Blackberry Z10 Available In Bermuda For $1250

February 10, 2013

The new Blackberry Z10 is now available in Bermuda, with “The Hub” — located on 61 Middle Road, Warwick — retailing the new devices for $1,250.


A spokesperson for the store said the phones are unlocked to any network here in Bermuda and overseas, and they are currently available in white, with the black models to be available end of next week.

They have sold around half a dozen so far, and and the next shipment of the Blackberry Z10 is due in this week. The store is open Monday to Saturday 11-6, and from 1-5pm on Sundays. For more information call 324-2846.

According to ZDNet, the BlackBerry Z10 is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz processor supported by 2GB of RAM. There are two cameras: a front-facing 2-megapixel fixed-focus unit with image and video stabilisation, capable of 720p HD video; and an 8-megapixel autofocus camera capable of 1080p full-HD video.


“The most significant thing about the BlackBerry Z10 is that it runs the new BlackBerry 10 OS, an entirely new operating system that BlackBerry hopes will revive its fortunes,” the tech site reported. “The BlackBerry 10 user experience is built around three concepts — Hub, Peek and Flow — and is designed for one-handed use.

“The Hub is a combined inbox for your communication and calendar apps. Different sweep and swipe gestures let you Peek at the Hub from any app, and Flow around the UI — which lacks a conventional home screen or button. The Hub is an all-in-one inbox containing email, SMS, BBM, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, calendar notifications and more.”

Both Digicel and CellOne are also expecting to carry the Blackberry Z10 in the future.

    $1,250?! For a phone?! Bermuda is another world…

  2. Ryan says:

    The price can’t be too high if they’ve already sold half a dozen!

    • bermuda shorts says:

      The price cant be too high- either ur stupid like the other 6 people that bought them or u married to the man that has that eclipse boat parked up on front street-ha ha ha

      • Ryan says:

        Actually, it’s simple economics. Something is worth what people will pay for it. If people will pay $1250.00 for the Z10, then that is what the Z10 is worth. You simply charge what the market will beat; obviously, the market for new phone in Bermuda can bear quite a bit, even in a recession.

        By the way, you might want to brush up on your high school economics. Just a thought.

    $1250 ya serrrrrrs bie !!!

  4. Navin Johnson says:

    $199 in the states on a contract

    • .am says:

      And off?

    • BlackBerry by Choice says:

      Correction Navin… They are not available in the states till mid March… Only in the UK and Canada right now… They cost $650 off contract. So add Canada tax… The unlock free… Shipping to NJ… Then shipping to Bermuda and import duty your lookig at approx $900-$1000 landed here. So the hub looks to be making $250-$350 profit. I saw one on emoo for $1500. I see them on eBay for $1500-$2000… So its all relative.

      • RME says:

        Exactly my thought too. These ppl better not be complaining that they can’t afford buy their child a new pair of school shoes or say they can’t make rent. Too many have mixed up priorities.

        • RME says:

          Sorry this was supposed to go under “Prices are Disgusting” post

        • jon says:

          they wont be able to buy new shoes or rent after they have bought the Z10 hahahaha, but in all fairness just about every new phone introduced in Bermuda has always been around $1000 unlocked. Remember the iPhone 3 at mobility was $1200. I personally just think blackberry is a dead OS when compared to droid or iOS.

      • navin johnson says:

        the estimated price for a blackberry 10 in the US is $150-$199 on a two year contract….likely to cost $900 here on a contract….similar to the price gouging we see here on the Iphone…blackberry screwed up the launch……

  5. Prices are disgusting... says:

    Serious tho! I hope everyone that is buying this phone has all their bills in order! just saying

  6. DreamCatcher says:

    First I laughed that they bought the phone/data device without a warranty for $1250.

    Then I laughed because they bought a Blackberry.

    • BlackBerry by Choice says:

      Do some research… The Z10 is the next big thing.

      • Too little too late says:

        Lol oh please! I’ve seen what this new operating system can do and I’m not impressed. Not to mention every review says the camera is horrible. Ppl on this island need to move on. Blackberrys are so last decade and $1000 is too much for ANY phone

        • BlackBerry by Choice says:

          Blah… The camera being so so is nothing that a software update can’t fix.

        • ABM says:

          Actually, blackberry is the business worlds preferred choice of phone. They have the biz world on lock.

  7. Nuffin but de Truth! says:

    I have an old motorola beam me up scotty flip fone and it works perfectly.

    $1250 gets me anywhere in the world!

  8. BlackBerry by Choice says:

    Considering that a 16gb iphone 5 is $1399 at cellone of contract I don’t think this is a bad price.

    • bermuda shorts says:

      U got to be kidding -thats way too expensive

      • SoMuchMore says:

        iPhone 5 in the US good old A is 649 so why is BDA always allowed to overprice things? HMMM

        • BlackBerry by Choice says:

          Apparently its not overpriced at all because people are buying them!

  9. Bermuda Shorts says:

    I knew they would exploit the situation and rob people buying those blackberrys- People just shouldnt buy them and let them stay on the shelves and rot.Even in these hard economic times people are trying to con people.

    • WhistleBlower says:

      I agree if you have a phone that is working SAVE your money and let theses sellers SWEAT it out I do not care about import and duty I CARE about thr PROFIT $1250 I have flown to Canada purchased the phone! Government could start MANDATING NEW LAWS against PRICE GOUGING instead of wasting my taxes on pee pee test!!!!

  11. M.P.Mountbatten JP says:

    I once bought a JVC VCR for $1200.00 .

  12. Dollars and sense says:

    $1250 buys a lot of groceries, bills, petrol ect! Guess each to their own but it won’t be me paying that kind of $ for that phone! Just saying!

  13. Beam me up Sparky says:

    I remember the time when if you wanted to tell anybody anything you had to go round and see them or write them a letter. Not that I would want to go back to those times, but it never caused us any problems !

  14. Come On Man!!! says:

    Are they out of their damn minds?

  15. US Observer says:

    Wow…you can’t be serious. I agree with “Bermuda Shorts.” When will it end? What planet does Bermuda sit on? You can fly to any US city and buy the same phone for half the price unlocked and return and still have money left over to pay duty.

    • BlackBerry by Choice says:

      Actually you can’t. They aren’t available in the US yet.

      • navin johnson says:

        they are not available in the US because Blackberry screwed up the launch…..they have only had years to plan for it……short the stock they are DOA

  16. Micro says:

    And then the retailers cry when we buy oversees instead of shopping locally.

    Why on earth would I pay $1000+ for something I can buy for $600 on ebay, $50 shipping, pay the 25% duty fee, and still come in at a few hundred dollars cheaper??

  17. Driva says:

    Samsung 4 will be out next month, they will be running for that too……SMH

  18. tricks are for kids says:

    Just curious as to why SOME are worrying about whether ones bills or rent is paid. …if a person wants to buy a phone and not pay their bills than that will be THEIR problem…..yes the economy is rough right now but its only affecting some….there are people that do actually have money and if they wish to spend $1200 of THEIR money on a phone I’m not “hatin” …..whatever floats their boat….I personally wouldn’t I’m quite happy with my Samsung Galaxy 3 which I got on preorder in May of last year on contract for FREE……

  19. BlackBerry by Choice says:

    Funny thing is after this media coverage they are sure to sell out!

  20. Y-Gurl says:

    Thats a lot of money for a phone from a company that might not be around in 12 months, this is RIM’s last hope

  21. Mr. B says:

    The only reason someone will buy a BB10 will be to say they bought the last phone ever made by rim. They cant even keep up with apple let alone an android..

  22. Xman says:

    I believe I have just seen the ultimate RIP OFF.—$1250 for a phone -well what else can it do wash dishes!
    The Apple I phone 4s I use abroad was only $199 with a $2 year plan.
    My el cheap” Samsung I use here was only $80 but greedy Cellone is ripping of on my monthly payments which average
    $150 a mouth— thats why I use e-mail a lot.
    My friends in the U.S. will be paying around $250 with a 2 year plan.
    come on Bermuda Resident’s – I know your better than that!

  23. Eyeinthesky says:

    Never ever buy the first version off anything! All the bugs will be gone n more whistles n bells will be added!

  24. Patricia says:

    Why buy it at all ppl. I say no-one purchase it and let them sit on shelves for months. I bet those prices would come down then. Its all about supply and demand; demand and supply – economics. If its not sellling prices WILL come down. Come on Bermuda lets get smart. Even if you have the money to purchase WAIT till they have to bring price down. Dont support these greedy retailers.

  25. Ottojr says:

    Blackberry(Rim) is on its way out anyway. If it were not for BB Messenger most would not even have it.

  26. citi zen says:


  27. BDAsunshine says:

    At this time BB Messenger on the new BBZ10 will not work in Bermuda.

  28. Shar says:

    I’m too sorry too but this is absolutely ridiculous! I have never paid more than $250 for a phone and I never will! I’m not interested in keeping up with the next person when I have bills to pay and more important/basic things to do with my money like feed my damn self! Honestly I sincerely hope the six people who already bought the phone were actually able to afford it (if so then more power to them) because if they scrounged and sacrificed more important things to buy a cell phone then I just cannot understand that kind of thinking.

  29. undertaker says:

    Wait for the Q10.

  30. navin johnson says:

    Blackberry shares drop as Home Depot switches its managers to the Iphone 5…..glad I shorted Blackberry….10 is obsolete at launch…..

  31. Rea W says:

    Seriouly Bermuda is designed to break you and people are so interested in showing off or trying to impress others (so sad) they will actually go out and buy this phone then the following week complain they need groceries, gas or something they could have used that money for.

  32. Rea W says:


  33. Can Beat that! says:

    You can get them in Bermuda for $1100 Unlocked as well!
