While browsing for new info on the Q10 today, I came MobiCity's website with details on the yet to be released Q10.
In their specification list, they state the battery is 1800mAh and it doesn't seem to be 4G/LTE. I wonder how up to date this is, or whether anyone knows for certain whether these are the latest news?

That information is wrong.
It's not particularly uncommon for publications to publish incorrect details on products, unfortunately.
I would just advise them to check their details via official sources.
The following publication usually gets the details correct, and provides more detail than most:
BlackBerry Q10 - Full phone specifications
And here is some data right from the manufacturer:
Introducing the BlackBerry Q10
BlackBerry Q10: Top 5 Things You Should Know «Inside BlackBerry - The Official BlackBerry Blog
Thanks for confirmation. I thought it was suspect (or inaccurate), but as I hadn't come across the site in earlier searches, thought it might be new and potentially up-to-date.
Looking forward to the UK release in the not too distant future, I hope!

Not so fast! Depends on what country the carrier is selling the phone in. Just as with the Z10, LTE is not available in all markets and carriers, therefore there will most likely be different models of the device reflecting this as well as variations in bands / frequencies.
As far as the battery is concerned. Yes the Q10 will have a 2100 mAH battery vs. the 1800 mAH one on the Z10.

Since MobiCity is in Australia, and the launch event for Australia was either today or last Friday, I assume he is referring to the Australian market, which does indeed have LTE coverage.
The Z10 being rolled-out in AU will be the STL100-2 model, same one sold in most European countries, with LTE support.
Nonetheless it is a good point to remind people of the differences in service availability from place to place.

Are you GSM arena is correct?
It states cpu is
TI OMAP 4470
CPU Dual-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A9
I thought both Z10 and Q10 would have same CPU, isn't Z10 CPU a Snapdragon S4? What possible reason would they have to change it?
They also state the screen is Super Amoled and some people on this board claim that's made by Samsung, so I doubt Blackberry would outsource their display to a competitor.

The STL100-1, without LTE, uses a TI OMAP processor. The other LTE-capable models use a Qualcomm processor.
Re: buying from Samsung, not much you can do about it, Samsung is the largest manufacturer in the world for certain key smartphone components.
It's an even bigger problem for Apple, because Samsung actually manufactures Apple's unique/proprietary CPUs used in their iPhones. I'm sure they have the relevant contracts, but it still puts them in an uncomfy position.

"Super AMOLED" is a Samsung-specific technology. I rather doubt Samsung control 98% of the entire OLED market, though their marketshare could be pretty high in AMOLED I suppose. No one else makes Super AMOLED, it's a Samsung trademark. Other companies have their own variations, ie LG has "Ultra AMOLED".
The Q10 will have an AMOLED screen. The screen on the Z10 is a regular active matrix TFT LCD I believe.
The focus on the Q10 is keyboard and efficiency/battery life. That's why they're using the AMOLED. I'd imagine that anyone that really cared about the ultimate screen quality would want the large display anyway. Which I'd imagine is the reason they thought AMOLED would be a good fit for that product.
The Q10 is also going to have a darker display theme than the Z10, since on an OLED display, the darker areas use less power to display.
