    So, from the Canadian carriers I've looked at so far (http://forums.crackberry.com/news-ru...g-bb10-765547/), I'm wondering how everyone feels about the pricing of BB10? At what looks like $600 off-contract, it seems to be the cheapest high-end flagship device out there. I believe Lumia is over $600 and so is the SG3, and iPhone5 is a given. If indeed it is lower-priced compared to the competition, that may help luring in potential consumers.

    Z10 is $550 from Koodo. Its too expensive to justify upgrading from a bold 9700 since I have a nexus 7.

    Rogers has it for $649 off contract I believe. $139.99 on a 3-year contract.

    Its about what I was expecting price wise, at least off contract price. I was expecting the term price to be in the $199-$249 range, pleased with it at $139

    I was expecting $549 off contract from Rogers, Bell, Telus. So, I am a bit disappointed by their off-contract pricing. I guess they'd reduce during back-to-school season.

    Where'd you get the $649 off-contract for Rogers? From their website, I calculate it to be $599.99 ($139.99 +$460). This site also indicates the same (BlackBerryOS.com - Rogers Launching BlackBerry Z10 On Feb 5th In White & Black, Offering Pre-Registration For BlackBerry Q10 Tomorrow).

    Roger's off-contract pricing is $599 actually. I was hoping for $549 though.

    If you want it for $549 just get it from Koodo they have better plans anyway.

    For me it's fine. A whole lot better than the rumoured $799 that was floating around for a while....

    $600 was my ideal price so I'm pretty happy about it. Hoping the Q10 is about the same or cheaper.

    It's only $50 off...the off-contract price for the Z10 is cheaper than SGIII (more than $600), Note2 (more than $700), and definitely iP5 ($700). Same pricing as Nokia Lumia 920 and Bold 9900. I think that's good. I was afraid they wouldn't get it below the competitors' price range but they did.

    (an aside, funny that iPhone5 isn't listed under "Smartphones" category on Rogers. I had to clicked under OS (iOS) to get to the iP5 page...funny and weird.)

    LOL - a couple of days ago, people were claiming it was $800 off contract and complaining. Not people are complaining that it's $550-$650.

    Thats why I wrote "I believe" doesn't mean thats what it was lol and you actually didn't need to calculate it, they have it right on the page if you switch from 3-year to Month-to-month lol its all good though, lets hug it out and wait for the 5th

    I'll be switching from Rogers to Bell. I just feel their mobil TV offering is better then what Rogers has to offer. My choice is in the details, which is a topic for another thread.

    Bell is $149.95 ($150) on a 3 year plan. Or $649.95 outright. Surprised at the $650 price considering, as someone else posted above me, that a few weeks ago the rumor was $799.

    I wasn't sure about the white Z10, but its clearly my favourite one. I've reserved a black one. So here's hoping that the girls at the Bell store are a little flexible. I Also hope they allow me to switch from the black phone to the white one.

    They didn't have the month-to-month option available on my browser (but Chrome has been acting all weird on me lately), so I had to calculate it out. And I wasn't intending to sound mean, I was truly asking you where you got that number because I was having problems with my browser and wasn't sure if my calculations were really accurate. (The lack of voice and facial features on the internet does make misunderstandings a problem at times.)

    I still think this phone is priced to high. Us Blackberry faithful will of course pay it, but others
    getting into smartphone will probably pick up a S4,note2,iphone5 for the same $200. At
    $99 it made more sense u have the iP4S and nokia 920 . Same mistake as the Bold 9900 priced at $299 when it launched.
    The 9800 9810 were priced right at $49.

    i think the price is a bit high, not crazy high, but if the 3 year contract is true, then that's the bigger issue. people in the US do not sign 3 year contracts for phones, i've never heard of that ever here, and i could easily see that preventing people from getting the device. that being said, i don't use subsidized pricing anyway because i refuse to be on a contract, it's cheaper to just buy the phone, so all in all i don't know why anyone gets subsidized pricing.

    was hoping for something around $550 off contract... $649 plus 15% tax is to much for me to spend on a device.

    My daughter had to pay Virgin $200 in December for an iPhone5 on a 3 yr contract so yeah, I'm not at all complaining about BB10 pricing
