LIME Launches the BlackBerry Curve 8900 With Free Service Offer


Press Release

LIME, the Caribbean’s only full service telecoms provider, and Research In Motion, a global leader in wireless innovation, today announced that the new BlackBerry Curve 8900 smartphone, the thinnest and lightest full-QWERTY BlackBerry smartphone, is now available from LIME in Jamaica and other countries in the Caribbean region.

LIME anticipates that the new handset will be a hit with its customers just like the tremendously popular BlackBerry Bold smartphone, which has been a hot seller throughout the Caribbean. “There’s always a lot of excitement when we have a new BlackBerry product. The BlackBerry Bold flew off our shelves and I think the new BlackBerry Curve 8900 is going to be very popular as well,” said LIME’s Executive Vice President Commercial, Mariano Doble.

To launch the BlackBerry Curve 8900 smartphone, LIME has unveiled a sweet deal for the month of February that offers any new prepaid or postpaid BlackBerry service subscriber, 30 days of free data service. Those interested in learning more can head to LIME’s BlackBerry page.

United Kingdom and Jamaica next to get the BlackBerry Bold

The list of countries now carrying the BlackBerry Bold continues to grow, as Vodafone UK and Cable and Wireless Jamaica both made announcements on Friday while we were stuck in airport hell (note: never tell U.S. Customs that your name is “Cool. BlackBerry Cool.” They won’t think it’s funny).

While there’s no word yet on BlackBerry Bold pricing for C&W Jamaica, Voda UK has posted their pricing lists and they’ll make you scream “God save the Queen!” Featuring a variety of plans, Vodafone is offering the Bold for anywhere between free and £187, with a special Anytime promotion of £35 a month with a 2 year contract for 600 minutes, unlimited text messaging and 500 MB of data. Definitely something we’re not used to seeing on this side of the pond.
