Totally agree with the comment.. I would love to have Q10 but it is way too pricey compared to better phones that provide better features for much less.
Q10 is a failure because of its price..there are thousands holding their decision to buy Q10 (including me) waiting for a price cut!
I only read the other comments after i posted mine only to find everybody is saying the same thing.. BB has priced Q10 too much.. and yes i say it again Q10 is a lovely phone. In India we don't get phones on contract and if BB reduces Q10's price to something acceptable like 40% less i would buy it.
This device is not that bad as if nobody wants! In fact it is good, have used at a retail outlet. Why no one wants this is only becuase of its price. It is just ridiculously priced in India where we don't get phones on contract. Another reason is poor marketing tactic by BB. Their advertisement lack emotional appeal to that of Apple and Samsung. Thats it! In functionality, it can do all the things that Apple, Androids can do. But anyways all the best BB.
Blackberry should know that people are not idots and fools to buy a phone at double its price. Q10 is a lovely phone which i desire to buy but not at the price its selling at obviously. BB should reduce its price by 40% only then it would sell !!
Why people complain about the price? Let me give the example of my country, Portugal...
BB Z10: 739,9 euros without contract; 109,9 euros with a two year contract and paying 69,9 euros a month...
BB Q10: 759,9 euros without contract; 389,9 euros with a two year contract and paying 69,9 euros a month...
Compare with what happens in each country and conclude...
-Complicated with no home button.
-BB is coming to apple and android. Therefore, completely lose its market.
Was a fan but had to move to the better device!
BB is asking too much for what they give. Nothing impressive in BB. I will buy if I can get it at half price....
A lot of people want qwerty phones, and a lot more need them...but for price for god's sake, they're trying to save themselves selling only a pair of those Q10
still using the first Onyx is (Bold 9700) after 4 years. everytime i have to type in my galaxy note for more than 5 minutes chatting im missing typing in my blackberry which i could types without even looking at the screen or i can do it while driving (ssshhh dont tell anyone)
You can buy the Q10 for $79.95 with a 2 year plan at Bell. The iPhone 4S will cost you $99.95 and the Galaxy S4 $179.95 with a 2 year plan. Don't understand why people complain so much about the price?
goron, 30 Aug 2013alot of people still want qwerty physical keyboard, but BB10 smartphone is too expensive Fully agree with you absolutely.
alot of people still want qwerty physical keyboard, but BB10 smartphone is too expensive
the failure is attributed to the high and mindless pricing of blackberry. Article should have spoke about that, not this way, degrading the physical qwerty phones.
im trying to get that bbq 10 by all means next month hope it will be worth all the cash im spending ...i am giving up samsung this year i had that galaxy s3 ..trying to switch off the game a little bit
I just can't understand. bbos10 is not superior to ios,android and wp8 yet bb's device are more expensive,why?
