CANADIAN PHONE MAKER Blackberry's Q10 smartphone will make its UK debut at retailer Selfridges, which will stock the device from Friday, 26 April.

The Blackberry Q10 can be ordered now at the Selfridges website, where it has been given the eye-watering SIM-free price of £579.99. As you'd expect, Selfridges isn't selling the handset on contract.

Still, this could be a price worth paying for avid Blackberry fans, as Selfridges will be exclusively selling the phone both online and in-store ahead of its general release on 29 April.

Of course Selfridges isn't the only place where you can order a Blackberry Q10. Vodafone started taking orders last week, where the Blackberry Q10 can be picked up for free in either black or white on a 24 month £37 contract.

We got our calculator out and worked out that the contract adds up to a grand total of £888 over the two-year period, so it might be worth buying through Selfridges after all. It's also worth noting that O2, Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4U will also be offering the Blackberry Q10 handset from launch.

The Blackberry Q10 is a smartphone aimed that those who are fed up with having to tap out emails on touchscreen keyboards, as it has a 35-key physical QWERTY keypad.

The handset runs Blackberry's latest Blackberry 10 operating system and features a 3.1in HD 720p Super AMOLED touchscreen, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, NFC technology, an 8MP rear-facing camera with HD 1080p video and support for 4G LTE. Funnily enough though, EE is yet to announce its support for the phone.
