Google "Rogers BlackBerry Z10 dips to $99.99"
The price reduction is listed with several other phone price reductions but in the other cases the phones have been on the market several months not just 3 weeks. This is not a positive indicator. I'm just passing along information but go ahead bring on the hate.
If true not necessarily bad...especially only on 3 year contracts....Rogers may be trying to lock in new customers with deal on the "hot phone'...16.33/yr is no deal buster.
from the rogers website:
iphone 5 reviews 16/ average score 3
S3 reviews 39/ avg score 3.5
note 2 reviews 46/ avg score 3.5
lumina 920 reviews 115/ avg score 4.5
no way blackberry z10 could compete with lumia numbers right?
BlackBerry Z10 reviews 196/ avg score 4.5
also... contract pricing is variable depending on ....you guessed it the payments! duh. for example. "We posted earlier on this week that WIND Mobile would be offering the BlackBerry Z10 very shortly. That time is now - the beautiful Z10 is now in stock with WIND and can be yours from $299 on a $40 a month plan. They are also offering two alternative plans - $20 and $30 per month but the price of the device rises to $499 and $399. " takeaway....contract price of phone (expecially without plan services and price) is not so telling.
no hate your info is good. Not a negative though because it's part of a cut across all phones. If they had cut others and not BB it would have put BB at a contract pricing disadvantage. They cut the price by 16.67/ yr. in the contract. Idk if it affects BB's margin, but I can promise you it won't hurt sales.
Do you realize that you sound like an idiot? When a company has a high demand product they lower the price to further increase the demand. This new is very bullish since it is occurring just 3 weeks after launch. This is Economics 101 dip #$%$.
