When BlackBerry (previously known as RIM or Research in Motion) announced that the BlackBerry Z10 would be available in the U.S. some time in March, many wondered if that meant beginning, middle, or end of March. Well, no need to wonder anymore as a new T-Mobile leaked calendar reveals the smartphone will be released on March 27.

At BlackBerry's BlackBerry 10 launch event, the company announced its new BlackBerry 10 operating system and two new smartphones - Z10 and Q10 - that would ship with the new OS. The BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10 were given release dates and pricing information. BlackBerry fans in the UK were excited that they would be able to purchase the Z10 the very next day. Canadians would be able to purchase the device within a week, and the U.S. customers were told that the devices would hit Stateside "sometime in March".

Well, it looks like we have a pretty good idea of an exact launch date for the BlackBerry Z10 and it comes from a leaked T-Mobile Calendar showing launch dates for upcoming T-Mobile devices.

The screenshot shows a launch date of March 27. There is no listing of an expected price, but get ready to pay the same $199 Verizon Wireless has already committed to charging for the BlackBerry Z10 with a new 2-year contract (unless T-Mobile decides to sell it at unsubsidized price). It remains to be seen if carriers will launch BlackBerry 10 devices at the same time and it will be interesting to see if consumers will choose a Z10 over devices like the iPhone 5, Galaxy S3, and many others in that $199 flagship smartphone price point.
