John, 21 Sep 2013I Belive that BlackBerry have a problem with its specs and design , if they invest in top hard... moreSorry John but your economic model is not correct to say the top end spec phones carry the largest profit. It is all to do with market perception, supply chain management and brand awareness to generate such free publicity from sites like this (which is one of the best sites of its type anywhere). Costs have to be defrayed through the product life cycle and through to middle position phones etc, where sometimes they can make the biggest profit on fully amortised hardware. High end mobiles have such massive power it is covering the inherent deficiencies of Android, for example. All that power and for what reason. We are going backwards, as we did with the old MS race for faster clock speeds verses efficient operating systems. Top ends specs have not delivered the great advances on software or security - in fact the opposite. Android and Apple are full of superfluous bloatware all in the name of so called advancement, and have been publicly outed as major contributors to PRISM spy cover up. This is where Blackberry can make a change as they are still the most secure os out there, if they can get their message across to people like you.
dr.dadoue, 24 Sep 2013why donot u change the OS to android??????? it will be awesomeBlackberyy is the only secure os on the market (we hope)- Android leaks like a sieve.
I'll buy one once it available in my country, but this time I'll be waiting for price drop. Not really the size I want, still small. I'll be waiting for her bigger sibling. 6 - 6.5 inch.
very happy with my z10. the bb10 phones are a great alternative to ios and android. ready to upgrade to the z30.
Blackberry is the best... Very simple and more secure handheld... Status for G'men & active women... Comfortable keypads and many more... I love Blackberry
No fullhd, no quad core, old chipset, too big and heavy for a 5 incher. This thing is DOA
Lailo, 23 Sep 2013When will Blackberry grow up pls! 8mp when some phones are clocking 41mp!It's actually when will BB just focus on their core users and give them what they want. Just manufacture phones with a physical qwerty keyboard with also the trackpad/send/end/return/menu keys. That's what we want. We also want to be able to do a search which includes information in the notes section that they took out in OS7. Cater to your loyal customers. Most iphone and android users have no need to make the switch but the users that want the physical qwerty would come back.
Actually, it have, just didn't mentioned. I use a Z10, loaded with 10.2 OS leaked...it have wifi hotspot and wifi direct...even new security system called smart card auth., but not implement yet..software ready...hope will release soon
BB Z30 features has nothing extreme to attracted/excited new Customers.
Soon, all the current BB smartphone Values would automatically reduced to its half, once their only priceless asset "BBM" feature made freely available for Apple, Android & Window platforms.
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2013no wifi hotspotAll BB10 phones have very good WiFi hotspot. All phones can be used on regular Internet plan no BIS needed.
