BlackBerry 10 ‘exclusive to premium and mid-range handsets in 2013’

The new BlackBerry 10 (BB10) operating system offers consumers a host of innovative features, and it seems they will be exclusive to high and mid-range mobile phones for the near future.

BlackBerry European managing director Stephen Bates told TechRadar: “We do not see us getting to the entry level tier for some time; certainly not this year.”

Those looking to be among the first to take advantage of the new features will be looking to get their hands on a Z10 or Q10.

The former, full-touchscreen handset is available on MobiCity for $749, while the price of the alternative, which sports a physical QWERTY keyboard, is yet to be confirmed.

It is unlikely that consumers will be able to purchase a budget BB10 smartphone, such as a Curve model, any time soon.

This is perhaps as the manufacturer wishes to showcase the software at its best – when it is supported by premium specifications.
