Interesting tweet from Vivek about the hardware
I wonder if Vivek in the tweet is referring to the leaked images we've seen or the dev alpha hardware.

I wrote in another thread that the leaks of the L-series might be a red herring to what the final device will look like. Obviously for the L-series it's a screen with a back, but RIM can still surprise us I think.

The aristo is not for everyone. I am fairly certain that the L series will appeal to the biggest crowd and they will lead with that. The aristo can come later once bb10 establishes itself in the market a little bit IMO.

Aristo is flagship device, don't expect it till next Sept at least, L and N are high end devices, mosty aimed for NA market, after that they need to release lower end devices to sell high volumes out side of NA and then Aristo can come out for those that want a true superphones.

I'm getting the L - Series. When it releases, then happily wait for Aristo! After all, at that point I will be blissfully enjoying BB 10...I've been patiently waiting almost 2 years with NO BB 10!!!!!!!!!!

I can't see the first phones as being designed for the NA market. BB needs to produce good sales numbers to get back in the game and create momentum for release of other products later on. Good sales can only be built on attractive specs and prices for their GLOBAL customer base. The CEO has stated that BB will be releasing 6 phones this year to meet the high, middle and low end markets. Given that, if Aristo is the high end (I agree with you that it has the high end specs), then we'll likely be seeing the phones designed for the mid-range as the Company will surely not start off with the base model. Again, forget about being North American centric here. It's a global marketplace and BB executive (which is now mostly European by the way) has to be thinking about that first. NA needs to be a win too but the company won't alienate its client base elsewhere to satisfy NA.

Well think of it in car analogy L and N are like 5 series bmw and they are aiming it for entire world but not everyone can afford it, after that they will release their 'curve' models probably in qwerty and touch editions (3 series) that will sell in high numbers in markets where masses can't afford higher end L and N, and after that they will release Aristo (7 series-flagship) device that will be available for the entire world but will be mostly purchased buy NA market that can afford those dovices. That gives u 5 devices, 6th device (he didn't say phones but devices) could possibly be another playbook, possibly 10 inch edition

Interesting tweet from Vivek about the hardware
If Aristo will be the exotic bb just like porsche, I'm sure the stock will not long last here. Even the porsche is out of stock right now (for regular and gold version).

Aristo will not come out at launch. Many of us including myself would skip right over the L series phone and purchase the Aristo. If they out the L, and the N, and then the Aristo, people like me will likely buy all of them thus increasing their sales.
Don't get me wrong I'd love to have the Aristo right out of the box, but I don't see it happening.

I don't think you reflect the average consumer though. Most people don't shell out hundreds of dollars on mobile phones a scant few months apart. Tech enthusiasts do that, not average consumers, so no, I disagree with your theory that staggering launches will get people to buy both. People like you yes. Most people no. The average reaction would be "wtf, I just bought this phone, locked into a contract, and now you show this other phone just a few months after the fact?"
People like up-front behaviour from a company, not marketing gimmicks. Show me what you have out the gate, and let ME decide whether I want an entry, mid, or high level phone, not you.Carrier controlled updates is the worst smartphone spec of them all
