    Excellent news. Please post observations, pics of line ups, level of reception. I'm getting addicted to the launch parties.

    Usually all stores in malls stay open to around 10pm. however when there are launches like the Z10 they obviously will extend so I would say 1am for today on most stores launching the Z10.

    LOL! Uh....I won't even address the absurd "the only explanation" line. :-)

    If that is the reason, it certainly would show why BB can't launch in the US. If modest (by all accounts) sales in the UK and Canada have depleted all supply, then BB has some incredibly serious issues. I don't think (???) that could be the case.....that would point to....incompetence on a level I can't even fathom! Given the delays in launching in the first place, only being able to supply small numbers to the UK and Canada would be nothing short of complete failure for a "global" launch.

    I am uncertain about the abilities of Heins and co. - they have a lot to prove and so far it's been a pretty mixed bag, but I still think you are doing them a disservice with your allegation.
    obviously Blackberry has known that the US was not going to sell any time soon, and so only fools would make inventory based on US sales,
    clearly Blackberry is going to make inventory they think they can move.....

    The only explanation for this is that sales in UK and Canada is beyond even the top end of BB's own expectations, and they had to divert supply away from UAE.
    The units are carrier specific so you can't just send them somewhere else. I doubt they can turn production and shipping around that fast.

    A market that is 5 times larger than Europe and they should not consider it when estimating production?

    Blackberry did consider the US and found it launches a few weeks later and obviously they will plan production accordingly....

    Okay Tim, you are talking about one of the most difficult aspects of manufacturing.
    They don't just take what they sold in one country and multiply it by five, they would go broke that way.
    Besides we are not BlackBerry's customers, the carriers are so if they order X then say they want an additional Y, that amount isn't just waiting in a warehouse typically.

    There was no line up.. People who had pre ordered would walk in with their receipt and pick up their phones. I saw people get turned away because they had not pre ordered.
    At least 15 phones were sold during the time that I was in the store.
    The guy told me that the stock they received was less than the amount of pre orders that they have.
    All in all, I am very happy so far!

    I'd say this is strong evidence that the reason the phone isn't available in the US us because they haven't made enough. Poor execution. SMH

    or maybe its because the carriers havent finished testing yet.
    I have a feeling it is more likely from the carrier side as many of them have committed to a large amount of iphone 5 stock and probably would like to shift this.

    Or you can say demand beat even Blackberries expectations to the point they can not even make the Z10 fast enough. This is a good problem to have. earning are going to surprise and the SP will rocket higher. Buy on any fake weakness. Use the shorts to buy cheap shares.

    This is great. I just hope when the earnings call come, we do see BB perform well. BB is surely trying to take things upward slowly eh?.

    You guys also need to keep in mind that there are different variants of the Z10, so Canadian handsets cannot be diverted to the UAE or vice versa.I believe the principle is the same for the U.K. as well.

    This is why I bought a UK one on Dubbizle instead of waiting for Axiom, they kept making false promises.It started of on the 1st then pushed back to 4th then to 6th and then to the 10th and now still they are not selling it.I cancelled my Preorder and bought it online and have had the phone for 4 days now. I know most people wont want to pay the extra mark up people have priced it on Dubbizle but for me it was worth it.

    For one I got the phone earlier and 2nd is I got it with LTE since its UK spec. that alone is worth it.

    TBH I spoke with an axiom employee that I know and he confirmed to me that they do have the phones in stock but would not be able to sell them till the 10th.(this was like 4 days back) I have no idea why they haven't started today....
    how much did you pay for it?
