LOL! The Z10 prices are $20-60 higher than the vast majority of online retailers. Q10 price appears very competitive so far, but have a feeling that the online guys will soon drop it even further to below $500.

The Z10 is only $362.50 at Negri Electronics. BlackBerry is fooling themselves with this absurd pricing. The ultimate example of incompetence.

I'll buy the Z10 for work if there is a $99 fire sale playbook style.

Give it some time. I imagine that within a month or two, the $99 specials will arrive. By January, 2014, the phones will be on Overstock.com for $99 unlocked.

and maybe if you wait until march 2014, it will be $9,99, as there will be no sales and all phones bought in dec returned...

$0.99, but with a two-year signed contract.

For $99 firesale, i'll probably buy the Z10 & hope that XDA devs ports android to it.

I wouldnt put too much faith into that, they never touched the Playbook unfortunately, which is unfortunate since it was a pretty good tablet.

BB have a serious problem with pricing there only foooling themselves with it!

Why are people surprised with the pricing. Look at how much Sony sell their phones on their website, compared how much you can but it for a normal high street store.

Blackberrry needs to be realistic. They already did the writeoff. So just sell em cheap, get the inventory cleared, and get some cash flowing.
