By Kevin Michaluk on 29 Jan 2013 10:07 am EST

The big day is almost here!!! If you're anxiously waiting for BlackBerry 10, be sure to chime in on the comments to this blog post or hang out on our official BB10 waiting room thread, where you can win great prizes!

Remember to be back on CrackBerry tomorrow morning for 10am ET, when things get REALLY REALLY REAL. 

CrackBerry's BlackBerry 10 Waiting Room Thread



Yeah Baby, Let's do This!!!


Yeah.... it's finally here... Blackberry10 Eve! Love those double 00's in the countdown box!


I need AT&T to carry it by Feb 4th. Can't wait....


ugh I can't wait any longer.... This is worse than me waiting to go on vacation....


I want to fas forward to tomorrow. Crappy thing is my company has a breakfast meeting tomorrow. Going to be tricky to catch all the news.


I'm not sure what I'm more excited about...BB10, or Kevin getting a haircut!!! :)

kidding...BB10 of course!! Hard to believe it's finally here!


Me toooooo. I am so excited. I cannot wait. Telus is driving me crazy not having a pre-order system in place.


Yep, BB10 and Kevin's haircut. What a great combo! Can't wait to see it all!


OH MY OH MY OH MY! I'M SO EXCITED! I would love to own a BlackBerry 10!


I tried calling Rogers today to see if they have any info on BB10's and they were totally clueless, I had received a text from them saying I had a free upgrade and nobody seemed to know how to transfer me to a rep that could help me out. I must say that their customer service is the worst. iwill get my Z10 and hopefully by Saturday as its my Bday. I cant wait to get my hands on that sexy bit of kit.


I just know I won't be able to get any Zzz's until I get my Z10!


I will not get a wink of sleep tonight!


Oh yeah!!! COME OOOOOON, BLACKBERRY 10!!!! :-)


Finally!!!! Can't wait BB10 released in Hong Kong!!


Christmas in January baby!....LET'S JUST DO THIS!!!!!!!!


23.5, but who's counting.


Argh. I can't afford to be part of the BB10 revolution for a good while yet, but me and my Bold will be locked right here tomorrow since I work midnights and will have nothing but time to check out the updates! Man I was tempted to use my feeble tax return to pick one up too, but too many damn debt collectors after me for that kind of thing. Still, those of us on the OUTER-RIM (haha) are excited for the future of BB as well. Hope you guys post some video of the unveiling, or if by some chance you get to have a chat with Thorsten. At any rate: Rock it out Kevin!

Need BB10......cant......wait.....any longer..............LOL




Cat with VZW rep yesterday reveiled NOTHING abiut when they will carry it. Sooooooooooo EXITED about the release but when will I be able to get my White Z10??????


Z10 looks sooo cool and we ve delayed our upgrades so will get one as soon as available !!!


My company made the move from Lotus Notes to Google Apps for email last year, and chucked the BES in favor of phones that could sync to Google Apps without a middleman. I tried the iPhone, then a Droid Razr Maxx, but ultimately wound up returning to my Torch 9850, reconciling myself to just using the browser to check my corporate mail.

We have an office in Montreal and the head guy from there, down in the U.S. for a board meeting, just came into my office chanting, "BB10! BB10! BB10!"

I'm not alone!

It's been a long and sometimes frustrating wait, but I think us BB folks are coming out of the darkness into the light.


So how do you feel about the probability that BB10 is possibly only retaining BIS for BBM (for this OS only) & relinquishing ALL other Data based apps back to ISP's - to be charged for!


It's the final countdown. SO EXCITED!!! Can' t wait to get my first full touchscreen Blackberry.


I am counting down the minutes, have rearranged meetings at work tomorrow so I can watch the launch. My PlayBook will be by myside with ear buds and I'm ready to Rock N roll this.


Gentlemen, it has been an honour waiting with all of you


As it has with you, fine sir. *tips hat*


OMG The wait is killing me!!!!


Is that Kevin Adam Bla1ze and Michelle seated at the table at BB HQ? ;)


All I have to say is AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! Must have phone!!!!


Very excited! Now if only Verizon comes through with a release date that's in the next 10 days, I'd be ecstatic!


Hey! Ho!! LET'S GO!!! bb10


It's going to be SO Hard to fall asleep tonight know that we're so close.


Sprint......lets do it.


On the following basis as to the imminent release ..... I give you my theorum - I call it "On the Eve"

^ BB10=BS



I don't think Kevin should cut his hair until BB10 is released for the PlayBook.


Now that, Kevin, was pretty much the perfect video for the occasion. :D


On another note, this morning Apple announced that it is releasing a 128GB iPad. This was obviously done to mess with the BB10 release and is seems to be all CNBC can talk about. APPL up marginally, RIMM down ~7% as I write.


They managed to get a deal on cheaper flash that meant they didn't have to do any R&D to announce a new product. Expect a lot more of this, because they used to do that a lot in the distant past (new model variant just with bigger hard drive or a processor speed bump).
Masters of manipulation.


This video made me realise just how much I miss Joey Ramone...bittersweet moment.


I just took an entire bottle of sleeping pills so I don't have to suffer waiting for the next 24......zzzzzzzzzzzz

Josh Brolin

Rimpire strikes back tomorrow. Lets start our own army and take over the world. First order of business to declare apple illegal! Go rim go!


BB10! BB10! BB10! This is the word I search in google every 15 min.... Was not excited this much even for my birthday!!! Lol:) the hype is increasing here in india... But worried abt the late shipping... Just can't wait kevin:( pls do something boss.... bunking college tommorow to watch the live stream!!!:-)


Waited for this for so long... Hope RIM has the goods and some surprises left for tomorrow. #Pumped #BB10


Can't wait!!!! My local Bell store did confirm that BB10 will be available Feb. 5. I'll be the first in line for it.


I've followed crackberry everday since BB10 was lat delayed so I'm shur I know all the important stuff through leaks. I'm most curious about the in my hands sale date. And if skype and netflix will be coming to BB10. Not because I want to use them, so people can shut up about it. Its the last negative thing these people say about blackberry. Even know I bet 9/10 people saying its necesarry for success don't even use it themselves.


What? BlackBerry is coming out with a new phone? I thought they were in bankruptcy...

I hated hearing people say that. Now I won't have to hear it anymore. Suck it haters.




Might have to cancel my breakfast date just to be present on my Playbook when the bombs drop. Missing this Moment is not an option!!

Living Bold-ly!


I'm #1 on the Rogers list....I assume that is by store and not all across Canada?!?


Tomorrow is going to be like Christmas all over again!! I will be watching the launch event live!!!! Bring it!!!


Just spoke with Verizon customer support and they don't have the first effing clue as to when they will have the Z10 in stock. The gal I talked to didn't even know it was being released tomorrow.


I have a final job interview tomorrow and guess what!? It was scheduled at launch time!!!! Arggghhhhhh I cant believe it!!! I had everything setup for tomorrow and now this! I can picture my self there and looking at my phone insanely to get updates! I do hope it's aaaaaaalll recorded so I can play it on youtube later!
I'm so freaking excited! And that excellent article from Chris got me going even crazier!!!

Go Blackberry 10!!!


Release the Playbook BB10 Os asap!
We can be ambassadors to show people the joys of the new BB10.


ROFL : I got BB Z last week Wednesday and it is awesome, really kicking some fruity and ice creamy ass


I want some BB10 for the PlayBook. This will help me to make my decision on whether to get the phone. I hope this wait has been worth it. No more battery pulls please. (Skype and Netflix too)


I am #222 on the ROGERS pre-order waiting list. My contract, which I signed 3 years ago, expires for my bold 9790 on February 4th. The timing could not be more perfect for a February 5 contract renewal and a new Blackberry 10 in hand.


'Holy Mother' of God! Forgive the Blackberry Bashers tomorrow.


Come on T-Mobile, let's do this! Only BB10 would make me get up at the crack of dawn to go my local Starbucks tomorrow morning to watch the launch. Keep calm and rock that BB10! :-D


The worst part, besides all the waiting up to this point, is that I can't upgrade until March. At least that will give me time to do a lot of hands-on playing before I have to decide if I want the full touch or, as I used to think, the physical keyboard.

I've cleared my morning for tomorrow so let's gooooooo.....


Man I really hope RIM surprises everyone and release BB10 for the Playbook tomorrow after the announcement.


Hey Ho Lets Go indeed,

Great to see updates around BB10 accompanied by the Ramones. They did us proud with UK gigs back then (I was lucky enough to meet Dee Dee back when I was16). Really looking forward to the launch tomorrow (just hope I can control my fingers, can control my brain when I get the Z10).


Starbuck, what'ya hear

My office is abuzz with people walkin in asking....dropping comments. Tiz great to be part of this!!


uh, want the cool new stuff... time cannot go by any slower... BLACKBERRY :)


looking forward to buying a bb10 phone with a keyboard


Ready or what? Let's rock n' roll this!!!


I am so excited! CBC Montreal is interviewing me on the radio tomorrow morning about BB10!


The pain of waiting is worst than labor pains, can't wait for the birth of my BB 10!!!


Surprised to see so much excitement for a brand which is unbelievably behind the times and for a product that will undoubtedly suck. Get with the program people... buy an iPhone.


The pain of waiting is worst than labor pains, can't wait for the birth and arrival of my BB 10!!!


The insanity and excitement can keep building until that day!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hope it pans out. My first smart phone was a bb and would definitely switch back if bb10 turns out to be as good as advertised.
