BlackBerry 10 Backed By Major UK Networks

BlackBerry’s long awaited BB10 operating system is being backed by the UK’s major mobile networks.

Three, O2, Vodafone and EE have all released statements today confirming their intent to range the new BlackBerry 10 handsets once they have launched on 30 January.

tweet from O2 confirming its intentions to support BB10 was posted on its account earlier today stating: “Really happy to say we’ll be selling BlackBerry 10 in early 2013. Watch out for more info soon.”

Three released a message reading: “Three can confirm it intends to range BlackBerry 10 in the UK.”

Vodafone also signalled its involvement with this statement: “Just a quick note to let you know that we’re planning to offer the new BlackBerry 10 when it launches…We’ll release more details on pricing and availability after launch.”

Last on the Bandwagon is EE which told TechRadar: “EE can confirm that from launch it will range BlackBerry 10 for consumer and business customers on its super-fast 4GEE service, as well as its Orange and T-Mobile UK brands. More details on pricing and availability will be announced in due course.”

It’s unclear yet as to whether BB10 devices will be sold from launch and none of the network providers confirmed any details regarding release dates or price plans.

The L-series is the most leaked handset of the prospective BlackBerry 10 line-up, but if rumours are anything to go by users can also expect another device featuring a QWERTY keyboard.

Despite some bad press in recent past it’s good to see BB10 already has the support from network carriers, which is the first big step to possible success for the Canadian firm. Check back to the Dialaphone blog soon as we will bring you a full walk-through of BB10 in the coming days.
