    Lines at Canadian retailers-sourcez10.jpg Lines at Canadian retailers-z10black.jpg

    Sold out locally in Waterloo, Ontario at The Source as of 1:55 pm except for 1 black and 1 white phone at the Conestoga Mall. I doubt the one showing as being on hand is actually in the store now.

    The Source won't ship until March 1st from the online ordering site.

    A lot of BlackBerry Z10s are showing up in Kijiji (within 160 kms of Kitchener/Waterloo). Asking prices for mostly locked to carrier phones are CAD $700 to $1,200. Offers appear to be in the CAD $500 range for both unlocked and locked. One shows sold in Brampton at CAD $1,100.

    Prices and quantities available are similar on E-Bay, pretty well all non-negotiable and no returns.

    Is it worth driving around to find a white z10 from Rogers or should I just wait a bit?

    London Drugs will be selling them and according to their web site are already anticipating new shipments later today and later this week.

    The new BlackBerry Z10 arrived at all London Drugs stores this morning with additional shipments coming this afternoon, and again later this week. London Drugs will also be carrying a range of accessories for the BlackBerry Z10.
    And in what I would consider an encouraging note:

    London Drugs customer service representatives will be available to demonstrate the new BlackBerry Z10, as well as support customers in the migration of their information from previous devices.
    On the other hand less encouraging:

    The BlackBerry® Q10 (touch with physical keyboard) will be available to global retailers in April 2013. London Drugs will also be carrying the BlackBerry Q10 smartphone.

    I went in to pick up my two in Ancaster, as soon as I walked in the door and said I'm here for the Z10's she said she only has a few white left. They are at 73 Wilson Street, Ancaster, Ontario if you want to call them.

    I played with a demo unit at a store today. The only thing I have to ask is can you change the font size of the predictive text? I wear glasses for reading but dont need them for my phone, or while on the computer, but I found the words on the keyboard a bit too hard to read.

    I could not change the settings on the one at the store, because it was in demo mode

    It depends on how long you would like to wait. I suspect the distribution chain in Canada has a lot of devices available but that individual stores kept quantities on hand low so they would not get stuck with inventory. Canadian retailers are definitely reluctant to stock any product in quantity preferring to have only a few of each item in store and back-order where demand is strong.

    If you can wait for a week or two, I am sure you will be able to find the phone you want. If you want one in the next day or so, phone around to check with local retailers first. Most will set aside a device for a couple of hours anyway if they have one in stock..

    Line up at the start of the day here in Peterborough, ON, Canada at the main mall. Went to TELUS store at 1:30 pm and got the last one!!! whew! I was in and out in 30 min with my new Z10 all set up and ready to rock. Got home and my wife already got hers and was playing with it. We just stopped now for dinner at 5:30.......time to eat. Things were seamless at the store and the dudes knew their stuff. Even took my old Torch, and did the transfer for me via BB Link right there and I was set to go! very happy........

    First impressions (used for 3 hrs so far) :browser is fast. phone is fast and responsive. screen is crisp and bright. feels good in hand (ie: balance and texture), very swipey and now I get the whole "flow'' talk. battery is not heating up with 3 hrs straight use.......could right more but time to eat and get back to my phone!.......very happy so far. glad I got one!

    Demand seems quite robust in Canada. I checked The Source website, and it looks like they're down to under 60 Black Bell Z10s in BC, and 13 in Toronto, with 12 of the 16 Toronto stores sold out.

    Not sure how many they started with, but it seems likely that they will clear 90%+ of the store stock at The Source out on the first day.

    Cool Long May Your BlackBerry Jib Draw!

    Got my 1st Smartphone Ever Today: #Z10 - The only phone I've seen worth buying yet this millennium! #BlackBerry10 just brought sexy back! EPIC!!!
    (About time someone put some thought into proper business and social information management.)

    I literally got the last (black) one at the RogersPlus in my neighbourhood in Ottawa, and was surprised to see people had to then be turned away. Excellent device to grow-on imo.

    Very happy camper so far ....now back to the fun Woot Woot!!

    If I get a new BB at all, won't be waiting in line for it. As a retired Soldier, I'll be damned if I voluntarily wait in a line ever again, unless it's to see an Alabama football game.

    I'm in Guelph too, but on business in Bangalore. Just reading the action on my PlayBook.

    Cannot believe the comments from CNBC that 10 will fail be because no instgram. What's. Instagram? I am serious. Can these idiots deny it's on its way to being a success?

    70,000 would be about a quarter of the population of Waterloo + Kitchener. Methinks you got some bad info.
