Too bad a company that tried something new isn't doing well. Android rules the market now, but when $200 Chinese quad cores become available everywhere (only mailorder right now) things will get tough for Samsung and HTC too. And since 95% of paid apps are illegally donloaded I don't think Google will be interested in developing Android too long anyway.
Nobody is buying z10 or new blackberry devices. Blackberry is a dead company.
BB didn't move with the times and fell apart.... Nokia did the same and will never get back to their original position. Apple is doing the same... This should be a warning to all companies.
MOVE WITH THE TIMES OR DIE..... Even if you are king of the hill.
Although they lost 84mill they are a great Company although I don't have the Z10 or Q10 I wish them the best for the next quarter
Amazed by this particular quote of the article "this quarter it was joined by the more affordable, QWERTY-equipped Q10". How the hell is Q10 being said a a affordable device?????? it even beats Z10 in its pricing
At Last someone with a brain in this world!
LG is far better than Samsung as far as Android is concerned, Build wise and OS enhancements wise. But for a true phone experience you can't go past the BlackBerry Z10 at the moment.
i've a blackberry z10 and always have been an i0s and andriod fan but have converted to a bb ok the battery life ain't the best other than that i love it samsung claim there the best but i actually think LG are way better.
hahahahaha... nothing makes me more happy than seeing a condescending brand go down :D
the leader and Q10 sold everywhere here followed Z10 ... it looks like a blackberry should focus here because the population of Indonesia's more than 200 million people are very profitable...All people here mostly wore at least 2 to 3 major mobile phone and blackberry keep their then new iphone and samsung samsung cheap instead of mostly premium like galaxy S4 ...If compared to other smartphones such as the iphone and S4 ... blackberry much cheaper here and the bbm still be means of messaging champion here ... I'm sure the next quarter coupled with Q10 and demand Q5 will make profits rising much blackberry ...Indonesia is still very loving blackberry ...
It would be highly appreciated if you wouldn't give your opinion as a fact. Fact is Wp that according to you doesn't look good has won awards for beauty. If you had said that BB10 had more functions than Wp out of the box then i would have said in some areas yes in others no. The fact that BB was only able to sell approximately 2 million BB10 devices in q1 vs 6 million lumia wp8 devices speaks for itself. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and its seems 6 million people find wp8 attractive vs 2 million for BB10.
jeremy , 28 Jun 2013herectic i have a story to tell you you and your blackberry z10 are in the past its all about ... moreThis is GSMArena, not YouTube. This site is for educated people. Why are you talking like that? :-)
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2013Huh you think beating BB os is an achievement for wp?Considering that they haven't been in the top 3 before and they are the most growing OS in the market, then yes. WP should be proud of that.
It's only one step. They need alot.. I mean ALOT to be able to be the TOP OS. I do think Microsoft need to step up their game and keep up with Nokia in innovating the WP environment.
Heretic, 28 Jun 2013i don't have a Z10, i've seen it working and i think is pretty good, but still in diapers. ... moreI understand personal preferences but if you are talking about everyone, then... You know what would I say.

Can't argue about iphone and android, obviously they're at top of the mountain.
But i do think that BB 10 still got a shot in the game, at least it looks waaay better than WP8
