Mobilis launches Algerian BlackBerry support


MobilisAlgerian carrier mobilis has recently announced their inaugural BlackBerry support, kicking things off with the BlackBerry 8100 and BlackBerry 8700. Alcatel-Lucent is lending a hand with the launch and support of the devices – if Alcatel’s work is anything like their network expansion in India, mobilis shouldn’t have too much to worry about. As for the Pearl and 8700, they’re solid choices for getting initial footholds in both consumer and enterprise markets.

Reliance begins “largest expansion undertaken by a telecom operator in the world”


TowerIndia’s Reliance Communications has signed Alcatel-Lucent on to expand its CDMA and GSM networks for over $400 million. Heh, for once India gets to outsource someone else. After setting up the hardware and integration management necessary to expand Reliance’s operations, 20,000 towns and 600,000 villages will fall under their coverage.

“The expansion of the Reliance network, particularly in rural areas, will help improve the lives of millions in India”, [said Patricia Russo, CEO, Alcatel-Lucent].
