    The device is worth $399 BEFORE the BlackBerry value-add. How can they do that?

    If you don't think that's worth the extra $100, then you aren't the target market.

    For $399 I'd buy two of them. For $499 I'd buy something else. The BlackBerry add-ons are available for free in the Google play store for any android phone. If Alcatel can sell the same phone for $399, so can blackberry.

    Everybody that is saying it is too much is a cheap person. Sorry but It has to be said. It is a flagship device with very high specs and almost HALF the price of any other flagship out there. And for you to know, it is not pricing that will help BlackBerry but an actual great phone for once.

    No they aren't. The available apps would cost $24 for two years worth of subscription, but that doesn't get you the immediate security updates, the OS hardening, the swipe up gestures, the BlackBerry keyboard, productivity tab, DTEK software, or the BB10-style active frame screen.

    I don't think BlackBerry's software, DTEK, HUB and Suite add ons are free. They come with a $1 per month subscription. That's why it's prices higher because of the security software pre-installed on the device, couple that with fast security patche updates, almost monthly from what I heard and that's why you pay a premium. You want to go Chinese OEM'S, go ahead. Your device will never see updates and your phone will be vulnerable along with bad customer service if your phone needs repair. Less headaches with BlackBerry, so people, including myself are willing to pay that $100 extra for peace of mind and fast updates.

    Like they always say "You get what you pay for".

    Instead of buying 2, just buy one and invest the other money in bank, so u can withdraw 1 USD each a day and drink 201 days

    And if it doesnt sound good, buy whatever u want and please save urself spending ur energy here as a waste in ranting!

    Man some of these people are delusional about pricing.

    You want everything for nothing. 599CAD for a high end smartphones is a solid fair price. Don't be a lame cheap skate.

    Clearly you don't know how to use it because it makes it easy to manage all permissions in one place and track them if you want.

    I think $399 might be a sweet spot. $499 is doable but snapdragon 820 will be a year old CPU when dtek60 releases. LeTV leeco le max 2 is like $235 with snapdragon 820 cpu and they still make profit. oneplus is $399 and zmax pro 7 is also $399. I personally think that blackberry should aim for $399 because $499 would turn off a lot of consumers.

    If $699 is the Canadian price then it is comparable to other phones with similar specs at least under my carrier Wind. It's funny cuz a lot of bashing comes from people trying to compare a phone coming from an established name to knockoff cr@p. Axon name comes into mind. I read Axon reviews and apparently it is just pure hype and more bad experiences than good. Give BB a break. At least their phones don't explode and they come with no bloatware. I am in on this one if it makes it to wind otherwise it will be a sony.

    Not really true about the 820. It's more like been in production for around 6-7mths. In high end smartphones. 499USD is fair

    You see? $399 in. $499 out. That's what I'm talking about. Instead of trying to squeeze out a profit, how about BlackBerry tries to regain customers first with a good device like this phone, priced at $399. rebuild the brand.

    How about this: If you think the security improvements and zero-day updates are worth nothing (and many of you clearly do) then go buy a BLU or ONE+ phone -- and if you have a problem with it, stick it in the blender because that's all it's worth at that point.
