    sell it on the black market?
    The problem is it doesn't matter what the cause, I fear Blackberry may pay for it in the end

    As a Canadian I agree - I don't like some of the comments here about "Well - now its your time to wait America.. well Americans do this .. blah blah".

    As I've said, we are all BlackBerry fans and I am just as upset as many others about the March US launch. And to you Canadians who think its a "good thing" for the US market to get it March - we won't have any company to support here in Canada if US customers don't buy the product in the first place.

    I liked the forums better when we rallied for BlackBerry, not against each other.

    i truly believe that Blackberry are not going for a big splash.
    i think they are going for a long game.
    keep in mind when it comes out in the US BB10 will have probably been updated to be more stable and better performing then now.

    Using the same people have short memories metaphor, people will forget about all this once it is available.

    Wow. This community is pretty disappointing. I remember when I got my first BB back in the day being on here and enjoying myself. Now it's full of insults and juvenile stabs. Pathetic.

    dude if you absolutely cant wait maybe one of your international CB friends can help out. where there is a will there is a way.

    i've bought several devices from the US and had them shipped to Canada for use. i dont think that's a one way flow.

    Here is your chance for a Z10 in the US.
    Brand New SEALED Blackberry Z10 Smartphone | eBay
    1200.00 I believe.
    I am disapointed but what can we do? I applaud our British and Canadian Friends. I am happy that you have gotten the chance to get the new BB10 so quickly. I really look forward to this forum returning to everyone talking about the new things they have discoveered in Z10. it will help me out greatly when I get mine from Verizon. Good things come to those who wait. Plus I get to save a little more money for some cool accessories that will be available by then. Peace everyone we are all Crackberrians!

    ahh if it makes you feel better, just think of us as beta testing the device to ensure you have a smooth platform when its released

    Not to be too heavy here but I am happy to see the disappointment. There is an old saying "Boo's are better than silence" (I think it was Dale Earnhardt). Anyway, it is a good thing that people are upset. Imagine if they weren't...

    If I were Samsung I'd follow the Blackberry Super Bowl ad with a Galaxy S commercial that ends "...and guess what Americans? You can buy this phone RIGHT NOW. No waiting"

It's about making money and being in strategic positions to do so. The Super Bowl is Sunday and it's being played in the biggest market in the world. This device is going to have 30 second slots to show off but when someone says "wow, I like that, where can I get it?" What's the answer? The UK? Canada? This platform has seen it's share of delays. This will hurt the company more than folks outside of the US may ever realize. Samsung is about to release another phone. We in (BlackBerry-US) need to be well ahead of that to ensure the best chance of having solid traction. Some folks current BlackBerries are literally falling apart!!!! THEY CANNOT WAIT!!! For some of us, a smartphone is a mandatory item for work. We need something that's modern. That time is now. I want BlackBerry to succeed but sweet baby jesus, today is not going right......in the biggest market in the world.
    I know is not fair, but the reason is this ...

    Release dates will be in the "middle of" March for us (due to carrier testing, which is more stringent in the US), but Canada will get the phones on February 5. The UK gets it tomorrow.

    It is funny, but imagine a life full of this???
    There are many other countries that had always waited so long, while US already had it

    Stop complaining and learn to wait, or change to another brand, there is a reason there are so many, if you like BB, then wait, be Happy

    But I am spoiled and "need to wait" and "get use to it"

    I sense a lot of hatred ...you make Canada look bad how's that?

    I am to be punished because the U.S usually "gets things before you" lol if I didn't know any better from your picture I'd swear you were a child.

    Get a grip buddy you make yourself look foolish.

    My point is as Americans you think you are owed to be first for everything! I agree it's not good that it won't be available until March for the us but there isn't anything that can be done about it. Talk to your carriers and tell them your concerns.

    Btw I never said you were spoiled and I never attacked you personally like you have with me so that shows your character. "buddy" I make Canada look bad? You just made the us look worse. But thanks for saying I look young I will take that as a compliment "buddy"

    Let's clarify: We here in America are not acting out due to entitlement--it's because we are obsessed with this phone and want it ASAP. You have no idea how hard it is in the United States defending RIM to a nation full of iSheep. But we do it all the time. Year after year. If that helps uphold YOUR stereotype, so be it. You can make it up to me by shipping my entitled @$$ a shiny new BlackBerry 10. (After all, I deserve it.)

    haha i know,
    but there is a difference between being frustrated as you clearly are, and taking it as a personal insult.
    keep in mind i never spoke out against americans, i was responding to a post about how people view americans that was bought up by someone else.

    and trust me, i do have an idea how it is to defend blackberry, but substitute iphone fans for Android fans. i also get some iphone fans but whenever they pipe up, i just ask if i can bluetooth a great song to them

    Lol we all have a hard time defending BlackBerry against all the uneducated Isheep so I feel your pain! I apologize to all the Americans on here for my comments im sure if I had to wait another month I would go insane and it's easy for me to speak because I'm not the one that has to wait so again I apologize for my comments to all Americans except to my "Buddy" BB-Bmore

    I hope BlackBerry can get a refund on their SuperBowl advertisement(s). Wasted money with a 60-day delay in availability from the US wireless carriers. Way to go RIM! Expect the share price to plummet if sales are not over 1 000 000 units for UK and Canada by next Wednesday and sustaining that pace will be difficult.
