BlackBerry today announced that AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile USA, and Verizon Wireless will all be offering details regarding preorders for the Z10 and the Q10 in the next 24 hours. RIM did not say when they will go on sale in the U.S., but the Z10 is launching in the U.K. tomorrow, and in Canada on Friday. RIM said pricing and availability will be announced individually by carriers around the world closer to their actual launch. None of the U.S. carriers have announced a launch date, but the Wall Street Journal reports that neither the Z10 nor the Q10 will reach store shelves before the middle of March. According to RIM CEO Thorsten Heins, the delay is due to the testing processor needed by American wireless network operators. "They do the best they can," said Heins. "Would I have loved to see it earlier? Absolutely. Make no mistake everyone's trying to pull the date in."

LOTS of people, and people I know dumped BB devices in favour of iPhone, or Android, and with good reason - besides these upcoming two devices, BB has been releasing devices that were obsolete before they even left the factory. Build quality aside - people need good specs, and apps.

For a BB, or almost any smartphone, 800mhz is not enough, and a 1000mah battery is definately not enough.
RIMs stock will go up. I've been watching stocks lately. Apple has been tanking, and google ha...

Well the reason it took so long is because the market changed very suddenly, everyone was caught flat footed by the release of the iPhone, and then by the release of Android. Look at what the market was before the iPhone, you had Blackberry, Windows ...

I have a sneaky suspicion

That this phone will do worse than we suspect. I wish it would have come out about a year or so ago. I think it is to late for Rim.
Worse than I suspect is a complete flop.

I disagree somewhat.
If this phone had been out a year ago, ...
