Nigeria and South Africa are the first two markets that will sell the BlackBerry Z3 in the continent. In Nigeria, the price of the BlackBerry Z3 is 40,000 Naira ($252) while an official pricing is yet to be set for South Africa (the price tag should be around $252).
The BlackBerry Z3 comes with a 5-inch 540 x 960 pixels display, 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5GBof RAM and 8GB of expandable internal storage.
The smartphone runs on BlackBerry BlackBerry 10.2.1 OS and is armed with a 5-megapixel rear camera and 1.1MP snapper at the front.
Though a $252 price can be easily considered inexpensive (regarding the specs of the Z3) in some other places, the Nigerian smartphone market can be quite different.
