I rushed to the link to view the webcast only to find that it isn't starting for another 8 hours! lol
Guess I'll go sleep and wake up to watch it then!

Playbook is unable to play the webcast! Way to go Blackberry India!! Paid Rs.27,000/- for this brick!!

Rootbrian

IT'S NOT A BRICK! Maybe you need to enable flash. That's why it won't play. Oh that's right, you don't have a playbook.

world traveler and former ceo

THIS should be very exciting!!! .....

Great news. This launch is going to rock.

The Z10 sold out in every country that it has been launched in,and India will be no different, other then the fact that it will be done in record time.
Sell out happening by the end of tomorrow.

1 million phones out the door.

Thor better really up the production.

I wonder what will happen when the keyboard version comes out, and they sell 60 million of those in the first year.

Arabianhorse

I would just love to see the Z10 or Q10 in the US before spring ends! Good luck India

jatb0y

The price needs to be right as well. Think 45,000 Rupees is on the high end. They need to launch around the 38,000 Rupees mark....

Plus I hope they really explain and clear up the BIS issue. I would hate to see Indian consumers confused like the South African one..

BBNation

The people who buys these phones it makes no diffrence to them to pay 45k vs 38k at launch time. I agree that it should reduced to 38ks after the launch rush, hype is over..First week it will be bought out by rich filthy indians including celebs, business owners, Remeber 5000 BES servers in India..

SDTRMG

BlackBerrys slowly taking back the smartphone game. USA your time is coming.

get your "TeeRapMoneyGang" app on bb10!

Efeezy4Sheezy

Just bring it to the US already. I'm really considering getting on the Iphone bandwagon. This waiting and watching every other country get love is pissing me off big time. Stil no word of when or anything. Crackberry, dig deep and get us some solid info before I pull my damn hair out and jump ship.

Live event happening now in mumbai, first BBM video call made to ranbir kapoor by Vivek Bhardwaj... Finally BBM voice n video came to india

Deepzkonnected

Priced at Rs. 43490 - Isnt that a bit too high. I somehow feel this is gonna hurt BB in India. BTW is the launch on now? I thought it was to start at 7:30 pm IST

nikhildhoot

Wasnt the launch supposed to be at 730 pm? or is it just going to be webcast at 730 pm?

harshadpatel

The price of Z10 at Rs.43,490 i.e close to 790 USD is way too high.

satyenpoojary

As an old blackberry fanboy, I think Blackberry India has hit the nail on ITS OWN head!

This is ridiculous pricing, and no sir, as an early adopter of the Playbook, the Storm, the Storm 2,, the 9900 I think I will give this a pass... And that I will do with mighty disappointment.
I worked with a popular telecom company in India, and I know about the vanilla BB10 devices in the sub 20K mark, but I DID not want a vanilla variant and I DID not want to be fleeced once again as well.
Utter disappointment... I think I will smash my BB devices and post a YouTube video for the kicks..

mehta_aseem

i agree with you mate!!...43900/- !!! WTF was the BB - India CEO Sanjay Dutt thinking ..... with S3 priced at 26 to 29k even hardcore BB fans like me are pissed off!!

What a piss off....no fan fare ...no news paper ads.....just some random posts on the net regarding Ranbir Kapoor launching the BB10 platform.......i feel Ranbir is diluting his class by pormoting a brand which even the hardcore BB fans are detesting from being associated with.....i still feel the BB7 powered devices rock better than the BB10....really pissed off i am better off buying the Lumia 920 or the iphone 5 which are available in awesome finance schemes...also the HTC One is worth waiting for......FUCK YOU BB.......waste waiting for the BB10 since last 2 years and showing loyalty....even my purchase of Playbook was a waste....

Rootbrian

Screw you too, if you cannot appreciate anything blackberry offers. SAVE UP!!! Don't let the troll guard slap you in the face on the way out the door.

Rootbrian

Don't let the hammer smash your hands on the way out the rusted old door.

bhrgvr

Launch starts... now... the announcements have started..

MD India comes on stage...

bhrgvr

Ranbir is with a Q10 and Z10... I hope they announce the launch here in India... I might just switch my order to Q10.... :)

bhrgvr

Yeah... my carrier Airtel is going to carry it.... hopefully on launch

krackerjack69

This launch was painful to watch! You would think after a few launches BB would learn to bring a little more excitement to these events. Ranbir looked like he was winging it without doing any preparing.......typical though lol. Vivek couldn't get out of that place fast enough lol Price? come on get with the program already. Want to sell a few more BB drop the price a wee bit. Oh well they know more than me. :)

Vithulan L Nathan

honestly, if I was Vivek, i'd probably run out of that train-wreck as fast as I possibly could. It was a phone launch, along with a whole new platform, and what did they do? DANCE On stage for most part, along with a stand up comedian who desperately tried to get applause but failed! Poor Thor, he must be biting his fingers off!

pepidick

WTF was that I can't belive I sat thru that S#4@!!!!!! Blackberry needs to take Charge of this Launches, if you came in half way into it you would have had no idea it was suppose to be ALL about BB10..... Is was all Bollywood It SUCKED......... >:O

Kishore Thaakur

I so agree with you guys! Couldn't help but compare it to the Jan 30 webcast. It was EMBARRASSING! Mr.Sunil Dutt was so in awe of the Bollywood star - Ranbir Kapoor! He was almost praying that the latter would take him home. And OMG: The continuous microphone fiasco. They couldn't even get Vivek's collar mic working either! The poor guy had to hold a mic in one hand and give the demo with the other. He too must have been super embarrassed. No wonder he ran away from this circus asap. They should have hired someone professional to handle the show!

Rootbrian

Chill out people. -.- #facepalm

Jimcmf

O my ...... I am not from India .... but I think that needed some polishing.

Hey everyone from India - rush out and get your Z10 TODAY!
Before they are all gone. It is an awesome phone.
