Is it a bad time to buy a BlackBerry?

I like the BlackBerry Q10 (for the keyboard mostly) but is it a bad idea to get one now in case BlackBerry gets sold?

Wouldn't bother me.
Also: If it is the keyboard you fancy, buy a Bold 9900! The keyboard is better, batterylife is better, and BB OS7 is mature and fast. Screen is lower resolution but at least it isn't square! No bugs, so support from BB is irrelevant. And better 3rd party apps from what I experienced with the z10/Q10.
Disadvantage: camera is worse. And you do need a Blackberry add-on with most networks, while BB10 has made that irrelevant.

Lastly: The 9900 feels classy. Very classy.

Personally, I'd stay well away. If I had to have a BB, like Jan said, it'd be a Bold 9900. That thing is built like a bloody tank.

Granted, considering how HP screwed webOS device owners, with a few on the longterm buying BB might be risky. But I'd say they are good for a couple of years.
