Four major US carriers cut prices of BlackBerry Z10. $49 is the new contract price of Z10 at Best Buy and Amazon while AT&T and Verizon are offering the smartphone for $99 under two-year contract.
Good Shot. If you are looking to buy the BlackBerry Z10 device, it is the right time to do so. The smartphone is really cheap now as you can purchase it for just a mere of $49. Its price goes down by as much as 75% on all major US retailers. It looks like the sale of this device is really slow as all carriers have discounted the smartphone just after 4 months of its launch.
Best Buy and Amazon are now offering the Z10 for only $49 under a new contract. AT&T and Verizon Wireless also cut the price to half. Instead of $199, now you can purchase BlackBerry Z10 for just $99 with 2 years contract. But without contract, its price is really high. You have to pay $700 to grab the device. $49 and $99 price tags are really low to experience the all new BlackBerry Z10 smartphone.
A BlackBerry representative told The Wall Street Journal that company is launching new models now and it “is the right time to adjust the price” of the Z10. He also states in his email that “It’s part of life cycle management to tier the pricing for current devices to make room for the next ones. This is just one element of our marketing strategy that will ensure we remain aggressive in a very competitive market landscape.”
BlackBerry must be hoping now to see an increased sales of the Z10. The Canadian smartphone maker has already lost $84 million in last quarter. So all hopes are now for saling more and more BlackBerry 10 devices to gain profit.
