BB Z3 already available in india on online store like flipkart before two months ago. They released spec details now???? What is happening....
blackberry has made a great package of new OS and the new hardware . I am using the Z10 now and its one of the best productive phones in the market . I am not biased towards BB but its OS is better than IOS in terms of productivity features .
APPs are also on the acceptable level and growing everyday .
Now wait for the BB classic in november . It will create the storm and ppl who depend only on advertisements will take not of the phone .

The initial time week with it was a disappointment as I didn't fully understand how to operate it but once I got used to all the gesture based OS, I have working faster than ever. Their push email is second to none.
You could have done this 3 years ago. This could had change the company's faith.
"If you are going through hell, keep going"
And all of ya Android and iOS fanboys, the thing is: KING has not given up yet.
All of you saying BB will quit, take a look at IBM, Apple and Sony. In 1993, IBM was about to exit. Today, they are the biggest manufacturers of MainFrames and Supersomputers. Analyst said about Apple in 1996 that If company survived, it would be no less than miracle. Today, Apple has the biggest value of Market Cap.
Give it a chance folks, just don't go with the notion that BB is a dead company! Don't we all love a comeback story?
To me, the design is certainly gorgeous (yeah, it's a rectangle I know but it's the proportions that make or break it.) The battery is pretty good too. Am just hoping that the screen - despite being modest on specs - will be good enough for outdoor viewing. I have resigned that their camera is crappy so I won't bother about that. Yet for a phone under $200, it's not so bad.

Android, iOS & even Windows Mobile have overtaken Blackberry.
When they released BB10 it was late by over a year, their handsets where way over priced on launch, I could go on but it bedtime so can't be bothered.
But the fact is Blackberry got to complacent, didn't keep up & now are suffering for this & eventually Blackberry will exit the smartphone market, and nobody will miss them apart from you that is with your dead in the water device :).
Blackberry just can't get it right, can they? First they relaunch internationally with the overpriced Z10 and even more overpriced Q10 with disappointing (read: fail) results. Now they make a splash with an extremely low priced decent handset (decent for BB and the decent for the price) but they only release it in one country? *Face palm*
BlackBerry's are very expensive this season :)) i might stick with strawberries
AnonD-125478, 29 Apr 2014man, that bundling is not like at&t or another carriers, its only for features given by th... moreI know pretty much, but hate this kind of benefit never applied on Indonesia, causing many of us changing operators unconditionally.
MasEnha, 29 Apr 2014SHOULD be $50 with 2-years of contract cuz bundled by Indosat or XL.man, that bundling is not like at&t or another carriers, its only for features given by the carriers like cheaper data plans, free voice and text messages for some times, and its not locked...buying this bundled with Indosat u still use another carriers without anything to unlock

Government SHOULD have their own security system instead of using one provided by others.
[deleted post]Spoken like a true intellectual light weight. In fact the BBOS is probably the best out there at the moment and certainly the most secure. Android is probably the most dangerous os for sensitive corporates and Governments. If your intelligence is limited to games than most Android games go ply on BBos 10.2.1. The BBZ10 is probably the best value for money on the market right now and is far superior to some Android devices that are much more expense. I have a Z30 and very happy with it, and in fact many Android addicts are surprised just how good a decent os can perform. The Z4 is basic but will capture market share for sure. Presale in JKT going for Rp1.7 million which is great value for anyone. I hope BB does well because we need the OS to survive in today's world of insecure Android and a lethargic Apple ecosystem.
Don't expect higher specs, this is for Emerging markets only, will never compete for the upcoming Note 4 or iPhone 6 etc. #BB10 OS don't need of Quad/Octa cores because it was simply very Fast and Smooth. Below $200 price range only. BlackBerry bring the color White BlackBerry Z3 also! Planning to give all my family members. Thank you! "You want best in class security? Just Choose BlackBerry" :)
Bb10 is best os at all pity that company had no luck with their leaders I sold my bb and went back to android because of negative words of Mr. Chen
