    sounds the same... have to wait a little while before we get our hands pn them...
    and looks like maxis is winning the rest of the carriers by having the opportunity to sell the device one month earlier...

    Samsung note2 - rm2215
    iphone 5 - rm2279
    htc one x plus - rm1930
    nokia 920 - rm1809

    wow, a 920 is only rm1809? not bad.... I suppose that does put the Z10 at 120$ more expensive, which is substantial!

    Anything priced above RM2000 is a premium product, and has to behave like one.

    Its not that I rue BlackBerry's new offering (I wish I could buy one) but they should have kept prices at least 15% lower, sub RM2000 price range. It would draw a lot of mindshare. Instead they decided to price it on par with other flagship devices.

    Okay, I understand higher pricing denotes high class exclusivity, but this is downright ridiculous. Yes, BB10 has so much of win (in terms of upgrades vs legacy OS) that it makes Android 4.1 upgrade from 2.3 looks pale. Yes. But to pay for such premium is definitely not worth it.

    I remember I paid a certain RM1800-1900 for BB Torch 9800. If you ask me, another RM2k for this upgrade, doesn't sound so fair when there are Android phones that were within Torch's time, yet have upgrades to ICS and JB.

    They should have lowered the price to be ultra competitive.

    Why should the price be lower in Malaysia than the rest of the world?

    Lol. Agree.

    Why should it be lower? I think the price of the Z10 in Malaysia is reasonable compared to the rest of it's competitors...

    I don't think he said Z10 should be lower in Malaysia only.

    Didn't say that only in Malaysia.

    Ultimately they should go for a more aggressive pricing. Didn't see it happening.

    Sigh.

    definitely....
    full house at the main event.
    the fans event which was invited-only event got everyone buzzing to the demo Z10s.

    don't know about the pre-booked, but majority of my friends are talking about switching. though, most will still keep their GS3 or note2. not many iphone users though.. bet they'll switch when they see more on the streets..
