Yeah, they'll need all the luck they can muster. Might also want to appeal to the Vatican for a minor miracle.

The reason I say they have made it is actually based on the outcome of Palm..

What happened to Palm, was very quick it was clear that they were loosing the customer rapidly, Blackberry on the other hand, still has a very big fan base who buy BB devices. Maybe BB will fail in the US but around the world they are still selling and making business.

Pffffff, took long enough! However, better late than never. Wish BB nothing but the best. Been rocking my Q10 in the UK for 3 weeks now!

I wonder if Verizon's MO these days is to wait until every other carrier has the phone and all the bugs have been reported and fixed, just to keep their own complaint metrics low. They waited on the Z10, Q10, S3, S4, and may wait until mid-summer to offer the One.

I'm starting to feel that way. It seems ridiculous it took them so long to get those phones.

Must not have a lot of concern about subscribers leaving then. It irks me that AT&T gets every great phone first, but I wouldn't leave Verizon's network. Wider coverage trumps faster service for me.
