No, you didn’t misread that. In an effort to stir up some social media buzz, BlackBerry is offering up to $550($600CAD) for your iPhone 4S or higher. This is a very interesting strategy and not your typical BlackBerry Style. Doubtful they’ll win back millions of iPhone with this offer but they will most likely gain a few people back and create some much needed social media marketing.
This promo doesn’t actually start till Dec 1st, 2014 and runs until Feb 13th, 2015.
