A few days ago BlackBerry had reduced drastically the price of its flagship smartphone Z10 to take advantage of the just started festival season. We were expecting that the company may reduce the price of its other BlackBerrry smartphones to boost the sales of its dwindling sales, and because the company is in the news for wrong reasons. But contrary to our expecttions, there is no news about reduction of its prices of other models of BlackBerry smartphones.
BlackBerry still has few die-hard fans and we list below few BlackBerry smartphones, which could still be gifted in this festival season to Blackberry lovers:
