  1. Way too expensive.. Do they think people pluck money from trees? Price at per with apple but fan base a far cry from apple’s

  2. Well. Thinking of the security and features it boast of. I think its a good price for its targeted market

  3. That’s Blackberry for you,always doing an HTC and then turns round and complain nobody buys their devices..

  4. Lol. BlackBerry have been doing this from time. Even some of their os7 phones are not selling cheap

  5. if you consider the pricing of other security focused Android devices like the Turing Phone and the BlackPhone, it’s really not so expensive
