  1. Even though the Blackberry Z3 is an attractive both featurewise and technically, the issue with many aspirants would be as to how to go in for then same when already they have more than one smartphones. Hence, the company could make the offer more attractive by offering to take the exiting smartphone and offer a discount of at least 50% in the price of Blackberry Z3. This would definitely drive the product much more aggressively it is felt.
