BlackBerry Z10 prices dropped by U.K. retailers
Apple iPhone 5 or the Samsung Galaxy S III. The analyst noted that the top end of the market is where the profit margins are the widest.
A study done for BlackBerry showed that one third of BlackBerry Z10 buyers were not coming to the model from another BlackBerry phone. That is a good stat for BlackBerry as the company usually depends on sales from its loyal followers. The price cuts pour fuel on the fire for those who claim that the strong launch of the BlackBerry Z10 that was claimed by BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins was based on small supplies given to retailers instead of strong demand for the model.

Not a good sign if a product is selling out so fast them there is no need to drop the price.

Dream on fanboy, The Z10 is getting OUTDATED faster than they expected. First it was the Xperia Z, Optimus G pro, HTC One then we have the Galaxy S4, these flagship handsets will offer better usability, faster smoother experience at the same price...the Z10 is nothing but a rehashed Galaxy S3 with a 2013 premium price, now who wants that???

In conclusion the price of the Blackberry Z10 is high as similar spec devices cost $150 less!! and the fact is that in UAE ppl carry 2 phones one is a Blackberry the other one is either Galaxy S3/Note2 or Iphone5

In the UK prices drop fairly quickly. You can get an iPhone 5 for about the same price, and that's what BB has to price against.
