- Adrian Ungureanu

It seems that the latest smartphone carrying the BlackBerry might be a lot more expensive in Europe, at least if we take in account the rumors priced set be Dutch retailer Belsimpel.

The recently announced BlackBerry Motion has a recommended price of $460, and is expected to hit shelves in UAE and Saudi Arabia later this month, but European retailers try to make a profit out of the BlackBerry fans.

The Dutch retailer, is rumored to bring the new Motion at a price tag of €499, that’s about $585. It might not be the final price, but it’s not very rare for retailers to capitalize on the early adopters enthusiasm and force them to buy the new smartphone at higher prices.
