It’s interesting to see where RIM is heading to next. It’s sort of like Where in World is Carmen Sandiego, but for gadget geeks. The Morung Express is reporting that pre-paid BlackBerry data and voice plans are now available in Nagaland, a hill state located in the far north-eastern part of India.
The region is very rural and mostly fueled by agriculture, but BlackBerry data plans would mean residents would start getting Internet service where they may otherwise not have had any. Airtel is responsible for the services, and they have already employed many residents, further helping develop the region.
