The price tag is killing it and scaring interested buyers to even get near it. They never learned.
A Blackberry user here but i'll be honest. Seems there going thru a spiral failure here.
I will buy a Q10 if it's about US$199.99 brand new, as a spare phone when I needed to type a lot.
If it's still at the flagship price, I will still buy it eventually, when BLACKBERRY files chapter 11 and need to liquidize their stocks
Blackberry made the same mistake as Microsoft did with the Surface. Out of greed and also stupidity, they put a very high price tag on devices meant to drive the adoption of their new, unestablished platforms, which are not bad platforms but it doesn't matter given the existence of Android and iOS which dominate the market.
Q10 does not make 10 top smartphone of 2013 yet it is more expensive than them all. Been wanting to upgrade from my 9900 to the Q10. But for that amount i would rather go for something else.
Do no have a problem the phone . Q10 's a very good phone but the fact it is a price is not ok.
It is too big price for Q10.
I honestly have a problem with the management and why will you die.
I sincerely regret this because I love the Blackberry phones.
It would be great if they just cut their losses and do a HP Touchpad job on this by deciding to sell it in a fire-sale style of way. That will certainly move them.
Demand has come down considerably for these devices. Big OS' like android and ios just have alot more to offer than BB,(shared opinion by 80-90% customers) expensive often unreliable devices need to be kicked out. This will hopefully drive BB to innovate and overcome competition, better for consumers inevitably but not good for BB!
Its rediclously expnsive! no doubt it looks sexy bt that kinda money fr that .. naaa
I love qwerty keyboards this is not what fails them, what fails them is the stupidly high prices its enough to put anyone off you. Lower your prices BB you need to I mean there is still a market for qwerty your just to expensive.
It's not the damn qwerty. Some of us actually love it. Its the damn price and the battery life that is loudly screaming "STAY AWAY FROM ME"
yes, BB Q10 is actually a very good phone just lacking few things in it:-
1. It should have 2sim (standard size sim) facility with options of switching off either one with on/off timer
(actually every BB phone should have this feature)
2. It should have a physical call recieve & end buttons.
3. Its price is very high in this fast & competitive market.
4. Its should host more sensors as galaxy S4 or Note
blackberry q10 is an excellent phone...the only problem is that it's price is $500+......... i love the phone and i wanted to buy it but the galaxy s4 mini is even cheaper than it
PC, 30 Aug 2013So how much is it then? Did you actually check before making this comment?It costs 49000 here in India.
I know a lot of people who'd rush to buy the BB Q10 if the price is lower!
If the iPhone 5 costs 180 USD to produce, Why is Blackberry selling at a premium when they might not even be open tomorrow?
