Ingram Micro & BlackBerry Announce Distribution Agreement in Latin America

Z30

BlackBerry just scored another solid distribution agreement this time with Ingram Micro Mobility. They are the worlds largest wholesale technology distributor which is key for BlackBerry. They signed this agreement to make Ingram Micro the leading provider of BlackBerrys portfolio in Latin America to reach VARs, integrators, carriers, retailers, and others. Ingram had this to say about the agreement:

"BlackBerry is a major player in the Latin American wireless industry and we’re pleased to help grow their reach with retailers and wireless carriers," said Anthony Mackle, acting president of Ingram Micro Mobility Latin America. "We are confident that the combination of our extensive infrastructure, unmatched logistics capabilities and the strength of our sales force will enable us to extend the current distribution network of BlackBerry’s smartphone portfolio, while also opening previously untapped channels for them."

  1. hope these news are valid for Brazil because we are facing a blackberry q10 and z10 shortage in stores heres.

    • More like we’re facing carriers that have no solid reason to sell the devices due to the prices being completely off the charts (oh, and good old Berry-Prejudice: I had to lecture and then demonstrate to a VIVO “tech guru” how the Z10 could actually keep up with each phone he kept pitching it against).

  2. It’s a good sign that people in Waterloo are planning for a future of continued and new devices.

    Otherwise there would be no need to set a new distribution channel.

    It’ll keep costs organised, too, if they can use something already as powerful as the Ingram Micro network instead of their own internal systems.

  3. nice !!!

  4. This is good news but Brasil (carriers and consumers) were left with a very bad taste over the BB10 launch and R$ 2500 devices ($1250).

    If this deal doesn’t mean prices are coming down radically, they may as well pull a Japan here too.
