So I’m streaming music tonight, and the Jimmy Eat World song “The Middle” comes on.
I’m streaming using my BB Z30. This time with the Slacker app from the Amazon app store. And I’m using Bluetooth audio connected to a cool little Toshiba BT wireless speaker. Yup, .apk music apps have great access to Bluetooth.
Anyway, I felt like checking my carrier (Telus) mobility website for access and pricing on BlackBerry devices because of the revelation that Rogers had here in Canada.
And, what do I see?
I see people getting ripped off. That’s what I see. If you buy an Apple product, you might want to, no you SHOULD look at BlackBerry!
Look at this!
Look at the prices! Are you nuts?
First of all, $450.00 for an ancient iPhone 4s with a paltry 8gb? Zero dollars down, but really? It should be a giveaway! Scratch that, it needs crushing.
Then there’s the 16gb iPhone 5c. A plastic version of last years iPhone 5 for $130.00. This is bad, it’s yesterday’s news, and a suspect purchase at best.
My favorite is the 64gb iPhone 5s for $440.00 on a 2 year contract. Are you kidding me? What a rip off! For a phone that can’t do what a BB Z30 can do! Thanks to Veeru for kicking it up to 31!
Now look at the BlackBerry pricing…
The “App Gap” is over people. Look at it!
A Z30 for 50 bucks on the SAME 2 year plan, plus throw in another 50 bucks for a 64gb SD card and you have a 80gb phone with none of the restrictions Apple puts on it’s users!
That’s a savings of $340.00 over a 64gb iPhone 5s!
A phone that is riddled with security issues.
The oldest mobile OS on the planet.
Fraught with messaging problems.
A BB10 device is a much more logical choice for consumers, business, and industry.
It’s safer, smoother, and more affordable.
