Good for you Verne. Sadly, for a business like Koodo, volume is key and if only a few customers want the device, it doesn't make sense for them to bring this on the tab (i.e. compared to demand for devices like the S5 of the iPhone 6).

Considering Blackberry's marketshare in Canada, it'll be interesting to see the volumes of consumers interested (not including corporate users) in the device. If the demand isn't high, I doubt Koodo will offer this as part of the TAB. You can always buy it outright I guess....

Tell that to the millions of Canadians who pre-ordered the iPhone 6.

I like BB 10 but Blackberry has made some egregious mistakes and released new hardware far too slowly after the 9900. The Z10 was too little too late and the Z30 is cool too but still behind the times, plus there's no sequel. The passport looks interesting but also uncomfortable and the classic is what the Q10 should have been from the beginning.

Yeah, I agree and I think the Classic will sell well although not in the millions like all the carriers want today. A phone today has to be "pretty" and have a ton of almost useless buttons and apps.

Well... Blackberry is all about the buttons (re: keyboard) :)
