RIM To Arrive in China Before End of Q1 2008

By James Falconer on 17 Jan 2008 09:45 am EST

Rockin the RIM in China As I reported the other day, rumor had it that RIM was going to hit mainland China somewhat soon. A report today from the Shanghai Daily seems to confirm this.

I'm not going to mince words here, this is what the paper had to say:

"BlackBerry phones will be available on the Chinese mainland for the first time by the end of first quarter, said the country's major distributor China Mobile yesterday, which halted talks with Apple to introduce iPhone into China.
The first model offered to Chinese customers will be BlackBerry 8700 and it will be available for business use, but not to personal users, according to an official at China Mobile's Shanghai branch data service division."

Shanghai Mobile is reportedly going to charge 598 yuan/mth ($54 USD) for BlackBerry services, which would include e-mail, internet and phone.
