BlackBerry Q10 goes up for sale in UK

BlackBerry Q10 goes up for sale in UK Retailers in the UK have begun taking pre-orders for the BlackBerry Q10 smartphone, the second BB10 device to be made available by BlackBerry.
The device will not be cheap. An unlocked model will sell for 579.95, but O2, Orange, Vodafone and EE will each have versions if you prefer to get on a two-year contract.

For example, TNW says O2 has unlimited calls and texts with 1GB of data for 32 per month while other carriers are more expensive. EE has the only LTE network in the UK, and their similar plan starts at 41 per month.

The device will be available by the end of the month.

Q10 devices are notable due to their full QWERTY keyboards and small 3.1-inch touchscreen. Under the hood is a dual-core TI OMAP 4470 1.5GHz, 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage (microSD slot can expand another 32GB).

Looks like a nice phone.

Somethin' I was thinking about though; everyone always complains that these phones are outdated since they don't have a quad-core processor and 8GBs of RAM and dedicated graphics, blah, blah, blah. I've yet to try a new BB so I don't know how the system runs, but being a closed-source one made specifically for the device that its on, it probably doesn't need all of that additional power? I think most high end Android phones are overpowered with features I rarely take to the limit before I get a new one. Not that I don't appreciate it but I don't see how its as necessary as everyone makes it out to be.

Just a thought (message to the h8ers).
