Ruscommobile, an eBay retailer, is selling the BlackBerry Z10 smartphone for as little as £430 including free delivery, a £10 top up voucher and 440 Nectar points. At the time of writing, more than 10 smartphones were available at this price.
The device – which looks like a close cousin to the Apple iPhone 5 - comes with a 24 months warranty and was launched, together with BlackBerry OS 10, earlier in January.
It is powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon system-on-chip clocked at 1.5GHz and has 2GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 4.2in 1,280 x 768 pixels display, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front facing one, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, BBM Cha and BBM Video, BlackBerry World, 4G functionality and up to 11 hours of 3G talk time.
The Z10 is possibly BlackBerry’s last chance to save the company, which was until earlier this year known as RIM (Research in Motion).
It’s worth noting that the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet – which is already more than two years old - is still available from Currys for £119, a very competitive device which makes for an excellent companion for the Z10.
