All Vodafone customers in Qatar can now sign up for a BlackBerry service, with the launch of the service by Vodafone Qatar, further broadening their product portfolio.

For a monthly fee of QR125, new and existing customers can enjoy big value with Vodafone’s BlackBerry service. Customers can instantly send and receive emails from up to 10 email accounts, browse the Internet and chat in real time using BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), all as much as they like while they are in Qatar.

“Data roaming is also available and the rate varies according to the region. For example, roaming within GCC would cost QR20 per megabyte,” said Markus Bikker, Vodafone Qatar’s Product Manager.

With a Freedom account and an active Flexi plan all the customers can start enjoying BlackBerry with Vodafone. There are no set-up fees and no contracts. To celebrate the launch of its BlackBerry Service, Vodafone has also launched an amazing promotion open to all new and existing customers. “When you sign up to BlackBerry on Vodafone, you will pay just QR125 for the first month and enjoy the BlackBerry service for free until October 31, 2010.

“We’re thrilled to be launching yet another exciting service from Vodafone. BlackBerry on Vodafone offers unbelievably great value which we can’t wait for our customers to start enjoying,” said Bikker.

BlackBerry devices are also available for purchase at all Vodafone’s retail stores and at Vodafone’s online store. There is the BlackBerry Curve 8520 for QR999, the BlackBerry Bold 9000 for QR1,799 and the BlackBerry Bold 9700 for QR2,199.
