RIM to introduce BlackBerry to China

By Justin Mann on
Despite the issues plaguing the BlackBerry and RIM as a company in general, they are still steadfast in promoting their technology. Currently, they are set to embark on a “landmark” sales hunt by introducing services to China, far removed from the issues in the U.S. They will start with their standard push e-mail service for the BlackBerry, and it's happening sooner rather than later, with initial roll outs next week. The standard fair of BlackBerry services is also there, such as MMS and SMS, web browsing, et cetera.

This may give RIM the revenue it needs for future development, or to help with the recent restructuring they have undergone as a result of lawsuits. A lot of people were talking about the death of the BlackBerry, but with a rollout in China that's likely not going to happen.
