    So it looks like the BB is going the way of the dinosaur. At least in America. It sucks because I have been a fan and user of BB devices forever. Oh well. I may have to move to Canada to really be able to get and use one.

    I don't know about that. I regularly see posts from Canadians having to go to US, European, or online to buy a BlackBerry.

    Speaking as a Canadian, we have no advantage, except we pay more for it I suppose. But they're no more available here than your way.

    Looks like we'll have to wait until MWC in Feb next year in order to find out.

    Until then, enjoy more of the same Instagram posts....

    You don't pay more since there's an exchange rate.... If that were the case, look at the price in AUD$ to feel better....

    I can assure you we pay more for everything here. Books are 30% more, and gas is $1.22 a litre (3.7854 litres per your gallon) and pretty much everything else. The exchange is factored in on every product, including domestically made.

    Gas is $1.50 here in Vancouver.

    I believe there were some incentives at one point. Outside of the major urban centres electric vehicles are not really that feasible.

    Getting more viable, mind you, but still a long ways off.

    Plus which, if you live in Ontario the electricity rates are so obnoxious that I can't see an electric vehicle being cost-effective - ever.

    BlackBerry badly needs to get an American manufacturer or a Canadian manufacturer even if it is a Chinese company setting up local manufacturing facility all I could talk to Samsung about setting up a manufacturing plant in the United States or Canada are all Samsung uses a lot of their technology in Samsung Knox

    If you thought BlackBerry phones were expensive now...

    They used to manufacture BlackBerry's in Mexico until a few years ago, not sure why they stopped.

    Do you know of any?

    Even when BlackBerry was BlackBerry they built phones in Mexico.

    Knox doesn't have BlackBerry Technology... the partnership way back when was for BES to be able to manage KNOX devices better - as that's what BlackBerry's customers were buying
