    I was at my local (Kitchener ON) Bell Mobility store today while my daughter picked up her new i(not BB). Got talking about my Q10 and BB sales. In this particular store, BB10 devices are the top sellers "by far". That would be good news if it's true. Sales person told me categorically that Z30 would launch along side 10.2 on the 26th of Sept. I prodded a bit, but she was pretty certain with her story, according to her system. Both saleswomen in the store had BB10 devices, a Q10 and a Z10 which was nice to see.
    I'm not looking for the Z30 myself so it is neither here nor there to me, but the 10.2 update will be welcome.

    Take it for what it is......hear say!!

    Interesting tid-bit for sure, the 26th is just around the corner. I'm looking forward to 10.2 also.

    To your point thou (I'm from the KW area as well), there are so many BB10 devices in this area, it gives such a false sense of adoption rate. Most folks I speak and associate with either have one, or are talking about getting one. Last time I was in a local Rogers store, guy said the same thing, said the BB10 devices are their top sellers.

    Wouldn't it be great if we could get the rest of North America on board like this!

    I would be surprised if that were the case that the rollout is on the 26th as BlackBerry has an earning call the very next day.

    Not that I'm taking the statement made about the 26th with anything but a grain of salt, but what does the ER the next day have to do with it? I can't see it making any difference.

    Sept 26th launch, if true, would be sweet because I would definitely get it as a birthday present.

    That's awesome! I was in a sprint store in Cali here in the states yesterday asking about the q10 and there was actually a BlackBerry rep there demo-ing the Q10 to the sprint reps.

    Of course I asked him about the Z30 and asked if he had one on him or if he has used one, but unfortunately he said he hasn't used one yet.

    NA has lots of catching up to do but it's great to hear that BlackBerry is picking up in its home!

    I'd pretty say this pegs it in stone: BBM cross platform announced Sept 18th and launched Sept 19th followed by the BlackBerry z30 Sept 26th. Great month!!!!

    It should hopefully pick up the momentum.

    Makes sense to release it before any bad news from earnings report.

    Funny because I'm at UWATERLOO and all the students who get provided coop jobs at BlackBerry all have iPhone and Android devices. Everywhere I go on campus it's mostly those two as well. Although a few friends who worked at BlackBerry became converts after using the phone for a term.

    Really sad considering if there was no BlackBerry it woild be A LOT harder for these students to fulfill their coop requirements and graduate. Typical Canadian BS, we are always the first to put down our own.

    We've received nothing about any of this. We usually start getting cases 2 weeks ahead of any new phone launch and there's been no accessory advanced shipping notices nor any training modules from BB.

    We're corporate, and many Bell Worlds are franchises, but I've seen nothing to back up any of this.

    But a negative earnings call, which let's face it.. we are expecting.. would heavily overshadow any launch press..

    The marketing behind 10.2 would be so easy. Something like "10.2: the way a BlackBerry was meant to be" or something like that.
