Why do they need to talk up the sales? truth is they sold almost nothing. This is just a scene play from a bankrupt company who need to show results fast to get continued credit for operational expenses.

bb nd nokia were in the same situation ...late to move in the then new change...touchscreen nd apps...instead of hurring for the touchscreens in the game without much potent under the hood like non touch optimized,no icons bt just plain letters lke crappy OS for keyboard in S60v3 S60v5...they bored users nd lost their feeling of leading OS...INSTEAD...They sud have waited nd revolutionized lke BB...until they got potent to compete under the hood...BUT ONLY FOR SHIT they abandoned the tradename of SYMBIAN nd moved waste their energy nd time for such in the dark WP...

Not sure where they get these figures from?Where i work we havent sold one handset so far?Dont get me wrong its not a bad piece of kit but for me its priced too high.£500 is far too expensive and to try and compete against the iphone or the s3 is just plain stupid.I suppose its nicer to use and not as ugly as windows 8.

the BB is a 2011 or 2012 phone with its specs. only thing they can use as a selling point is its OS, which i dont know if it is any good, but for all i know it could be amazing, i think the ubuntu phone will be better then this though in October.

I quite like the z10. Now I use a nexus 7 at home as a tablet I'm in the market for a small phone. Might give this a go as the specs look good and its been a few years since I had a 8510

I don't think anyone was under the illusion that previous versions of Blackberry devices was "better" than iOS or certain android devices. But it all comes down to SUITABILITY and for the smart ones, COST OF OWNERSHIP (COO). From where I sit Blackbery has the best data plan that suits me at the moment. One persons needs and wants are not another's. So some people should calm down and evaluate their own needs when plunking down money for a new gadget instead of falling for hype or fads. Personally I am not into alot of apps, plus I own a good PC, Laptop, 10.1" tablet, 3 2 smartphones. So personally my needs are different. I think I might also be going for the Z10, because, in this device, my wishlist for a phone has been fulfilled by Blackberry .ie hotspot, f/f camera(for video chat), a good touchscreen(IMO physical keyboards are a thing of the past for masses), aesthetically pleasing, etc. Plus they even surprised me with features I wasn't requiring but I think will come in handy..
HOW MANY RANDOM APPS DO YOU NEED? Keep in mind alot of these apps drain battery in various ways, might cause security issues, etc.. SMH.

That OS you're pertaining to having a hard time cathing up... they should actually learn from Blackberry.

After SONY experia, coming soon S4.... more choices man :)
