    They'd be pretty stupid to price them anywhere above 550 imo...

    New phone or not, I'm a consumer and I know RIM needs to sell the phones. I will use this to my advantage, and will demand RIM and its carriers to sell it to me at a lower price.
    There is little sympathy and it is cutthroat. Thorsten admitted it himself.

    $0-159 with contract, $400 no contract. Otherwise, get me a Nexus 4 and I'll be happy to be with any carrier I like and unlocked.

    in my opinion only the A series bb10 should be priced as premium, the L series should come at around $400 - $450 if they really want to make sales, debut the L series at that price. Users will get a feel for it, word will spread as users start to show it off and when it comes time for the A series to debut, drop the premium price on that and sales will only continue to get stronger.

    I'm hoping the L-Series is $199 on 2-year contract here in the US. I could live with $249, but if they go over $199, I hope they do some kind of bundling with accessories or something to make it a good value.

    In Canada, we are sadly still plagued by 3-year wireless contracts so..... with that, I would pay $199 on contract. Off contract, $599 is the absolute ceiling price.

    What is the ultimate BlackBerry? The ultimate BlackBerry would be a device with the screen size of the Z10 along with the physical keyboard of the Q10 and the battery life of the Z30. This, would be the ultimate BlackBerry. Why they haven't built it yet remains one of the greatest mystery of BlackBerry.

    If it's nearly as good as what I've seen lately, in videos and in person, I will happily pay $600. That's still $200-$300 less than an iPhone costs here.

    $600 is over the top in my opinion, the os is great, but its not $600 great. especially for the specs $600 feels like a premium high end price and considering the trend that seems to be starting with quad core and 1080p screens in the android camp, the specs for the l series don't seem to fit the bill anymore. At least, not a $600 one, however this will still depend on how the current specs handles with the os. In the end i guess, its unknown what this device will truly be worth to consumers until the launch date and reviews come.

    Not to me. Here's how I justify the cost of current tech (in my own mind).
    18 years ago I spent over $1200 on a small (2lb), flipscreen, Sony Handycam to record some footage of our first born coming home for the first time from the hospital.
    18 years later I can buy a device, half the price, that performs better, fits in my pocket and it can do countless other useful things.
    Times sure have changed.

    I don't know about US but in Canada we have TERRIBLE plans for the $$ we pay a month. I remember reading articles mentioning that we actually have the highest costing smartphone plans in the world.

    Yeah there are those $30 plans but they're either with companies that have poor reception or have horrible limits... I pay ~$60 for 200min, unl. texting, 500MB data and caller ID.
