    Yeah I'm waiting for Vodafone to carry the blackberry 10 but they dont have information available yet.. March will be long way to go since we've waited for so long for the January 30 release and then they gonna keep us waiting for another 2 months, they are just always behind

    Default BB10 in Australia

    optus tweeted "coming soon" with a link to a z10 pic and telstra said "not long"

    doesnt really say much i guess

    Vodafone AUS is not happening and I'm not waiting until March..so What UK (and Canadian) carriers have the same Mobile Freq as AUS?

    Koodo is $550 outright, will it work here? I do not see the spec online https://shop.koodomobile.com/koodo-c...STL1003BK.html

    I think you need the 1800 mhz LTE (Band 3?) version. The UK ones would be the best bet.

    Yeah it seems the carriers haven't been given any info on release dates. I read on the financial review that March was the month. A bit annoying to have to wait a month or so... But what can ya do ey?

    Hey guys

    Quattroporte posted over at blackberryforums.com.au some info re z10 in aus

    "Hi guys,
    Providing you with some information regarding the BlackBerry Z10 from Telstra...

    It will be launching on the Telstra network.. in both colours. However, the white Z10 is exclusive to Telstra.
    The Z10 will be Telstra 4G compatible.

    Pricing is due to be announced within the coming weeks so stay tuned"

    Sounds hopeful but at the same time I really wanted to get a white z10. Has a carrier ever had exclusivity over a colour?
    Also, coming weeks? WTF are these guys doing? I want to take a bat to something with telstra/optus written on it
    Thanked by:

    Default BB10 in Australia

    I spoKe to my Optus agent in Melbourne. He doesnt have a definite date but I think we're looking at around mid March. Probably about a month later for the Q10. Other sources have indicated Z10 and Q10 both coming to Australia for simultaneous March release. Sooner the better. Will miss using 9800 keyboard and phone. Q10 is closest replacement and what BB is about for me. I worry software set up on Z10 will be too intricate and inVolved.

    Yeah same guy said not likely in two weeks so Id say its march as well. I would have definitely bought a white one, they look so damn good. Sadly it looks as though white is limited to Telstra and buying outright might be too much money. Maybe mobicity will offer a good price

    Just checked mobicity, have both colours and are taking pre orders. 749.... priced against the iphone5. That seems a bit high

    Also just noticed the specs on mobicty for the z10 are as having a 4470 cpu not an s4 cpu as its been reported elsewhere

    I think that cpu option is right. There are two cpu and ram variants I think. North Americans get the s4 and international gets the 4470.

    Popped into the Adelaide Vodafone store and after talking with a staff member the safe option of IOS, Android and the token Windows phone is enough for them to deal with. My contract expires April 20 with them. Moving all of our devices to Telstra. Looking forward to getting BB10.

    Spoke to an optus store today, they know about it, dont have it, most likely march. Said optus dont usually go in for colours so white being only on telstra seems solid Nothing else to report

    Any model with LTE gets the s4, the 4470 is just the hspa-only variant.

    Guys just saw that mobiecity have changed their status for the Z10 from coming soon to shipping next week! I had a chat with a rep and they said they were starting to ship limited stock next week, pre orders first. couldn't say how many pre orders there are or if all their first batch have been allocated. Phones are closed till Monday but I might give them a call on Monday and see if I cant get some more details Couldn't tell me if white was available either.

    I think ill contact the carriers and see what they say about when they will have it available now that someone is finally committing to selling it

    Its 749, which is damn expensive. But sooooo sexy

    Thats about what the UK models work out to. 480 pounds = $724

    Let us know. If they're shipping next week might be worth it.

    Nearly the beginning of March, has anyone heard anymore information regarding the release. Has anyone managed to get their hands on a Z10 from mobicity and be able to provide an update on it's performance on either Voda, Optus or Telstra?
    Sony W850 --> Toshiba G500 --> Samsung Omnia --> BB Bold 9000 --> BB Torch 9800 --> BB Q10
