Geez... why nobody knows what ":/" means? :(

nasty overpriced s**tty devices, they sell Z10 for $750, what ??

$750 =

-outdated dual core s4 krait (it's either quadcore or octa-core now)
-s**tty camera
-cheap build quality
-SMALL screen
-lag lag lag
-doesn't even have native youtube app instead it directs you to the website
-the maps app sucks really bad, doesn't even have sattelite view, let alone street view
-big nasty bezel
-nobody uses it

$350 (unless you live in third world)
-quadcore s4 pro
-camera isn't good but either but it has photosphere
-premium build quality
-thin bezel

The Choice Is Yours...

Another great comment...Blackberry is overpriced, junk software, junk phone, and a waste of time.

Let's have WP, Blackberry, Android and IOS.
Let's see competence.
Let's see innovation.

Blackberry did really hard in the last year to get in the game again. They deserve respect now.

Let's wish them good luck instead of insulting them.
