Over in India, where we know that BlackBerry sales are huge, it seems that the the RIM Premium Stores in Delhi, Gurgaon and Mumbai are now offering an added incentive to get consumers to purchase a new BlackBerry smartphone. Customers will be given, free of charge, a 4GB microSD card with two movies pre-loaded. There are a choice of films for the good people of India to choose from including:

  • Bodyguard
  • 3 idiots
  • Rowdy Rathore
  • Paan Singh Tomar
  • Remember The Titans
  • The Rock
  • Prince of Persia
  • Pirates of the Caribbean 4
  • Gone in 60 Seconds

The word on the street is that this offer will end on January 31st - which is just when BlackBerry 10 is announced. Could this be a quick marketing ploy by the Indian RIM stores to shift some BlackBerry 7 devices before the new platform goes live?

Either way - not a bad idea - perfect for Christmas.
