"Customers across 17 cities will get discount of up to Rs 11,000 if they buy BlackBerry Z10 under this scheme. We have given reference rates to dealers for existing BlackBerry users willing to shift to BlackBerry Z10," BlackBerry India's director for channel sales Prosenjit Sen said.
Users of BlackBerry Bold 9900 can get discount of up to Rs 11,000 under this scheme while users of entry level models like BlackBerry Curve 8530 can get discount of Rs 3,000.
BlackBerry Z10 is being sold in India on e-commerce websites in the range of Rs 37,500 to Rs 42,490. The phone has 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8MP rear camera and 2MP front camera.
Under the scheme, BlackBerry is offering credit card users option of balance payment through 9 monthly installments without any upfront cash payment, no interest and zero processing fee.
Sen said that the scheme is valid for users of other branded smartphones but the discount in that case will be on the discretion of retailer.
"Our retailers will estimate the resale value of the phone brought for exchange and accordingly offer discount," Sen said.
The scheme is available across 1,400 outlets in 17 cities including four metros, National Capital Region, Lucknow, Bangalore, Baroda and Chandigarh.
