BlackBerry Q10 arrives at AT&T on pre-order starting tomorrow

This week BlackBerry brings their hero QWERTY BlackBerry 10 device to the big blue network, AT&T’s 4G LTE network in the United States. This device will be arriving on pre-order first and foremost, with final in-store availability coming sooner than later. This device works with BlackBerry 10’s slightly smaller user interface as the Z10 continues to roll forth with a full-screen touch interface on several carriers since early 2013.

The BlackBerry Q10 has previously been announced for AT&T, but as it has been with several others, this network is choosing to make the most of this half of the BlackBerry 10 device roll-out. It’s fully expected that pre-order shipping will be announced separate from in-store availability, with another push coming separate from that for business-specific releases.

This device will be available on a two-year contract from AT&T for a price for $199.99, similar to that of the Z10. This device will bring a physical keyboard and a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro dual-core processor under the hood. BlackBerry 10 is the newest operating system from the company formerly known as RIM (Research in Motion), now known simply as BlackBerry.

This device works with a microUSB and microHDMI set on its left side, allowing HDMI output as well as charging and connectivity with home computers for file transfers and data sync. SlashGear has given this device a full review in its international form, this version of the device bringing essentially the same experience as the AT&T version will arrive with, sans the AT&T-added apps.
