Re: Blackberry Q5

as far as I understand things, the Q5 will not be available for US/Canada.

Re: Blackberry Q5

It's target audience is "emerging markets". North America has emerged already.


Cheers. :smileyhappy:

Re: Blackberry Q5

seriously, these markets are more than simply "emerging markets".

BlackBerry is selling very well all across the world, except in the USA.

The decision has been taken to release the Q5 in countries where people will appreciate it (= buy and be happy with it) for what it is: a budget BlackBerry phone, and who won't mistakenly compare it to a high-end device from other brands.

example:
in the USA many people (including journalists & bloggers) have compared the budget 8520 to the iPhone4, to declare Apple the clear winner with the final conclusion: "Apple is better because the camera has a flash". People don't do that in other countries.



*****

That being said, buying a Q5 will be possible even if you live in the USA. Just like people in Iran can buy iPhones.
