According to a report from N4BB, Blackberry will completely roll out Blackberry 10.2.1 worldwide by the end of February. The publication also got tentative dates for the roll out process for those in the US.
The folks at N4BB, citing trusted source with knowledge of the update, said Blackberry 10.2.1 update will start with Verizon’s Blackberry Z10, which which will get the update today starting at 8am EST.
