Poll: Where Was Your BlackBerry Manufactured?

68 Comments

Have you ever checked where your BlackBerry was made? BlackBerry manufacturing has been a hot topic lately as RIM has fired some of its North American manufacturing staff and began a new plant in Malaysia. There has also been major manufacturing shifts to plants in Mexico and Brazil. Here at the office, we have a Bold Touch 9900 and a 9810 made in Mexico, a PlayBook made in Taiwan, and a 9800 and an 8700 made in Canada. Where is yours from?

Check behind the battery to see where your BlackBerry was made and let us know.

To check where your device was made, lift the battery and look at the sticker. The sticker contains patent info, the PIN, an IMEI, the model number and where the device was made. See the above sticker for an example.

Comment:

1. Your device model.
2. Where it was made.
3. Where you are located.

We have a very global reader base here at BlackBerryCool and it should be interesting to see where these devices are from.

    I hear the Bold line was designed in Germany. Leaders in engineering and failures at modern dance movements.

    I just bought a 9900 which is made in Mexico 4 and has a “Original Blackberry Smartphone” stamp on the box. Every time I turn off the phone this stamp occurs. I find it a bit sketchy to be honest and am thinking about exchange the unit. Does this happen on your phone? Thanks!
