    Default Launch Date?

    What are the best guesses of when BB10 will launch? We hear beginning 2013, or quarter 1 of 2013, which would be at least March. Any good rumors floating around out there?

    This is totally a rumor, but I remember reading somewhere that it would launch in the first week of January in Europe and then February in the US. Kind of a soft launch abroad and then full steam in the US. Who knows now. Things can change at anytime.

    Right now am more interested in the PlayBook update to BB10, would be a real treat if its launch the same day the new devices are launched.

    When a launch date is announced, you won't need to ask about it.

    There will be at least a hundred threads on the subject.

    I wonder if developers will get to trade in their alpha before or after the release

    This has nothing to do with the L-Series but everyone else in this thread has covered that enough

    I feel like Thor will announce / Launch a Slider at BB World in May 2013... and my prediction is that we will see RIM start launching phones every MAY (for the first few years anyways) to beat the big "Android Summer" and "Apple Fall."

    Thor has already said that they are having great carrier support for BB10 Launching in Q1 2013 because they really are no other phones coming out then. So while trying to rebuild their brand it would make sense for RIM to have its own launch window without much competition instead of initially going head to head with iPhone by adopting their launch window.

    Once BB10 gains traction then I think we will start seeing them try to go Head to Head with the "Big boys" in a few years

    Let's see here. This guy has one post, and he's posting release date rumours that crackberry hasn't mentioned. I'm calling a fresh BS

    Since dev apps have to be submitted to App World by Jan. 21st to qualify for the 10K dev program (Alec Saunders video), my guess is the drop date for the phone will be after the 21st?

    Heh, Not a very nice way to greet a new poster, but hey as a regular on the Ars forums, I can see where the skepticism comes from.

    Seriously though, a Bell authorized dealer sent us an e-mail stating just that. Whether or not they are right, remember - dealer NOT Bell, remains to be seen. I'm dying for it to be January, not March, so I hope I'm wrong.

    End of February start of March 2013 is been pretty constant as the timeframe for both the L series and N series. Doubt it will change.

    I'm happy to be corrected, but when RIM state Qtr'X' for any pending release, it's usually as late in that quarter as they can get away with.

    Unfortunately I imagine the release will be in March for the US and maybe into April for other regions.

    I think you are underestimating them this time round, they will have probably not wanted to push back the release when they did, but having done so they would have had to have included a bit of slack in their estimate to account for carrier variations and I think we will see the first announcements for these devices coming at the end of Jan and then seeing the devices themselves in the shops at the start of Feb.
