If the hardware is engineered to run the device speedily enough for two years -- or whatever, then it is fine. People will upgrade anyway. The important thing is that it appears no stupid decisions were made feature-wise. As in leaving auto focus off the camera.

What if RIM is playing a shell game and the leaked phones we're seeing are the developer special edition phones? What if the Aristo is the phone the public will get? Whatever the case RIM can't go head to head with Samsung in a spec war, so they must optimize everything.
As has been said both Apple and now Microsoft have optimized their OS'es to the benefit of the end users and themselves. If. RIM can do this with their software which is considered dated then they will win over some customers and make everyone take a long hard look at their phones and say, "Why did I pay so much money for this and BlackBerry can do the same and better with less?"
I believe RIM and Company know what they're up against and will do everything they can to ensure that come launch time everything will be right.
I say let's not get crazy over specs/ prices/phones before January 30th, let's wait and see what RIM has to offer and be thoroughly amazed.

Here in Australia they've always priced the flagship phones at the same price as the iPhone. That's one of the reason's it doesn't sell well here.
Let's hope that doesn't continue.

Personally I've never had performance issues with my PlayBook either, I have ran up to eight apps at a time (including multiple tabs in the browser) without feeling any significant decrease in performance. I have heard some others complain about memory usage before however.

As a consumer, of course we want the best hardware and the best software experience. The mentality of people only wants what I offer not others was the real reason for RIM falling behind in smart phone technology. Yes touch screen was only for kids; yes, virtual keyboard was a joke against physical keyboard; yes, people wouldn't consider a device less secure; yes, the other device don't even have a full days of battery life... Remember those arguments?

I bought my PlayBook very recently, about a month or two ago, for $150. Frankly I doubt I would have bought it for a significantly greater price. It's a great product, no doubt, I just don't have a very significant need for a tablet at the moment. I've found plenty of ways to make it a functional device for me, but I could easily have lived without it.

So is your motivation for a lower priced Z10 inspired by your "apparent" $300 loss on transaction/s of your "apparently" owned PB? Forgive me for making a casual observation but in my opinion you seem bitter and perhaps you can justify that but the transgression of that to Z10 seems in my opinion shaded in thought, some would say "intentional bias" but of course I don't speak for all. On the flip side of that analogy is/are those who have had their PB's from day one and soon will see FREE BB10 on their PB, so ....happy hare/bitter rabbit would seem an apt metaphor of sorts when one tries to apply fairness across the spectrum of product price/marketability , would you not agree that a fair assessment leading up to the vortex of decisions in the marketplace in conjunction with consumer speak?

Z10 specs, price point - Not so impressed....
/blackberry-z10-f254/woohoo-pics-blackberry-z10-will-have-2gb-ram-dual-hd-cam-more-758986-post7799869/ I'm impressed and considering BlackBerry10 is a very efficient OS compared to the Hog that is Android, Anyone with an Android would really be doing themselves a favor in upgrading to BlackBerry10.

I wonder if all the people here defending the Z10's specs think that the Stellar and the Marauder are high-end.
