Malaysian telco DiGi has opened a store - DiGi BlackBerrry Store - dedicated to 'all things BlackBerry' for Malaysians, which is the first of its kind in the country, said the company.
DiGi head of retail Patrick Er said the new store is located at its flagship store - the DiGi 360 Centre in SoHo, Mont Kiara. Occupying the entire mezzanine floor, covering approximately 1100 sq ft, DiGi has partnered with BlackBerry manufacturer Research In Motion (RIM) to build a personalised one-stop BlackBerry centre to further enhance DiGi's users' experience of their BlackBerry smartphones and BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.
"There are more than 1.5 million BlackBerry users in Malaysia and we see a strong product roadmap which will further enhance this position, and DiGi wants to strengthen our position in this market," said Er. We are looking at supporting the local BlackBerry user community by providing a spot where BlackBerry enthusiasts can converge, learn and share their BlackBerry experience with each other. Together with RIM, we will also have monthly BlackBerry related activities."
"We believe BlackBerry fans will appreciate a store where they can find every BlackBerry device and PlayBook tablet for the Malaysian market under one roof," he said.
