While products will help, what is the point of having multiple handsets that have different specs, but are relatively similar for the most part. A Z50 would need to be a completely different phone that offers a different experience, not just a bigger Z30. Look at LG, HTC, Samsung, et al, their current line-ups give consumers a variety of choice (for the most part) that extends beyond one phone simply be larger than the other.

What BlackBerry needs to do to gain decent market share is to change their image, to change public opinion of the company, first and foremost. Dumping a bunch of handsets on the market is not going to do that.
Also, keep in mind that the BlackBerry phone that you want may not (and probably will not) be the phone that consumers want.
Specs are overrated, but sadly most use them as the yardstick to compare one device to another. BlackBerry could have the fastest, most powerful, phone on the market but consumers are not going to care about benchmarks if the specs do not meet or exceed the competition. It's stupid, really. Then again, I do not think the average consumer even knows what a benchmark is....even in this forum.

In Asian companies, many were buying phones that were manufactured by Asian companies; Samsung, LG, HTC, and so on. For what-ever reason, Samsung became the iPhone of Asia, partially because of the low iPhone presence.
