Sprint removed the Z10 they're only going to sell Q10 by evidence of their landings page!

I keep hearing BlackBerry 10 referred to as a "1.0 operating system". It isn't.
- It isa complete departure from the old BlackBerry Operating System.
- *It is also the next evolution of BlackBerry Tablet OS and has much in common with 1.0-2.1 of the PlayBook Tablet OS

This is a link to the safety information guides for the Z10. There are 5 models referenced here (one of the documents references two GSM models) . The only model that can run on Sprints network (CDMA) is the RFA91LW, but the LTE frequency is 700MHz, indicating this is the Verizon model. Sprint's LTE frequency is 1900MHz. I think it's safe to infer from this that Sprint will not be getting a Z10.It only counts if someone saw you.....

This is about Sprint and their contract with Apple I 100% BELIEVE.. They need to hit a certain amount of iPhone 5 sales. Apparently sales aren't going as good as Apple thought they would. Sprint blew 15 billion dollars and they know having another competitor full touch screen isn't going to help them sell more iPhones. They probably assume that the people wanting the Z10 will decide they'll get an iPhone if they don't have it. I really highly doubt they will get this phone. Maybe in a few years they'll get it since they are late with most phones anyway. But of course no one wants to wait that long. They are making a poor decision by offering just the Q10. The Z10 will sell more. Over 1,000 people have signed the petition claiming they will leave Sprint if they do not carry the Z10.
I had one rep on the message boards at Sprint say that they chose the Q10 due to what has sold in the past. The Torch did HORRIBLE with sales. This rep also wants the Z10 as well he said. But that is what Sprint is claiming which I call BS. I am staying with my iPhone reason as the Z10 cannot even compare with the Torch and Sprint knows it.
Also check out this thread and comment if you'd like.
The rep said: "Just letting you guys know that we are reading and forwarding all these topics etc to the people that need to know. It is the best we currently can offer. "
He is the one who wants the Z10 too.

My contract will be up in a few months. I'll be jumping ships to AT&T. I'll lose my unlimited data but, I don't want an iPhone. I used one back when it first came out on verizon and I was far from impressed. My 9930 has served me well but, once I got the playbook I started to like the full touch screen experience. So I want the Z10 as my upgrade. Sprint can keep their deal with the devil I'm going to the Death Star.
