    MADE IN CANADA

    Advertisement



    Hello all! this has just occurred to me and I thought I would share it. Credit is due to BB for continuing to manufacture their devices in Canada, rather than using cheap third world labour or going to China like everybody else. Just another reason (if one were needed) for buying BB!!! ALL TOGETHER AFTER THREE, "Oh Canada...."

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Actually, there was a recent thread about some american Pearls having been made in Mexico.

    Perhaps it's like VW (at least it used to be this way), americans got the VWs made in Mexico, where everyone else got the VWs made in Germany. ???

    Not true, newer units are being off-shored. To be honest as RIM's production grows the plant in Waterloo won't be able to maintain demand. Foreign manufacturing is a natural progression.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Yeah, only the first batch of Pearls seems to have been made in Canada. Then, predictively, production moved to Mexico.
