AT&T (T) will begin selling the BlackBerry Z10 (BBRY) on March 15, N4BB reports. The timing of Verizon Wireless' Z10 launch is said to be "still up in the air, but could be as late as April with a white Z10 exclusive." AT&T's supposed launch date meshes with past comments from Thorsten Heins.

    Great news. It is about time. Let the music begins.
    With 9 days to go the stock climb is about to start. BBRY kicked off the beginning today with a 6.1% upward move.

    verizon has pooped in their hat. It is clear they are in the tank with goog. these guys are dangerous to our free enterprise system. They have armies of low information sheep who only humanist input is from the media owned media who has a "if you are not with me, you are against me"
    This high dollar customer is skipping to BB via ATT.
    If you notice VZ service is no longer bulletproff and workers don't know much about anything except samsung

    I think that the intial production capability works out better this way for Blackberry. Send your first shipment to ATT. Then the next shipment to Verizon. And then as the rest of the world catches the vision... Best Buy, Walmart and so on....

    Hm, what to buy? Only have $700. (BBRY), (CVRR), or (NCT).

     

    (CVRR) has an ex-dividend date for a very large dividend coming up.
    (NCT) will spin-off a unit at the end of March.

    Michael, if you're a loooonng term investor how about Zynga? CVRR and NCT are very tempting, too. As of now $700 will get you about 50 shares of BlackBerry.

     

    -Cheers!

    Thanks. Definitely looking at (CVRR) and (NCT). Maybe I'll buy (AFFY) or (NC), too. Just got federal and state refund today so the amount I can spend ballooned. (BBRY) still looks speculative, but like I have noted before, it has good valuation. After a month, I think the guessing game will end in (BBRY).

    That's good for you to sell the phone before your competition for a couple weeks you might even steal some new costumers
    Because the z10 is a hot phone and selling great. Happy customers happy retailers

    In the end it will be the results and the numbers of units sold that will drive the stock in the short term. At the same time, the shorts may get squeezed and give a further lift. Long term look could not be more positive.

    My question is WHY is Verizon Wireless only launching with the white Z10? I am 100% positive many will also want the black Z10.

     

    Call me a conspiracy theorist, but this sounds like a plot to prevent proper short term sales and growth for the Z10, for the sake of Q1 2013 numbers. The same can be said about Sprint which won't carry the Z10 at all, due to this supposed Apple iPhone 5 baggage deal, which now they are stuck with.

    Check out this negative article regarding AT&T and BlackBerry I found on Twitter last evening on Cnet. The author got pooped on so BAD- read the comments after his trash. Also, a few people on Twitter pooped on him there, too, like I did!! BlackBerry interest here in the US is starting to grow!!

     

    Anyways, here's the link:

    Now you make it sound like there is a mob for (BBRY) where any challenge is thrown rotten grapefruits on. That happened in the .com boom.

    If you want to get an idea of US demand for the BBRY Z10, just read this ipetition to "Bring the Z10 to Sprint". Thousands are very upset with this carrier and will leave, even after years of service, if they only carry the Q10, which may not be for months. There is tremendous pressure to carry both phones, and soon.

    Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile will benefit from this, as will we shareholders when the US demand is found to be well beyond anyone's expectations.
