    This subject has been beaten to death in the MANY other threads on the exact same subject down the list. It's all speculation until Jan 30 when RIM announces pricing, no one knows till then.

    RIM does not set pricing for the wireless carriers.

    That's odd. That's not what I'm told. Apple seems to know exactly how much their phones will sell for don't they? I always thought the full price with no contract was pretty much the same from one cell company to another, I could be wrong. Either way it would be a stretch for them to be saying 699.99 for a phone at this time. I really doubt they have the final numbers and I'm sure there would be leaks of every cell companys pricing at this point. I should be able to call up my buddy at Wireless Wave or my buddy at Future Shop to have him look up the pricing, I've tried...no one has pricing yet but they all plan to carry product at launch.

    The PlayBook is priced less than an ipad mini now because it the only way to move it was at fire sale prices. THAT is the reason it is cheaper than a mini....

    I think we agree with each other and you need to read my post above the one you quote. I think it's safe to assume the Z10 will cost less than an iPhone5. We may, of course, differ on why that should be...

    The UK is a major market for RIM and I am sure we will have the phones as early as everyone else. I think the Vodafone UK launch date may surprise you...

    A credible source told me that Wind Mobile will release Z10 on Feb 12.

    Of course it's just "speculation" before the Jan 30 official launch. Given all the speculation flowing out there, we have a general idea though.

    I think you're going to be disappointed if you think you're going to get this phone for "nothing." I hope I'm wrong, but to think you're going to pay less than $600 off contract is a pipedream!

I only want a BlackBerry smartphone and as a long-time user the company has yet to prove its latest plastic and silicon products are worth CAD/USD250.00. The days of premium-pricing for BlackBerry are history as the BlackBerry PlayBook fiasco should have taught management. My monthly bill from my wireless carrier exceeds 250.00 with 90% tied directly and indirectly to BlackBerry.

    i'm guessing it will be in the range of $550-$650

    Peter Misek also recently suggested a price of $600 in recent interviews which is interesting...

    I'm going to be buying outright. I've already worked out which kidney to sell (actually the ip5 is going on eBay tonight). I've got a 9780 here that will tide me over until either:

    a. my carrier gets the device
    b. I discover that as with EVERY release of a popular device here the carriers will only sell on a plan initially (they make a lot more money that way) or
    c. some handsets start appearing on eBay from overseas - like what happened with the Playbook launch.

    Ask Bell after Jan 30th. Until then, no one knows. Heck, many probably won't know for days or weeks after Jan 30th.
