BlackBerry (BBRY) fans were upset to hear that Sprint (S) decided to pass on the company’s flagship smartphone. The carrier confirmed that it would not offer the BlackBerry Z10 and instead would only carry the QWERTY keyboard equipped BlackBerry Q10 later this year. According to a report from AllThingsD, however, Sprint will launch a different all-touch BlackBerry smartphone sometime in the second half of 2013. The device is described as a “follow-on handset” to the Z10 and not just a slightly modified version of the smartphone that is being offered by AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ) and T-Mobile.
