RIM exec: BlackBerrys to double in Australia


AustraliaAustralia is facing a BlackBerry boom, according to RIM’s Asia-Pacific regional manager Paul Osmond.

“We’re expecting to see growth well over 100 per cent in the Australian market over the next 12 months,” Mr Osmond said. “Three years ago, I remember being in one of the Qantas lounges seeing one or two BlackBerrys and I had one of them. Two months ago, myself and one of my sales representatives counted 53 BlackBerrys in the Qantas lounge in Melbourne.”

Service bumps
aside, Australia has a really impressive wireless landscape, what with 3G making such headway. Good stuff, Aussies!
