Looks like BlackBerry wants to be part of the sub-Rs.10000($220) segment in India as the price of the most affordable BlackBerry – the Curve 8520 has dropped to Rs.9990. The device was earlier available for Rs.11-12,000. The handset also comes with a 18 month warranty while most brands offer only 12 months.
If you ever wanted to own a BB and turned down the idea due to the huge upfront investment, now is your time to try again. Just a friendly reminder that you still have to pay for your Blackberry Plan if you wish to use push email on this device. While the advert mentions the MRP of Rs.9990 you can get this handset for a lesser price at some retailers.
