Over in Thailand BlackBerry have teamed up with Ingram Micro and intend to expand their global relationship to distribute BlackBerry products and services across the country. Ingram Micro already has a network or operators and retailers in Thailand but they intend to utilize their market presence to increase sales of the BlackBerry Z10, Bold 9900, Bold 9790, Curve 9320 and Curve 9220 - interesting to see that legacy devices are still in high demand on some parts of the world.
BlackBerry and Ingram Micro have been working together to provide comprehensive product training, in-store marketing support and point-of-sale materials to Ingram Micro’s distribution partners in Thailand in order to deliver an optimum shopping experience for customers throughout the country.
“Ingram Micro Mobility has been a strong value added partner for us around the world. We are excited to partner with them to expand our retail presence in Thailand,” said Benoit Nalin, Country Director of Thailand at BlackBerry. “Our goal is to make BlackBerry's unique offering easily accessible to customers in Thailand.”
“We are excited to expand our relationship with BlackBerry in the growing smartphone market in Thailand,” said Clement Mak, Managing Director of Ingram Micro Thailand. “Working closely with our local partners, Ingram Micro Thailand, through our Mobility Business Unit, will help accelerate the growth of BlackBerry products nationally.”
Yet another good sign that BlackBerry is doing all they can to boost sales.
