I mean the company is in such bad shape now. I wonder how the Z30 will do. Going from a $83 billion dollar company to a $4.2 billion dollar one in 5 years or so is pretty damn bad.

I don't think this will benefit anyone. I think they need to make a restructuring, combine with another company, or just say goodbye. The Z10 was a decent entry, the Q10 was basically the, showing they are still stuck in the past.

Stuck in the past? There were a ton of people yearning for a physical keyboard.....Unfortunately they released it too late....with software no one really cares about.

I like how you consider stuck in the past as only ONE feature. Where did I say it was due to the keyboard?

Well, besides a keyboard and BB10 being in infancy...what else can I mention?...

Surprised they're going on to release the Z30. I've yet to this day, to see anyone using the Z10 (or Z20....whatever it is) which is quite shocking considering that everywhere I go, everyone always seem to be using a smartphone in some way or fashion. I would've expected to atleast seen it once by now.

Yeah, come to think of it, I've never seen one either. I see the older model BBs, but never a Z10 or Q10.
