Unlocked BlackBerry Q5 now available online from Best Buy
posted by Alan F. / Sep 12, 2013, 9:20 AM
The price of the phone is $499.99 and Best Buy will ship it in one to two business days. Just realize that the QWERTY on the BlackBerry Q5 is more basic than the one on the BlackBerry Q10. Otherwise, the screen remains the same 3.1 inch 720 x 720 box that you will find on the higher priced model.
Considering that the BlackBerry Q10 is $634 in the same unlocked state from Best Buy, you can keep some extra cash in your wallet by choosing the plastic BlackBerry Q5 instead.

I don't understand the pricing strategy for this phone. Amazon is selling the Z10 for $365 unlocked and the reviews of this phone (especially its keyboard) have been mixed at best. Who is going to buy this off contract for $499? For some reason Blackberry seems to think that people are willing to pay a price premium for a keyboard and smaller screen.
