China Mobile set to carry BlackBerry by end of month

View Comments

China10,000 BlackBerry 8700s are en route to China, following the October announcement. Alcatel’s involvement has earned it branding status on the BlackBerry, which will be carried exclusively by China Mobile for about RMB 3450. Rumors are floating that competing Gome Mobile might be dealing with Alcatel for some 8700s as well, but officials have denied the possibility so far. Well, a limited release is better than no release, eh?

    Any reasoning behind China getting the 8700? Isn't that a 2 year old phone? RIMM is Canadian, are there exporting issues to China regarding certain technologies, similar to those in the US?
