March they just laugh. And now the Q10 in May/June?! Not a good move at all whatsoever. Can someone please explain to me why it would be a good idea for them to hold it longer (other than the whole apps issue)? People will be turned away because the new Galaxy phone is coming in March. Other possible consumers are forgetting about the phones completely.

i would assume it's marketing, selling two flagship phones at the same time might not be a good idea, so i assume they are separating the release of the devices. Lets be glad its not being pushed to august/september.

This says TMobile is trying for mid-March (or about 4 weeks from now):
T-Mobile Hurrying to Offer BlackBerry Z10 Ahead of Rivals: Report
What makes this any more or less valid than people claiming "June"?

Yeah i just found that out after i wrote that. I hope verizon releases in april. I'm buying it at full price so it's not like my contract is already up. If im going to be spending 600 dollars for a phone i would like to have it asap lol.

I was just looking at my Android slider, and I have to say I'm quite bored with it at this point. I'm really on the fence here. I need that awesome keyboard, but I'm wary of OSX. I'm used to the Android OS. Although it's not perfect, it's integrated. When I used to reset my Torch, because it was unlocked, I'd have to call up T-Mobile to adjust the settings accordingly in order to use the phone, which is a whole annoying process. I just like the idea of only having to sign in to my Google account and being basically set. Sigh, what a dilemma...

It has been assumed for many months the Q10 would be released about 2 months after the L10. The L10 (in the U.S.) will be released in the next 4-6 weeks. (Mid March or end March) 2 months after that is end of May. That means it could slip into June.
I don't know if a new iphone will be out by then - but the SIV (S4) will almost certainly be announced and maybe out by then. Of course those won't satisfy those who need physical keyboards.

Don't be surprised to see both the bb Z10 and the Q10 released in the US a lot sooner than what is in the press ... its being fast tracked! In the meanwhile, US launch will likely see over 120,000 apps and perhaps even a minor software upgrade ....
