This update is available now in BlackBerry World, however, it could take up to 24 hours to fully for all users worldwide.

We have heard many rumors about BlackBerry 10 release dates in the US and UK, however, we haven’t heard anything from the Canadian carriers. Sure, they all have up preorder pages and we know they are planning on launching it, but we didn’t know when. Now we have a speculated release date for both Bell and Telus. That date is February 5th and it lines up perfectly with what we are hearing from both RIM and supply side sources. There’s no confirmation of a launch date for Rogers, but we would assume they would be launching the same day as the other Canadian carriers. We’ll get official confirmation of these dates in just 5 days, when RIM officially unveils BlackBerry 10 and announces all the release specifics.

RIM has kept a pretty tight lid on the final release details of BlackBerry OS 10 and the first BlackBerry 10 phone, the Z10. Today, BGR has not only learned some details on Z10 pricing, they have also set up a full walkthrough of all the apps, features, and screens that BlackBerry OS 10 has to offer. Pricing of the Z10 is made to be better than competitive. RIM is looking to bring the Z10 to market under the current market standard of $199. The rumor is that a $149 contract price is what you’ll be looking at upon release, possibly lower depending on your carrier.
There is a full walkthrough of all the screens, apps, and features of BlackBerry 10, including setup, BlackBerry Maps, NFC functionality, and even the calculator. The gallery totals 100 images and is available for viewing over at BGR by clicking the link below. With only 9 short days until BlackBerry 10 is fully revealed to the world, these images and details are likely the last bit of information we will be seeing until the full reveal by RIM.
