German shoppers for a BlackBerry Z30 might want to look at T-Mobile, as the flagship BlackBerry 10 smartphone has been the recipient of a pretty substantial price cut. The price off-contract of the Z30 in Germany varies from €544,99 from Orange to €500 straight from ShopBlackBerry, but T-Mobile is now undercutting them all at a stunning €389,94. That's for a 16GB BlackBerry Z30, and if you'd like to get it on an installment plan it'll cost you a whopping €1 up front.

As a refresher, the Z30 is the largest BlackBerry 10 smartphone, sporting a 5-inch 1280x720 screen powered by a dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with 2GB of RAM. Camera-wise you'll find an 8-megapixel shooter on the back with a 2MP camera up front. It's easily proven to be a favorite among BlackBerry users, combining a speedy chipset with the productivity prowess of BlackBerry 10 and a large high-resolution display. You can read about it all in our review of the BlackBerry Z30

Well, let's hope this will help with getting the Z30 into more people's hands! I'm certainly enjoying mine.

T-Mobile DE price includes 19% VAT though, Verizon price is pre-taxes.

Nice to hear that! Sell as many BB10 as possible!! People need to experience the new OS

nt300

Fully Agree. Keep selling BB10 devices as much as possible. People will eventually catch on to how far superior BB10 is compared to the competition.

The Z30 is the best mobile device in the industry based on user reviews. Keep pushing them out and keep stocking them.

Yeah.... I'm mean eventually it has to catch on right?

Nobody will buy the Z30! I am living in Frankfurt and no single T-Mobile (Telekom) store has the Z30 in stock...
I highly doubt that anyone will buy a phone without having seen it before no matter what the price tag is

So where are they!?

They are probably doing what Rogers is doing here in Canada and selling them online which is great but people want to play with a phone in stores before they buy them

That alone is the reason I went to bell for a Z30

I really do see many around in Frankfurt, mainly 9900, 9981, Q10 and Z10.
No doubt fans and longtime users will buy unseen, as I did with my Z10 because it just wasn't available in any stores yet back then.

Whether you see BlackBerry Smartphones frequently or not heavily depends on where you are. Many of my colleagues also use BlackBerry as first choice but the majority don't. It is not enough to rely on the hardcore fans. In order to turn the ship around they have to win the mass market. But without displays in stores they will have a hard time!

Still too high. Sorry, but it is.

neoberry99

@ Intrestor. You're right....the stores need to stock the phone. At minimum a working demo and a staff that's trained on the OS.

I have a Z30 - best phone I've ever used. I love the screen, but a 'high resolution display'? Nah, that's one thing it doesn't have.

It doesn't effect my day-to-day usage at all, and undoubtedly makes for an even longer battery life, but it's PPI is low end compared to the industry standard expected nowadays.

canuckbear

I really don't notice. This phone kicks ass everywhere where it counts

KD149 here in Kuwait; that's about €383. I bought one last week and although my Z10 may still see some use, I'm enjoying the Z30 more in almost every respect.

Paid full price for Playbook 64 and z10, never again.
Z30 < 350 can is my buy price...unless z50 arrives ;)

djdoubleD

Only a moron will shell-out >$500 for this quickly dated phone. Let's be honest here. Price point should be $350. I don't care how they achieve that (perhaps foxconn) but it has be close to $300 for people to 'try' a new OS

BlackBerry's MSRP for The Z30 is 500,- Euro. All the retailers get off course a two digit discount. T-Mobile is still making money with such an end-consumer price.

The build quality on a Galaxy S5 is the same cheap plastic as I had on my Galaxy S3.

The build quality on the Z30 is far superior in every aspect.

With thinking like yours - it is no wonder BlackBerrys don't sell very well - people will settle for cheap plastic phones with crappy speakers and screens that you can't type on.

No wonder they are already having a BOGO program for S5's at Sprint...

There are some very good reasons that the Z30 is the Best Rated / Most Recommended phone by owners on the planet...

Stop settling....grow a pair and show people that you are smart enough to own a Z30.

The design of the rear cover is poor, though. I mean the flap the hides the sd slot and the sim card slot. There is a piece of grey plastic that sticks out and has had poor fit and finish issues. This thoughtless design quirk has ruined the Z30 for me. It marrs an otherwise beautiful design.

freddysrevng3

Nit pick much? I have had the Z30 for 4 months and have no idea what you are complaining about or how it affects normal everyday use...

That is for 16GB version - is there other version on market, with more memory, 32GB, 64GB???

Mini SD card up to 64...

FishhPoohh

16gb is the highest they go which is the reason I'm selling my Z30. I maxed out my storage with apps and I still need more memory.

FishhPoohh

aw.... I have a fan :D Why the diss? I never said the Z30 was a bad phone. It's an awesome all around phone. I just need more memory is all. If the release the Z50 with 32gb of internal memory then I'll buy it. Until then I'll settle with this 32gb Note 2

Why don't you use a SD card to expand....

Lol! Agreed. 32 GB should be industry standard now.

That goes for BlackBerry and all the other smartphone makers. Especially for high end phones!

Or you can read about it in my Z30 short film.

I used my almighty Z30 to create this CrackBerry madness!

pdkd

I have the z30 and I much preferred my z10, the z30 is to big and heavy, there is to much wasted space on the bottom bezel. I love the screen and speed but the actual device size is to big compared to other 5" screen devices

Posted via CB10

MrJohnyBoy

Agreed...I played with both and in the end I got the Z10 more comfortable in the hands, easier to type and I can operate the phone with one hand using the thumb where I had to use two hands for the Z30

Then you have yourself a deal.

Wish we had this deal in Austria!

PiotrJot

But I guess you can profit from this deal anyway. The version is the same for the EU. All you need is an address of someone in Germany where the phone would be shipped, and then figure out how to pick it up.
I an just considering one myself (I live in Poland). But I guess I'll pass: spent too much on new tv, BD player and some movies...

Wenn du magst, kann ich dir eins bestellen.

T-mobile.de Price before was 480€ of contract.

Do Not forget all German prices includes a VAT of 19%
Price without VAT would be 327,68€ / 452,98 US$

Meanwhile the Curve 9360 is selling for €325 in the Netherlands. Must be crazy to buy that lol

Will this price be permanent or will it go up at one point? I mean, is this just a short term deal?

I would have gotten the Z30 on Verizon, but settled for the Q10, which I'm totally loving and also loving that keyboard again!! The Z30 is $199.99 on a two year contract. The Q10, along with the Z10 are both free with a two year contract. All awesome phones!!

I got mine in France in February for 399 Euros. German reviews on the Z30 were very good, so hopefully there is a market at this price point.

€500 used to be DM1000, one thousand Deutsche Mark.

That was a lot of money once. Sadly the Euro and imported inflation has destroyed a lot of value and quality of life through price stability in Germany, which historically was the No.1 goal of the Bundesbank.

I know enough German to try and order it from their website, unfortunately it flagged me as not having a German telephone number and so I couldn't complete the order.
