    These prices are wrong. Why ? Because in Europe the amount of money is the same like in the US, ie if a phone costs 500$ in the States, guess what! it costs 500 in Europe. Add to this price the VAT, which can go to 24% and you have a deal-breaker to average joe.
    Now, until Sept isn't that long time to wait. So just be prepared to handover some cash by pressing the buy button.

    $600 is way too high.

    $350 /$400 for the classic and $450 / $500 for the Passport.

    It will not sell well if at all above that price point. (apart from selling to some of us in these forums)

    So up to 400 for the Classic and the Passport from 450?

    Your Classic pricing seems pretty spot on, but the Passport.....why not give it away for free? Wouldn't that be awesome?

    I don't understand this $500 vs 500 issue. Don't people earn and things cost proportionately more/less? I can see this being an issue if salaries weren't proportionally scaled. If an engineer earns $75000, would he/she earn 75000 or would it only be 56000? If the former, then why complain? If the latter, I can see your grievance.

    The passport has better hardware than he classic, but it still isn't the complete premium package to an average user. (at least to justify over $600)

    Don't forget this BlackBerry is targeted towards Enterprise (business) customers. Notice how they keep mentioning how much easier spreadsheets will be easier to read. $650 is not much for corporations. For them it's just like buying a tablet, laptop, etc. Cost of doing business. $100 plus or minus is not going to influence their decisions.

    Another way to look at it is look at all the people/businesses that pay thousands more for a business class airplane ticket than a regular person. What's $650 for them, basically nothing. I'm sure even if they lost their phone, they could ask corporate HQ and they'd get another one right away

    Can -$800

    Unless you know someone on the black market, that's how she rolls.
