TECNO Mobile, one of the leading smartphones brand has announced its collaboration with Blackberry on the mobile application, BBM.

TECNO mobile phones are using the famous and popular android system, which already conquers the heart of most of phone users in the world. While Blackberry messenger, was initially only used by Blackberry phones users and also very popular especially in the Nigerian market, “Everybody have a BB pin”… Well, now BBM is available on the android system and customers can enjoy even more features with this new version, some of those listed below:

 

BBM Chat – Enjoy real, immediate conversations with friends on Android, iPhone and BlackBerry smartphones. Not only does BBM let you know that your message has been delivered and read, it also shows you that your friend is responding to the message.

More than chat – With BBM you can share files on your phone such as photos and voice notes, all in an instant.

Keep your group in the loop – Multi-person chats are a great way to invite contacts to chat together. BBM Groups let’s you invite up to 30 friends to chat together, and go a step further than multi-chat by sharing photos and schedules. And, with Broadcast Message, you can send a message out to all your BBM contacts at once.

Post Updates and stay in the know – BBM lets you post a personal message, profile picture and your current status, and lets your contacts know instantly in Updates.

Your unique PIN – Every BBM user has a unique PIN that maintains your privacy, so you don’t have to give out your phone number or email address to a new or casual contact.

Blackberry Messenger (BBM) allows chatting and sharing of information with up to 30users in a single conversation. It has been mainstay of blackberry device since early 2000s. BBM also made available for it user a unique PIN that maintains their privacy. This prevents you from giving out your phone or email address to a new or casual contact.

 

According to Vice President, TECNO Group, Mr. Arif Chowdhury, this collaboration is a unique one that will enhance the brand feasibility of both TECNO and Blackberry.

Arif, disclosed that the agreement, which was signed on 17th September, 2013 will allows Blackberry messenger to be preloaded on TECNO Smartphones. Based on this arrangement, customers who buy TECNO phones will find the BBM application already preloaded and this available in 20 countries. For those customers already using TECNO phones, it will possible to download the application through the Google play store

“This collaboration is not only good news for TECNO and Blackberry, but also and especially for customers. Indeed Blackberry users who want to keep their BB Pin while using TECNO phones can now make it possible through the new application version coming soon” Arif Said.

“We are very proud of this collaboration, It is our objectives not only for Nigerians and indeed Africa as a whole to acquire Smartphones and enjoy a smart life but also to be able to use the phone to its maximum benefit and that is why we collaborated with Blackberry to preload BBM on all TECNO Smartphones” The Vice President Said.

On the other hand, the Vice President for BBM at Blackberry Mr. Andrew Bocking said, “BBM is a very engaging messaging service that is simple to use, easy to personalize and has an immediacy that is necessary for mobile communications,” With many people now using TECNO Smartphones, this is absolutely the right time to bring on board BBM application on TECNO phones to allow its numerous customers enjoy the best of interactions with families and loved ones.

 

Mr. Chowdhury added that TECNO phones will be preloaded with BBM and also with the new Palmchat version, “Palmchat is an application which allows you to create thousands of new friends around you and all over the world, these two applications complement each other very well” he concluded

Re: Tecno Partners With Blackberry To Preload BBM App On Upcoming Tecno Phones by CODEEATER(m): 9:27pm On Oct 24, 2013
What people don't understand is that Chinese make some of the best tech out there...thier economy speaks for them..

Tecno is a phone manufacturer...they make cool stuff.... now Android OS is open source, and virtually free,any phone maker can acquire it and use it on their product...
Now for a phone to be powered by Andy,it needs to meet some specs required by Android os... these specs have been fully met by tecno.. if their phones weren't good enuf,it wont be able to run properly... and from personal experience tecnos have not disappointed at all...with every new release they get better.. what makes their phones cheap is d kind of materials used,mostly plastic, but it dsnt affect d durability... my l3 has fallen from all kinds of heights ,but still works without a glitch... a dual core phone with 1gb ram from Nokia of Ericson or lg or HTC will cost nothing less than 50k..but we have tecnos like m7 at 25k n a1 at 30k...


Fact remains, Tecno makes good phones that can compete with other bigr brands... ndey r here to stay.... hate all u wnt
