Canada has highest BlackBerry penetration in the world?

Comments

CanadaWe just got wind that the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association has issued an announcement from CTIA today, with member Jim Balsillie saying a few things about the Canadian wireless industry.

“Canada was the birthplace of the BlackBerry platform and Canada continues to generate the highest per capita penetration of BlackBerry smartphones in the world today,” said Jim Balsillie, co-CEO of Waterloo, Ontario-based RIM.

“We are fortunate to be located in a country with a thriving wireless industry that continues to offer businesspeople and consumers world-class wireless data services. RIM works with hundreds of carriers internationally and I am proud to say that the Canadian carriers and our collective success are well respected within the worldwide industry.”
