RIM are holding a press event at the end of this month where they'll unveil their new Blackberry 10 platform and the smartphones that will launch the operating system.
The Blackberry Z10 is one of the Blackberry 10 launch devices and we've heard a lot about over the last couple of months. Now we've learnt that Vodafone will be selling the smartphone and that it'll be available to buy on January 30th.
A leaked Vodafone memo has unveiled that the company can begin selling the smartphone from 5pm on January 30th, which we presume is when RIM's press event will conclude. Initially, Vodafone will only be offering the Black version of the Z10 with the White model becoming available in the middle of February.
Currently, we don't have any details on the prices of the Blackberry Z10 on Vodafone at the current time. However, we do know they'll only be offering the smartphone on Pay Monthly tariffs and rumours suggest that the Z10 could be Vodafone's first 4G smartphone.

Well, firstly the Blackberry Z10 will run on RIM's new Blackberry 10 operating system which includes a whole host of innovations and has gone down very well with industry experts. But what about the specification of the Z10 ?
