CellOne & Digicel To Carry BlackBerry 10

January 30, 2013

Both Digicel and CellOne confirmed that they will be carrying the new BlackBerry 10 device which was launched today.

“As the largest and fastest 4G wireless carrier with the most BlackBerry customers in Bermuda, we were excited by the launch announcement of BlackBerry 10 by Research in Motion (RIM) today.” said Frank Amaral, Chief Operating Officer at CellOne.

“The BlackBerry Z10 will be the first device to run on their new BlackBerry 10 operating system which so far is getting excellent reviews in pre-launch testing. Our corporate customers can also look forward to a new BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, BlackBerry’s evolved Enterprise Mobile Management solution, which now extends beyond managing just BlackBerry.

“In addition to supporting older BlackBerry OS devices, the PlayBook and BlackBerry 10 phones, BES10 also supports device and enterprise application management for iOS and Android.”

“We are looking forward to launching the product here at CellOne, which will occur sometime in the next few months. As we get closer to a launch date, we will release more information to the public including pricing and plan options,” concluded Mr Amaral.

Digicel Bermuda Sales Director Shane McDonnell said, “There has been a steady flow of questions from our customers in relation to availability of the new device in Bermuda.

“Having been able to preview the BlackBerry 10 Smartphone I strongly believe it will become a popular device with our corporate and retail customers. The advancements made on Apps and the ability to balance your work and personal life on the BlackBerry 10 will be welcomed by our customers.“

No details of the planned pricing were released by either carrier.

    BB10 will be on sale for $200 with a 3 year contract (WTF??) in America. I can only imagine what preposterous pricing Bermuda will have it as.

    Well to start they are no longer RIM so I hope they figure that out before they cut a cheque.
