RIM will roll out 3G service in India in a few months, said a senior executive.
RIM will be the first to offer 3G connectivity in India, said the executive, who was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
3G connectivity will come as a huge boost for the company, as it has been facing a slow uptake of 3G in its Indian markets.
According to a recent report by Bloomberg, the market penetration of 3D glasses is still lower in India than in the US.
RIM has invested a lot in the 3D technology, including partnering with DLP, one of the biggest 3D camera companies in the world, to bring 3D to India.RIM is already planning to expand its 3G services to India, which is expected to bring in $1 billion in revenue for the country.
The company also plans to introduce a smart phone-like feature in the next update, and will start offering this feature in select markets soon.
