i saw this on the Main. it seems kinda iffy. im very happy that i have my Bell update on March 30th hehe. no full priec for me. 800$ seems like way to much, even though BBs have a history of being very expensive thsi seems like over kill

Not saying its true but all carriers getting later release is because they jumped on the BB10 wave late.They didnt believe now feedback from corporations and high pre orders came back they hopped on.And now they have to wait 1 month later whilst those that were on the bb10 ship from early will get the the money and probably new customers due to many waiting a long time for this phone.
These phone prices are becomng a joke lol these things costing as much as laptops and pc's. Someones got to step in and regulate these prices shessh.

It aint that bad in the London contracts are so-so.Just standard contract usually last 12/24 months depending on new phone and special offer periods where you can get the new phone at 12 months usually happens when they are raking it in so very,very,very limited.Contracts are £30-50 a month on 12-24 month contract price also goes up based on insurance cover and other small stuff.
Dont know man its getting outrageous think they are forgetting who's calling the shots.They then wonder why piracy and rooting and hacks and unlocking become a problem and sales go down smh.

I went to Bestbuy here in Ontario to try and pre order a off contract devive (can't do that it seems ) and the lady told me it will be available on Janurary 30th. I asked her where she heard it from and she said "that's what were being told". I don't believe it at all but thought I'd post it.

I demand a meeting with the Queen....and The Governor General...and the Prime Minister. If I don't get what I want I'll blockade the highways and go on a hunger strike!! Oh...no I won't, that would be just ludicrous.

The contest at Bell stated the approx retail value was at 700. They usually factor in other costs and fees (since they are not allowed to charge anything for winning), Why would they have 799? Weird.

No one other than RIM execs and perhaps supply chain really knows.
At first he was saying the Playbook 2.1 release would be August when it came out in October.
Then he said the first two BB10 phones would be the full touch and a slider phone. (This has yet to be confirmed, but having seen leaks of the qwerty, but not the slider, it is highly doubted)
Then he said he knew a senior exec at RIM........
Sounds like all BS to me. Though it doesn't mean it can't be Feb 3rd. After all, he's got like a 1/20 chance of being right. Which are pretty good chances.

Feb. 27 for Bell?
people are waiting in line to pay 900 for the iphone so I dont know what all the crying about 799 is about. even if its true. These things are not cheap to build and RIM needs to turn a profit. In most cases, its a 3 year investment. The price is inline with iphone and the S3

I've said this before the screen shot is inaccurate. First the street date can and will be changed, if need be Best Buy set that as a placeholder.Secondly the product description is not complete. Typically for any product there would be the model number in that line. And lastly Best Buy has the abilty to change that info in RSS at any point.
No need to start panicing that the phone is what ever price because the price is not even set, they needed to have a SKU in the sytem so they could start to take pre orders. And we don't even know if this phone is a 16gb or 64, or even the N series simply because there is not enough product description.
