BlackBerry Z3 is doing ‘extremely well’ in India says CEO

In news that will have definitely made its makers a happy bunch, the BlackBerry Z3 is doing well in India in terms of sales. This information comes from none other than the company’s CEO who has asserted that India as well as Indonesia – the only two nations it’s available in – have proved to be successful markets for the handset.

However, he has stopped short of revealing any numbers for some reason. BlackBerry CEO John Chen mentioned that the Z3 has been ‘extremely well received’ in both countries over the respective weekends of its launch. Moreover, there has been an increase in demand as well, which in his opinion is due to its large screen size, its long battery life and its aggressive pricing.
