Vodacom BlackBerry 10 launch this week

Vodacom looks set to launch their first BlackBerry 10 products this week. This is according to a message on the company’s official Twitter account and feedback from a source close to the BlackBerry 10 developments.

This morning (19 February 2013) Vodacom Tweeted “Rise and shine, you beautifull people of Tweepieland. Brace yourselves, we are about to rock this boat!”.

This showed that the company is about to launch something significant, and in the South African mobile market there is currently nothing more significant than BlackBerry 10.

In a follow on discussion with a person close to the development it was confirmed that Vodacom is planning to launch BlackBerry 10 this week.

Details about the launch are still sketchy, but it looks like consumers will be able to get their hands on the new BlackBerry Z10 smartphone before the end of the week.

The other mobile operators – MTN, Cell C and 8ta – look set to launch the new BlackBerry 10 smartphone towards the end of next week.
