Vancouver’s Mobio celebrates new BlackBerry app with national contest (win a tablet!)

Vancouver’s Mobio Identity Systems, an international mobile payment and marketing company, has launched its flagship Mobio App for BlackBerry, enabling BlackBerry devices with all the mobile payment and identity management capabilities found on Mobio’s iPhone and Android applications. All BlackBerry Pearl, Curve, Bold, Tour, Torch and Style models are supported.

To celebrate Mobio’s recent listing on BlackBerry App World, the company is holding a national interactive TV contest. Together with exclusive broadcast partner, Shaw Media, the contest will be available to 14 million Shaw viewers across Canada.

For a two-week period that began June 20, Mobio barcodes will be displayed on three of Shaw’s most popular channels—Action, Diva and Showcase. Using their smartphones, viewers will be able to scan the barcode off the TV screen to be instantly entered to win a tablet PC. Viewers are encouraged to watch often and enter as many times as they like.

“We are excited to celebrate the launch of Mobio for BlackBerry with our very first national Mobio-enabled TV contest,” said Clovis Najm, CEO of Mobio Identity Systems. “Now virtually all 6.6 million Smartphone users in Canada will be able to benefit from Mobio’s payment and identity capabilities as well as participate in interactive multi-media contests and promotions.”
