BlackBerry continued where it left off at last October’s GITEX Shopper by drawing crowds to its partner’s stand with attractive offers on popular BlackBerry 10 smartphones including:

– the BlackBerry Z10, the first BlackBerry 10 smartphone, which was available for AED 899;

– the BlackBerry Q5, the youthful and fun BlackBerry 10 QWERTY smartphone, which could be snapped up for AED 799

– the BlackBerry Q10, which combines the power of the BlackBerry 10 platform with a large, re-engineered physical keyboard and stunning touchscreen display, which was available for AED 1599

These great prices along with various bundle offers led the sales for BlackBerry smartphones during the show and due to the success of GITEX Shopper will continue to be available across the Middle East in UAE, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar, KSA and Bahrain.

Christophe Corsi, Country Director for the UAE at BlackBerry, said: “It’s been another hugely successful GITEX Shopper for everyone involved with BlackBerry. We’ve been seeing positive feedback from all our retail partners, with some even reporting sales growth of over 100% during the four days. The entire range of BlackBerry 10 smartphone, which maximize users’ communications, collaboration and productivity, were well sought-after”.

Ashish Panjabi, COO of Jacky’s Electronics said: “BlackBerry’s promotion strategy was clear and the BlackBerry 10 devices tempted visitors looking for incomparable typing experiences”.

Sean Connor, General Manager of Plug-Ins, commented, “We are extremely pleased with our participation during the spring GITEX Shopper. As expected, smartphones led the way and we saw huge demand for the BlackBerry 10 smartphones, that even rose 119 percent compared to Spring GITEX 2013”.
