    Not in a million years. Well, if my Z10 dies, I might replace my Z10 with an A10.

    I would if I didn't have a Q10 and I'm a full qwerty person all the way. I might still buy it all the same if there's spare cash when it comes out. I've never been about specs but efficiency. I reckon the hardware specks won't affect the performance of the smooth BB10OS in anyway. Seems like it will only affect the minds of the majority, knowing that they have less cores and pixels than other phones, even though the other phones lag like crazy, it doesn't matter, why should we have less cores and pixels?? We won't be having any of that Again perception runs tins. The A10 is already perceived as being inferior hardware wise, so it doesn't matter how well it works!

    just got my Z10 in February, so I would say no for that reason alone. My phone needs to last 2 years before I get another one. Not sure I would like the larger form factor of the A10 thou, but until I hold one cant; say for certain. The size of the Z10 just feels so perfect in my hand. With that said, I will check out the A10 and see how it feels (won't jump to any conclusions), but the S4 seems a little off when I hold it. If the Z10 croaks before it should and I like the A10, then I would certianly look at it.

    Only thing I would say (and I never thought I would), I don't think I would go back to a keyboard.....just so long as BB10 exisits....virtual keyboard of this OS is insane good.

    I was gonna get the A10 till I seen pics that show that the battery is non removable. So I'm sticking with my Z10.

    If A10 was available before I had my Z10, I think I would have bought it.

    I THINK despite the low specs, some of us may HAVE to. Reason being, I read on CB that, even if BB10 the OS supported USB OTG, the Z10 hardware does not, this could be related to my other post on the PS3 controller, low watts via micro usb.

    Therefore if the vision of mobile computing is ever going to come to reality, it probably would with the A10.

    There is no other marketing material to help sell the A10, what... it's a Z10 with a bigger screen?
    No, I think they MAY introduce USB OTG with some mobile computing twist, which only the A10 will support.

    ^ The above is probably way off, but with that being said, if its just bigger Z10 with low specs, then No I won't get it.
    If its a bigger Z10 with differentiating capabilities, I will throw a hissy fit that my Z10 can't perform the same tasks, but I'll get the A10 anyway

    No. Also the device looks hideous from the leaks I've seen.

    Not a chance, why do i want 2 year old technology? Sure this will be Blackberry's "Flagship". While they may think it rocks, the specs alone make it dated before it's even up for sale. I don't care how refined BB10 is on it. The specs (Rumored) are pretty much a Z10 with a bigger screen. If you look at recent launches and upcoming launches of devices Blackberry is lining up to shoot themselves in the foot before it ever reaches the distribution channels.

    There is ZERO wow features to the phone all the players don't have already. When you are going to be charging a HIGH premium the damn phone better have some killer specs not 2 year old specs. While hardware alone does not sell phones Octo, Quad, Ram etc, it sure as heck does weigh on consumers minds when purchasing a new phone!

    A10 will be a highly overpriced device that will fail if they ask some absurd amount for lack luster hardware. Step it up and slap 3GB of memory, Quad core min a rear facing camera actually over 12 Mega pixels, 3200Mah battery the list goes on.. If you want to sell a flag ship make it a Flagship! Not others companies scrap parts from years ago that's new to Blackberry for a discount price.

    I'll go down as a maybe. This was the BlackBerry device that I had planned to get in 2013 and was disappointed that it is coming out so late in the year. I'm hoping that the A10 will be better for me than the Z10 was. However, I am thinking about not getting it as soon as it comes out though. But, I usually either buy phones when they first come out or I don't buy them at all. I'm tempted to try the Z10 again since the retail price has fallen but so far haven't pulled the trigger. I'd prefer to wait on the A10.

    So, all of this to say that I don't know! The specs won't bother me much, as long as the phone works properly.

    Deffinetly, I can't last through a day with my Z10, also I prefer to know how the devices work in practical use; and add to that that I'll like a Berry that's born with 10.2 out of the box.

    Although some may be disappointed from the leaked info, I kinda' like what i saw. Specs aren't really a deciding factor for me, but only if it works together with software and provides a smooth experience. That's all that matters "to me."

    Don't think so right now but wouldn't rule out any. Z has right size for my pockets and will not change suits for a phone, LOL, beside rumored specs.

    I will wait for the 2nd generation in fall 2014 with Full HD 2560 x 1440 (or whatever close to it) screen and bigger battery version. Better CPU also makes it even better.. with a better design where flaws are corrected of course.

    THAT one will be THE device I will use for next 4/5 years until the battery kills itself

    Just to think about it makes me happy

    I hope someone high up in BlackBerry is reading these threads on the a10... not even Kevin will chime in and try to defend this 2 year old scrap parts phone.

    I like the screen size of the A10, and the battery size. If the device lasts a full day or more, then it definitely would be worth getting.

    I will buy it as I really need the bigger screen. I played with A HTC one and my Z10 and the Z10 was out performing the HTC one. So spec wise I am only disappointed with the camera but then again I already have a good camera

    On the fast Z10

    Why do you need 25** on a screen, 720p is way more than enough....

    It's still only a phone, is your car radio also full hd or higher than full hd?

    Or does your TV have a 25** resolution? if you answer no to one of the questions above, wonder why you need this resolution on your phone.
