    Of that list only Indonesia has a partner lined up, but they'll distribute only in Indonesia.

    Ohhh brilliant, I was really looking forward to it as my passport replacement.

    I think by the time it gets through all this and gets launched it will be too late.

    Since TCL will also be dealing in Middle East, it should not be so hard for Indians to get their hands on one. And I think, in Middle East, there shouldn't be any problems with frequencies

    I would imagine they are working on finding a licencee for the Indian market.

    It was not a licencing deal, it was just a partnership to bring Blackberry devices to the Indian market.

    But since there are no more Blackberry devices, they have nothing to do going forward.

    Actually as per this article today tweeted out by BlackBerry, there is a deal coming.

    "The final piece of the jigsaw before BlackBerry phones (as Chen hopes) become a worldwide force once more is the trio of Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka, with Chen claiming a deal for a local builder is on its way."

    Won't matter, everytime BlackBerry releases a phone in India this forum gets flooded with people posting that it is priced too high for India. At least we won't have to see multiple threads about it being too expensive

    You may find it does, if Asia Pacific is still a band 'standard' then india may be covered.

    Which countries does India use the same bands as?

    PS: I'm in Aus.

    As usual like many other another Gentleman having perception and lots of confusion about India.
    A reality.
    Indian user still pays full price of cell phone may it be Rs 70000 82000 Apple iPhone 7plus or cheap Rs 800 dumb phone and then pays charges to Telecom operator for making call and using data services.
    No one uses heavily subsidized contract phones in India.

    Ya but they do this with absolutely zero complaints about the iPhone price yet expect BlackBerry to give their phones away pretty much.

    I wasn't referring to subsidized phones...i was referring to market value for the device . The same market value that the rest of the world pays for a non subsidized device. The same price that I have paid for my last 9 phones in Canada.
