  1. No doubt, It’s doomed to go extinct, Blackberry’s Management, not sure what they are made of, they are letting their company to ruin, they can’t understand what the consumer wants.

  2. specification are like RN4, but price is 3 times more than RN4, 20K is the correct price..

  3. And The Joke of the Year Award goes to BB.??
    Even single piece will not sale..

    Kuchh to market research kar lete BB, launch karne se pehle.
    Even rs.15000 is more than enough for this phone.

  4. Inka Dimaag kharab hai kya. I had been proud user of Z10 but this new one is simply too much overpriced.
    They are not selling good in US and Eu also due to this absurd pricing and still doing same in other markets also.

  5. Guys I think it has black colour variant which have 64gb internal and 4gb ram, hope the same configuration with silver colour..and will buy if price under 25 to 28k.

  6. I love Blackberry but this is too costly… not sure it Jio will work on it.. I was it was priced under 18k.

  7. IDK for what reason one should buy this if BB has also adopted Android in their phones at such a high price

  8. Gogi,

    there is a typo , Screen is mentioned as 45 inches, it should be 4.5 inches..

  9. Blackberry is trying to bury itself. Who will buy this phone with SD625 for 40k? 20k to 25k should have been the price because of the brand, if not, it’s not even worth 15k.

  10. Very good Joke..

    I am sure no one will buy this phone even at 15k also….

    Qwerty keypad is history now and this ugly phone will be a Big Flop.

    RIP BlackBerry.

      1. It’s a touch screen phone…. Even keyboard is touch sensitive…. You can scroll through, swipe pages, edit text using gestures over keyboard… It supports key mapping…. I.e, longer holding g for gmail, f for facebook, etc.

        I am loving the concept… But waiting for the same fate as of Z10 which is now available at just Rs 7000…

        I will be replacing my RN3 once it comes under rs 18 k… Right now it’s way too costly but its not ordinary qwerty android… It can be praised if comes around 20k..
