So I figured it might make more sense to combine these announcements instead of posting them separately  as it’s all pretty much the same anyway right?  Bell is taking pre-order now fro the BlackBerry Z10 in Canada with a launch date up there of February 5th. AT&T just announced the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 with no date, only a coming soon listed on the AT&T website… Rogers, up in Canada as well is launching both the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 with pre-orders or pre-registration starting January 31st for them. I’ve included all three press releases in abridged format for you, so read on to get all the pertinent details..
