BlackBerry partners with Idea for data offer
Canadian handset maker BlackBerry today said it has partnered telecom services firm Idea Cellular to offer one GB data plan to its customers. Idea Cellular postpaid services users with BlackBerry OS 7 devices would be able to avail BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) 1 GB 2G plan at Rs 83 per month with an annual rental plan of Rs 999 (taxes extra), BlackBerry said in a statement.
This scheme is in line with the company’s commitment towards the Indian market to help the brand reach out to a wider base of potential customers using Blackberry touch and QWERTY OS 7 devices and drive greater adoption, it added.
“BlackBerry currently has some of the strongest and most robust enterprise services and solutions in the market having transitioned from the ‘push mail’. This offer is designed to deliver these benefits not only to consumer but also enterprise users,” BlackBerry India director carrier sales Ashish Gupta said.
