    Given your knowledge of current prices on competing phones and knowing you had to make a profit, how would you price the current portfolio of BlackBerry's? Give your sweet spot prices that would entice you and/or others to buy a BB10 phone... but remember a profit must be made.

    Z30 $530
    Z10 $400 ($200 build cost, according to iSuppli)
    Q10 $530
    Q5 $400

    q10 and z10 should be the same, $400 is would have been good with $99 on contact

    Q5 should be $250 or less and free on contract

    z30 $550 or $200 on contract

    Based on Blackberry's struggles with selling BB10 devices, I think the off-contract prices need to be lower than that.

    Q5: $150
    Q10: $250
    Z10: $250
    Z30: $400-$450

    at least for BB to get a profit, and to keep BB10 still running even it's selling on small number
    Q5 : $250
    Z10 : $299
    Z30 : $349
    Q10 : $349

    but my prediction for next 4-5 month, playbook pricing happen once again :
    Q5 : less then $150
    Z10: $199
    Q10 : $199
    Z30 : $199
    and BB will exit hardware market, after all their inventory clear out
