We have some really bad news for Blackberry fans and consumers who have been praying for the company to get back on its feet. Canadian carrier company Rogers has announced that it will not be offering the Blackberry Z30 smartphone in the country.
Rogers happens to be one of the largest wireless carrier companies in Canada, and the fact that it will not be offering the newest next-gen Blackberry flagship smartphone is a shocker! May be not for all, but definitely for Blackberry and its fans.
Of course, Rogers has its own reasons for making this decision and the company has explained the same as well. The company said that there is limited shelf space available to market products and there is space only for the best in the business, ‘ the biggest winners’ as Rogers prefer to say it.
So if you happen to be located in Canada and still want to get your hands on the Blackberry Z30, a smartphone made by the company that comes from Canada, then you will have to either opt for Bell or Telus. Both these carriers are offering the Blackberry Z30 at a subsidized rate, allowing you to get the device at a much cheaper cost. But of course, let us not forget the two-year contract that you will have to sign as a part of the deal.
And if you are a Rogers consumer and would not want to switch, then you have three options. You can either opt for the Blackberry Z10 or the Blackberry Q10 offered by the carrier or can simply go ahead and buy the unlocked version of Blackberry Z30. You might not want to opt for the Z10 or Q10, but this is a decision you should make with care.
