    This phone should have been produced and made available in 2011. Why introduce a new device with sub-par specs? There's a market for premium devices as evidenced by Apple's astronomical sales revenue. Come on BB!

    Bring on the full HD IPS display, 64-bit processor, quality cameras, etc.

    It's supposed to be a cheap phone for bulk enterprise deployments, what did you expect?

    You would expect much more with that name (Leap)!

    It is a stretch to compare Blackberry premium and Apple premium.

    look at that device, twice the device the leap is and $249
    not to sure why BBRY couldn't have come up with a better device for a low end unit.

    A Chinese low cost phone. Even for Chinese standards it's a no name.. would not even consider it once tho! Why not compare it with the 299$ 1+1? That phone truely rocks and the quality is good.

    Do however think that the leap could be cheaper duo to the fact it uses such old hardware.

    Guys. Software is what BlackBerry is working too. Get that out on cheap device. Makes sense from a business standpoint.

    I know that phone is a junk product , but the Leap uses old software in a new case and still is one of the most expensive low end device. Why is that? Do they really think enterprise can over look all the devices on the market and won't pick something with better internals and cheaper ? I totally understand what we are trying to do ... But people / business aren't silly with their money

    It's supposed to be an entry level phone. That's why the specs are so bad.

    After all, they've learned from all the revenue that Android has made off of similar products.

    So this low end phone costs 275$. It is nowhere cheap. It should be a 200$ phone. There are so many mobiles around 300$ that are way too much better than this. How will make money with this phone. I think slider will be the one that will change BlackBerry..

    Really!!!! all the chatter would actually make sense if the phone was targeted to the consumer market but guess what it is not... Chen made it very clear that this is for the business market... if targeted at the consumer I would agree that it is underpowered and over price compared to other consumer devices... As it is not... unsure why people keep going on... by the way ... all those who think it should be 200 dollars... guess you want the company to fold.... if BB cannot sell on a decent margin the might al well pack it in... so tiring of hearing cheaper... want cheaper... buy Chinese... you get what you pay for....

    You might think it's better but I don't. Some no name Chinese brand got better software because it's Android? And why do you think I didn't read the posts? I did read but I disagree.

    No just read the specs, just the processor alone is better, faster etc.allowing better multi tasking which i believe is one of BBRY's best features. You think all BBRY internal aren't Chinese built by the lowest bidder at Foxconn then your most likely in for a huge surprise. Its just an example Dave showing that BBRY could build a cheaper device, marketed towards the enterprise market. I'm not jumping up and down screaming its better and faster than anything around like you do about BBRY...i'm simply stating it can be done cheaper cause $279 isn't the cheapest low end device out there when using outdated older hardware.

    But you also said Leap uses outdated software which isn't true it just came out... kitkat is outdated software. That octo core doesn't mean anything and you don't mention battery life as a big factor whatsoever. At best the camera on the Kota is probably much better but I don't everything else is a winning factor.

    Yeah they could build a cheaper device but they don't have the margins to make any money with that strategy.

    Has blackberry done their homework here with complete market studies? I for one, would have thought that most large companies are fully on board with BYOD. Mine certainly is, a 5000 employee oil co.

    This phone is a leap of faith, also agree with the other threads, just a terrible name for this phone.

    Chen said "they " as in enterprise wanted a cheaper all touch device. And so he says that's what the Leap is for.

    Appearance-wise Leap is very much similar to Z3, I am surprised why it is not being said / projected so…. I assume they keep name "Leap" as it is step-up from Z3.

    I believe actual selling price of Leap will be less (should be around $215 to $240) or at-least it will drop soon. It seems to be just above Z3, which is at bottom of BB 10 device range/portfolio. At higher end, RIM / BB has Passport, Classic, Z30 and upcoming slider too. And at lower-end, Leap is nice introduction in BB 10 devices.
