    I really think that…. this is gonna sell…. like…. a lot.

    • r0v3rT3N

      If it is marketed correctly, at this price, it will sell.

    • Skazzberry 2.0

      Sorry at $350 outright, the Nexus 4 is already a million times better.

    • hfghgfhf

      The keyboard might appeal some but the OS doesn’t help.
      Also the price is too high if you compare to Nexus 4.

    • hoo dat

      Why would you compare to an N4? I can’t think of two phones anymore different from each other. It’s like comparing a bus to a bicycle. The most obvious difference is the Z5 has a physical keyboard, that alone makes the comparison moot.

    • southerndinner

      Doubt it. It’s too expensive and there are much better phones at similar price points

    • southerndinner

      to people who haven’t used a real smartphone, sure

    • VapidRapidRabbit

      A real smartphone? LMAO.. sure.

  • skullan

    I mine just pick up one of these.

  • gnote

    What, no Rogers exclusive?

  • Balls O’Steele

    Worth $299 max

    • Nauman.Choudhry

      And if it was priced at $299, you would say worth $199-249 max. People are never happy, it could be priced for a $1 and someone will say its still to high.

    • Balls O’Steele

      Obviously the Z10 and Q10 was priced too high because they sure didn’t sell many.

    • Sean-Paul

      where did you get the numbers that they didnt sell many?

    • hfghgfhf

      If they sold a lot, we’d know it, because they would brag about their numbers. Just like Apple and Google do.

    • Rich

      I support BBRY, but based on shipments in the last ER of only 2.5 million BB10 devices, they certainly didn’t sell many at all. Take note that a shipment is different from a sale as well.

  • joseph turco

    i might get one. at 350 thats affordable

  • Alvin Avanzado

    I think $350 is kinda steep for a unit. Moto might be coming out for $299 off contract.

    • Sean-Paul

      wow….you must be psychic. Moto X coming out at $299 off contract… damn. Please also tell me this weeks lotto numbers as well.

  • Chad Hammad

    Affordable entry to bb 10, can’t hurt!

    • southerndinner

      It can when BB10 is awful!

    • Sean-Paul

      uh huh… thats coming from someone who has never used the OS. nice try though

    • southerndinner

      I tried a Z10 on a demo line for work… It was awful. Had to use it for three months on the sales floor to keep it, gave it up in under a month to go back to my Note II

      Never again

    • Sean-Paul

      awful because you didnt know how to use gestures? awful because of what reason?

      sorry but your example still holds no merit. I had the z10 and now the q10 and an HTC One and 4S. daily driver… Q10 because it works faster than the other platforms.

    • southerndinner

      Awful because the battery was medicocre, the gestures weren’t really that useful (yes I knew how to use them) and it wasn’t nearly as intertwined with my Google services as the Note was. Even without Google services as a factor, I doubt I would have kept it.

    • VapidRapidRabbit

      A non-Google product isn’t an integrated into Google services as a Google product? OMG… how crazy!! I never would have guessed.

    • southerndinner

      It’s a legitimate issue because BBRY offers no compelling alternatives

  • Rich

    Hrmm.. thought these devices weren’t intended to hit North America — may be pressure from either low sales, needing an entry level phone, or the fierce competition from Nokia.

  • Elky Monroe

    I think it’ll find traction in the budget market. Besides, some people just want a mobile phone that makes good calls with good email ability. Not everyone wants a pocket computer.

  • southerndinner

    FAIL

    • VapidRapidRabbit

      Look at this d ickhead troll… how pathetic.
