New Delhi: Canadian firm Research In Motion (RIM) has slashed the price of its 'PlayBook' by more than half to Rs 13,490 for the 16 GB version to cash in on the festive season and burgeoning demand for tablet PCs in India.

RIM, which is known for its BlackBerry series of phones, had introduced PlayBook in June in the Indian market.

"The 16 GB version of the PlayBook is available at Rs 13,490 in the festive offer, a more than 50 per cent discount from the regular price of Rs 27,990 under a limited festive season offer until December 31," a RIM spokesperson said.

A tablet PC, though smaller in size, has PC-like functionalities.

The prices for 32 GB and 64 GB versions have also been reduced.

The 32 GB version will be available at Rs 15,990, while the 64 GB model will be priced at Rs 24,490 under the limited period offer, the spokesperson added.

The devices are currently available at Rs 32,990 (32GB) and Rs 37,990 (64GB).

The Canadian firm had launched the PlayBook in India, along with other markets like the UK, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, Australia and the UAE.

The seven-inch tablet, PlayBook, runs on a new operating system built by QNX Software Systems -- a RIM unit that makes software used to run everything from cars to nuclear reactors.

On a PlayBook, users can go online only using a Wi-Fi network or by synchronising the device to their BlackBerry smartphones.

According to analysts, sales in the tablet PC segment in India are expected to touch one million units over the next 12 months.

With 3G (high-speed internet services) being rolled out aggressively, the opportunity has only expanded, they said.

Since the launch of Apple's iPad in the country, the tablet market has been witnessing huge competition, with more and more new contenders launching their devices.

BlackBerry maker Research In Motion said it has slashed prices on its PlayBook tablet in India in a move aimed at boosting dismal sales for a device that was briefly considered a potential threat to Apple's iPad.

A spokesman for RIM said it would offer discounts on all three PlayBook models in India until December 31. The promotion reflects similar price cuts offered in North American markets for more than a month.
The company is roughly halving the price of the PlayBook in India, which RIM views as a big growth market. Growing demand for the BlackBerry in many emerging markets has helped offset flagging North American sales of the once-vaunted smartphone.

Waterloo, Ontario-based RIM has fallen out of favour with both investors and customers, as it has struggled to keep pace in a fast-evolving smartphone market. In recent years, Apple's iPhone and Google Android devices have gobbled up RIM's market share. RIM sorely needs the PlayBook to succeed as it plans to next year launch new smartphones based on the QNX operating system used in the tablet.

If developers fail to create applications for the PlayBook, RIM's new line of smartphones will likely continue to struggle against the iPhone and Android devices that already boast huge libraries of applications and games that consumers crave. The wildly popular game Angry Birds has become symbol of the relative dearth of consumer-friendly applications available for the PlayBook. The game, already downloaded hundreds of millions of times, has long been available on both Apple and Android-based devices, but paid versions of the game for the PlayBook only went on sale last week on BlackBerry's App World website.

The PlayBook, which RIM launched to scathing reviews in April, has sold fewer than a million units, while Apple sold more than 11 million iPads in just its most recent quarter. The base 16 gigabyte version of the PlayBook is currently selling in North America for $199. By comparison, the 16 GB iPad retails for a base price of $499.

Earlier this month, RIM said it was booking a $360 million after-tax writedown on PlayBook inventories and expanding its promotional pricing offers on the PlayBook.

As part of the promotion in India, RIM said the 16 GB version of the PlayBook is available at 13,490 rupees, a more than 50 percent discount from the regular price of 27,990 rupees. The 32 GB model is available at 15,990 rupees and the 64 GB model is for 24,490 rupees, compared with regular prices of 32,990 rupees and 37,990 rupees, respectively.

Adding to its woes, the company announced earlier this month that it was delaying the launch of its QNX-based smartphones to late 2012, long after its initial promise of a first-quarter delivery. RIM said the delay was necessary so that it could make use of more powerful and energy-efficient chipsets expected to arrive in mid-2012.

The long list of setbacks have sent RIM's shares tumbling more than 70 percent this year to levels not seen since early 2004.

RIM cuts BlackBerry prices by up to 26% to boost sales
Last Updated: Wednesday, March 28, 2012, 

 New Delhi: BlackBerry-maker Research in Motion Wednesday slashed prices of its handsets by up to 26 percent as it looks to grab a bigger share of the smartphone market in India.

The reduction in prices of handsets comes after the the Canadian company cut prices of its tablet PC PlayBook in December last year.

"RIM as a brand has moved from just an enterprise device to as a more consumer device. Be it our services or the product, we have seen a strong uptake by the youth and therefore, to get the devices into more hands, we are cutting the prices," RIM India Managing Director Sunil Dutt said.

The move will help us tap a wider base of the large market that India is, he added.

While the price of entry-level model -- Curve 8520 '   " has been reduced by over 18 percent to Rs 8,999 from Rs 10,990, the price of Torch 9860 has been reduced by over 26 percent percent to Rs 21,990 from Rs 29,990 earlier.

The retail price of Curve 9380 and Curve 9360 has been reduced to Rs 16,990 and Rs 18,990, respectively.

The handsets were earlier available for Rs 20,990 (Curve 9380) and Rs 19,990 (Curve 9360).

However, market analysts said mobile handsets are generally avilable at a price lower than MRP.

"These four handsets comprise a bulk of sales in the country, it is 60 percent of the business from India," Dutt said.

According to a CyberMedia study, smartphone shipments touched 11.2 million units in calendar year 2011, recording a year-on-year growth of 87 percent.

While Nokia was the leader in the smartphones segment with 38 percent share, Samsung followed with 28 percent share in CY 2011. RIM stood at third place with a 15 percent share.

Dutt said the company aims to further enhance its presence and leverage the demand for its products.

"The focus is not just on reducing prices, but we want to address a larger number of people and give them the overall experience of BlackBerry. We will continue to focus on bringing locally relevant products, services and applications to Indian consumers," he said.

In December last year, RIM had slashed the price of its PlayBook by more than half to Rs 24,490 for the 64GB version under an offer from the original price Rs 37,990. This was further reduced to Rs 19,990 earlier this month.

A report released by Cybermedia Research indicates 21 percent market share for BlackBerry PlayBook in India, he added.

The price of the 16GB version was however raised marginally to Rs 13,990 from Rs 13,490 (available under the offer). The device was originally launched at Rs 27,990.

US Senate Finally Gets Rid of BlackBerry Phones

It's the end of an era. The U.S. Senate will no longer provide BlackBerry phones to its employees, switching to Samsung or Apple devices and ending the Canadian manufacturer's long tenure as a government staple. Prized for their security and typing ease, addictive "CrackBerries" persisted in the federal government long after the wider marketplace upgraded. The company, too, has moved on. Struggling to convince investors that it has a bright future beyond its famous phones, BlackBerry now makes more of its money from software and services.
