Default Re: Blackberry Phones and Services in India

Could you guys help.

I want to sell my less than 7 month old Bold 9900, black colour. I asked around in Gurgaon and a dealer in MGF mall said 5000. The device was in pristine condition, not a scratch or blemish as I always buy screen guards and cases for my devices. I paid 32K for this when I bought it, so what should be the realistic price I should expect because I am sure the dealer was taking me for a ride.

Also have a Bold 9780 white, which was never used, got it for my mom, who gave up after a week and shifted to Iphone, what should I expect for this?

Thanks

Hes taking you for a ride. You should get appx 15k as you have almost 1 year warranty left. Put it on olx.in or quickr and it will sell for better price over there.

Was offered 12k for my 1.5 year old Bold 9900, not in pristine condition, few scratches here and there. So you should definitely get more.

As for the Bold 3, expect around 10-12 if you are lucky.

Can't wait for the Q10.

Your Bold 9900 should go for abut 12-14k, and the 9780 for about 8-9k.

Thanks JK. I was expecting around the same price. I cant wait to feel it in hands personally and see if all the hype is worth it.

Eq24, If i had your BB9900, I wouldnt let it go for anything less than 18K and I would have easily sold it at that price in Hyd. But, Delhi is bad in this aspect so realistically expect 12-14k

I sold my BB9800 for 12K after 14 months of use and had bought it for 24K....Grey

Currently use a BB9810 for last 10 months and is my 6th blackberry in 5 years. And, Iam already itching to get the Z10

NOTE: For selling my BB phones, I use the thumb rule of 50% less for the price paid in 12 months timeframe

The Z10's official launch is on the 25th at Grand Hyatt, Mumbai. Can't wait to get there

Pricing should be around 40k give or take a few thousands [more likely give].

And yes available at Penta for a week or so but without Indian warranty which makes it scary considering getting an out of warranty unit serviced is quite risky.

Sorry to go bit off topic here, but I found this guy in Bangalore trying to sell a BB Z10 for 50k. Supposed to have UAE warranty. Link below,

When i enquired, a few days back, only imports were available. He quoted around 38 for that. I was informed that official ones would only be a few k more, but would take some more time to arrive.

I though they released the price after the soft launch in Bangalore. Good news from internal sources is that price is under 40k (95%) and Asia launch is at Mumbai on Monday.

The sad news is Asia version will have TI OMAP Chipset clocked at 1.5 GHz Dual Core with 2GB RAM and not the Snapdragon Krait. TI OMAP is an obsolete chipset with 45nm manufacturing and honestly in benchmarks cannot compete with Snapdragon.

Hopefully the OS is optimized to work smoothly on the chipset.

There is a pre booking offer from eZone http://www.ezoneonline.in/Products/E...d-2504029.aspx
The page says official price after getting announced, you'll get the difference refunded.
