BlackBerry Z3 to be launched in India next week
Just like in Indonesia, the BlackBerry Z3 will probably cost less than $200 when it hits shelves in India.
The Z3 is BlackBerry’s latest handset to run BlackBerry OS 10. Its features include a 5-inch display with 540 x 960 pixels, 5MP rear camera, 1.1MP front-facing camera, 1.5GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable internal memory. The smartphone is powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, and comes with a 2,500 mAh battery that can provide a talk time of up to 15.5 hours.
In addition to being released in India, the Z3 may also reach Malaysia in the near future.

BlackBerry is doing the right thing by releasing this handset strategically, hitting the markets where their name still carries weight. Here's to hoping the Z3 has a strong launch here as well.

True. It is selling very well here in Indonesia.

I see three people in my office using it, one of them said that it is very hard to find Z3 anywhere (seller around Jakarta) as they are all ran out of the stock.

Wish them all the best.
Hopefully steadily they will regain lost ground.

blackberry releasing the phone one market at a time because they can argue that it 'just' released in 1 market at their financial report, and say 'it will be' released in more market. its a strategy to trick investor into thinking that bb will be doing better.
it's also to make sure that the z3 sales number didn't go down. when the number going south, they just introduce to more market, so the sales will increase again. whenever a phone company release a phone in 1 country at one time, it means there is something wrong with the phone.

I feel bad for you Sir... I Hope Mr. Chen wont fire you from sales exec. position for bad marketing and wasting time on tech sites blaming your own company. :)

BlackBerry releasing this phone one market at a time where they are doing well is called SMART BUSINESS. You would do well to recognize that. It doesn't mean anything is wrong with the phone. You will say anything negative against BlackBerry, lies and all. You would make a poor business owner.

Smh,In indonesia this phone sells really well because it has no competitors.If BB want to sell the phone in india,they have to struggle with competitors such as the moto e

even smartfren android sell MORE than bb in indonesia. last time I see on news paper samsung sold 1 million + android, smartfren 300,000 android, and bb only manage to sell 120,000 bb... in 1 quarter...

The moto g was already sold anyway here,I suggest the Z3's sale will keep declining.I used a smartfren phone,waiting for the 16 gb moto g

the real question is if bb can manage to sell z3 after 1 months. I see lots of Q10 & Z10 collecting dust, and phone reseller crying over it.

No one believes what you are saying. Even your fellow countrymen say the opposite of what you're saying.

Please stop already. We get it, you do not like Blackberry. Please stop commenting on Blackberry articles.

Show proof with links that Z3 sales are declining Indonesia. If you cannot, then all you are saying is BS.

So? Who's making a comparison? BlackBerry is not in the consumer market to compete against Android. They are in the consumer market to sell to their CUSTOMERS. If you bothered to pay attention when John Chen speaks during interviews, you would already know this. Again, he's doing SMART BUSINESS.

Blackberry as a viable brand is long gone.
21. meanestgenius (Posts: 2209; Member since: 28 May 2014)
Incorrect, as usual. BlackBerry may not be making to many waves in many places around the world in the CONSUMER MARKET, but in the ENTERPRISE MARKET, BlackBerry is THE VIABLE BRAND around the WORLD.
