Major Canadian Retailers Can Now Carry Unlocked BlackBerry Smartphones

Ingram Micro Mobility is providing unlocked BlackBerry 10 smartphones throughout Canada as part of a new agreement between the two companies.

The agreement equips BlackBerry with broader distribution of its products and services throughout Canada by leveraging Ingram Micro Mobility’s supply chain expertise, infrastructure, and channel reach to resellers, mobile carriers, and retailers.

“This partnership will make it easier and more convenient for customers across Canada who value productivity and security to find the BlackBerry 10 smartphone that suits their needs,” said Matt Reaves, head of global distribution at BlackBerry.

“Our distribution channel will allow a number of new partners to sell unlocked BlackBerry devices, offering greater choice for customers,” said Steve Roberts, executive director, Ingram Micro Mobility Canada.

Unlocked BlackBerry 10 smartphones will be available at retail locations online and in stores “in the future,” according to BlackBerry.
