    Default Better resale value, Z10 or Q10?

    I'm a true cellphone junkie! I'm about to buy either a Z10 or Q10 next week and I'm trying to decide which one to get, KNOWING I'm probably going to sell it in 3-4 months for the A10 or another phone. Which has the higher resale value so I won't loose out at much in using the $ I get back to put towards the next phone I get, IYO?

    The q10 will probably having a better resale value. I'm gonna be selling my z10 to get one, but I know the q10 still cost more so I assume it will then too.

    Q10. It costs more upfront and it's newer to the market. But it also depends on how soon the A10 comes out. If it takes too long, too many Q10's could food the market lowering its value.

    Q10 for sure. You can already get a Z10 for $300 on ebay.

    All touchscreen is great for the gaming and watching videos. The touchscreen keyboard isn't all that bad.

    If precision of typing is your bag, Q10 all the way. As much as the Z10 keyboard is the best touchscreen keyboard I have used, the correction and word substitution still needs supervision from time to time. Also, I believe the Q10 has a better battery life.

    They are both great, it depend what kind of device you prefer. For now the Q10 have a better resale value for sure.
    I used to be indecisive, now I'm not so sure.

    Definitely the Q10. I bought my Z10 on ebay for $400 and am seeing it already dropped to $340 in a mere 6 weeks! Jesus only God knows how much more it will drop?!

    The Q10 for sure. BlackBerry is known for its physical keyboard, that's a unique strength / advantage over the Z10.

    Q10, no competition.
    Search them both on Craigslist and you'll see.

    Z10 price dropped on Amazon after the release of the Q10 by more than a $100, but you never know what the market holds after updates are spread across the platform. I bought the original "assassins Creed" for xbox like 2 years ago for 6.99. It went back up to 17.99 a year later because the series was doing so damn good lol. I mean, there's no comparison, but it's the market demand that controls resale value.
