What a rip off, as expected from BB...

  • Akbar Ali

The RIM is using marketing strategy to sell Q5 of selling by $400 at starting as the Q3 as the price will be cut off by Q4(fourth quater)

400. is is still high blackberry that is a stripped down version of a Q10 watch Huawei put out a 250 or 300 version running android 4 with a 5 mega pixel camera or Nokia put out a windows phone .

In same price S3 is available ..... BB is joking ..... max 900 dhs for thz.....

  • Shobi

400$ for this?? LOL.. and 800$ for Q10?? LOL LOL LOL.. I think BlackBerry wants to sell their phones only to few millionaire's who infact would prefer iPhone than this. BlackBerry's both phones are good but pricing is over optimistic , will take them to their doom.

Z10 @ 42.5K, Q10 @ 45K.
What about Q5! 25K! BBRY sucks.

$408 for this crap! Approximately (including conversion rate & taxes) around INR 25K ? I can pay maximum 10K-12K for this one. Not anything more.

Seriosuly if you want to know how to commit suicide check with blackberry - they have already lost market and now when they try to gain market again they release handsets priced at a primium...

Q10 is more expensive than an iPhone 5 in India and Z10 is more expensive than Samsung galaxy s4, HTC one and Xperia Z...

Who in their right mind would spend more money than an iPhone 5's cost to buy a phone with sub par everything...

Who in their right mind would want a bb z10 when they can get a Galaxy s4 for a lot less cheaper...

In many ways Blackberry has to realize its not 2008 anymore - its the same crappy attitude that sent nokia to its doom and not they are following the suit...
