Default New 7250

Please Login to Remove!

Yup, you read that correctly. I just bought a NEW 7250 on eBay for $10. I'm going old old old school for a week, just out of nostalgia. I sold my Q10 and Z10 in preparation for the Q20 release but I simply cannot be without a BlackBerry that works on my carrier (Verizon). I'd have gone even OLDER school if I could have found an old greenscale/grayscale model that works.

No, but I'm using an iPhone right now and resale value on the Q10 is still pretty decent. I got $260 for mine, and $195 for my Z10. And those were quick sales.

Seems they are going back to the trackpad. some sites are indicating September or October and others are saying mid 2015. Blackberry either way is too slow in the introductions. Not sure using the same builder ( Foxconn) as Apple is a good idea.
There have been a lot of questions around security on electronics made in China.
Foxconn employees make $.078 per hour or less so why would anyone do anything wrong?

I'd use a 7290 again in a heartbeat if it support BBM groups.

If they put a trackpad back maybe the thumb wheel is next.

I heard someone recently handed Chen a 650 and he said "Not bad!"
