Bold 9790 too expensive .... If i'm not wrong its been quoted as an entry level Bold which at 27,490 is way too expensive for an entry level Bold...

and the Curve 9360 White started coming in this week!

good times for Blackberry in India but wish they would get their marketing right.

and well the Bold 9900 is at Rs.33,000 so the Bold 9790 at Rs.27,000 is a fair deal :)

Rs. 27,500 (almost US$ 550) for an entry level Bold, is a FAIR PRICE!! Who do you work for? The Sultan of Brunei?

Your benchmark - the 9900 - too is overpriced @ Rs.33,000 (US$650). It doesn't even have an AutoFocus camera. The iPhone 4 (16GB) sells in India @ that price!
RIM needs to understand that apart from the first 3 and the last 2 alphabets being the same, Indonesia and India are two different stories.

Deathwalkr....any news on the wine/merlot 9360?

I think 24,000 rs ( 1 USD = Approx. Rs 51 these days) would have been a fair price for the 9790.

I totally agree with you. Rs.24k (US$ 470) would have been a fair price. And, if I know anything about the Indian Market, The 9790 price would be hovering around this level in a few weeks..

Folks, I think we've surpassed the number of BB7 devices promised for 2011 by a long shot. RIM had suggested seven devices.

9900, 9930, 9860, 9850, 9810, 9350, 9360, 9370, 9790.

I count nine (9) new rockin' BB7 devices!

I believe the 9900/30 are considered one, the 9860/50 another. If so, there are seven!

I still think they should drop the Curve line. How can you sell a 9370 for $50 when the 9860 is being discounted to $79?

The masses in Singapore and India are proving the point: we just want a smartphone that works well. They're buying BlackBerrys for a reason, not because RIM is brainwashing them. The growth in the far east especially has been huge!

In North America, we're too concerned with who has the better ecosystem, so we buy Android and iPhone. These ecosystems aren't necessarily better, they're just bigger, and bigger definitely isn't better. Bigger is just bigger.
