BlackBerry gets green light for China

Comments

ChinaAfter eight years of paperwork, BlackBerry has finally gotten the go-ahead to launch in China. There’s already 5,000 preorders for the BlackBerry 8700 that’s planned to drop before the end of the month on China Mobile. The price point is an issue for the Chinese, who might be used to paying a hell of a lot less for mobile services than we are. As for language, hopefully RIM will be able build off established support strategies, and not tool around with the issue like they did in Japan.
