BlackBerry cuts prices of QWERTY handsets

Tags: Gadgets
Canadian handset maker Blackberry today slashed prices of its QWERTY devices -- 9320, 9720 and Q5 -- by as much as Rs 6,000 to sell them for Rs 9,900 onwards.

The price of 9320 has been cut by 10% from Rs 11,000 to Rs 9,900, while 9720 will be available for Rs 11,990 (from Rs 15,990 earlier).

BlackBerry 9320 is the first 3G enabled device from the smartphone maker's portfolio in the sub-Rs 10,000 range.

The Q5 will now be available for Rs 13,990, cheaper by almost 30% from the earlier price of Rs 19,990.

Commenting on the price cut, Sameer Bhatia, Director (Distribution) at BlackBerry India said, "The classic BlackBerry keyboard has huge fan base who swear by the distinct typing experience that BlackBerry offers."

These compelling price-points will enable QWERTY fans to experience the latest technology and ease of use in one device, he added.

The offer will run across all BlackBerry retail networks.

The company had earlier slashed prices of its devices like Z30 and Z10 under special offers, which saw phenomenal response, often resulting in stocks running out.
