BlackBerry already do pretty well for themselves in the Indian market, but today sees them reduce the price of the BlackBerry Q5 to Rs.19,990, which is always nice to hear. Although the new price of the lower end BlackBerry 10 handset is still higher than with legacy devices, I presume that BlackBerry India are hoping to make it more attractive for both legacy users who are soon to upgrade, as well as new users to the platform.

Press Release

Keeping up with the festive spirit, BlackBerry today announced a New Year Bonanza offer for its popular BlackBerry Q5 smartphone. Under this offering, customers can now purchase BlackBerry Q5 smartphone at just Rs. 19,990.  The BlackBerry Q5 is available in three colors, red, white and black.

The attractive offering on BlackBerry Q5 is in line with BlackBerry’s commitment towards the Indian market and will help the brand to reach out to more potential customers.

Sameer Bhatia, Director – Distribution for BlackBerry India said, “The New Year Bonanza aims at providing a powerful mobile device, with cutting edge BlackBerry 10 OS at an affordable price point to the consumers.”
