India's first BlackBerry themed cafe is the SkyPark
posted by Alan F. / Oct 08, 2012, 1:55 AM
The cafe's walls will be lined with NFC stickers so that those with NFC enabled devices can more easily check in.QR codes can be scanned for patrons to receive free items and there will be a free app available each month. The SkyPark cafe is the result of partnership between RIM and Indian BlackBerry site BBin. Oh yeah, did we mention the free Wi-Fi?

Finally some love for India... Not so many people use BB here, but yeah, as said in article BB isn't infamous here. Here's the current scenario I see here (in India) : 1. Many Nokia stores are shutting down, and interesting fact is, most of them are getting replaced by official Samsung stores!! 2. Still no Apple Store here.

I agree with you. There are more Samsung stores or rather named Samsung cafe all around the country. Good thing about the new BB store is that there is some good support in the country. India and china are such huge markets where Samsung and Nokia rule,but an apple store would be nice.

the reason why you are going with the note 2 is because you think that iCrap is highly priced?!! Damn! I wouldn't use it even iff some1 gifts me it, rather sell it and buy a better phone or ultrabook!

I agree.... RIM with the current phones is pathetic.. but the thing is that BBM is still very popular in India and almost everybody has it.. All my friends,, everybody in the office, the Television stars, movie stars etc etc.. its basically all because of BBM... if BBM gets ported to any other OS like it was rumoured to be.. then in India also Blackberry would have been a thing of the past.

Same here in Indonesia. Bbm is very popular among the teenagers, I mean like. If u don't have a Bb "hey you're poor kids" "hey, please add me on bbm, *ups sorry I forgot that you don't have a Bb" and so on...its really really pathetic, You can't judge people's economy by their phone. That being said. A scavenger near my house use BlackBerry bold, I really really hate Bb, that said, I'm still using it as my second phone for bbm, its really hard to contact your friends or family if u don't have a Bb Some people think that having a blackberry smartphone is cool, Well, until they own one, my friend who has a blackberry shocked after they see what my gnex capable of

BBM keps it ticking amogst kids in India ... but that's also losing ground. BB survived because cariers were pushing it and buyers know a sh*t about BB. When we tell them you cannot sync mail & PIM data over a normal mail server even over IMAP then they know what a big piece of SH*T it is and then start doing a bcc of all mails being sent to get a copy of mail on server.

All these cafe tricks are just gimmicks! It wont take long for these cafes to shut down if BB cant launch a decent phone that can compete in the market! BB aint starbucks, its a phone manufacturer...they should venture into cafes once their base product starts selling!
