- Hey, what did you expect ?
This makes a +/- 25% extra for public price. Sounds quite accurate.
Here, in FRance, we have an operator with a "all inclusive" (unlimited FR calls, data, SMS) for €20. I'd bet a lot will jump on that quite attractive price V.S iPhone.
Nice price, even if I believe it's a little "low" for "premium device". Time will tell.

If Blackberry's earlier pricing strategy is anything to go by then, we must accept the fact that they have always followed specific region based pricing. Gadgets have typically always been overpriced in the UK owing to high taxes and customs duty. But a phone contract free for 750 USD seems like a huge barrier to early adopters, considering that no matter how hard RIM markets BB10 the word -of -mouth from early adopters is paramount for success. And RIM's new strategy focuses on developing countries like South Africa and South East Asian countries (India, and so on) where the only way to acquire a phone is contract free as most of the market is pre-paid. I still feel that pricing can only be confirmed post Jan 30.

- Optional, but not needed.
Some of HTC and Samsung's are priced quite high as well. So it's a normal off-contract price to me. Those saying it's going to be like that on a 1/2/3 year term, aren't doing their research. Just thought i'd put that out there.Flamers, don't even try, I have my waterhose ready

A 50% plus premium is way too much, particularly if the hardware is going to be a backwards S4 dual core with the old adreno 225 gpu.

I bought my P900 for €500 and it still works. For a truly endurable phone this price is more than justified. And if it as well as you've got the stamina to use it for that long it's a price well paid.
