is it some factory clearance sale where they want to clear handset in stock to get rid off...
And what is the point of such superb deals if it is ONLY available in the USA? If Blackberry really wanted to sell phones -- and I think that they do -- they should have offered this deal everywhere, even in Antartica for that matter.
Blackberry sells overprices phones elsewhere in the world and then makes them available at a fraction of the cost in the USA. Weird strategy indeed.
Hi! Bough mine in UK carphonewarehouse store for 179 pounds sim free. What a bargain. I have been android user for 4 years but decided to try out Z10. What a change, loving it. Hope BB despite financial problems will stay as a brand. Regards
Somebody please tell me where I can buy it in US? Thank you very much.
Unfortunately, North America only. Canada, Mexico and US.
I can bet it'll never hit India at that price. I wish it would...

Regardless, I would buy one if it was available at that price in the UK.

Blackberry relied on people wanting qwerty for texting / BBM
The reason I never bought a Blackberry is that it had NO secondary camera when ALL premiulm devices did
So in 2013 now it come out with one is late
Had this phone been released by anyone else $199 would NOT be seen for years
This is a premium phone with premium specs
it may be the bargain of this decade
Due to poor sales since beginning, BBRY had already written down Z10 in their books long ago. Considering this, $199 is too much for Z10. It should offer for $99.

Remember that this is actually a flagship device which will remain supported by the OEM for much longer (IMO) than the moto G.
Even if offered at $99 out of contact, I'll never get this one. I have to admit, BB 10 is awesome but not for me.
Why do BlackBerry always get failed in smartphone race? It's because their flagship, including Z30 are highly overpriced when launched. Price drops significantly just a few months later but unfortunately it doesn't help much.
People out there always think when will the others do the same thing? And as always, BlackBerry far behind. Sorry for my English. Regards.
BBM is already a flop messenger. So no point in buying this dead phone at this point
plz make it available in india then it will be rocking..
plz blackberry do it .launch it in this price..
