Adding insult to injury: Canada's Rogers says "No" to BlackBerry Z30
posted by Alan F. / Oct 04, 2013, 1:48 PM
Rob Bruce, Rogers’ president of communications, says that not carrying the Z30 was a "routine decision" made months ago. Bruce states that the decision has nothing to do with the problems at BlackBerry, and said that Rogers has decided other times in the past not to carry a new BlackBerry model. The mobile operator does offer the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10.
With other Canadian carriers such as Bell and Telus planning on offering the new high-end BlackBerry 10 phone, a company spokesman says that it is seeing "broad support" for the BlackBerry Z30 in its home country.

Thats like rubbing salt in a wound. Dang...even Canada knows BlackBerry is no more. Lol and the US keeps certifying it for use like the white house and stuff. Don't know the details, but BlackBerry should just be sold. Its a shame when nobody wants you.

BB liquidating there phones is going to be one hell of a fire sale. When the price hits $199 For the Q10, Z10, there will be some sales. They have over a billion dollars of BB10 phones.

I can't understand why would anyone buy BB devices when the company is in begging stage? What happens if BB winds down their company and start selling underwears or perfumes? I'm not surprised if people still willing to buy them because they can't seem to let go the past. Sounds very pathetic. Move on!

I would like to challenge all of the android user and iphone users to try the Z10 and compare it to any android or iphone model. The Z10 has no lag. It is super smooth. Sure some of the Blackberrys of old did have some lag but the z10 does not have any. I was standing behind a girl that just switched from the g4 back to the iphone and I heard her say that I had forgot just how slow this phone is. Also what I find amazing is when I leave my z10 laying within my place of work People just cannot resist picking it up and playing with it. Let me see even 4 of them now have the z10. So go and try it. You will be surprised.
