3 Feb 2009

MTN Rwanda, the country’s largest cellco by subscribers, has launched BlackBerry services on the wireless market, targeting 1,000 customers by the end of the year. It has introduced two devices; the 3G-enabled BlackBerry Bold for RWF430,000 (USD773) and the BlackBerry Curve 8320 on sale at RWF300,000. The cellco’s sales and marketing manager, Yvonne Manzi Makolo, said the device is ‘not for everybody, it is not a mass market product, it is more of a corporate product,’ indicating that MTN Rwanda will target corporate, government and medium-high value customers.
