Starting on April 23rd, LIME Jamaica will be releasing the BlackBerry Z10 to their customers and to help kick off the celebration, they're hosting a live launch party. The event, taking place via their Facebook page on April 18th at 7:30pm (That's tonight!) will feature plenty of demos and talks from BlackBerry representatives and one luck fun who tunes in will win themselves a BlackBerry Z10 by playing a trivia game throughout the evening.

"Our customers are pumped and waiting with high anticipation for the introduction of the BlackBerry Z10 to Jamaica. We have a spectacular launch planned and so we are giving our customers and friends on Facebook the opportunity to share in what will be a world-class event," says Carlo Redwood, vice president, marketing, LIME. LIME is known to deliver, first, the world's most sought-after devices with, of course, the best experience for users on our network. On the 23rd, we will also have a special offer for our customers who want to get it first."

bmobile on board yet, or they slowing around as usual?

Shane Bennett

B-Mobile is LIME. They re-branded in 2008. Although a few Caribbean countries still carry the name

Easy-G

Curiosity. Is LIME owned by Orange?

AnimalPak200

Lime used to known as Cable & Wireless.... which, as the name implies... is as ancient as submarine telecom wires (to the islands). It's probably now some part of Vodafone (isn't everything nowadays?)

"Curiosity. Is LIME owned by Orange?"
Heh...I got it :-)

theonick

No they aren't, Lime is owned by parent company Cable and Wireless.

PLTM

LIME is a brand of Cable & Wireless (West Indies) Ltd. It is not part of Orange or Vodafone. LIME/Cable & Wireless is primarily Caribbean.

According to Wikipedia, Vodafone purchased Cable & Wireless worldwide in 2012.

Triniboyfella

Cable & Wireless was 'demergered' into Cable & Wireless Worldwide and Cable & Wireless Communications. Cable & Wireless Worldwide is owned by Vodafone, that's correct. But Cable & Wireless Communications which is branded as Lime in the Caribbean (except for BVI and TT) is not owned by Vodafone.

I'm check it out and see what is going on, but the common man like me probably won't be able to afford that phone, it could be as much as $70,000 to $80,000 Jamaican dollars, will see if they give any plans to reduce the cost.

junior2you

thats so true brother and im leaning towards the 80grand more

I've had my white z10 stl-100-3 on digicel for the past month and the 4G speed is amazing. I bought it online and shipped it in as digicel doesn't carry the phone as yet. Glad to see Lime stepping up nd offering it first.

pepe241185

Digicel is launching the 23rd too ... had my Z10 for about 3 weeks too on Digicel ... looks like they blocking mobile hotspot though ... the min i put their sim in, the options disappear ...

malwayne66

I called Digicel some weeks back and they said they dont block mobile hotspot on the z10 or any of their BlackBerry devices, then again, they were kinda shocked when i said i had a z10 to start with

rocmon

Digicell rules, gonna be slipping my Digicell SIM into my 9810 next week ;)

Via Z10

Digicel Jamaica will launch the Z10 very soon as well.

Adeff Smith

Its a good look or 'a mad ting!'

KasukeSadiki

Anyone know if it's out in Cayman on the 23rd as well?

iTurn

The Cayman launch is next week also, my device is preordered, can't wait!!

KasukeSadiki

Also, the comments on this article are epic lol

msaterj

I'm in jamaica but I'm a Digicel customer.....

bbm_vi

You need to make that switch!

msaterj

Nope don't need to switch, I'm quite comfortable with digicel.......

brhilaire

Congrats Jamaica. Soon in Dominica I hope.

Thinking about the launches of BB products over the year, BB is nicely positioned to cut the sails (and sales!) of the Samsung GS4 and iPhone 5S. With a Q10 hitting the markets in 2 weeks, they will hang on to the customer base and strengthen their business client relationships. However, it will also provide more support for the BB10 platform. After the iPhone 5S is out, BB should be releasing a new device in the August timeframe just in time for back-to-schoolers. The Z10 and Q10 should still be available. The next big launch is in November, in time for the holidays ;)

Triniboyfella

My understanding is that its a Lime launch. So all Caribbean territories that has the Lime network will have our Z10 launch on 23rd April. I'm just a lil impatient to see the prices here in Trini.

swade86

Good to see a LIME being featured on Crackberry.com...Yeah Jamaica is BB country and people enjoyed the launch and I many are enjoying the phone as well. I hope to win one because the retail price is really high here. Hope the other islands get it soon too.

LIME is launching the Z10 here in St. Lucia next week Monday.

Big up my JA peoples! Z10 all the way!

junior2you

I'm happy to see my country get big up via LIME and as a lime customer i am proud they are on board as well big up to lime and Crackberry cant wait to get my Z10

mrspeedy101

LIME launched it today in Dominica but i just bought an Iphone 5 so il wait till the Q10 (since i still have my 9900)to be my second device ...a blackberry still dominates the Caribbean market and they are sold usually above full price for them a 9900 today still goes for about 2300$ XCD that's 852.09 USD and everybody has one

wehttam

dont forget they are sold locked to the network for that price which to me is really sad after dishing out so much money on a phone

RP Singh

Need to launch in Bim.

Sent from my iPuh-lease-as-IF

wehttam

they launching in bim on the 23rd as well

DarioBB92

I'm from the Cayman Islands, right next door to Jamaica, Z10 comes out tomorrow here too. Happy to say I had one before most here cause I'm just that determined! looking forward to people getting on board with BB10 here though since most have ditched to iPhone as of late.. I'm one of the few still left supporting BB strong!
