one thing blackberry has done is they REINVENTED low range devices by giving good specs but FAILED to price it low end.instead they REVOLUTIONARYLY priced more than S3

well its because its not completely low end!

1. it has 2GB of RAM which only high end android Phone has and Windows Phone dont have!

2. it has LTE! so its not really class as low end

so its tolerable... just wait for about 2-3 months then it will cut down the price!

and maybe the other reason why BlackBerry price its devices like that because they don't have deep pocket that microsoft has to pay for the developers they need cash so that they can keep the devs happy!

LTE isn't high-end. There's phones you can get for $100 (or free on contract) with LTE.

2nd to that! if they grow faster than anyone else (BlackBerry just name it) but i'll lol to that since the software was already 3 years old, yet it still not that stable or don't have a decent market share! while the BlackBerry 10, its completely new still it sold 1M Z10 on its first release!

so microsoft needs to credit it to nokia!

btw, temple run can now be played on 720 and 520 (and those other with 512MB) because before it is only available to phones with 1GB of RAM

All the credit goes to Nokia. It happens only because of their effort.
Before Lumia series nobody was interested in Windows Phones.. Now see where are they going. Peace.
