Developers on Verizon cannot get the Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 handset

0. phoneArena 03 Feb 2013, 02:48 posted on

BlackBerry says it has started sending out the Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 handsets for developers, except for those on Verizon who will not be able to receive the Limited Edition "Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control;" In lieu of the Limited Edition model, Verizon customers can receive a Verizon branded BlackBerry 10 device or a Limited Edition BlackBerry 10 device from an alternate carrier...

I don't understand, you love android, which mean you prefer the open system platform...

dont you love Adobe flash?
don't you love Bluetooth file transfer?
don't you love custom rom?
don't you love 3rd party apps?
don't you love hdmi?
don't you love removable battery?
don't you love sd card slot?
don't you love nfc?
don't you love choice? (full touch and qwerty)

bb10 has delivered everything you want... Why do you still hate blackberry all the time nikolas?

This irony, you're not smart enough to be a developer, but if you were smart enough to be developer you would not sells the device.

As i said, some people just hate mainstream devices for no reason, I hate bb just like Americans hate apple because iPhone is the mainstream device in the states and in my country bb is the mainstream device, know what I'm saying?

Just because I love android doesn't mean I'm an Android fanboy,
In addition, bb is overly overpriced, the bold 9900 (former rim's flagship) still sells for a hefty 500 bucks, yet people still buy it and considered it as a "rich and cool person's phone"

Lmfao you can't install custom rom on bb

If someone would give me a year old s3 or a 2 days old bb 10, I would take the s3 in lieu of the bb 10

Well said, I agree, and would do the same; no custom ROMs, no changeable Kernels, no options to over clock the CPU....!

This new OS of BB and Nokia's scrap WP8 will fail, and is failing while "LINUX" and iOS dominates!

Galaxy s3 is not a mainstream device, it is clearly designed for human including
Geeks and tech-savvy folks

Indeed, it is not the sole reason why I hate bb, there are still lots of other factors

Nikolas.Oliver: Clearly... You have no idea what you're talking about. "Galaxy S3 NOT a mainstream device"? Are you KIDDING me?? The S3 is as mainstream as it gets. Samsung designed it specifically to be so and marketed it as such.

Your reasons for hating Blackberry are your own but foolish. "Because its a mainstream device in your country"? That's about as retarded as it gets.

"Americans hate Apple"? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH​AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

What rock are you living under? America is Apple's stronghold. Like I said... CLEARLY you have no idea what you're talking about. I'm surprised no on else on PA called you on that BS.

I can't wait to come here and see your excuses and the other haters excuses when Blackberry does well. They may not beat Android or Apple(though one can hope the step on Apple on their way to second place)but they'll definitely beat out WP. They've already been doing so with their OLD devices. WP doesn't stand a chance against their new devices.

Full disclosure: I'm an Android fanboy. Admittedly so. Currently own a Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 as my daily devices. But I also love cool technology. Good technology. QNX(BB10 for the uninitiated) is AMAZING technology. And has so many more applications(from NASA software, to automobile software, to parking meter software and beyond)than most. BB10 will do quite well in this upcoming mobile computing age we're entering. Its already there. iOS and WP... Not so much.

And reports of Apple's slow spiral into nichedom are not exaggerated. Its already happening.

Oh, stop. iPhones and Blackberries are not Mercedes (unless you mean late 1990s - early 2000s Mercedes). They're more like Coach purses. They aren't any better than other purses, they're purchased because others can plainly see it's a Coach.

Its form over function. Style over substance. And its sad.

I personally don't understand his hating on BB10. I love "Droid", but I wouldn't mind having a BB10 device. As you said, it has everything that us "Droid" lovers want, as long as the OS is customization, then what more could we ask for?

No...BB is not open source...it still has some limitations, you can't run bb 10 on htc devices can you?

 will dig its own grave

I have to admit I'm loyal to no one brand but if you put form over functionality doesn't that defeat the purpose of the usability of the device. That is short sighted mentality, you pick one brand over because it has a more glass like yet fragile substance and more prone to scratches over the other that just performs seamlessly with added extras that are actually quite useful? C'mon, no one is attacking Blackberry except one, I actually want Blackberry to do well and support them like they have supported me with software updates via the trusty Playbook i have and I'm no Apple hater, like I said I own and use every OS bar Windows Phone 8 (which is next on my shopping list btw) but it is silly when the only thing people attack others for using Android and Samsung for is the materials they use, that's like saying I should't drive a sports car because of the less exotic materials being used and because of the fact is uses lighter Carbon Fibre material over Walnut wood trim.
