BlackBerry Q10 12-month contracts starting from £39 per month

Dialaphone has a number of plans for customers looking to purchase the just-announced BlackBerry Q10 smartphone on a short 12-months contract.

The deals are only available from Vodafone and carry a total cost of ownership between £665 and £703, which translates into an effective per month cost between £55.41 and £58.58. In other words, the difference between the cheapest and the most expensive plan is a mere £3.17.

The cheapest plan offers 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB data while the most expensive one ups the number of minutes to "unlimited" and increases the data allowance to 2GB.

The Q10 is the keyboard-equipped alternative to the Z10 and has almost exactly the same hardware specification as the latter except for the latter's 4.3in display that has been swapped for a QWERTY keyboard and a 3.1in 720 x 720 pixel screen.

Other features include LTE capabilities, BlackBerry 10, BlackBerry Flow UI & Messenger, 16GB onboard storage, 2GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera, HDMI, DLNA and much more. You can check out our hands-on preview of the BlackBerry Q10 here.
