The QWERTY model of BlackBerry's new lineup launches in Canada in a little more than a week on three major Canadian carriers.

Canadian smartphone maker BlackBerry (BB 1.78%) has confirmed that its Q10 smartphone will launch in Canada on May 1. Major carriers Rogers Wireless, Bell Mobility, and TELUS will offer the Q10 for $199 with a three-year service contract. The Q10 will also be available through other carriers and retail locations in the near future, with additional details to follow.

The Q10 features a full QWERTY keyboard, an important feature for a large segment of BlackBerry's loyal fan base, as well as run BlackBerry 10. The touchscreen Z10 launched in Canada in February following the January debut of BlackBerry 10.

BlackBerry has not specified when the Q10 will be available in the U.S. The Z10 launched in the U.S. in March.
