BlackBerry 7130g headed to India


Official news from the RIM Camp, via a press release, has RIM and Airtel, India’s leading mobile services provider, releasing the BlackBerry 7130g in India later this month. Appears as though a world takeover is brewing. Maybe RIM higher-ups just play RISK with one another, and everytime they takeover new land, they have to launch a device in that area. Seems reasonable.

“We have always believed in bringing more choices to suit our customers’ requirements. This quad-band EDGE-enabled BlackBerry 7130g will undoubtedly appeal to Airtel’s customers who seek a more phone-centric device that brings the BlackBerry advantage,” Sanjay Kapoor, Joint President, Mobile Services, Bharti Airtel Limited said.

“The new BlackBerry 7130g is an exciting addition to the BlackBerry portfolio in India,” said Norm Lo, Vice President of Asia Pacific at RIM. “Together with the comprehensive and powerful BlackBerry platform, the BlackBerry 7130g delivers an all-in-one solution with a unique user experience.”
