I am seriously not even getting my hopes up about having a Q10 until May. That's what I've put in my mind, because BlackBerry said April. So if it's earlier than May, I will be pleasantly surprised. But it concerns me greatly that the videos of the Q10 today were only of BlackBerry employees showing the interviewer around some basic things. That to me was a huge red flag, and was eerily reminiscent of September 2010, when Mike Lazaridis showed off the PlayBook, and the PlayBook was on display after the announcement, but ONLY in glass casing, as the PlayBook ran a demo video. No one could touch it, no one could hold it, but we could all just drool over it.
It was released 7 months later, in April 2011.

Late April / May...that is sad! I think this was a horribly planned launch....How can you present products and say that they are perhaps available 3 months later? That is an eternity in the phone market cycle. And the Z10 is only available in 3 countries, the others follow in 2 months! Will it be the same with the Q10? Available in April for UK and Canada; for EU and US in July?
Also the issue of pricing is annoying. I understand that each provider has their own pricing, but it was nice to have an idea how much it cost off contract.
I already have a tough time explaining that to the blackberry users in our company....

Completely agree.. This delay in actual launch is very poor on rims side of things. They delayed the announcement alone enough as it was now this. Like an above poster said a couple months is an eternity in the mobile market. Very disappointed considering that we didnt really see too much more than what we already knew pretty much meaning we are still just waiting and waiting. If you look at other companies (apple ,Samsung) they announce a product and its on the shelves within a month absolute maximum.. You'd think rim would of learnt this from those companies. Unfortunately not. Nevertheless ill be trading my isheep 5 for a q10 but I can't help but be upset with rim making me and everyone else wait another few months on top of the already huge wait
It's worse to announce a product prematurely then have a huge wait for the product to hit the shelves than to just delay the announcement until a time where they can safely release the handsets a couple weeks after

Like everyone posted in here I'm also disappointed in the availability of the q10, or lack thereof in this case. Love the hardware of both phones and very excited about blackberry 10 but the wait is just a little unacceptable. I guess if reviews thus far have been stellar (which it hasn't) then perhaps it's a little easier to wait. But so far it's been a little mixed and seems to me the consensus is that its just above average overall.
Sure it's 6-8 weeks away til anyone in the states get a hold of it but considering the anticipation and importance of this moment to blackberry, it really is like déjà vu - granted with totally new stuff.
I'm still excited for this because I'm always looking forward to trying new things especially mobile and general computing. My current phone will hold me over no problem for a while. Just thought I'd be able to see for myself what blackberry can do given how much time they've had and what this meant to them.

Not the blackberry fault, but the carrier? Okay, so explain me how apple, for example, do to make akeynot and launch their phones some days/weeks later?
We get a keynote where many things where hidden. Launch date for Canada, UK, maybe US, only for z10... What about price? What about date for EU? What about Q10?
Keynote was just like: ok, there are our phones that you have seen before. You'll see by yourself the price and launch date when your carrier will bring it to you. We present just one phone, you'll wait for the second, and of course we don't speak about PB.
I'll buy q10 of course, but this keynote happened to early, blackberry wasn't really ready IMO

I was so eager to watch the keynote and get one of the shiny new BB 10 devices a few days/weeks later. So far, I have not watch the keynote but if I sum up all the threads, posts and snippets it gives me the impression that it was still too early for a launch. If you keep someone in suspense for so long you definitely have to come up with a result people/ potential customers can lay there hands on soon after, not moths after. The wait is not over, it is still ongoing and this makes me

This is even worse!
Watching Blackberry promises/releases and "understanding" it much better, a few month ago I signed a two year contract for a new 9900.
I'm hoping to see a "new" Blackberry device on the shelves when my contract is due to renewal.

Throw us, the long-term supporters, a bone for waiting longer and package a ton of accessories (bluetooth speaker, bluetooth headset, microhdmi cable, spare battery and charger, premium holster, music gateway???) with the Q's release.

Words cant express how much I hate Blackberry for this.
Its appauling, I know Z10 was the flagship its been clear for a while but I was expecting this to be out at the same time frame even If it took a backseat.
They're really trying to grab the Iphone & Touchscreen Android market.

A big surprise ? Hum... Alicia Keys try to convince us that she really work for Blackberry. I think that's all that we didn't know before this keynote.
Or maybe the launch only for the UK (why UK?) And the reste of the world have to wait... I'm waiting for a year, i know how to do.
