    The 10.2 SDK hasn't gone gold yet. When it does we are expecting 1-2 months until we actually see it being released by any carrier.

    My guess is that the SDK will go gold at BB jam Asia September 26th.

    The gold SDK should be this month, actually should be shortly rumours are this week

    I heard it was delayed a little bit but that source may have been wrong.

    Yep, I do it frequently as my carrier pushes updates a few days after Vodafone and I'm impatient.

    No bugs really?? I downloaded it for my Q. Battery went from 18 hours to 4. My Q was always hot more than half my apps stop working, the hub was laggy as all hell ect ect. Now I loved 10.2 and look forward to the official release but I cannot believe anyone that says everything is great.
    And for FYI I tried to install 10.2 a few times hoping it was just a bad install.
    So yeah 10.2 is great but not ready yet for carrier testing.

    Those are great news for Canadians. But since I live in the states, my question is. If I buy a Canadian sim through ebay or whatever, would I be able to dl the update?

    My own conversations with some BlackBerry folks about the US echos what you heard. I don't think anyone in their wildest worst conditions thought there would be this much negatively towards BB.

    Good news on the time line for 10.2, I can live with that.

    I think folks expected lack of enthusiasm and apprehension to adopt the platform.

    What is rediculous is the extent of the negativity which has almost reached a level that could be expected if Thorsten Heins was named CEO and made his first statement be "screw you all in the US!"

    You understand that none of the American carriers are obligated to sell any BlackBerry, right? They could simply say no thanks. That would be better sabotage, wouldn't it?

    The carriers are carrying BlackBerry phones because there is some demand for them. But, there is not enough demand anymore for BlackBerry to get special attention.

    The problem is little demand. BlackBerry needs a hit phone. It is as simple as that.

    And the best marketing campaign in its history to back it up.

    At the last earnings call Thor said that BlackBerry was going to have to spend money in the coming months. I have not really seen it. There is no more Z10 TV advertising that I have seen. I see the same mediocre Q10 as every once in a while. There is some radio advertising that doesn't stand out.

    To me, this suggests that BlackBerry has already written off these models. Let's hope we see a memorable z30 campaign. It would make sense. 10.2 on the z30 will (hopefully) get good reviews.

    Depends on which carrier you have.
    If you're on VZW like I am, no you can't.

    Which is why I don't need no stinking official. I have 10.2 now and love it!

    But with a Canadian sim you ARE able to download the update. but the phone has to be unlocked and not a CDMA.

    But he did just that very thing by delaying the US release under the guise of carrier-related testing. By May 2012 Thorsten Heins lost any credibility in my opinion and we've not been proven wrong during the ensuing months and now years.

    True. True. True. True. However, I would add BlackBerry should release a BlackBerry 10 smartphone in the BlackBerry Bold 9700/9780/9790 form-factor for those wanting the power of BlackBerry OS 10 and a smaller foot-print in their hand. And bring back full functionality for BlackBerry Bridge along with announcing development of BlackBerry Tablet OS will continue.

    By the end of the year the fate of BlackBerry will be sealed whether Thorsten is ready to publicly confess that he is not up to the challenge of lifting the company and the brand out of the cesspool.

    10.2 official will be out the same time as the Z30. Just like 10.1 was with the Q10.

    FYI, I bought Bell Canadian's SIM card for $2 bucks with the hope I can get the 10.1 MR update earlier - NO LUCK HERE. Probably because mine is -5 model from T-Mobile and although unlocked it did not work.

    Lol so typical for Blackberry to blame someone else for their lack of sales. People don't walk into stores and ask to be sold a product. They walk in knowing what they want because they saw an ad for it and liked what they saw. The US got a pathetic advertising campaign for Blackberry and an embarrassing song from Alex Saunders on how much they are going to keep on loving developers (what a laugh).

    Good marketing from Blackberry could help sell phones, not people in a store who are giving customers what they come in and ask for, which right now isn't anything Blackberry.

    Rite...it was him single-handedly that delayed it.

    Pay no attention to Verizon pushing the pulling updates for very small issues leaving their customer base to rot on 10.0.9.x.

    It was the carriers.
