In what has been a tragically difficult year for BlackBerry, the cell phone maker deserves a reprieve and Canada’s Rogers Wireless is just the company to provide one. After reports last week declared that Rogers would not be carrying the BlackBerry Z30, Rogers customers seem to have made themselves heard. The company released a statement on Wednesday to inform the public that it will now be carrying the Z30 “[in] response to customers’ feedback and excitement about the device.” Of the many words one might choose to describe BlackBerry’s current situation, “excitement” might not make the list, but the Canadian BlackBerry fans are apparently the exception to the rule. Rogers full statement follows below.
We have a longstanding partnership with Blackberry and continue to be big supporters of the company and their products. Rogers will be making the device available online, through our national reservation system and directly to our business to business customers. We’re pleased to add the new Z30 to our roster of Blackberry smartphones, which includes the Z10, Q10 and Q5.
