Retailers Report Strong Demand for the BlackBerry Z10


The BlackBerry Z10 has launched at a handful of carriers over the past week in Canada, the UAE and the UK. Every one of them is reporting strong demand which isn’t surprising because of how many people have been waiting for the device to launch.

How to get a carrier-subsidized BlackBerry Bold before you are eligible for upgrade


The Smoke Labs mobile entertainment and lifestyle blog QuicklyBored has posted an anecdote about haggling with carriers to get a new device at the carrier-subsidized price while you’re still on contract. The author, W4lnut, had a Nokia N95 with 2.5 years left on his contract, and he managed to get the BlackBerry Bold for $199 on a renewed 3 year contract.

BlackBerry Bold on Rogers going for $649.99 w/o contract


BlackBerry Bold pricing on Rogers

If for some reason you wanted to spend more than the $399.99 asking price on a three-year contract with Rogers the BlackBerry 9000 (like to roam with an AT&T plan instead of going with Rogers), it looks like you’ll be able to grab the Bold for $649.99 without any strings attached. That’s the standard $250 that usually gets subsidied on BlackBerrys, but when you take a look at the BlackBerry 8220 getting knocked down to $50 from $599.99, you have to wonder how much more favourably Rogers wants the iPhone to look versus the Bold. The Rogers outlet here in Ottawa has the Bold on display, which makes me think that it’s ready for sale, but still nothing on an announcement, or any presence in the online store. Full release could be available as soon as tomorrow. The big question is are you getting one?
