National mobile phone company, MTN, has joined the BlackBerry service industry in Uganda with the launching of the stylish BlackBerry Curve 8300.
Speaking at the launch MTN Chief Executive Officer Noel Meier said the BlackBerry solution brings together smartphones, software and service to allow easy access to email, phone and corporate data applications on the go. He said the introduction of the BlackBerry solution will greatly supplement MTN's cutting edge technology and innovativeness.
The MTN BlackBerry technology is being implemented by the Canadian company, Research in Motion.
Charmaine Eggberry, Vice President of Research in Motion said the BlackBerry Curve 8300 smartphone offers powerful communications and productivity capabilities. It also has an advanced multimedia suite that allows users to watch videos, capture and share pictures and listen to music.
Celtel Uganda initiated the BlackBerry technology in Uganda shortly before last year's Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting that was held in Kampala. The versatility of the BlackBerry is popular among business managers and corporate officials who would like to be connected to their business information no matter where they are.
