BlackBerry CEO Heins excited about high-end BlackBerry model coming this holiday season
The CEO confirmed that the company's goal is to build three tiers of products, each with an all-touch and a QWERTY-equipped model. All of the phones will have the same 4.2 inch screen and resolution found on the Z10 to allow developers to write apps that look consistent across the board. While we are excited to hear about a new high-end BlackBerry 10 model for later in the year, we wonder how many people planning on buying the BlackBerry Z10 tomorrow when it makes its U.S. debut via AT&T, will now hold off to wait for the upcoming top-shelf BlackBerry 10 device.

I can't buy BB even if it was $300 because of the stupid limitation on mail on the devices that i saw when it was popular. Only Inbox visible and everything routed through RIM network for outgoing mail. Not sure if they improved on this in recent model.

Because the smartphone industry revolves around the US and its carrier vice grip on its consumers...right?

Heins can be excited all the way he wants, unfortunately at this moment we all only excited in SGS4 and HTC One, and later iPhone 5s/6, Note3 and Motorola X... poor BB10...

Apparently, Heins isn't aware of the Osborne effect.

corporate doesnt always mean boring & conventional and thats exactly what bb hasnt changed for the new bb10 devices... even so caled corporates are embracing iphone or android...they need to launch great (if not stunning) looking "consumer" devices...even bb10 user interface is dull....but hey, thats me....

IOs is so boring. Apple design is so boring. Android is so boring. Blackberry 10 is a fresh new idea that will be a big success. Blackberry will be here for a very long time. GO BLACKBERRY!!!!!

I would never ever buy this piece of garbage phone. Who in the world still uses blackberry anyway. It's a failing product and going to it's grave and it cannot come soon enough!

Your comment seems immature. Obviously plenty of people use and love Blackberry. What's actually driving your passion against BB?

If the BB Z10 is $700 how much will the "High-End" Devices cost?
