The BlackBerry 10 has already launched for most of the major U.S. carriers including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon in the coming weeks and days. The list will continue to update as the company releases the device in other countries.

It has already been released in other countries such as Canada. BlackBerry, formally known as Research in Motion, announced that the Z10 would be available in March in the U.S. during the unveiling.

Specifications on the handset include a 4.2-inch 1280 x 768 display, an 8-megapixel camera, 16GB of internal memory, microSD slot, LTE connectivity, and a removable battery. The display on the device has a higher resolution than the iPhone 5.

The Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg praised the Z10's virtual keyboard, stating that it was faster and more accurate than either of the native keyboards found on the iPhone or Android phones. Its predictive typing allows it to be much more precise, according to Mossberg.

He also said that he believes it will give newly-branded Blackberry a chance to better compete with Android and Apple and once again become a major player in the smartphone market.
