    Rogers price increase. Here's the source..

    Notable carrier handset price changes (both on sale and increases) | MobileSyrup.com

    Also, I was at one of the larger shopping centre's in Ottawa. The Source sold out, Best Buy mobile rep says sales really strong. Wireless wave sold out, Telus sold out.

    Hmmm. And yet that one firm justified saying BB10 is not selling well based off an empty Rideau Centre mall in Ottawa. Ironic? This is a discussing move by rogers.

    The 139 price was a month long initial promotion or something. The price was always 149

    There must be a way that I can spin this in a negative light. Let me see, I know maybe the battery sucks and it just takes extra power in the store to keep it juiced up. Or maybe, the Z10 is being targeted by shoplifters which means I need to make more money on the ones that remain. Oh crap, that one doesn't the work. Let me think really hard. Oh I know, I have to increase the price because it is the only way I can move the iPhone5.

    Promotions usually have end dates. Telus had a $50 trade-in promotion which ends Feb 28. This was their launch price.

    The price went up because they were only subsidizing it for a certain period of time.

    This is not a good or bad sign.

    Yes, let us discuss.

    Price was always $149.99 - $10 off was a limited time promotion, hence the "LIMITED TIME" banner on the website.

    Yes, and there was and now we've reached it. Rogers said it was a limited time promotion right from the beginning.

    And if you are not selling, you extend the promotional period. Marketing 101, move junk that doesn't sell. Deadline inventory cost you money.

    Sure. They aren't extending an intro sale, means they must be beating estimates. Why not? If already trying to make a desperate, unsupported conclusion to support one's cognitive bias, why not add another link the implausibility chain! The rest of us can live on planet earth, and say this is a non-event.

    I remember the PlayBook's reduced price was just temporary too. Then it got extended when sales did not pick up.

    Yep, and if BB10 tanks long term we will see all kinds of sales. If BB10 were tanking so catastophically - I can't imagine how bad that would have to be for RIM executives to be working on sales gimmicks already - then yes, we might see an extension of this TEN DOLLAR promo ;-)

    10 isn't much. I don't care who you are unless you are the age of 7 or under. I literally make that in 10 min. It's not a bad sign at all

    When I got mine in order to get it for 139 you had to do a mail in rebate. So i actually will have 189 charged to my account and I will get the $50 rebate soon. Wonder if the price is 199 minus a 50$ rebate to make it 149?
