    International Price $449 (shop.blackberry.com),
    Local Price halos parang walang tax (may +$15), directly converted. Nice job BB!
    Pero yung iPhone…

    Nangangarap na nman ng gising itong si BlackBerry. Very very bad business. Tanga lang talaga ang bibili nito.

      wala ka lang pambili.. yun yun! haha until now di ko pa rin maiwan ang Q10 ko kahit may note 4 na akong gamit. mas nauuna pang dumating ang gmail ko sa Q10 kesa sa note. best mobile OS pa rin for me ang BB OS. yun nga lang konti ang apps. Quality apps – iOS. Best screen and features – android. Best implementation ng mobile UI – BB OS. No idea about windows phone since di ko pa naexperience but napaka interesting din ng OS nila.

      BlackBerry phones are not targeted for the masses. Most of its users are professionals or people in the corporate world (na gnagamit ilang company phones).
      Now, you tell me they are “tanga”?? hehe

    • Jhay says:

      Siya siguro ang sinasabi niyang “tanga” kasi hindi naman niya afford bumili ng BlackBerry. Palamunin lang ng magulang hanggang bilmoko lang ang alam! May business ka pang nalalaman balik ka muna sa grade 1, totoy!

    • leeto says:

      Blackberry is for us professionals, not for you financially dependent sa magulang. Besides I trust BB for its security. Karamihan ng heads of states, BB ang cp for obvious reasons.

    Finally! Kudos to all staff of MemoXpress! Gudjab, BlackBerry!

    With those specs, dapat mas mura…

    Blackberry is a dying business. Maybe huling hinga na nya to.

    The last hope of BB is developing countries like in south africa. Kumikita pa naman yung Z3 in some asian countries(pero bagsak ang market share) but because of low cost china smartphones, BB may not survive sooner. BB is popular in corporate world but it was before 2011 only. They are bringing back the classic kasi yun talaga ang kumita. As of now, wala ng appeal sakin.

  7. dyimmy says:

    and unfortunately for them, the adoption of iPhone in the corporate world is growing traction na rin

  8. Red impulse says:

    The best para sakin ang bb. Solid security feats. Kaya lang konti lng apps nya. But then for works that require security like head of the state and considering national security. Go for bb
