BB really should stick to hardware and adopt Android. Massive dearth of QWERTY's these days. They's clean up.

I was disappointed when PINK was nowhere to be seen at Dubai Mall.

They will SELL BBM to Android and iOS marketplace. This will get them hella lot of money.

Android lover, 20 Jun 2013people still buys Blackberry :D That fat body with tiny display,... moreYep I am one who still buys them. Had the Galaxy S3 for 1 year. Got the Q10 3 weeks ago. The Galaxy S3 has been relegated to a backup phone with a foreign SIM card.
You may think it is a joke. Fair enough. I don't. This Q10 is the best phone I have ever had.

BlackBerry has only 3.86% market share and if they bring the BBM messenger to Android and iOS then i don't think anyone will buy a BB phone? I think if Windows phone 8 fail, Nokia will use BB10 OS or even buy the company? Anyone with any ideas?

I was lucky to have hands on the Q5 today at the BlackBerry store in Dubai Mall. Must say its a fantastic device, very smooth, excellent typing & hub managment. Not to forget its an 4G LTE version only for AED 1499. Red colour is cool and i think Youths are gonna flaunt it!!!

Anonymous, 19 Jun 2013Going by current trend, BBRY will be history in 2014.BlackBerry will be around they've survived this long with outdated products now they will release 6 modern devices... I'd pay the premium for a Q5 - drop it and i bet it won't break, that alone is worth the extra money!

Yes this price is a bit high but I'm sure it will drop somewhat shortly... Prefer to use a physical keyboard, BB security, and think the new QNX Operating System has real potential going forward. I'll be supporting BlackBerry's come back... Commendable that BlackBerry spent two years developing a new Operating System not just adopting free Android!!! Ad-Droid

This is a good phone with decent price. Everyone has they own definition of a decent price. Mine would be 300-350 for this phone.
QNX OS is very impressive stable and secure OS. Best part is it will not be lagging.
