BlackBerry Connect now available in Africa

Comments

Hot on the heels of RIM’s big push into Africa, BlackBerry Connect has now been made available for a few companies in the region. Using the service, users will be able to connect to BIS and BES on select non-BlackBerry phones. It’s not clear exactly which providers provide access on which phones, but Safaricom and Celtel are specifically mentioned, with Celtel providing access on some Nokia E series phones.

    I have used Blackberry connect on different handsets on Safaricom. Tested Nokia, Siemens, Windows Mobile (with extra effort) and Sony Ericsson.

    Safaricom has had this possible since mid last year.
