MTN Nigeria and RIM Launch BlackBerry Solution; BlackBerry Pearl and BlackBerry 8700g now available in Nigeria


MTN Nigeria and Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM; TSX: RIM) recently announced the launch of the BlackBerry® Enterprise Solution, offering customers the BlackBerry® Pearl™ and BlackBerry® 8700g smartphones for the first time in Nigeria.


  1. I knew Glo Mobile is the first Nigerian GSM service provider to introduce BlackBerry to Nigeria.

    What is the difference between MTN’s BlackBerry® 8700g and Glo Mobile’s BlackBerry?

  2. The Blackberry device introduced by Glo is the 7290, an older version. The Pearl and 8700 are newer, more capable devices. I like the looks of the Pearl – hot! But I have no use for a Blackberry; sorry. 😀
