If I can afford it, I may go ahead and purchase the at&t version of the Q10 at the no commitment price...

I'm thinking there is a big pent up demand of Blackberry faithful who have been holding off on upgrading, some for as long as 12-18 months, so that they could jump on the Blackberry 10 bandwagon right when it started....

I suspect the initial sales will be brisk,,,at least 500,000 units in North America for the first week...

I've been waiting a long time to get back to a BB but I do wonder how the battery life compares to other smartphones and other BBs.

The guys over at crackberry had been playing around with the new phones so much, they said they hadn't done a proper battery test Laughing
They are thinking the Z10 may be good for a days worth of normal use. Not sure what they consider "normal".
The Q10 (one with the keyboard) has a much larger battery and a smaller screen so it should do better.
I am very curious too. These are 4G phones with high pixel density screens. More there to cut down on battery life than in the past.

Now I don't expect the same life out of the Z10 but I would hope it falls between what I get from my iPhone 4s and my Galaxy S III. If not I will be very disappointed.

This is the question of the year. I think you are right. Sales should be good in the beginning.
One difference between this launch and Microsofts is that there should be a pent up demand for blackberries from crackberry addicts needing their fix Very Happy
