In india no of android users stand first followed by windows phone users,i suppose in popular smartphone OS
if you don't like it please don't comment . You may have ample time to bash brands but the Target consumer of this phone definitely don't have time to explain why they will go for this phone. Life is not Cityville hence nothing comes free or cheap . To have the best you have to pay at best.
AnonD-352736, 16 Jan 2015The phone specs are not better . processor is slow . price to high...I feel Blackberry team do... moreWait.. Which of those 5 cheap mobiles with tons of apps comes with a physical qwerty keyboard?
And what does a CEO do to 'fix the app problem'?? If the app developers are stubborn enough to not develop for a platform?
The phone specs are not better . processor is slow . price to high...I feel Blackberry team does not know that at this price people can buy 5 Mobile phones with better features.
India is a android obsessed due to easy availability + thousands of useful apps.
Blackberry is now a failure only due to its pricing strategy and no focus over apps.
I do not recommend anyone to waste that much money if still obsessed with BB better to buy 9720 or Q5.
It could have been a sucess step if they have put the price around 9000-10000. lets see how much vision Mr.Chan has in understanding the need of users. he already failed in addressing the APPs issue with blackberry.
AnonD-4340, 16 Jan 2015The users here arent representative, just look at the Indian hate towards Apple in this site, ... moreI'm Indian + On this site + I use Android + I don't hate Apple.. I'm an odd man out here it seems :(
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2015Your comment is based upon false information and half lies. BlackBerry is going strong. BB has money still but the losses are continuing so sooner or later they need another cash infusion or sell off the handset division.
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2015Why even release a phone in a country that spends all day at this site complaining about specs... moreThe users here arent representative, just look at the Indian hate towards Apple in this site, but in reality Indians love Apple and especially iPad.
No matter the country, this site is infested with spec readers and people who dont realize the gigahertz war ended more than 10 years ago and that the lowest clockspeed was victorious. Its kind of wasted time to try to explain these things to most of the spec lovers, when someone think GHz=Performance its hard to know where to even start to clear up their misconceptions.
Anna, 16 Jan 2015I want to buy this one but shall wait 3-4 months for price drop. BB always reduce the price af... morePrice drop is a fact of life in any consumer electronics. It is not because of "poor sale" as you put it. Every company take the advantage of novelty at the launch, and price it accordingly.
Maybe after 5 years, you may get a BlackBerry classic free as well.. who knows :)
Tell me , what is the price of Nokia 1020 at the time of launch and now?
AnonD-352644, 16 Jan 2015Too heavily priced, thats why these companies are on the verge of selling themselvesYour comment is based upon false information and half lies. BlackBerry is going strong.
AnonD-282082, 16 Jan 2015Adreno 225?? You gotto be kiddin' me. O.oThis is not the crippled Android OS your worrying.
Android is like driving a huge bus all around town with only yourself with tons of petrol.. slow laggy and battery hungry device.
I want to buy this one but shall wait 3-4 months for price drop. BB always reduce the price afterwards for their handsets (due to low/poor sales). Forget Z10/Q10/Q5/Z30, in recent times, Z3 was launched at 16K later reduced to 10K. Passport was launched at 50K, now available at 45K. Surely, this also will be available later around 25K.
God knows price strategy of flop company.
AnonD-282082, 16 Jan 2015Adreno 225?? You gotto be kiddin' me. O.oWith a resolution of 720x720, you don't need much.. And BB (especially the classic) aren't exactly targeted at gamers..
Heh.. This new generation of kids never look at specs in the context of the device nor the target audience, do they?
Why even release a phone in a country that spends all day at this site complaining about specs and price. You guys are spoilt by cheap companies who avoid royalty payments.
AnonD-282082, 16 Jan 2015Adreno 225?? You gotto be kiddin' me. O.oWhatever keeps the price down is good for me.
I don't think anyone who has this phone will want to do much gaming on it.. heh.
Too heavily priced, thats why these companies are on the verge of selling themselves
Adreno 225?? You gotto be kiddin' me. O.o
I would opt for the Q10 which is half the price.
whwt the hell,,, bb itself is so good, but tries so hard to be hated
