BB 9900 Launched

Jhb – RIM (Blackberry) alongside Vodacom launched the new Bold 9900 Touch at a secret event this past weekend.

Selected media & guests were treated to a performance by British star Tinie Tempah at this secret event which no one could identify. Vodacom's Managing Executive for sales, Zunaid Dinath, said: “We're excited to bring the first Blackberry 7-based Smartphone to our customers in South Africa in the form of the Blackberry 9900 which will provide our customers a rich and integrated communications experience”
