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.

BlackBerry Classic Launching In November According To Chen

BlackBerry Classic Launching In November According To Chen

Chen was asked by USA Today’s Maria Bartiromo:

“People love their BlackBerrys. You have a whole host of people who really want you to succeed because they love the product. How important is this loyalty?”

Chen responded (bold emphasis is ours):

“I very much appreciate of that. It’s a big part of where we’re going to go. When you look at our loyal customer base, it’s very much concentrated in the government space, in enterprises like banks, insurance companies and various extremely productive oriented industries that need to be very secure. They need to have high security and trusting of the products, both in the handset as well as the software. That’s a big part of my “road map” and strategy.

I’ll give you a couple of examples: We’re going to return the familiar user experience in the handsets business. There’s a new product called the BlackBerry Classic that’s coming out. It’s an updated and enhanced version of one of our most popular and successful products called the Bold. It will include a keyboard and a good touch-screen, very fast Internet, Web-browsing capability and multimedia capability. But also it will be very productive and very secure. So, all the familiar things that people love, with some new technology updated. That will come out in November along with the server that helps companies manage devices. Not only the BlackBerry device, but every device, the iPhone and androids and Windows and everything else.
