How do you convince reluctant people to switch phones? Trading up their existing device for a new one seems to be an easier option. Now Brightstar is offering a Trade Up program which aims to drive up ownership of the BlackBerry Z10 smart phone. The trade up value is quite attractive and depending on model, your phone could fetch as high as RM1,800. Strangely, the trade value of your device also depends on the Z10 model that you’ll pick. If you opt for the Z10 LTE version, you will get a slightly higher value.
Some of the smart phone trade up value are listed as follows:
iPhone 4 8GB – RM1,065 (Z10 3G), RM1,084 (Z10 LTE)
iPhone 4 16GB – RM1,080 (Z10 3G), RM1,099 (Z10 LTE)
iPhone 4S 16GB – RM1,304 (Z10 3G), RM1,323 (Z10 LTE)
iPhone 5 16GB – RM1,668 (Z10 3G), RM1,687 (Z10 LTE)
BlackBerry Bold 9900 – RM934 (Z10 3G), RM953 (Z10 LTE)
BlackBerry Q10 – RM1,227 (Z10 3G), RM1,246 (Z10 LTE)
BlackBerry Z10 3G – RM983 (Z10 3G), RM1,002 (Z10 LTE)
Samsung Galaxy S III 16GB – RM1,169 (Z10 3G), RM1,188 (Z10 LTE)
Samsung Galaxy S4 16GB – RM1,585 (Z10 3G), RM1,604 (Z10 LTE)
Samsung Galaxy Note II – RM1,434 (Z10 3G), RM1,453 (Z10 LTE)
Of course, it is subject to the condition of the device as well. If you look at the list above, it is funny to see that Brightstar has also included their latest BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 into the trade up list. On top of that, even its more expensive Q10 is listed with a lower value than the older Galaxy Note II and iPhone 4S.
If you’re interested to switch to a BlackBerry Z10 with this trade up program, just visit one of Brightstar’s participating dealers and they will evaluate your current phone to determine the balance price you need to pay for a new Z10. The current BlackBerry Z10 retail price is listed as RM1,799 for the 3G version and RM1,899 for the 4G LTE version.

Brightstar Malaysia, authorized distributor for BlackBerry products in Malaysia, is currently running a promotion offering a price cut of RM466 across the full BlackBerry PlayBook range.
Promotional prices for the PlayBook:
16GB — RM1,133 (was RM1,599)
32GB — RM1,433 (was RM1,899)
64GB — RM1,733 (was RM2,199)
In addition, Brightstar is also offering discounts up to RM899 when you purchase the PlayBook together with a BlackBerry smartphone. More details here.
The discounts are following a trend that suggests BlackBerry is trying to clear stocks of its unsuccessful PlayBook tablet. Just recently in the US, RIM announced that is it giving away a free PlayBook with every two purchased. Closer to home, we saw previously Celcom and Maxis offering a similar combo deal to the one that Brightstar is offering.
Things are not looking good for the Canadian tech company as Reuters report RIM shares plummeting to a seven-year low as the manfacturer’s US market share takes a nose-dive from a respectable 24% last year to a dismal 9% in the third quarter of this year.
Will RIM be able to recover from this downward spiral? It’s not impossible but RIM needs to get its a$$ in motion to catch up with the advancements made by Apple and Google.
Just a short one. We’re just received an update from Brightstar confirming that the sleek looking Motorola RAZR will be coming to Malaysia, and that’s all we know for now as Brightstar did not say when the device will be launch and how much it will cost.
Looking at how things are panning out, a November launch date is very possible and looking at the trend of smartphone pricing currently, the RAZR shouldn’t cost more than RM2,200 or thereabouts.
So, who’s excited?

The BlackBerry Bold 9900 and Torch 9810 retail pricing has been revealed at RM2188 and RM1988 respectively by Brightstar today. If you can’t wait to own it, both devices are now open for pre-booking at their Midvalley roadshow from now until 21st August (Sunday) with a deposit of RM300.
As reported earlier, the Bold 9900 will be made available at retail outlets from 15th September 2011 and it is likely the Torch 9810 would be out at that time as well.
This discovery was spotted by Rodger and he managed to saved the screencap of both phones before Brightstar removed the Torch 9810, leaving behind the Bold 9900 as shown above.

For the PC Fair this weekend, BlackBerry is offering a pretty good deal with 50% off the RRP on your second BlackBerry purchase. That’s right when you buy a BlackBerry device you’re entitled to purchase the second unit for only half of price. The catch is that the offer is limited to the first 30 customers/day (10 per device) and one offer per customer.
In addition to that, BlackBerry is offering “free accessories” worth RM264. We’re not sure what these accessories are and its only for the BlackBerry device purchased at full price only.
