BlackBerry has not been a retailers favourite for the last few years here in Ireland and no network have taken the latest devices from the for around two years now and with good devices like the Passport and Leap and recently the all new Classic I wonder why,of course market share is one thing but people don’t seem to be fond them any more,but they have changed and the phones now are quite good and you have the best in security,then we hear the word “Apps” Yes not many native but we have two stores on BlackBerry and we can side load Android apps,most of which work fine.. Being sim free I find the latter of these a tad high considered options on importing.

However this is the first time we have seen these new devices available in retail in Ireland since they launched,hopefully more will follow suit in the coming months,there is plenty of BlackBerry fans still here in Ireland with little nothing on offer from the networks.
