I don't understand the pricing strategy for this phone. Amazon is selling the Z10 for $365 unlocked and the reviews of this phone (especially its keyboard) have been mixed at best. Who is going to buy this off contract for $499? For some reason Blackberry seems to think that people are willing to pay a price premium for a keyboard and smaller screen.

BlackBerry is dying and owners will lose support for this phone.

Z10 for 365 isn't bad. Maybe I'll try it out.

Q5 for $499. IPhone 5C is $549. Who decided that $500 was inexpensive. Nexus 4 for $199 was inexpensive.
