Comments

Alcatel-Lucent logoAlcatel-Lucent has announced that they are developing an application that will track voice and data usage for prepaid users. The app compares current usage to the amount remaining, which will hopefully keep the number of overage charges to a minimum. The company will integrate the application with the networks of operators where the application will be used. The aim for the partnership is to increase BlackBerry use in developing markets. This isn’t the first time RIM and Alcatel-Lucent has joined forces, and their ongoing partnership has already increased usage in Eastern Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
