If you’re a US-based BlackBerry fan looking to get your hands on the coming BlackBerry Z10, pre-ordering from your carrier may seem like the logical route. We can tell you; however, that with the deals available from Best Buy and RadioShack, you may look to pre-order your Z10 through them instead. If you pre-order your Z10 from either outlet, in-store orders only, you are eligible for a free gift card. The Best Buy card is worth $50 and the RadioShack card is worth $30.
This offer is only available for AT&T Z10 pre-orders, since no other carriers have opened up orders. Rumor has it that both Verizon and Sprint will be opening up pre-orders sometime in the next week, with their release dates being on, or very near, March 22nd. We’ll let you know as soon as something official on these dates comes along.

With just a few short days till March, it only makes sense that carriers and retailers in the US would begin preparing for the coming launch of BlackBerry 10 and the Z10. Best Buy is the latest to start preparations, putting up a preview page on their website. This page has some interactive features and gives you an extremely good overview of what the Z10 has to offer. There’s no discussion of carriers, pricing, or release dates; however, having a page up is progress. Expect to see the Z10 hit US shores sometime between mid- and late March.

RIM is running a promotion with Best Buy on the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930. From now until June 9th, you can grab a brand new Bold 9900 or 9930 on either AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint for just $99. That’s right, for just $99 and a 2-year contract, you can get a brand new Bold. They are also running a promotion on the Torch 9810, allowing you to get this BlackBerry for free on AT&T with a 2-year contract. There’s no word on whether these are online-only or if these deals will carry over into the stores, as well. If you’re looking for a new BlackBerry, there’s no better time than now to get one.

On the heels of the PlayBook OS 2.0 launch, PlayBook sales and app development are doing better than ever. RIM has just let us know about 2 awesome achievements for the PlayBook. First, the BlackBerry PlayBook was the #1 best-selling for this week. Second, the PlayBook was the top selling tablet at Future Shop this past week. These are both huge achievements for the PlayBook, especially when you consider these two retail locations. Both shops push sales of the Apple iPad and Kindle Fire, and seeing the PlayBook beat out both of these tablets says a lot for OS 2.0.
In addition to the PlayBook sales news, RIM also let us know a little more about application development for the PlayBook. About 6,225 apps have been submitted to App World for approval. A large majority of these applications come from Android developers who are porting their apps to PlayBook. Many of these apps have already been approved into App World; however, there are still over 3,000 that RIM is still working to get approved. We have also seen lots of tweets from Android developers talking about how well their PlayBook apps have been selling. They are saying that more sales are happening in days and weeks in App World than they were seeing in weeks and months on the Android Market. We’ll be sure to keep you up to date as more good PlayBook news surfaces.

February 21st is the day that PlayBook OS 2.0 is currently slated to launch, and with that day drawing near, it’s only natural that employees who sell the PlayBook would begin training for the new OS. Best Buy has started employee training using their Learning Lounge software to get employees ready to sell PlayBooks with OS 2.0. RIM is highlighting the new Email, contacts, and calendar features, as well as the new BlackBerry Video Store, in the training information. BlackBerry Bridge will be updated sometime before the launch of OS 2.0, so we can expect that update sometime in the next few days. Who’s excited for Tuesday and PlayBook OS 2.0?

We have been hearing from RIM for quite some time that PlayBook OS 2.0 would be ready and launching in February. They never gave us a specific date in February, but I have always thought it would be mid to late in the month. It’s looking like I may be right, according to Best Buy. According to BBOS, employees at Best Buy locations all around the US and Canada are being told to prepare for the rollout of the OS for PlayBook on February 21st. I have even personally called and visited a few Best Buys and gotten either late February or the exact date for February 21 as the date from employees.
We must take this with a grain of salt, especially since we all know how carrier and tech store employees tend to carry on rumors over facts. However, with PlayBook OS 2.0 being such a big launch for the company, the employees may need to be let in on it a little earlier to get prepared. This launch will be highly publicized and marketed, something we have already seen from RIM in the first month of 2012. Now, I know most were skeptical at the launch date, especially considering RIM’s less than stellar track record of product release announcements followed by delays. It looks like this time, February may be correct and RIM my hit a specified launch date for the first time in a long time. All of this combines gives us great hope in RIM and the BlackBerry for 2012. They are finally living up to customer expectations, as well as their new slogan, #BeBold.

Best Buy is pushing tablets hard for the summer season, and why not(I have felt for a long time that the portability of tablets makes them a much better travel companion than a cumbersome laptop). This Best Buy Ad is pretty basic but I did notice they threw in a clever little bit of BlackBerry Bridge by showing a picture taken on a BlackBerry and then showing up on the PlayBook screen. BlackBerry products had almost no ad campaign support from either RIM or 3rd party companies for so long it’s nice to see the products getting some media face time these days.
