BlackBerry 10 not until March are you FREAKING kidding me?

[ Edited ]

It is a total waste of PRECIOUS BlackBerry marketing dollars to hype a Phone during the Superbowl that won't be available for another month.  Advertising Vaporware won't win customers back.

You guys did it right for UK.  Hyped the phone and you had it on Sale the next day.  Why you didn't limit this "launch" event to UK and Canada is beyond me.

I been lugging around my slow and outdated phone for sometime.  This is a complete slap in the face to the dedicated BlackBerry user and it's not going to impress iPhone or Droid users.

Great job you pissed off one of your best fans!

Whose idea was it to release it in the U.S. in March?  Would you like to chance a guess?

 

I'll give you a hint:  It wasn't BlackBerry's idea, it was the major U.S. carriers that decided it so perhaps your negativity is misdirected.  Had it been up to BlackBerry, the phones would be on the streets worldwide today (as they already are in the U.K.......as decided by the carriers there)..

 

 

Cheers.  :smileyhappy:

I understand that technically and factually you are correct.  Optically it looks like a fumble.

Hey here is our SuperBowl commercial for a product that you may forget about before its released.  Meanwhile their competition seems to **bleep** phones. LOL  Admittedly I could have been a little more diplomatic in my complaints, but for a brand that is rebranding itself as the brand of action, this kind of flies in the face of that creedo.

While waiting does suck, it gives more time for the hoopla surrounding the phones to build.  There will be so much built-up anticipation when they finally hit the market that people will go crazy and will buy two or three each.  Okay, maybe not.

I disagree, you either have Hoopla or you don't, waiting generally diminishes the Hoopla.

Re: BlackBerry 10 not until March are you FREAKING kidding me?

Yeah I am realizing this, it seems that Europe and Canada don't take as long OR likely load less bloaty **bleep** software to the phone.

How can I get an unlocked phone to work with ATT?
