We know the Canadian carriers are on board with BlackBerry 10. Some of them are even offering pre-order info before BlackBerry 10 is even launched. The U.S. carriers have been suspiciously quiet until today. Reuters got some quotes from 3 out of the big 4 carriers and the message was quite positive.
"We're hopeful its going to be a good device," Lowell McAdam, chief executive of Verizon Communications, said at CES in Las Vegas today. "We'll carry it."
BlackBerry 10 is RIM's next-generation mobile operating platform and it is preparing to launch new smartphones later this month. Word that major carriers will offer the devices is good news for RIM.
"We're extremely optimistic that it's going to be a successful product and our business customers are extremely interested in it," Chief Executive John Legere of T-Mobile said.
"It's logical to expect our current (BlackBerry) customers will have the best BlackBerry devices to choose from in the future," AT&T handset executive Jeff Bradley said.
Obviously, missing is #3 carrier in the U.S., Sprint. Why they haven't commented on BlackBerry 10 is up to speculation, but hopefully, now that the other three have jumped in on BlackBerry 10, they will follow suit.
