Will a Rs 40,000 price tag hamper the BlackBerry Z10’s chances?
| by Nikhil Subramaniam |
The big question after BlackBerry’s launch of its two new devices, the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10, is “What's the price?!”.
The BlackBerry Z10 is a full touchscreen phone running on BB10
In Britain, the BlackBerry Z10 is available from today on monthly contracts and prepaid plans from EE, O2, Vodafone, Phones 4u, BT, 3UK and the Carphone Warehouse. The phone will be available for free at Carphone Warehouse from £36 per month (approx Rs 3,000) on various networks. On EE, UK’s only 4G network provider, the Z10 will cost you £50 (Rs 4,250) up front with a £41 (Rs 3,450) monthly two-year contract. O2 prices haven’t been confirmed yet, while on Vodafone, you can purchase the Z10 with an upfront cost of £29 (Approx Rs 2,500) along with a £42 monthly Red Data plan on contract or for free with a £47 (Rs 4,000) monthly plan.
If the likes of Airtel or Vodafone employ this pricing model in the case of the new BlackBerry phone, then a subsidised Z10 at around Rs 10,000 with a monthly plan for data and talk-and-text would be very lucrative indeed. More importantly, it would make the handset more accessible to the general public.
