    I use Credential Direct but they are $19 per trade. Royal Bank of Canada is $29 per trade unless you trade very frequently. Others can chime in on their experiences.
    Scotia itrade is 9.99 a trade, free DRIP as long as you keep 50k invested with them.

    BlackBerry also plans to launch up to four models compatible with Brazil's 4G network in 2013, two of which were already announced - the new touch-screen Z10 and the Q10 - country manager Joo Stricker said. Two other devices could share the new BlackBerry 10 platform, he said.
    Now, If I'm BlackBerry and I'm launching four devices in Brazil, why would the country manager mention these two other devices sharing the BlackBerry 10 platform. To me, it reads as though licensing is a lot further along than we may have anticipated, particularly for the lower-cost BlackBerry 10 models. These were the models Thor stated would not make sense for BlackBerry to manufacture due to economies of scale. What would make sense is for a different company to built the lower-cost models and license BB10 on them though!

    "Could" also be re-vamped OS7 devices maybe? I recall BB launching a new OS7 device somewhere recently.

    Perhaps an OS7 hardware device with BB10 software. Good call.

    BlackBerry CEO says new phones needed to stay relevant

    Plans to roll out lower-priced models

    The lower-priced models will also use the BlackBerry 10 operating system, but will be designed with markets like India and Indonesia in mind. It's an intricate shift that involves gradually encouraging its loyal users in emerging markets to make the switch to its new operating system, while recognizing it's not going to happen overnight — and in some cases perhaps not for years.

    In the meantime, the company will release another round of BlackBerry 7 models in some countries, which continue to use the old operating system.

    On the topic of lower price phones, I think there's some miss communication out there. What TH said was he wouldn't make a phone that sells for $50. Wouldn't make sense profitability wise. However what he's talking about is full retail. On the flip side, a subsidized $50 phone could still net BBRY $300-400 ea. That would make financial sense to build. People took his comments out of context.

    I think any sales results will be skewed by individual's purchasing multiple units for resale.

    In addition, a greater percentage of Q10 sales vs. Z10may be corporate pre-orders. Thus, retail sales may not be meaningful.

    Q10 demand higher than HTC One

    UAE retailers face shortage of Galaxy S4 and HTC One smartphones
    Q10 to go on sale on Tuesday across all retail outlets and telco operators

    Dubai: Retailers are witnessing a bigger demand for BlackBerrys Q10, which goes on sale on Tuesday, than HTC One.
    Among the flagship models launched Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One on Saturday, retailers are facing shortage due to strong demand.
    S4 has been good so far, much better than HTC One. We got less stocks of HTC than S4 and pre-bookings for Q10 are better than HTC One, Neelesh Bhatnagar, CEO at Emax, told Gulf News.
    Right now, only pre-booked customers are able to get their hands on the flagship models.
    Add more of the good news:
    umbo is witnessing strong pre-bookings for Q10 and S4 compared to HTC One. Jumbo had 100 pre-bookings for the S4, around 60 for the HTC One and close to 90 for Q10.

    How does someone buying multiple units for resale skew the results?

    Someone just said that 8000 Q10 were sold between Friday - Sunday afternoon. See below

    Ok I don't know if anyone has followed the release of the Q10 in London, but in Selfridges, where they still have exclusive, was sold out in the first 90 minutes on Friday, and yesterday I went there around 1 pm just to have a look, and was lucky to actually buy the last q10 they had. They have sold over 8000 units in Selfridges London, I was told. Having used the Z10 since the release, the Q10 just blew my mind, it is PERFECT and flawless. There is nothing like this phone out there, and I am certain that BB will sell loads of them.

    Multiple sales to the same individual is only diverting say USA sales into UK sales. Thus, what looks like awesome sales potential for the USA (based on UK results) results in disappointing units sales.

    So you think the people lined up in London buying multiple Q10's are selling them in the USA? Even if this were true, wouldn't that just mean that demand for the Q10 can be expected to be good there too?

    From BB's perspective I have a hard time seeing a downside for anyone buying Bb10 phones for any reason, in any amount.

    Forest and trees and all that.

    It would make more sense that those buying Q10 for resale in the US to buy units in Canada. No doubt some will try to find a negative in the lineups and sellouts in UK. Short sellers have a lot to lose if BlackBerry succeeds.

    I feel somewhat privileged to start today's trading day with such great news, and the news is AMAZING!:

    And to believe some are short this stock. My gosh, I can't even imagine.

    In a statement, Selfridges said that the Q10 had been its fastest-selling consumer electronics product ever, through its London, Birmingham and Manchester stores. "Selfridges' initial stock of the BlackBerry Q10 sold out in stores within two hours," the store said in a statement. "Stock of the BlackBerry Q10 is being continually delivered on the hour, every hour to keep up with demand."
