Nigerians have always loved Nokia phones for their long lasting batteries and durability, but it seems the phones are non-existence anymore. Also, many people fell in love with iPhone, but the price scares a lot others away. Well, here come BlackBerry phones.
Yes, ostentatious BlackBerry phones over the years have become household mobile phones in Nigeria because of their ability to chat free of charge with a fellow user no matter where they are in the world (which is enabled by BlackBerry Messenger), cheap data subscription, great picture quality and fast Internet access. Before now, BlackBerry phones were assumed to be phones made for extremely rich people because of their special features and prices.
And of course, that concept was a maxim for so many years, but over the years BlackBerry phones continuously lost a huge fraction of the mobile phone market share which has made the manufacturers to develop BlackBerry Messenger for other mobile companies like Android and iPhone as a way of generating more revenue – this app hitherto was an exclusive messaging application used only by BlackBerry phones users.
The company formerly known as Research In Motion (RIM), failed to watch their competitors closely, reel off more mind-blowing gadgets and free applications that will enable them get more and more new customers.
So, these factors and many other major poor decisions and moves led to the loss of many customers all over the world. Most BlackBerry phones are now so affordable that it will be mistaken to assume that their phones are meant for rich people alone unlike before.
In this piece I will show you the Nigerian prices for BlackBerry phones and why you should get a better BlackBerry phone regardless of its cost.
Nigerian prices for BlackBerry phones
BlackBerry phones are unique in design and distribution. This is because BlackBerry Limited releases phones “in OS series.” If they advance from one OS series into a newer one, the production of the former OS series will stop because all efforts will be geared towards advancing the new products, creating more awareness and increasing its market share.
Despite this fact, I will discuss fully Nigerian prices for BlackBerry phones using a table.
The table below shows a rundown of Nigerian prices for BlackBerry phones:

BlackBerry Limited continuously releases very sleek, edgy and innovative phones just to increase their market share and stay competitive in technology business.
The advancement to the newer BlackBerry 10 OS Series from lower versions of BlackBerry OS 7 and 5 is massive. For example, BlackBerry OS 10 series (like Z3, Z10, Q10, Classic, Passport, etc.) have better camera quality, front camera, longer battery time, supports BBM and Whatsapp calls, bigger screens, better user interface, doesn’t hang, bigger internal memory capacity of 16G, supports Skype and external memory stick up to 32G, etc. unlike BlackBerry 7 OS series (like Bold 5, Bold 6, etc.) which do not support such functionalities.
Therefore, those who still use the lower OS series should try to upgrade to the latest version. Nigerian prices for BlackBerry phones vary from one place to another in Nigeria, but basically, online purchases are often cheaper but by far more likely to be a fake. So, you should be mindful of it.
Also, with just N1,000, you can get as much as 3GB of data from glo, Etisalat, Airtel not MTN which can carry you for long depending on how you consume it.
Nigerian prices for BlackBerry phones like I observed earlier vary from city to city and state to state in Nigeria but most BlackBerry phones appear cheapest in Lagos being the major entry point in Nigeria.
You can also order for these BlackBerry phones online at www.jumia.com, www.konga.com and other major online shops in Nigeria which are reputable for selling quality things. This is because buying goods online appears to be cheaper. Don’t be caught unawares because you saw where you could it cheaper.
Imagine having a video call on your BlackBerry phone. That is correct!!! This is one thing someone who hasn’t upgraded to latest BlackBerry 10 OS series is missing.
Yes, all you need do is to dash out your current lower version or better still sell it off and add some money to get the latest version. Nigerian prices for BlackBerry phones also vary in the sense that there are fairly used phones, brand new and fairly used with accessories.
So, the prices definitely are not the same as brand new phones are the most expensive amongst the three categories mentioned. Now you have good idea of Nigerian prices for BlackBerry phones, quit reading and go to that phone store near you to pick up a BlackBerry 10 OS series phone.
