The end of the working week is here for most of us and what a good way to end things for the people of the Philippines. BlackBerry have announced the Z3 will be launching there at authorized retailers at the price of P 10,990.

With the latest low cost BlackBerry 10 device selling out pretty much straight away in the other countries it's already become available in, it'll be interesting to see of the good folk of the Philippines go the same way. Historically the country has been a productive market for BlackBerry and with the Z3 hitting the shores I expect this to continue.

Cameron Vernest, Managing Director for Singapore and the Philippines at BlackBerry said, "The Philippines is a key market for BlackBerry Z3 and we are excited to be working with our partners to bring this new BlackBerry to our loyal Filipino customers. This device gives users more ways to connect, share and communicate, providing the best tool for secure, reliable communications and collaboration with friends, family and co-workers. Priced affordably, the BlackBerry Z3 will extend the full capabilities of the BlackBerry 10 Operating System version 10.2.1 experience for a new generation of customers in the Philippines."
