Blackberry Z10 Price Discounted by Rs 13500, Clearing The Road For Z30 Phablet in India

Blackberry Currently Going Though Bad Times, As we Recently Heard of Canadian Company Trying To Buy Blackberry For Over 30,000 Crore. Recently Blackberry Has Cut Down The Prices Of Z10 when When BlackBerry announced the pricing for its flagship, the Z10 in India back in February, the staggering pricing received a lot of criticism. However, BlackBerry seems to have finally sweetened the deal, by bringing the Z10's price tag down to Rs. ..........
  Sunil Lalvani, Managing Director India for BlackBerry, said: "We continue to leverage festive season with relevant product and services promotions. BlackBerry 10 platform offers a new and unique mobile communication experience and at Rs. 29,990 the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone is uniquely positioned to change the way in which our customers view mobile technology.,"

The Z10 is now available for Rs 30,000 at most retailers with BlackBerry dropping the price by Rs 13,500 bringing it Down From Rs 43,500. Last week BlackBerry had announced it would write off between $930 million to $960 million in unsold inventory, mostly related to the Z10. It also said it would reposition the Z10 as an entry-level BB10 smartphone. The Q5 still remains the most affordable BB10 smartphone, available for approximately Rs 24,000.

The BlackBerry Z10 is the first phone-based on the BlackBerry 10 platform. The device is powered by a dual-core processor that is clocked at 1.5GHz along with 2GB of RAM. The inbuilt storage available on the smartphone is 16GB. It has an 8-megapixel rear camera that can capture 1080p videos and 2-megapixel camera in the front. The Z10 comes with an 1,850mAh battery, which as per the company claims gives 10 hours of talktime and 312 hours of standby time.

Meanwhile, the company launched the BlackBerry Z30 which is now the biggest smartphone in BlackBerry's portfolio and can be called the first phablet from the Canadian manufacturer. In terms of display it comes with a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with 720x1280 pixels resolution, translating to a pixel density of 294ppi. It is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with Adreno 320. The new phablet runs BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.2, which includes refinements and new features when compared to the BlackBerry Z10.

 It remains to be seen whether the price cut has the desired effect, considering BlackBerry has agreed to a letter of intent from Fairfax Financial for a $4.7 billion buyout that would take the company private. BlackBerry also intends to exit from the consumer market and hopes to focus on the enterprise and prosumer segment. With BlackBerry acknowledging that most of the phones sold in the previous quarter were running BB OS 7 and not BB10, we doubt this would be the last price cut.
