Verizon selling BlackBerry Z30 as an exclusive in November: $199 with contract

The BlackBerry Z30 could be the last handset ever made by the company and it has a big supporter in Verizon Wireless. The carrier confirmed on Monday that it would be the exclusive network operator to sell the Z30 in the U.S. with a $199 contract price or $22.91 a month over 24 months through the Verizon Edge program.

The BlackBerry Z30 is a larger version of the Z10, using a 5-inch 720p display, faster processor and a 2880 mAh battery that the company claims can get up to 25 hours of mixed use on a single charge. Given the uncertainty of BlackBerry’s future as a company, I’m not anticipating record sales for the new phone.
