This is the first carrier to bring the new smartphone to the US
Mobile phone users in the United States can now join those in the UK and Canada into purchasing BlackBerry Z10 devices, as wireless carrier Solavei has announced the availability of the device for its customers.The company, which provides users with wireless services on T-Mobile's GSM / EDGE / UMTS / HSPA+ network in the United States, has made the phone available for purchase through its retail partner GSM Nation, thus becoming the first US carrier to bring the new device to its users.
BlackBerry Z10, one of the most anticipated smartphones of this quarter, was launched in the UK at the end of January, and arrived on shelves in Canada starting with February 5.
The handset was expected to arrive on shelves in the US only in mid-March, but Solavei Members can already grab it, the services provider said.
The new mobile phone has been announced with a 4.2-inch touchscreen display, a dual-core processor packed inside, and 2GB of RAM. The handset also sports 16GB of internal memory, microSD memory card slot, an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, and front camera for making video calls.
"We believe in giving our members access to the latest phones and wireless capabilities," Ryan Wuerch, founder and CEO of Solavei, said.
"Solavei not only gives its members the opportunity to pay less for unlimited mobile service, but even the opportunity to earn income by sharing Solavei with others."
For those out of the loop, we should note that Solavei was launched on September 21, 2012, and that it has already got more than 120,000 members nationwide.
They can "take advantage of the only mobile phone service offering a $49 per month unlimited voice, text and data plan, along with the unique opportunity to earn recurring monthly income by sharing with friends and family through its social commerce platform," the carrier notes.
