PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And so, today, RIM announced its Hail Mary - a brand new mobile operating system (well, sort-of new), as well as two new devices. In addition, the Canadian company also officially changed its name from Research In Motion to Blackberry. The first few reviews of Blackberry 10 are already out, and it's not bad. The problem, however, is that in the case of Blackberry, 'not bad' could easily mean 'not good enough'.

The Z10 is a premium device. Official UAE price is AED 2599 which is in line with SGS3 and iPhone 5. Unofficial unsubidized price in UK is reported to be GBP 480. That is three times the ASP (average sales price) of smartphones.

I predict that BlackBerry won't sell many and will have to cut the price substantially within 2 months of launch.

Where did you find pricing information about the Q10?

These are and will stay the premium products.

As they have done for years, they release the bold @£400+ then a few months later release a budget version or two (curve)
