    They already have $100 devices. They're called the BlackBerry Curve series.

    Why $100? Why not a free one?

    Free device + a coffee would be a winner.

    Actually, why don't they just pay everyone a $100 bucks, cause that is what they would do with a $100 dollar phone. A $100 dollar phone is either a lost leader or cheap as anything. Why would you want a crappy phone?

    BlackBerry is in business to make money. At a cost point of $100 you'd be getting a phone with terrible hardware, or have BlackBerry take a loss on each device. Samsung and Amazon may be able to afford taking a loss on the hardware side of their operations, but BlackBerry is not in that position.

    I bought a Q5 for 147 dollars. Great deal if you can still find then. I like to think of them as a passport mini!

    So you want Blackberry to lose money on each phone? The hardware is not free. BB10 is not free. Packaging, distribution, support, advertising is not free. How much do you think all that would cost? HINT: Over a $100 dollars.

    You can get Z10s and Q10s for under $200 now. That is a great deal for the OS.

    Contrary to all nay sayers I believe that:
    A) BlackBerry is fully capable of having profitable 60-70 dollar OS7 phone
    B) this is actually great solution for developing countries (not BRIC or Nigeria developing , but Sub-Saharan developing)
    C) BIS is actually great for those countries as well as revenue from it would help BlackBerry Balance sheets.

    Possible, but the worst thing for BlackBerry to do is prolong the life of BBOS.

    And as for the OP, BlackBerry isn't exactly a no-R&D, no-frills, no labor laws Chinese OEM.

    As BB has a brand reputation issue already... what would a cheap phone add to the mix... to me it would simply dilute the brand and divert the ship from its current and what may be a good direction....

    whats wrong with some people? maybe someone cant afford more than 100? maybe they dont need a phone a more expensive phone and a low or mid end phone will do everything they need and want.

    why is everyone so pessimistic?
    having an entry level phone is never a bad idea.
    especially for existing iOS/Android users those who want to seek how os10 works and who knows, they eventually might fall in love with this ecosystem. (like i did 2 days ago with never-unlockable sprint q10)

    i guess this kind of response comes from how unstable Blackberry is as a company now, but if they really can offer a decent, entry-level qwerty os10 device, i can name more than 5 people around me that i'm sure they will look into them seriously and likely make a purchase.

    .... and i know that will never become true considering BB couldn't even ditch Classic's so-old Snap S4 CPU to match prices.. too sad

    If they can't afford something more than $100 for a phone, then maybe they shouldn't have a mobile phone at all? A zero price contact phone might be a better choice for them. What is the use of a $100 dollar off contract phone if they can't afford the monthly payments.
