BlackBerry DTEK50, DTEK60 will not be sold online through OnlyMobiles

first_imgUpdate: BlackBerry India has categorically denied that it has entered into any sort of agreement with OnlyMobiles.com to sell its phones via online channel. The company has gone on record to say that OnlyMobiles is not the exclusive authorised seller for BlackBerry phones in India. We have also reached out to OnlyMobiles and will update the piece as and when we have an update on the same.   Here is what a BlackBerry spokesperson says: “We would like to update that there has been no such alliance made by BlackBerry (with OnlyMobiles) and as a result the news carries erroneous information.”Now, this is a very peculiar situation, especially for a company like BlackBerry that is not a small company and has a reputation to protect. On the basis of the statement provided by OnlyMobiles and BlackBerry it seems that one of these companies is lying. Is it BlackBerry or is it OnlyMobiles? We are not sure, although a BlackBerry representative does tell India Today Tech it doesn’t want to accuse OnlyMobiles of lying. Considering the curious case between BlackBerry and OnlyMobiles, if you are buying the a BlackBerry phone our suggestion will be to get it from a reputable and more well-known dealer, whether it is the offline purchase you are making or the online one.          —Here is what we reported earlier on the basis of an announcement made by OnlyMobiles. BlackBerry will sell the recently launched DTEK50 and DTEK60 phones in India via offline and online channels. While Optiemus Infracom Limited will be selling BlackBerry phones in India offline, online its phones will be available from OnlyMobiles.com. OnlyMobiles, which calls itself an omni-channel online platform, announced on Wednesday that it has become the authorised seller for BlackBerry phones in India.advertisementAlso Read: BlackBerry launches DTEK50, DTEK60 Android phones in India, price starts at Rs 21,990 “We are getting great response from customers and we are happy that we are able to connect with die-hard fans of BlackBerry brand.
