BlackBerry Z3 Shows Up in Malaysian Database through Brightstar Distribution Partner

Malaysia SIRIMS corporate systems show the Z3, namely the Z3 STJ100-1 is showing approved as of May 14th. Coincidentally, this is the same day that the Z3 device was launched in Indonesia.

Clearly, BlackBerry is working to line up the channels and amass a more widespread launch of the Z3 device in other markets. We suspect that key market targets will be in Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and even South Africa. Other markets like Latin America could perhaps get an LTE variant down the line as well, assuming the general reception remains strong.
