BlackBerry Z10 hits the grey market for Php43,500

How much are you willing to shell out to be one of the first to own a BlackBerry Z10? Does Php43,500 sound right? That’s what online grey market store Kimstore is asking for the full touchscreen BlackBerry Z10 which runs on BlackBerry’s latest OS.


The BlackBerry Z10 boasts of a 4.2-inch touchscreen with a 1280 x 768 display resolution amounting to a rather impressive 355 ppi pixel density. It is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 (Krait) processor with a hefty 2GB RAM. It also has 16GB internal storage with options for expanded storage via microSD.

The Z10 comes with an 8-megapixel rear camera capable of recording full HD videos, and a 2-megapixel HD front camera. It is also equipped with LTE support, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and uses microSIM. Battery is at 1800mAh and it comes in black and white.

Unlocked units costs $599 so the Php43,500 Kimstore is asking for is quite a bit of a stretch. But if you have the money to burn and a real BlackBerry fan, you might just be tempted to jump the gun.

        • kimstore never overprices. be considerate of other costs incurred in bringing the LATEST in technology to philippine shores, a third world country…loyal fan since 2010

          • yes, kimstore don’t overprice they just take advantage of those early adapters…

          • thejorlanb /

            43.5k last time sa kimstore! Then they just dropped the price to 30k this afternoon. Europe stocks daw ung 43.5K.

      @JAP…. Ang blackberry namatay, inilibing, pagkaraan nang 3 taon, bumangon at umopo sa kanan ng Apple & Android. Its selling well in UK and outselling Iphone5 and Samsung S3 in Canada since the blackberry launch. Read the internet news !!

  5. f thats d price, beliv me la2ngawin yn s market…

  6. sus, ang mahal…di kaya ng nanay.ahahaha


  7. mag china phone nalang ako..hahaha

  8. oh my haven’t they have considered how cheap the cost they spent to build these gappy edges low cap battery and halfly baked piece of hardware.. OS pa nga lang trial pa baka magiging lumia 800,900 lang ito hanggang 7.8 lang and then BB would just withdraw the support for the os if they happen to wake up thinking to build BB10.00000001 heheheheh iphone nalang ako kung ganito ka mahal or konti nalang VERTU na di bale baka FLOP uli ito hahahahah :-)

  9. guys, what’s the fuzz about? di naman to official price…si kimstore lang ang gawa nyan…alam mo na taking advantage of the early adapters….

  10. get HTC Butterfly instead..Blackberry nowadays should be priced wised..cost of manufacturing mobile engine(motherboard) is not too expensive nowadays thanks to China..

  11. Php 29,900 na lang. Asia na ang source niya.

  12. florencio /

    BB Z10 @ 43,000 pesos? That’s a total ripoff as it cost only about 1/2 of that to buy in Canada ($650). Di pa na-rerelease sa USA so some Americans are buying it from auction (eBay) for $1000 plus. This is also a form of rip
    off.BB Z10 is one of the best phones around. Don’t bash it simply because some stores are overpricing this phone.

  13. ang mahal naman -_-
