Even though BlackBerry has been experiencing some problems with pushing its products lately, the company is not giving up on the consumer market just yet. The manufacturer’s latest phone, the Z30, has just gone on sale in the US. You can grab the device from Verizon for $199.99 with a new two-year contract or you can opt for Verizon Edge for $23.06 per month. If you want the handset with no strings attached, it will cost you $549.99. Verizon will be the only US carrier to offer the BlackBerry Z30, at least for the moment.
