BlackBerry Z10 Gets Priced On Optus

Ahead of the official Australian launch and the arrival of company CEO, Thorsten Heins, in a few weeks, Optus has today released prices for the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone on its 4G network. Here’s how much it is and when you can get it.

Optus has opened up pre-orders for the BlackBerry Z10 today, pricing the device as an extra $6 per month (on a 24 month contract) on either the consumer-level $60 Optus Plan or the business-level $60 Business Complete Plan.

The $60 Optus Plan includes unlimited national voice calls to Optus mobiles, unlimited national SMS as well as $650 eligible call credit and 1.5GB of data.

Deliveries of the device will start from 25 March.

Alternatively, Harvey Norman has priced the BlackBerry Z10 at $733 outright. By going onto an Optus plan, the device only costs you $144 over 24 months (less the cost of the plan).
