Australian mobile carrier, Optus, have announced the release of the first Pre-Paid BlackBerry BIS plan in Australia.
The budget BlackBerry 8520 Curve is offered as an outright buy for $399 and pre-paid BIS plans from as low as $30. This is bound to open up BlackBerry to a much wider audience as budget minded and limited income users will finally be able to afford to get into what a lot of us have taken for granted.
I have long been a antagonizer for Optus, or any Australian carrier, to offer a pre-paid BlackBerry option and it finally looks like someone has heeded. Well done Optus for taking the first step and now we are just waiting for Vodafone and Telstra to follow suit.
