11 February 2013Mashable:
The handset will be available Monday through Solavei’s retail partner GSM Nation for $999. Orders can be placed starting at 8am EST and if ordered tomorrow Solavei tells Mashable the handset will arrive in customer’s hands on Wednesday.
That is pricey, but apparently Solavei thinks people will pay a premium to get the phone now, rather than in “mid-March” — the timeframe quoted for availability at carriers you’ve actually heard of.
Personally, I don’t think anyone will be buying the Z10 in March at normal prices, let alone today at a ridiculous markup on a tiny carrier.
