Companies are always in it for people, their stockholders.

Bah, was hoping the BB CEO sent the memo via iPhone. lol. Besides that the BB 10 will be slow to adopt since it requires enterprises to upgrade the BES server. Currently for my company it is not cost effective to do so unless free upgrade which I will be shocked if the BES upgrade is not offered at a significantly reduced price or indeed free.

Or they could have released a non carrier branded model and sold it directly to the consumer, or to smaller cell providers. I live in Alaska, and one of our cell providers was the first company to launch the Galaxy S2 in the united states. How you ask, because they sold the unlocked international version.

Its not "testing" that has to be done on the big carrier phones, its ensuring their spyware works and you can't use a competitors sim card.

Except that they aren't. The act of unlocking is illegal, but purchasing a phone which is unlocked from the start is perfectly legal.

Huh it is free to upgrade to BES 10. Or ditch it and use ActiveSync if you want with Exchange.

My contract is up in March - I like Android way more than iOS but I'm always looking for alternatives. I'll be checking out the Blackberry Z10 and the Nokia Lumia 920 (Windows Phone 7) when my contract is up.

I would get this phone but FIDO here in Canada only offers 2 year contract and wants $350 :( on the other hand other companies offer this phone for $140 to $150 with 3 year. So how could the 3rd year take over $200 off?
