WIND Mobile To Offer the BlackBerry 9700
PinStacker javatyger let me know about some big news for our Canadian friends. WIND Mobile will be soon introducing the 9700 BlackBerry when they launch their service in Canada. There have been no dates or prices confirmed yet but this is great news to have a brand new device like the 9700 available as a contract free, prepaid device. Here's more from their official announcement.
"Toronto – December 15, 2009 – WIND Mobile announced today that it will offer the new BlackBerry® Bold™ 9700 smartphone from Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM; TSX: RIM) with a new approach to BlackBerry® service plans that will deliver choice, control and value to Canadians.
“For our pending launch, we are delighted to confirm that the BlackBerry® Bold 9700 will be available to WIND Mobile customers,” said Ken Campbell, CEO of WIND Mobile. “This is a state-of-art 3G smartphone from one of the world’s leaders in wireless innovation. And our unique value proposition is to offer Canadians simplicity, control and value with our BlackBerry® service plans.”
Simplicity: No contract is required when a WIND Mobile customer purchases a BlackBerry® smartphone or signs up for BlackBerry® service.
Control: WIND Mobile will be the first wireless carrier in Canada to offer BlackBerry® service on a pre-paid or post-pay basis – enabling customers to manage their spending and extending service to customers who may not have a credit history.
Value: With no required minimum voice spend and compelling entry level and full service optional add-ons packed with unlimited features, WIND Mobile is making BlackBerry® service more accessible than ever."

I cannot imagine anyone not choosing something like this if WIND can support the business. My concern is that it's going to be like Fido was when City Fido first launched and it was all about the activations and no support from the customer service side of the business.
I am VERY excited to see what happens though in the near future with WIND.
I believe in paying for quality products!
