    RIM gets approval to sell Blackberry in China

    Advertisement



    BEIJING -- It took eight years of effort, but Research In Motion Ltd. has finally cracked the world's biggest cellphone market, winning permission to sell its BlackBerry devices in China for the first time. After many delays, RIM managed to get a long-awaited approval for its BlackBerry handsets from the Chinese Ministry of Information Industry last month, according to a manager in the company's Beijing office.


    The company expects to begin selling its BlackBerry 8700g handset in Chinese shops at the end of next month, the manager said yesterday. He said the company has already received almost 5,000 advance orders for the device, mostly from corporate customers, especially foreign multinationals with offices in China. It will probably be sold in China at the equivalent of about $700.


    "It's a high-end device, mainly for the needs of business people," he said. "But I expect the sales will be as hot as in other countries in the future."

    I hope that this will bring some of China's technology to RIM as well. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    It has a lot to do with Americans if they travel to China and can't use their Blackberry's.

    Being American, I see why people outside the US have the perception they have of us.
    But to answer your question, it can mean a lot for Americans. Say RIM adds a few million blackberry sales in China, this means more money for R&D for newer technologies and can help bring us better devices sooner.
