The Z10 from Blackberry has finally arrived in the US, and is currently available with AT&T as of yesterday.  Blackberry's first attempt with the newly released BB10 OS, the company is looking to climb back into the smartphone game and improve upon the 5% marketshare they currently hold. 

The Z10 - $199 on a 2 year contract, is a 4.2" touch screen device equiped with a dual core 1.5 ghz processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of flash storage.  The screen offers 1280 x 768 resolution, at 356 PPI, and is rated for 10 hours of talk time, though that number is based on 3G connectivity - LTE connections will effectively drive down the use time that the 1800mAH removable battery provides.

As mentioned, the device is availabe online and in stores now, with Verizon and T-Mobile to follow soon.  Sprint users will have to wait towards the end of the year before they can get their hands on the device.
