The Q10 will be available on a two year contract for £36 per month or SIM-free for £579.95.
The 4G-enabled smartphone will be available on all major networks from the end of April.
“The new BlackBerry Q10 takes everything that’s great about the recently launched BlackBerry Z10 and adds a physical QWERTY keyboard – perfect for users who still prefer the physical push of a button when using their devices,” claimed Graham Stapleton, chief operating officer at Carphone Warehouse.
The smartphone is a return to the popular full QWERTY keyboard after the touchscreen Z10 in January.
The company, which changed its name to BlackBerry from Research in Motion, announced a figure of one million Z10 sales last month.
The company has pinned its hopes on the Z10 and Q10 in the face of competition from Samsung and Apple. The Q10 is the second of two handsets that will use the BB10 operating system.
The device has the keyboard that was the foundation for much of BlackBerry’s growth among professionals who found it useful for writing emails and documents.
The company confounded expectations on Wall Street and posted a $114 million (£75 million) profit in March for the last financial year.
However, Samsung’s profit announcement today of £5.1bn in the first quarter of 2013 provided a reminder of the gulf between BlackBerry and the world’s biggest smartphone manufacturer.
