Thats why no store and even amazon india is carrying it. It was supposed to be avcailable from Jan 30, but even today, 4 days later, no retailer has it. Ebay India is seeling imported PRiv for 50,366! I expect the company will lower the price this week. Who is running marketing for blackberry in india is truly disengaged from reality!
canned55, 29 Jan 2016i want whatever bb official is smoking.. they seems high as hell!Lol...funny sh*t
Star, 29 Jan 2016Seriously ? 923$ Why blackberry, Just why ?Blackberry knows that they can only sell their stuff to their existing fans. So instead of figuring out a good price that satisfy everyone, might as well milk their remaining fans.
rolphez, 29 Jan 2016Can I please anything to backup your statements?
Show me one company who has acquired as many... moreeveryone has out innovated BB.. they have brought no new tech to the mobile world.
You say buying other companies is 'innovating'.. lol

Show me one company who has acquired as many companies as Blackberry is the past 5 years buying them all in cash and still have over $3.1 billion in cash.
Shoe me one company who had innovated and created something anywhere close to the productivity that BB products provide?
Please before making statements like the one you made, do your research and don't talk for the sake of talking and don't comment without properly backing up your comments!
www.dutycalculator.com/.../Import-duty-taxes-when-importing-into-Indi...In addition to duty, imports are subject to other taxes and charges such as Landing Charge, Countervailing Duty, CESS, and CEX. Duty rates in India can be ad valorem (as a percentage of value) or specific (rupees per unit). Duty rates vary from 0% to 150%, with an average duty rate of 11.9%. 28.825% on cell phones.
so yeah i can see why things cost more in india.... maybe people should stop griping at the company importing the product and take the time to look at where the money is going.

First thing, total biased pricing, second thing, they are trying to fool Indian or taking Indians for granted. Time will tell Blackberry what is the price for the same.
Blackberry will not survive in Indian market.. They may sell few phones only.. Already blackberry market is dead in India... God bless Black-burry (RIP)..
Blackberry cant stand in the market if they continue to launch such type of phones. It is becoz first of all, it is far expensive; Second its very heavy and thickness is too much. Today every mobile phone brands are trying to make mobile as thinner as possible like 6mm, 7.2mm etc. If one has budget of 60 k why wont they choose brands like apple, which is a well known brand in the whole world and a trusted phone with a superior quality.
Trooper, 28 Jan 2016It may be cheaper, but it's not aimed at the same market as the Blackberry Priv. The iPhone... moreBro i don't think 80 to 90 % human, 40+ age who dose hard jobs to earn money or doing business ,will need more then 16 GB space and Bigger name then Apple.
It is absurd to by blackberry priv at such a high price,I don't think blackberry is going to survive anywhere in the world.why do they are foolishing Indian people.They do not have any future any where in this universe
I could buy 6 of redmi note 3 or 2 of letv le max pro with snapdragon 820 with that ridiculous price tag. Or Huawei Mate 8 is also a better buy.

About 910$ on the european market.Not a chance.There are too many other good options at way better prices!
