    Anyone know the date for India?

    India's smartphone market is far from saturated and they have a population of 1.2 or 1.3 billion. Much bigger market than the USA and no customer loyalty yet.

    As an investor, this is why I bought RIMM stock. Does anyone know when these people are getting their phones?

    Sounds like week 3 in February, granted I never heard of this site:
    Blackberry Z10 Release Date India

    A second article saying sometime in February:
    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/t...w/18264414.cms

    This is starting to make more sense.
    RIMM first needs to sell:
    1) where there is broadband
    2) Where Blackberry brand is stronger
    3) Where saturation by iOS and Android has not occured.

    I'm starting to become less shocked that the USA is last. If you want to know if the USA is going to get it earlier, start wathcing the news from India to act as a leading indicator.

    On Jan 26, it was said that India will get BB10 2-3 weeks after launch. Source is India managing director, Sunil Dutt:

    Yes, to bad India wasn't getting BB10 right away. The worm has not quite turned enough on Apple but it is coming. There will be some fruit to pick in the US market come the spring time when phones are available in the US. But India, get em delivered ASAP!! BB is going with its strong markets first. US is not that strong and it is a battle to win market share from Apple and Android. Go BB Go!!
