Re: Nice to see some objectivity
As regards "strong carrier support for BlackBerry", I don't know if I'm looking at a different set of carriers, but I still see the Blackberry Curves etc being pushed on web sites. Considering it's allegedly launched today in the UK I'd say someone's missing a trick here..
I think you're right Flywheel. UK carriers are very slowly pushing the phone:
- Vodafone has it on their frontpage to order
- EE is still not showing it anywhere on the frontpage but are now selling it (weirdly, T-Mobile and Orange who aren't the 4G brand under the same umbrella are pushing it more)
- Three are showing nothing
- O2 are battling for business by plastering it on their front page
Maybe Blackberry haven't been strict enough from removing their old stock and carriers still wish to sell them until all gone. As you say, that could be a big mistake.
