We are looking at supporting the local BlackBerry user community by providing a spot where BlackBerry enthusiasts can converge, learn and share their BlackBerry experience with each other. Together with RIM, we will also have monthly BlackBerry related activities.

"At DiGi, we want to continue to add value to our customers and we believe BlackBerry fans will appreciate a store where they can find every BlackBerry device and PlayBook tablet for the Malaysian market under one roof," added Er.
