Crazy price!
Who buy it will soon regret because as far as I know, BB phone is the fastest price drop in the market!

referring to articles on smartphones prices ,
a 250 $ is a realistic price for a smartphone.
Blackberry hopes to compensate for their bad samrtphone business results but they will not escape to the business rule that the demand on the market specifies the price and not the costs they have made to develop the phone.

And for everyone else, 530 is the right price, it were to be below 299 like some mentioned that's too cheap they wont make any money from it, 499 will put it in the low end smartphone category so in order to be placed in the high end smartphones category 530 IS JUST ABOUT RIIGHT!... at the end of the day most of you guys get it on contract so why u complaining?

Wat on earth is BB doing? £530 for wat? A so called qwerty phone wit no call/send botton, no menu botton, no trackpad, no back botton not even an End or cut botton, somtin must be wrong somewhere, I tink if dey r tagging Q10 for around dat amount den I av to stay wit my 9810 (touch 2) for more years to come bcuz its d best BB I've ever used. I mean not to spoil tins for BB, I love BB and dat is wat am still using but blending wit bottons without trackpad will really really be somtin funny expecially wit BB phones, all d same I wish dem (BB) Goodluck and success.

Lot of people have waited for this one. I predict BB will sell somewhere between 5 and 8 million of the Q10.

Z10 in US? I don't think it can match iPhone in terms of selling.

Only here in Southeast Asia Blackberry selling like hotcakes.

I'm thinking not many individuals will buy this, if any. Be interesting to see how it does on a corporate level - whether or not they're willing to go back to BB...

At my job they've started pushing users to Windows Phone. We have most options available (iPhone 5, Note etc) and users gets to choose what they want, but WP is a working beast and so office compatible. I think it's only a matter of time before WP takes off.

I agree £530 seems high
I was expecting a £350ish price tag

Blackberry will just humiliate themselves releasing this device. Already the z10 is nothing special

Even Blackberry Lovers would make a fool of themselves if they spent 500 Pounds + and get this.
I cant see this winning any market share for RIM.....overpriced CRAP.
