  • BlackBerry (BBRY) slides another 6.2% premarket, with Goldman cutting to Hold amid the soft AT&T launch. Citigroup reiterates its $6 price target, saying internal checks show sales of the Z10 have dramatically slowed and carriers have shifted promotions to other products. "Shockingly low support by AT&T with extremely limited signage ... most AT&T employees (have) not even been trained on the device." [View news story]
    AT&T is painting itself in a corner...

    Screwing WP (Nokia) and now BB manufacturers with these tactics is not going to help AT&T in the long run. Also, Samsung (Android) has little interest in dealing with them, leaving AT&T little option than to be locked into Apple iPhone for a long while...not good prospects for their future!!!

    Not sure why AT&T was first to release the Z10 in the US?? They have always been a huge Apple booster (iPhone exclusivity until 2011, 85% of all smartphones sold in Q412 were iPhone, major contractual obligations to sell iPhone). Not surprising that their Z10 launch was lack-lustre!!

    Wait until Verizon and T-mobile launches, much bigger marketing push for Z10/Q10. Combined they will sell 90% of all BB10 devices in US and take share from AT&T!!
