This SA cellphone store has a price for the new Blackberry Z10 – R8999 [pic]
Posted by on Jan 24th, 2013

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?

Blackberry are aiming at the wrong market in SA. The high-end market is already gone to IOS, Android and in some business cases Windows. Overpriced.

High End BB’s has always been pricey, but I do not see why anyone would pay this for a BB when you can get an S3 or i5 for roughly the same price.. Also, with rumours that BIS will only cover BBM and emails, why would anyone still opt for an RIM product. Uncapped BIS was the best selling feature.

Crash and burn. Take pictures while you fall out of the sky BB. Maybe you can sell that for money or rocks or something.
