0. phoneArena 02 Jul 2013, 06:19 posted on

BlackBerry isn't doing particularly well right now. Even though its newest Z10 and Q10 smartphones are on sale already, the company is still having troubles getting back the market share it lost over the past several years.

I never used the OS but its dead at least in India.
This is too little too late. They release both Z10 and Q10 at the same price as iphone 5 in India.

Even the galaxy S4, HTC ONE cost less. Last year(Q1) BB is top 3 OEM in India. This year its not even in top 10.

Even after Rs 11,000 trade in discount Z10 costs higher than galaxy S3, nexus 4, Lumia 920, HTC One X.

How can you expect it to sell?

They figured if priced to low it would be considered a cheap phone. I say take a hit on the z and q kill the market let ppl see what u have... Pricing it such high you don't stand a chance I give til 2015 before Bb closes or gets bought out

After the trade in the price is still more than the S3... and the Note II trade in promo is also running which also makes the device cheaper than the z10 during the promo...

I know that we are talking about last years flagships from Sammy here.. but still.. its a better deal in my opinion than the Z10.. They should start pricing the products competitively...
