Is BB going to ship used STL100-1 LE from EMEA to China?

In a recent development, BB has recalled STL100-1 LE devices from EMEA region to replace them with STL100-2 LE. On the other hand, hundreds of developers in China are waiting for their Z10 LE which will obviously be STL100-1 (as there is no LTE in China). 

 

So, I am concerned (and alarmed) how we are going to be affected by this recall. What will Blackberry do with all the recalled and used LE devices? Since they will not sell LE devices in the market, are they going to scrap them? Or, will they send those used devices to other developers?

 

Someone from BB, please clarify the situation.

BlackBerry would be better off delivering STL100-1 models to developers who reside in areas where the device and carrier do not have the LTE (4G) network band. Replace or swap STL100-1 devices to STL100-2 to developers that have carriers that support the LTE (4G) network band?

They will send them to third world countries ( read countries that nobody cares about ) because scrapping them means waste of resources.

ha ha ha... @borceg, I think it's okay to send Those devices with choice (either used LE or ordinary Z10) to the developers at the end of the line (12900+) . But sending those devices to those who are already waiting for their packages right now will be immoral and injustice. And sending them to China will be sort of racist.

I heard that BlackBerry is sending LEs in the order of when developers were accepted for the offer. Meaning that if you have recently applied, you will not be getting your Limited Edition Z10 anytime soon.
