BlackBerry launches the iAfya health app for the people of Kenya



BlackBerry has teamed up with Avallain and produced a super health application for the people of Kenya. The iAfya app for BlackBerry Smartphones will give BlackBerry subscribers in Kenya fingertip access to a broad range of health information. Designed especially for the BlackBerry platform the application entails various sections including basic first aid, frequently asked questions, contact a health worker, look up medical conditions, look up medical procedures, news and even an illustrated section which has a sort of cartoon vibe.

With a tab at the top of the application to switch between English and Swahill the app will give the Kenyan people the freedom to make the most of discovering health information and helping them with seeking assistance. iAfya works on all BlackBerry 7 devices and is free to download from BlackBerry App World now.

RIM launches the Curve 9320 and 9220 in Kenya



RIM's latest BlackBerry 7 devices are the Curve 9320 and 9220. These are being marketed and aimed at emerging BlackBerry markets due to their entry level status and low budget costs. The entry level devices are already gaining popularity in India and the Philippines.  

Next in line to get the new Curve models is Kenya. Recently launched in Malaysia, the Curve 9320 and 9220 both come preinstalled with OS 7.1 and also have a built-in FM Radio so you can enjoy listening to the radio without having to worry about using up your data. There is also the BBM hot key, which has been a hit with its current users. The Curve 9320 and 9220 are now available to purchase from authorised BlackBerry retailers and distributors around Kenya.
