Mobilicity has just announced that they start to carry Passport, Classic and even Z30. Among all Canadian carriers, Fido ONLY YOU do not carry any BlackBerry 10 smartphones.

I understand that Fido has strategic reasons, only releasing information about new handsets at the very last minute. However, remember that to be competitive, the last minute is always too late to respond to the market. Right now, big 3 - Rogers, Telus and Bell, Wind Mobile are getting BlackBerry Leap for price- sensitive customers. I am going to add a line for my son (12-year-old boy) who needs a smartphone of better price tag. Of course, I will not add a line at Fido because Fido doesn't even add any new BlackBerrys (including BlackBerry Leap) in the product lineup. Even myself will not stay with Fido pretty soon because there is no any BlackBerry to upgrade from my awesome Z10.
