    Just poped on BlackBerry French site !
    BlackBerry Z10 - The New BlackBerry Z10 is Here - Global

    Warning, don't get too excited; no option to actually pre-order yet.

    As-of-date (updated, see time stamp bellow) :

    Bouygues Telecom : Feb 1
    Orange : February (no more details)
    SFR : February (no more details)
    Virgin Mobile : Feb. 13
    Phone House (retail) : PREorders open - Delivery : early March (see added capture)


    Update 2 : now the Z10 is listed in regular device menu.
    Update 3 : Phone House is pre-orders.

    Update 4 : Now LDLC opens pre-orders too; with 15 days + delay, while ThePhone House clearly states "March" as delivery date.

    Well, I believe it may depend of your operator ... what is yours ?
    But on a technical part, I think frequencies are the same (fast search, to be confirmed; asked some BE followers will update.)

    Also, BlackBerry Link (beta) is listed in the software section (both PC and Mac).

    well yes, but it is the LTE frequencies that would matter, in Belgium, now mainly 1800 Mhz are available on Proximus

    Yes it works. It's the same frequencies.
    What matters is if its simlocked, and my guess the high end Blackberrys are most often not locked (at least in the netherlands).
    If you buy it off contract it should be no problem, bring your simcard to the shop. If it works it works

    800Mhz issue. Yep, but I don't figure what the 4G is in BE. Still stone age here, anyways.

    In BE, it is the 1800 Mhz band (band 3 LTE) as far as today. So that the only phone sold on belgium ground compatible with it is the samsung galaxy SIII 4G...the guys at gsmwijzer.be keep telling me the Z10 is 3G only so I am totally ******* confused again.

    lol I was with Base previously, but they were lacking decent 3G on Lige, so I went to Proxilmus who is now 4G wootwoot
    I preordered at expansys, the date isn't posted but they told me 3 weeks from now, I didn't buy from gsmwijzer since they told me that their Z10 was 3G only but I doubt this...
