    Seems to me blackberry got A LOT done in a very short time. Very unlike them. I wonder if Verizon wanted something special for their launch? Maybe they made a deal? What do you think?

    Verizon still hasn't released 10.2.0.
    I don't think VZW THINKS about what they do. I think they are just not caring what they do to the customer because they want BB to fail ultimately anyway.

    And the timing of the leaks... quick beta testing for BlackBerry a few days before Verizon z30 launch?

    Or, based on the first two BB10 product releases, they see no reason to commit or advertise a product that has little chance of selling any meaningful amounts. Let's face facts, sales of the Z10 and Q10 are underwhelming. Do not blame the customers, the carrier or anyone else. The products are not selling.

    I think they might have given blackberry an ultimatum... give us something special.

    Your right Verizon doesn't care about blackberry. They care about $$$$. Updating an os for phones people already bought doesn't make $$, in fact it loses it because people don't upgrade. If they release the z30 with 10.2.1... then how many z10 owners will go use their upgrades? this is how they think. They want people to upgrade in order to extend their contracts. This is their business modle.

    Except that the differences between 10.1 and 10.2 are pretty much unknown amongst the general consumer, so all they will see is a decimal digit difference.

    You're right about their business model, but they have implemented it by painting any BlackBerry as an outdated device from which you need to upgrade to the latest and greatest Android (while secretly hoping you don't pick up that iPhone).

    When they released the q it had a newer os. And I don't think they have anything against blackberry personally, they would just as much like galaxy owners to upgrade to z30s. They just want to keep people locked in contracts, that's the only goal.

    I also think the fact the os was not leaked for the stl-4 is very telling. If it was then if my theory were true it would **** Verizon off something fierce.
