• Blackberry 10 to be $650 no contract launching Feb 5th

    Just got word that RIM's BB10 device will be launching on Feb 5th. It will be $650 no contract and will be available in black or white.

    Dealers should be getting stock Jan 30th.

    Who's excited? I'm pretty pumped for the launch next week. Anyone going to get one? Is your iPhone/Galaxy for sale right now?

      That's reasonable. I think it will sell at that price

      I was just at the BlackBerry 10 demo event, it will be interesting to see how it takes off. They said there will be 70,000 apps available at launch.

      Canadian source, or are you doing a conversion of Carphone Warehouse's leak?

      That is if the Canadian Govt will allow the sale! Their watching it VERY closely. To be honest ... I don't think RIM should sell anything. Manufacturing is fine as a separate entity ... then outsource manufacturing to another vendor.

      (PS: don't believe everything an analyst tells you - ALWAYS do your own research like I did in my blog!)
