Carphone Warehouse has opened its pre-order pages for the BlackBerry Q10, the second BlackBerry 10 handset to be released, this time with a more traditional Qwerty keyboard.

Expected to be available in the UK from the end of April, Carphone Warehouse is offering the phone for free on a £36 a month 24-month contract. It is also available SIM-free for £579.95.

Contracts will be available through the high street retailer from O2, Orange, T-Mobile, Three, EE and TalkMobile. The EE contract will include 4G LTE connectivity as the handset is 4G-enabled.

As an incentive to go with Carphone Warehouse, it is also offering a free wireless Bluetooth speaker worth £79.95 to the first 2,000 Pay Monthly customers to pre-order the Q10.

"The new BlackBerry Q10 takes everything that’s great about the recently launched BlackBerry Z10 and adds a physical Qwerty keyboard – perfect for users who still prefer the physical push of a button when using their devices," said Graham Stapleton, chief operating officer at Carphone Warehouse.

You can pre-order the phone and find out more information from the retailer's dedicated webpage at carphonewarehouse.co.uk.
