BlackBerry Z10 hits AT&T March 22 for $200, pre-orders begin tomorrow

BlackBerry Z10 2

It’s going to be a good month for U.S. BlackBerry fans.

AT&T finally announced its official launch details for the BlackBerry Z10 this morning: It will be available on March 22 for $200 with a two-year contract. Pre-orders for the phone kick off tomorrow on AT&T’s website.

BlackBerry’s latest flagship phone, which I called a boring beta in my review, has been available in other parts of the world for weeks now. T-Mobile will also offer the Z10 to its business customers today for $249.99.

The BlackBerry Z10 reportedly sold out in certain markets when it launched, so it’ll be interesting to see what kind of welcome it gets in the U.S. Given just how quickly the U.S. smartphone market has jumped to the iPhone and Android though, I don’t expect any major success stories from the Z10’s launch.
