Sprint confirms it won’t carry the BlackBerry Z10
Sprint will be the only major U.S. carrier not to offer the BlackBerry Z10 when it hits the U.S. this month, opting instead to wait for the physical keyboard device, the BlackBerry Q10.
Sprint, the third-largest U.S. mobile-phone service, plans to offer the Q10 later this year, said Mark Elliott, a spokesman for the Overland Park, Kansas-based carrier.
That model has a physical keypad, in addition to a smaller touch screen.
“We aren’t saying there’s anything different about our customers,” Elliott said.
“We think our customers will be happy with the qwerty keyboard and touch screen on the Q10.”
