In a surprise move of launching in the U.S. later than expected, BlackBerry revealed the pricing and expected availability of its first BlackBerry 10 smartphone, the all-touch BlackBerry Z10.

If you live in the UK and have been waiting for a BlackBerry 10 smartphone ever since RIM delayed its launch, you'll be happy to know that you'll be able to purchase a BlackBerry Z10 starting Thursday (Jan. 31). In its home county of Canada the device will be available next week. If you're a resident of the UAE, you'll be able to get your hands on the device on Feb. 10. Last but not least, BlackBerry fans in the U.S. will see a later than expected launch of the device beginning some time in March. Below is the official press release regarding availability, pricing, and carrier information:
