An Ungrateful Blackberry
Not a single mention of Africa in his keynote, despite it being one of the biggest growth areas for BB. At least 8 - 10 million of that 60 million subscribers come largely from South Africa and Nigeria. Not a single mention there.
Despite the promises he made repeatedly about SA and NG being 'wave 1' launch markets, I had to go digging to find out that the SA launch will be March at the earliest...and not a single mention of a release date in Nigeria.
I'm just mad that I'm gonna have to order my Z10 from the UK...:480 pounds from Carphone Warehouse and that, plus international shipping, is nowhere near cheap
Here's the direct promise from Thorstein just so you know I'm not lying
Blackberry 10 to be rolled out in waves, South Africa and Nigeria to get top priority | Ubergizmo
“South Africa is a priority one market for us, and we will acknowledge that with the launch of BlackBerry 10. There will be three waves in taking it to global markets, and South Africa and Nigeria are in the top range of Wave 1 launches
. We will pay tribute to our customers here by delivering BlackBerry 10 in South Africa when it is launched,”
