He figures that the new Blackberry will sell for an average of $375.00?
...He means what RIM will sell the devices to the carrier for, right?A reluctant iPhone 4s user who would STILL be a Blackberry user had RIM not messed it's own bed by putting a "Fisher Price Camera" in it's "flagship" Blackberry Bold 9930.

And its not all about apps, i didnt mention it in my post at all. Its about cost. If RIM wants to make $375 on each BB10 device then its not going to cater to people in countries where the median income is a little above what US calls "poverty level".~Matt

RIMM will sale many millions of bb7 in developing nations or in lower end markets until end of 2013 and will sell many millions of BB10 in developed counties so 35 mil is not over estimated. I know my work is wating for BB10 and just about to replace Trellia MDM solution with BES10 that will manage iCrape, BBs and Anroid.

Moreover, Heins stated the BB10 "production line" has been improved so that I believe many components will be shared across the range. The more you buy, the lowest the price ... and this will count for devices profitability.
Target is : hyper connected + massive use of social networks + need of organization tools (calendars like) + apps usage = far from average phone user = mobileized people

The only way you would not generate a profit by selling an existing customer a new device is if your incremental cost of getting that customer to upgrade from your current device is at least $112.50, which is extremely unlikely to be the case.
A new customer would likely provide more profits (the $112.50 + a new stream of service revenues for that customer), but the difference is harder to figure out since you are also likely spending substantially more in acquisition costs vs. an existing customer.
