It's been 26 days since BlackBerry 10 officially launched and consumers in the U.S. are still waiting on carriers to deliver the devices to the 50 states. Some good news has crossed the wire today as Verizon's Z10 has been officially approved by the FCC. The Z10STL100-4 has been given the nod by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission, a move that is obviously critical for any device launch.
Unfortunately, this does not give us any real indication as to what the launch date may be. This is because AT&T and T-Mobile's Z10, the 100-3's, were given approval at the beginning of January, and we still haven't seen them launch officially. Sprint is so far the odd one out as it seems that they have balked on the Z10, and will instead only carry the Q10 later this year.
The launch of the Z10 in the U.S. is expected mid to late March on Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T.
