I just happened to be in a Wal-Mart the other day, and, as I walked by the cell phone area, casually asked one of the folks working there how the BlackBerry devices were doing. The young lady told me that they were flying off the shelves, especially the new T-Mobile BlackBerry Curve (8520). I asked if they offered the pre-paid (T-Mobile Complete) version as well and she said yes, but, that she couldn’t remember selling any as most people thought that $300 was way too expensive.
I know that this conversation is completely subjective and based just the thoughts and opinion of one Wal-Mart associate, so, I pose the question to you…
Is the T-Mobile Complete BlackBerry Curve 8520 too expensive?
Not if your credit is jacked up and you really want a BlackBerry. I would love to see the 8530 on Virgin Mobile.
LOL. True that Mannyrulz. I find it rather odd that blackberry are flying off the shelves and Iphones selling for a mere $99 and $199 are not. Don’t get me wrong, people are buying a lot of them, just not as much as blackberry curves.
Having a contract free plan is more than overdue in the US. Other countries have been doing it for many years now. The consumer deserves to have many choices.
Full disclosure… She said iPhones were selling pretty welly too, especially the $99 ones… 🙂
Yeah, it’s way too much. It needs to come down to about half that to be competitive, particularly when you take into account it’s only gonna work on the T-Mobile network.
