BlackBerry Q5 will be announced in India soon. But it is not a budget phone for Indian masses.
Considering BlackBerry Q5’s pricing in the UAE at AED 1,499 ($408), the new smartphone will cost around Rs 24,000 in India.
BlackBerry Q5, a Qwerty-touch & type phone, will be available in the UAE from today, one month of its planned schedule.
BlackBerry may be considering this as a budget phone comparing with BlackBerry Q10 that is priced around Rs 44,000.
BlackBerry Q5 is the slight variant of BlackBerry Q10.
BlackBerry Q10 pricing strategy has created criticism from phone writers. Following this, BlackBerry offered Rs 5,000 gift voucher when users buy using American Express credit card.
