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...

Galaxy s3 has sold the most out of any other android phone, it's an amazing phone but it is without a doubt mainstream. And who cares about "mainstream" are you a hipster? If it works for you and you enjoy using it, use it and don't worry about it being mainstream.

Lol bb = premium? Just see the z10, it is made out of a cheap plastic,

If phones were car

S3 = Lexus LFA
iPhone = Aventador
BB = ford focus

Ok, great, it's not open source. What's your point? I own an HTC device and it takes months upon months for device to create/modify the kernal in such a way that will allow you to run the newest update. So what has open source done for me in terms of timely updates?

You are correct, you will dig your own grave. It seems like BB is willing to adjust their business model(even if it did take so long) to respond to what the market wants?

 won't sell as much as android or iPhone, even its own ceo said "we've a clear shot of being a #3" believe me...

Apple is not a dying a company, As a matter of fact, It's the second most valuable company in the history of company (used to be the first)

Did you really just pretend that the S3 isn't made out of cheap plastic? HAVE YOU SEEN THE S3, because I am really beginning to question whether or no you own one. If you said Moto, or maybe HTC, then you might have a point, but the S3, in terms of materials used, is = "Ford Focus".

I kinda understand where he's coming from. I dont like Apple....I dont like the iPhone or iOS. Their fanboys might make me not like them even more.

In all honesty....since I like Android...I dont really care about Android fanboys...lol. I never owned a BB, barely used one ...but I like what I see from BB10....I kinda dont like the hate for BB10.

Hate for iOS, the iPhone and Apple....hate on....lol.

You know that's not true Nikolas. Samsung is one of the most dominant players - if not THE- in your country (Indonesia isn't it?).
Current stats shows Android is besting BB in Q3-Q4 2012 (64% market share, IDC stat).
And you know clearly that Android = Samsung there.

I fail to see your argument there. Android IS THE mainstream OS already.
You probably hating BB is just cause it's BB.

I love technology be it Android, IOS, Blackberry, Meego etc, and I wish BB10 a very good luck.

do i really need 5 inches phone to call and text someone? do i really need 5inches to see a movie? whats the use of a tv? and by form over function, making calls and sending msgs/emails browsing the web are the ones i do and i need. (browsing the web is done 80% on my ipad btw) so think of it, i have these functions already in a very good looking device. that makes form = function, style = substance! and its very freaking awesome!

"i mean the attitude of android/samsung fanboys like you!"

What makes you think that I'm fan of Android or Samsung?
What even makes you think that I'm fan of something?

"but we put our nerves down and just hope for the best."

Could you show me please where I'm nervous?

"not like fanboys like you who bashes other brands who is working hard to be in the game! got it?!"

If you didn't have noticed it already, I'm just expressing my opinion about various things and I'm doing it constructively not just bashing, I always explaining why I'm saying this or that not just bashing.

Correction the Ford Focus is actually a well made car, you're talking about the Corvette, plastic used everywhere in that car even the rear panels. The suspension sucks, leaf springs iirc

Well....I dont what happened.....but I know the Android devs who ported apps and use Verizon cant be happy about this....

Ran outta stock? Showing preference to the other carriers? Can phones from another carrier be used on Verizon? I'm just curious what happened.

Folks on Verizon just need to be patient. It takes time to load up bloatware, remove functionality, and lock down any possibility of increasing value and versatility. All in the name of "security" on the Verizon Network, of course. And if that means you get the phone 4 months after everyone else, you can thank verizon with your money.

I plan on doing that. I will be moving on at the end of my contracts. The may have a lead in 4G and overall network size, but when you can't do any with the device you BUY on it, what's the point in being on their network?

keep the technology coming! its better to see a lot of competition. a lot of choices for us consumers! dont say like you will not get it, its dead on arrival, its not going to be a success, bla bla bla! keep it to your plastic mind! cause there are people out there who like the ones you hate!

Almost forgot. This is iPhonearena. Can't call Apple "crap" like I did in my response to Nikolas. Couldn't get my post through for a minute. But you can say "Fandroid" and all sorts of negative things toward Android and any other OS with no problem. Go figure. And they wonder why they've earned a reputation as an Apple fanboy site...

It's actually the other way around. Majority of the users on this site hate Apple for obvious reasons: litigation battles instead of innovation (what has the iPhone or iOS done since 2007 that's considered innovation?), most generic patents (rectangle with rounded corners), filing patents for technology they will never use just to stop other manufacturers (stylus), and products that have the price tag of a Ferrari but have nothing to show for it.

And don't say I hate Apple completely. iPad 4 is the best tablet on the market for gaming and speed. Nexus 10 dominates it everywhere else, especially the screen. Blackberry 10 looks promising, just hope it does well this time around.

As far as I know, the only pa's writer who use iPhone is Johnnnnnnnn V, michael h uses nexus 4, don't know the rest though

Either ios or android is a very functional os, it's just designed for an entirely different customers

Android = for those who love technology, tinkering with smartphones, making their phone as personal as they want to
iOS = for those who like to keep things simple, hazzle free, 'it just works', if you want a little bit of customization , just jailbreak it

Believe it or not, ios is more customizable than bb, yeah you must JB your ios in order to make it customizable, But in life if you wanna receive something you have to give something in return right?

With blackberry, what can you do? Only themes and that's about it, Hybrid os doesn't make your bb customizable, it only makes your phone faster

CrapApple only has the largest chunk of the pie in the Unites States. And not by much. And Android just beat them out in tablet share.

You really don't know about anything other than CrapApple and Android do you? If you did, you would know that Blackberry's have been highly customizable from putting themes(Launchers on Android)on your phone to putting two different iterations of the BB OS on your phone. Blackberry's have been and always will be highly customizable. Please learn about the OS before you attempt to bash it. You're only making yourself look even more foolish than you already are.

And as for you saying that Apple is better than BB... In. Your. Dreams. The Z10 is so much better than the IP5. Better software. Better hardware.
