Some Canadian carriers have priced this promising but yet unproven phone at $650.

Koodo is selling it at a way more reasonable $550. Kudos to Koodo. I may actually pick one up.

That is impressive. Being a die hard Samsung fan, this might be a difficult decision lol

I just discovered a way to watch US Netflix on my iPhone, so that killed off any chance of the Z10 being my daily driver, but I'll definitely be getting one for review purposes and I sincerely want BlackBerry (I guess all the RIP RIM talk was partially right, as they've retired the company name) to do well. I grew up in Kitchener-Waterloo and have lots of friends and family there so I'd like the local economy to be as healthy as possible. Not to mention that I hope to move back there sometime in the near future.

I'll probably wait a month or so to pick up a second-hand one so that reviewing it won't cost me anything as I should be able to get the money back by re-selling it.

I use www.unblock-us.com for my home solution. With a rooted Android device, you may be able to use this service if you can find a reliable way to change the DNS settings over mobile broadband. I haven't had much luck. Sometimes it would work. Most of the time it wouldn't.

It's missing a few key cross-platform apps for me at the moment (One Note, Sky Drive, Netflix, and a few others) so it's not likely to become my daily driver just yet, but I'm excited to try one out.

Promising yes.. not selling a lot of them at work but most people are hesitant and that is understandable. If they can continue to improve their app situation then I can see it catching on.

I'm saying like a few weeks after launch, the shortages should decrease/eventually stop soon aka "getting into things" :P

Not with the launch coming soon in the US, although it's not going to be huge there, there is alot of stores to fill.

I'm talking about Canada and even when its released in the US, it won't effect Canadian stock.

Selon BMO ce jour, seulement 275.000 exemplaires du Z10 ont été vendus depuis son lancement par RIM, loin deriere Apple, il faut donc s'attendre a ce que RIM réduise le prix du BB Z10 selon BMO.
got mine last week thnx to koodoo..only paid 100 with my tab

You had a positive balance of $300? Sounds like you were way overdue for an upgrade... Or have massive monthly bills.
