The Z30 has the bigger screen and it a step in the right direction.

Blackberry is far from dead. They've still got billions of cash and interested buyers so posting RIP is a bit premature.

How to support the company that doesnot want to compete anymore and doesnot care for its customers?

Good product killed by bad pricing. Its market share was dwindling fast when Z10 was launched 6 months ago for $650-$700 unlocked (Indonesia). If they sold Z10 for $450 then, it might have averted the current situation. I think Blackberry will have higher chance to survive if it does something dramatic like selling unlocked Z10 for $250 and Q10 $300 now and slash the price of their pre BB10 handsets by half.

All these bb phones are well built and new OS has its pros over Android. But at what price ? ? ? ?
Still don't understand why bb is not realizing this truth. Selling a phone at high price point doesn't make it a great phone and you can not depend on so called corporate user base to re gain market share.

I'd like to see a price drop and better marketing. Otherwise BB won't sell and we'll loose a good company.

BlackBerry was a pioneer, but refused to keep up with the times. People wanted apps, even business people. People want that large screen w/o the bulky keyboards. Would've been better to either adapt or bow out gracefully. , BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Smartphone Symbian... iPhone (game changer)

Still uncompetitively priced enough so continued poor sales is a given, even in the US market.
