Official news from the RIM Camp, via a press release, has RIM and Airtel, Indiaâ€™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.
â€œWe have always believed in bringing more choices to suit our customers’ requirements. This quad-band EDGE-enabled BlackBerry 7130g will undoubtedly appeal to Airtelâ€™s customers who seek a more phone-centric device that brings the BlackBerry advantage,â€ Sanjay Kapoor, Joint President, Mobile Services, Bharti Airtel Limited said.
â€œThe new BlackBerry 7130g is an exciting addition to the BlackBerry portfolio in India,â€ said Norm Lo, Vice President of Asia Pacific at RIM. â€œTogether with the comprehensive and powerful BlackBerry platform, the BlackBerry 7130g delivers an all-in-one solution with a unique user experience.â€
