Agreed, I been waiting for a full year now, what was the point of the New York based event when your product is still months away?

Seems awfully stupid to me. Hey New York, great to be here, we wanted to announce our new product will be available here in March.

For one there wasn't a thing in the presser we didn't already know (except Alicia Keys, Skype and Kindle). If they weren't going to have them ready right away they could have at least announced plans for some monster super phone that trumps all others via specs.

Wow, so I guess the UK is the new BlackBerry capital of the world. I was shocked that they are getting first dibs. Canada isn't too far behind at February 5 but... just shocked. People in the USA... let the riots begin at your local carrier stores, lol

I know Vodafone UK uses TMO US's 4G bands. Does anyone know what other carriers also use TMO US's 4G band? I am buying out of contract so I'm paying full fare anyway - may as well get it now.

Z10 @£36 a month x 24 month contract =£864 Thats a lot, think ill stick with my Torch 9800 for a few months more,but i do like the Q10 though.

Why is USA getting it so late? Because carriers have to get it first, install their spy apps and key loggers, and modify and LOCK standard features so they can charge us. Otherwise I strongly recommend getting it unlocked. I really hope T-Mobile offers BES in their Value Plan, because it makes no sense to pay full price for the phone and still be locked in a contract with same price as those who pay only $200 for the phone. Pricing in USA is all out of whack.. What do you expect, fake competition.. they all get together and screw the mobile subscribers.

I'm a big bb fan, but c'mon £36 per month on contract! That's the same price as an iphone 5 and £10 more than a galaxy s3. Who is gonna choose this, other than diehard bb fans.

No chance !

£479 for the sim free phone, I really like Blackberries but I'm currently on a Nexus 4 which cost £239 sim free and haven't seen anything compelling enough to make me think about switching

already got it!! (twitter winner for London)

the phone is seriously good! im loving the camera especially and the keyboard is a dream.

it does take some getting used to though but im getting better at it.

my only complaint is the poor apps :(
