    Default How much do you think the L series will cost?

    Just wondering what everyone's thoughts are. It'd be awesome if it was $99 on a new contract, and it'd suck if it was $299

    I would like to see $99 on contract just to get the volume up and encourage app development.

    I'm guessing $149--$199 on contract...$749.99 unsubsidized

    249-299 on contract
    699-749 buyout

    Entry level BB10 devices will be 99-199 on contract and 299-449 without.

    That's my guess.

    i really hope they keep the device cost under $600 off contract. I'm guessing 150 on a 3 year Term would be nice with a $50 mail in rebate for new customers.

    The real question here is how much do you think the carriers want BB10 to be the 3rd place OS?

    Because, ultimately, the carrier picks the subsidy to throw on a phone with a contract. From what I've heard, Carriers are VERY eager for BB10 to steal market share from Apple and Samsung. Soo, I think we will see competitive pricing.

    However, if the Jan 30 phone has the A-series specs, I wouldn't expect the phone to go for cheap (but we're all expecting L-series specs).

    Personally, I'm hoping for something closer to the range of $300 - $400.00 CDN off-contract.
    The Z10 will be my last BB phone; switching platforms.

    What I have seen from my carrier, AT&T, top of the line phones start at 299 and come down over time, so that's where I would expect the L and eventually the N series to start. Over time, depending on how popular a phone is they progress to 199 and then to 99. The more popular phones take longer to come down, though some phones (the 9900 for example) never go lower than 199.

    When the 9800 came out AT&T allowed me to upgrade for $49.00 - now that would be sweet - but I am expecting 299.00 at launch (of course with the de rigeur 2 year contract extension).

    So then you think the L series will be 99 - 199? Gotta remember, the high end BB10 devices wont be launching till months after the initial BB10 launch.

    +1 Especially in Canada. The pricing will probably be close if not the same as the 9900 was when it first launched. I might even add $599. The prices are largely carrier set depending on the markup they want after purchasing the hardware from BlackBerry.
