Really unbelievable the delay they're having with getting this phone out in the US. The keyboard is the single reason I'm willing to leave my iPhone and have an upgrade available since December, and the way RIM has been with these delays I'm betting on June release at the earliest and wouldn't be surprised to see it pushed back even further. Really frustrating.

The long delay between releases certainly seems to make sense since we are only now seeing the dev alpha c devices. I'm really disappointed the q won't see the US until May. I was really excited to upgrade my 9930 sooner. I'll just have to wait and hope BBRY updates the OS before May to correct some of the issues users are reporting.

This is interesting.
They used the 8-10 week after the Z10 line that was used pre launch and applied it to the information after launch.
FYI it's all pure speculation on the journalist's part and they have had nothing official from RIM or even blackberry
Whats to say that the eight to ten week applied to the original release date in Britain rather then the release date over all carriers?
They're mixing old and recent information...

Hate to say it but if you guys haven't noticed... America. Gets everything last. UK always first, Canada second. RIM spends its time doing one part of the world at a time. They aren't super humans it would be stupid to focus on the entire world at once. Try to release a phone. Make ads. Dealswith carrier testing and yadayada.

I think that the Q10 was allways going to be way "late". Developers are just now getting alpha devices and the sdk to develop for the Q10.
They releasing later in the US might be not as bad if the initial issues reported by UK and CN customers are fixed.
The US has beed dead for Blackberry for sometime. So I don't think that we are the priority anymore as the marked is saturated with everyone having a phone in their pockets.

As for the US being last in this regards, it may be a strategic move by BlackBerry, but symbolically it doesn't really help their reputation for delivering on time. Even the delay on sales of the Z10 isn't going over very well with a lot of US BlackBerry diehards. The global rollout just doesn't seem that global, especially when even a small uptick in US sales could help to signal a turnaround.
