Is the Z10 considered the premium device or should I wait for a future BB?
No I understand where your coming from .... Just saying it would be ridic with so much on the line for the company. I can't wait to get a 10 device. Going to pay full retail for one the day it's available.

Don't wait for the Aristo/so called premium device. Get the first one. I don't know your financial situation, but generally speaking you can always upgrade later.
Aristo may not come until the end of the year, and we will not find out if that is true on January 30. You would have to wait out for more leaks.

There will always be A better phone tomorrow. Same with everything we purchase.
I'm getting the Z10, and I'm getting the next greatest model when it comes out too.
**** I'd like the phone from 10 yrs from now so I wouldn't have to upgrade and can save money or feel like I should have waited but that's not how the world works.

and maybe the Aristo will become the equivalent of the P9981, the aspirational device at $2000 - who knows?

Indeed always the complaining..Well if rimm should have brought out the most expensive BB10 , then how would they make costumers ? everybody would say , hey it is new and unproven , go away with a 800$ phone..
Rimm shoots well in my opinion ! They took the high level phone but not the to high level phone. People won't be scared to make the move , just as they could see how wel the z10 performs...
they just need costumers right now , it would not be possible to do that with a freaking expensive phone.
Thats my opinion about this...

I'm getting a limited edition device. If I wasnt , I'd be waiting before spending my own money. But of course I have plenty of phones already. If I was stuck with just one, old phone than I might be more anxious to blow my money on the first device to come along.
I do find it ironic that RIM has said there will be six devices launched in 2013. We've all patiently waited for at least a year now. What's a few more months? But again I'm not itching to upgrade so I wouldn't understand.
According to RIM, they still have 4 new devices to reveal this year. By the time the Z10 and X10 arrive to people's hands the first quarter will be over or very close to it. Leaving only 3 more quarters to launch 4 new devices. So we should be hearing about the new BB10 devices a month or two after everyone rushed out and bought one of the first models. I dunno
I predict a repeat of the Storm 1 to Storm 2 days. I think this place is gonna be filled with a lot of people suffering from a case of buyer's remorse.

"Is the Z10 considered the premium device..."
In many recent online videos, tests and comparisons have revealed that the Z10 performed as well as (and better) than the iPhone 5 and SG3 in all native, key, smartphone aspects. Are the iPhone 5 and SG3 considered premium devices?
If the Z10 is as good as the competition are, at launch, then it is RIM's premium device, for now. Will a better one come along? You know the answer to that question.Z30

I'm not sure if it matters so much that it's premium buy rather than it's first generation - I tend to avoid first generation* regardless of platform because more than any later version of hardware/software - that release is where the company gets real hard data about what works or doesn't work and makes its biggest mistakes.
* I didn't with my windows phone simply because it was a freebie and when it is free - who cares?

"Premium device" or "flagship phone" - the Z10 is it. I agree, RIM hasn't been sufficiently clear on this fact, but in the same breath, they haven't even OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED THE Z10! I hope that on the 30th they will make it clear, the Z10 is the BlackBerry 10 "premium flagship sex phone device".

I think in my opinion if this phone is being compared to iphone 5 and the latest androids that it is a premium device. Both of the ones mentioned are, so why would Z10 not be. As others have said, a company that is in a do or die situation is not going to release something that is only going to be a run of the mill phone and expect that to save their company. It's the best they will have right now, and I would think for awhile. I am sure they want to see how sales are on both devices they release first before they even think of investing any more money and releasing another phone. I am sure, lesson being learned their wheels will always be turning and it won't or shouldn't take them this long to release something the next time around. If this phone offers me everything I am looking for in a smart phone, it will be "premium" to me regardless of what one says or thinks
