Just one carrier will have bb10.... While all the carriers have OS7. Somehow I think this is an indication that whatsapp will not be on the platform for a long time, else all the carriers would have given it a shot.
To people not from NL: Whatsapp is very popular in the Netherlands not having it or having it poorly (wp8) basically equals no sales.

Yes I've read this too, but it's so stupid that the Z10 will be available March/April? If our German or Belgium neighbours will have it on time, I will buy it abroud. And even worse is that KPN or T-Mobile are not mentioning that they intend to sell the Z10. Anyway, let's hope the Z10 will be available on direct market without contract Maybe Blackberry will sell them for 649 USD hehe.

I am just assuming that the carriers know more than we do. Whatsapp is huge in the Netherlands. A high price smartphone without whatsapp would be a phone for hipsters only. A market way too small to be bothered with it.
WP7 was available on all carriers. This is might be an alarming signal from the carriers who are unbiased and know more about the bb10 future than we do...
Also poorly whatsapp implementation is one of the biggest complains about wp8 over here. And an android port, which many don't know how to do, will be even worse..

It is about time that at least 1 carrier has confirmed it that they will sell the new BB's.But the launch date of March / April.. is way to far off.
The phones will be launched world-wide at the end of January. At the beginning of February there will be a BB Word in Amsterdam.
If they do not start selling the phones at a maximum of 1 week after that, the buzz will be mostly over in the Netherlands...since its more Apple / Samsung (droid) orientated now a days.
And I have been waiting long enough for a new phone now + my birthday is Feb. 15th. I WANT A NEW BB10 phone by then!

No matter how good the phone and OS are. Without Whatsapp, BB10 is fighting a losing battle in Holland.

I just got confirmation from belgian sources that BB10 devices will be available in Belgium in March, pricing will be known at the launch on 30th January. This sucks. I don't get it with BBjam europe in the Netherlands, it does not make sense not to have phones selling in store by then????
