West Africa, you have reason to celebrate. There namely is a newcomer in RIM's portfolio of BlackBerry supporting countries, and that country is Niger. With the cooperation of service provider Moov, customers in Niger will soon be able to experience the incredible world of push e-mail, BlackBerry Messenger and more. At launch, Moov Niger will offer the BlackBerry Curve 8520, the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and the BlackBerry Storm2 smartphones. Definitely, a handful to choose from, and even more than Japan has in its collection so far.

Positive about bringing BlackBerry to Niger is Ben Cheick Haidara, CEO of Moov. He commented, "Since March 2008, Moov has revolutionized the telecommunication market in Niger, and continues to do so with the introduction of the BlackBerry solution. Moov will offer a selection of powerful BlackBerry smartphones at affordable prices that will allow our customers to enjoy the various mobility benefits that the BlackBerry solution offers both in their personal and professional lives."

There can not be enough BlackBerry supporting countries, can there? I personally welcome Niger to the broad world of BlackBerry. And here is to hoping that RIM will introduce the BlackBerry solution in other countries as well. Any CrackBerry readers from Niger already? Introduce yourselves in the comments!
