Late yesterday, BlackBerry launched the all new BlackBerry Z10 smartphone in Malaysia. The BlackBerry Z10 (all touch) is the first smartphone powered by the BlackBerry 10, the re-designed, re-engineered, and re-invented BlackBerry platform that creates a new and unique mobile computing experience.
Available in two colours, Black and White, the new BlackBerry Z10 smartphone is elegant and distinctive, and the fastest, most advanced BlackBerry smartphone yet. It features a 1.5 Ghz dual core processor with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and an expendable memory card slot that supports up to 64GB cards.
And of course, most of these you would’ve already read in our post last month.
Alright, the important deets are that the BlackBerry Z10 will retail at RM2,188 and will be made available from authorized carrier, Maxis, on 9th March 2013. Meanwhile, BlackBerry fans may also pre-register/pre-order from 21st February 2013 (Thursday) onwards. Yes, that’s today! The BlackBerry Z10 will also be available from Celcom and DiGi on 8th April 2013. However, there has been no word on the respective carriers’ plans as of yet.
Here’s the best part: For BlackBerry fans who wants to be among the first to buy the new BlackBerry Z10, BrightPoint, Brightstar, and Sunstrike are running a trade up program which offers a cost-effective way of upgrading your BlackBerry smartphones by exchanging your existing smartphone. Rebates up to RM480? Hell yes!
Fans interested in benefiting from the program should first visit their Facebook page and provide the details required to obtain a voucher, which entitles you to participate in the program. With a printed copy of this voucher and your older BlackBerry smartphone, you can then attend any of the 21 roadshows being organized across Malaysia by Brightstar and Maxis.
Note: Word has it that the BlackBerry Q10 smartphone will be made available in Malaysia by mid 2013.
