Right…before you go quoting my ass, let me just say this is unconfirmed! I’ve been doing some detective work and this morning i got one of the major South African mobile networks to give me a contract price for the much anticipated, soon to be launched Blackberry Z10. That didn’t help much since cell phone contracts aren’t easy to compare between different networks. So i did some more digging and stumbled upon the only SA store to list a device price for the Blackberry London (L-series). Now i have no idea whether it’s just a marketing tactic or a leaked price, but either way they’ve put it out there at R8999.00
Can’t say i know much about CaCELL, but do you think they would put it out there for some free exposure or did they just release a price early by mistake? And they did go to the effort of saying it will be in stock on Thrusday 31 January which is a day after the launch. You wouldn’t exactly just suck your thumb and make up a number would you..coz if the eventual retail price is lower then you will look like a chop and outpriced yourself no?
Given the fact that the BB Z10 is a 16GB device the price seems comparitive to the offers for the iPhone 5 around the country.
What say you? Legit or marketing ploy?
