BlackBerry Event @JWMarriot

I was invited by BlackBerry middle east to attend their event where they wanted to release the new devices that will be available in the Kuwaiti market soon, and the BlackBerry 10.

On display, there some of the latest devices available now.

First of all, Mr. Sabdib Segal - Middle East Chief Operational Officer.

He stated some of the facts about BlackBerry worldwide like : 
  • First mobile in UK, South Africa, Nigeria and many others.
  • More that 77 Million subscriber around the globe.
  • More than 55 Million BBM user.
  • More than 650 partner around the world in 175 countries.
  • More than 400 thousand registered developer.
  • More than 190 million device been sold.
And so many other facts positioning BlackBerry among the top players in the Mobile industry.

Mr. Mohammed Al-Mufleh - Products&Services Director of RIM ME

He started with the introduction of the new 9320 Curve device and 9220 and the features comapred to the very affordable prices making it one of the cheapest smart phones.

Then he introduced the BIG NEWS..
The BlackBerry 10

I've seen this video awhile ago, right after the Samsung Galaxy S III press conference. and I was amazed by the smart features and the keyboard.

I am an old BlackBerry user, and I carry four mobiles all the time, two of them are BlackBerries and can't live without the usability and instant messages. Emails can't be accessed as fast and easy in any device like a BlackBerry and I don't think I will replace it with any other brand. instead.. I will wait for BlackBerry 10.

Then Mr. Ahmed Olewan - Sales Manager - Kuwait explained the Black Berry Bonus. which is a new concept of sales in marketing all together.

The idea or the concept of the bonus : If you're a BlackBerry user, you'll get a discount at some selected places. the list is getting bigger and bigger, so get a BlackBerry and start getting those discounts.

Some of the brands associated with the Bonus program  :
Deer&Dear 10%
Franklin & Marshall 10%
Baroue 10%
V-Cool 20%
Go Sport 10%
British Center 20%
Smash Burger 

and so many others coming soon..

At the end of the presentations, we were invited to the feast.. and everyone got a bag of goodies.

Thanks Dareen
Thanks Bin Sirri

It was a joyful evening :)
