Take Away #1: While no release date has been officially announced, BlackBerry’s new Z10 touchscreen phone is said to be appearing in U.S. stores that day.

Key Facts and Figures:

  • The Z10 has already received praise from U.S. technology critics.
  • AT&T has declined to comment on the Z10’s availability
  • Verizon Wireless said last month that it expects to offer the Z10 at the end of March.

Key Facts and Figures:

  • T-Mobile USA, a unit of Deutsche Telekom AG (DTE), said on Feb. 7 that it aims to start selling the Z10 in mid-March.
  • Sprint Nextel Corp. said it won’t offer the Z10, opting to sell only the Q10, a model that comes with a physical keyboard later this year.

Key Facts and Figures:

  • BlackBerry gets about one-fifth of its revenue from the U.S.
  • BlackBerry is counting on the Z10 to revive its brand’s appeal against rivals led by Apple Inc.’s iPhone.
  • The Z10 will have already debuted in 21 countries at the end of this week, but American consumers have had to wait because their carriers have longer testing periods for phones.
