The move also follows a recent earnings report in which the company saw revenue fall 50 percent year-over-year and the company took a massive $1 billion writedown due to excess Z10 inventory.
Somewhat surprisingly given their precarious situation in the market, the devices are still highly priced. The Z10, available in white and black, will sell for $449 and will work with any GSM carrier.
The Q10, with its full keyboard that is still popular with enterprises, will sell for $550. The Q10 has a 3.1-inch Super AMOLED display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, LTE connectivity, NFC, a microSD slot and a 2100 mAh battery.
For the time being the devices are only being sold in Canada and the U.S. Check the store here.
