    A10 buy on launch day or wait six months

    Hi as a Z10 owner late to the party, bought July not end January, so not early adopter and expected drop in price, its a great phone and am finding out many good features with my first BlackBerry phone, why all the negative reviews and opinions?, it has best browser very fast and flash support, the on screen keyboard is brilliant it almost reads my thoughts the word is there, I can now type very quickly without mistakes, ( I am useless at typing normally ) it handles E mails/texts I have ten accounts, easy setup regardless of type, never miss a E mail/text now, and it looks and feels the right size, only slight down side is battery life not the best, needs a BlackBerry bigger battery and deeper back cover kit, strange that Q10 has larger battery, so I am very impressed with Z10, looking at A10 coming soon the question is as the price and second hand price of Z10/Q10 is now after several months falling through the floor, I can buy a new Z 10 for price of Q5 just released, and Q10 not far behind, it seems best to wait at least six months or more and save a large amount, this is not just BlackBerry cutting the prices so early, this could backfire on manufacturers as customers wait and save serious money, why buy over priced phones today just wait, this would make them think on pricing too high at launch day. Update 27 July, Q10 price down by $300 from launch day might be time to buy one now while still available.

    I fully understand what you are saying, but for me it's not a choice. I'm a BlackBerryaholic and all things BlackBerry is my dope. The day it becomes available for my carrier, I'm going to be buying a big bag of A10.

    For me, waiting 6 months for a price drop is silly. This market moves so fast, that a new device will be released in 6 months that you will want to wait for a price drop...the cycle never ends.

    If the device suits your needs and you are financially capable of purchasing it, do it.

    If you are willing to wait another few months there is another device coming out, so the Z10 will price drop pretty dramatically.

    HI Harmeling68, good to hear from a fellow addict, mines collecting Nokia Symbian phones, (Z10 is my main daily phone ) yes the desire to add another device, do you keep and use your Blackberries? And the cost of the hobby i try not think about it, perhaps BlackBerry might learn and release the A10 in US first, its your turn as Z10 came to UK first, anyway hope you get A10 soon and enjoy, look forward to your post on A10.
