As if Blackberry needs this now.
They got to price their devices right to help boost the sales rate.
Seriously, who is gonna spend that amount of money on a device that runs a platform on the verge of death?!

Governments around the world are buying them by the boatloads because of all the snooping that's been going around. Intergovernmental snooping. Governments snooping on international companies. .... Secrets to some are more valuable than 1000 folds on the SRP of these.

Still keeping these prices while dying. Strange!!!

"Unknown is the subsidized pricing for the handset, which will be available with two and three year contracts."

Canadian carriers have recently gotten rid of 3 year contracts.

Seriously? Wayy to overpriced. Moving on... BB needs to capitalize on key markets where its brand is still relevant, especially in Asia and Africa, and that means making features phones just like Nokia Asha. Ashas have known success in these regions because of Nokia's brand reputation. But no, BB went the flagship way... How the heck can this compete? This phone is dead upon arrival. All the best BB, enjoy making your last phone while it lasts.
