Default BB 10 coming to China ?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm a big fan of BB. Currently living in Beijing, China.

I have two questions:

1. Does the BB Z10 going to be sold in China? Is it going to be official or not?

2. Would I need to pay extra money in China for the BB infrastructure (in comparison to, e.g., Samsung Galaxy), when using the BB Z10?


Thanks!

Yes, it should be available in China. Not sure of the date.

No, for the most part BIS is not required, but check with your provider first.

Actually, I now read that BB 10 might NOT come to China at all!

"Speaking of Asia BlackBerry's plans for a China launch are still unclear. We asked about specifics at the launch event last week but were not given a clear answer on carrier or release dates. BlackBerry has not responded to our requests for more information on its Asia strategy moving forward."

Unfortunately, it appears that BlackBerry's PR group is the same as RIMs. They can't get the message out properly.

Hi, what do you mean?
I think they don't even know what is the message in this case.

Very hard to get info on launch date...

BB10 Just launched in India, no indication yet when it will be released in China...

You have to under how the new BBRY (aka RIM) works. They have been releasing their devices to countries who carry the most volume first and slowly releasing them in countries that sell very few. I would recommend if you really want one buy one from Ebay or somewhere as I know one the reasons why BBRY doesn't even have their devices made in China is because they would end up like iSheep devices (aka Apple), people in China would be opening up knock off stores trying to selling fake BlackBerry devices.
