    do you know the small print qualify rate plans for LT E so does this mean T Mobile will have new plans for LT E

      I would hope that just means instead of coming out with all new plans maybe they will only allow lte access on unlimited plans or higher and 2gb or lower plans won’t get lte access.

      • g2a5b0e

        Ummm…I would hope not. I shouldn’t have to upgrade my 2GB plan just to have access to LTE. That would just be silly.

    One word – AMAZING!!

    • Zacamandapio

      Those were 3 words.
      :D

  • Wasim

    No Q10?

    • thepanttherlady

      If I remember correctly (unless it changed), the Q10 will be launched after the Z10.

  • trife

    Oh look….an LTE-capable device!

    But no LTE (or even 1900 mHz) in my area yet.

      Move…lol

      White or Black? Tough decision, but hey ..at least the size is the same! LOL

      • thepanttherlady

        White is a Verizon exclusive at this time so it’ll have to be black. :(

    • Zacamandapio

      Yo tambien!!!

      • thepanttherlady

        What took you so long? =P

        • Zacamandapio

          Ha ha.
          Driving.

          But yes. I’m starving for one of these.

  • Hey Now!

    Unreal device. Thanks David for the link.

    • http://about.me/daylondeon Deacon

      what’s exactly unreal about it?

  • JayInCA

    This is the first handset to officially be marketed with 4G LTE capability. That’s really cool. I hope the variety of handsets with LTE start rolling in now. I can’t wait to see what the first Android LTE handsets are for TMO. I kind of groove on the 4G LTE logo, too. I wonder how that will look at the top of my phones screen… :)

    • http://profiles.google.com/mahmoud824 Mahmoud Shaaban

      The Note 2 and the new Galaxy s 3

      • JayInCA

        Oh, I’m aware of those two being LTE capable. But neither of them have been up on T-Mobile’s site touting LTE capability from the get-go. The GN2 was a latent discovery that was revealed, and the new LTE ready GS3 isn’t advertised on the site yet. That leaves this one as the first handset to be “mentioned” by T-Mo.

  • Mirad77

    T-Mobile better have all mid to high end phones release this year be lte capable.

  • galaxydude

    I think i will wait on Gs4. They could have made it with a lot more style just seems boring.

    • fsured

      Not everyone likes a flashy style phone. I actually like the low key, simple design, matte looking finish. Now we just need to see how the hardware and os perform.

    • tomnewtn

      As I always say, how much different can it be? A rectangle with a display on one side and a battery cover on the back. This BB looks pretty sleek to me. Understated sophistication exudes quality, professionalism. It reminds me of my wishing Nokia would have gone with Android.

  • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

    I’m all signed up and ready to get it on with the new BBZ10, amazing looking device. Woohoo! No more RIM, they are now just ‘Blackberry’ The press conference is online already..very nice.

  • tonkotsu

    what about the one with a physical keypad?

    I didn’t buy blackberrys in the past because they were iphone/android wannabes

    I want an updated curve that can compete with the big boys (as in, works like a smartphone, but has all the benefits of the curve/bold design)

    • thepanttherlady

      Not sure if they addressed this in their announcement today but the last word I read was that the Q10 (with keyboard) would release after the Z10.

      I also don’t know if all carriers will have it.

  • SeemSixty7

    Can we get it faster? Please!

  • Scott Walsh

    Who wants BlackBerry? They are just as bad as Windows Phone lmao…total yawnfest!

  • http://knightofscorpio.tumblr.com/ DtheArtist

    I think I want one. I been wanting to try something new. Sometimes once you have something so long, you want to test the waters & see how the rest of the rivers, lakes, & oceans sail. The only thing that keeps me with Android is the abundance of apps, that’s about it. Well… now that & Google Music (I’ve start using that ever since my Zune was destroyed after 3 years.

    Certain apps I use on Android aren’t available on WP8 or Blackberry. More are starting to now, but some that I have even purchased aren’t, so it’s like meh…. Tho they both seem beautiful. Especially now having Windows 8 on my laptop, it really entices me to want a WP8. With Blackberry, I wanted one years ago, but I can’t remember why I didn’t make the switch. I want either this or a 4.5″ screen WP8 device.

    • the2000guy

      I think that developers eventually will add those apps to BB world since they want to gain customers, remember some games and popular like angry birds and smurf village or fruit ninja also. If the apps are not exclusive for any Os, then we will expect to have them in BB world.

  • TechHog

    Please let T-Moble bring LTE and the Note 2 LTE update here soon…

  • JJ Clark

    Meh.

  • Timbo1

    BlackBerry’s last stand. Lets hope OS 10 is actually worth it…..
