Good News, Bad News for Research In Motion Ltd (BBRY)

Turns out, if you’re willing and able to shell out $999, you can get your Z10 in a couple of business days, beginning now. A relatively new carrier in the wireless game, Solavei , will sell you a BlackBerry Z10 without a long-term contract through GSM Nation.

After announcing delays of its Q10, and watching Home Depot opt for iPhones, BlackBerry shareholders could use a little good news. A recent upgrade from Wells Fargo will help, as will making BlackBerry’s Z10 available early in the U.S., even without a subsidy. A non-subsidized Z10 won’t sell millions of units, but BlackBerry can use all the good news it can muster.

We haven’t seen the last of big stock price movements with BlackBerry, not by a long shot. Every bit of news — good, bad, or indifferent — will elicit wild swings in valuation. That’s what happens when you put it all on the line, as BlackBerry’s done with BB10. In the long run, I still like BlackBerry’s chances; but if the recent news has taught us anything, it’s that you better get ready for a wild ride.
