Blackberry recently announced that customers in the U.S. can now purchase unlocked BlackBerry smartphones online directly from BlackBerry on ShopBlackBerry.com. Right on the site, you can also buy original Blackberry batteries, chargers, headsets, speakers and cases/shell for your BB and Blackberry Playbook.
The first Blackberry models available for purchase on ShopBlackBerry.com are the BlackBerry® Z10 and BlackBerry® Q10 smartphones, which are available in both the black and white color models. The smartphones are SIM-unlocked, allowing customers to use them on GSM-based 4G LTE and 4G networks in the U.S. (AT&T, T-Mobile) and other countries around the world with carriers who operate supported GSM networks.
“For years we have been offering BlackBerry accessories directly to our customers on ShopBlackBerry.com and today we are pleased to launch direct sales of unlocked BlackBerry smartphones,” said Robert Perry, vice president, Global Retail at BlackBerry. “Our first two breakthrough BlackBerry 10 smartphones are the first to be launched, and we expect to make additional BlackBerry smartphones available on an unlocked basis in the U.S., as well as other markets around the world.”
