    Matt, I hear you. But if its selling "like hot cakes" why stop and why not saying backorder. They have a billion dollar stock written down.
    because they can still sell them and make more money. I am sure they still have people buying them at 349 as well. They still have other carriers that need stock i would hope.

    Well if they have put up say a 1000 units for sale, at least there are 1000 new BB 10 owners out there. I guess at this point, its basically one customer at a time.

    The more Z10 out there the better for BlackBerry, converted 3 friends on pay as you go this week, now CFW are out of stock in North London.

    Best of all the new owners who would never had paid the original prices think there Z10's are the dogs bollocks and can't believe how much better they are compared to there previous HTC desires and Samsung Ace's

    If we all got of our backsides and converted a GS2 or Iphone 4 user we could make a huge impact!

    Thanks

    Using this link it appears you can still order. Nor sure if they will cancel orders or not

    Considering that only fan sites reported this there probably weren't many sales but its better than sitting doing nothing.

    They should keep the sale going until Xmas. I'd like to know how much they have sold so far too. I managed to buy one unit on Saturday.

    Since the Z10 inventory was "write-down", they could even catch fire to them, that wouldn't represent any loss on their accounting.

    The Z10 is already a aged device, so is good for BB to let them go, and focus on it's replacement, make those handset get to people hands with the new OS updates, and let those buyers know that they can install android apps... Coming with droid-store instaled as standard wouldn't be a bad idea

    I hope the incoming CFO figures out that BlackBerry needs to sell phones CHEAP for a while...including the Z30. I think a fair price for a Z30 should be $350...Z10 and Q $250, and Q5 $150. I sort of feel jipped that I paid $600 for my Z10 eight months ago and now it's the budget phone.

    First post on CB via that app, is it normal to see all the html formatting in your own posts?

    Posted via CB10
    The UK pound sign in the CB10 app seems to break the formatting in posts we make so all the html tags are revealed. Another bug I hope is squashed if this app ever gets an update.

    I almost went white instead. Then today was looking at the white one in reviews and was glad I went with the black.

    From a financial perspective this does not excite me at all. I expect that the break-even point for a Z10 to be around this point. So frankly, they're not making any money from these sales, or barely at best.
    From a marketing perspective this makes me feel good. The best advertising of a product is happy consumers with the product. So let's hope all these new Z10 owners are happy with their phone like I am with mine. However, I hope they weren't all bought by BBOS users just waiting for a cheap BB10 device because we're at a 0 sum game.
    They were written down, they could sell them for $1 and it would be profit.

    Even if they were theoretically being sold for break even that's no bad thing as BlackBerry earn money from BlackBerry World purchases. Seeing as how the remaining inventory of the Z10 was written down its now like having a loss leader that can't be shown as a loss on the books again, because it already made the loss. Getting those Z10s in people's hands this Christmas should be BlackBerry's priority.

    I've not read all the responses. But, I'm guessing they'd initially set aside X amount for the deal of $200. Even more so to see what the market was/is like.

    Maybe now they can place the Z30 on 'general' release...

    They wrote them down not off. They might write them down to where $50 is the breakpoint instead of $180 previously. We dont know

    I say BlackBerry has to cut its losses and get this phone in the hands of as many people as possible. It's impossible to have this operating system for a week and give it up. Word of mouth has to come from the ground up if they're not going to advertise properly.

    lol you throw a phone on sale for 200 unlocked, no matter how "bad" the smartphone is in a consumer's eyes, they will buy it. bad reputation or not.
