RIM to Manufacture BlackBerry in Brazil Starting with Curve 8520


Jim Balsillie announced that RIM has signed an accord with Singapore’s Flextronics to manufacture the BlackBerry Curve 8520 in Brazil. RIM may consider producing other models in Brazil in the future. Co-Chief Executive Jim Basillie said “This is part of a greater market strategy at RIM to target Latin America. It is extremely important for us to be here to manufacture locally and sell locally,”. Currently RIM manufactures devices in Mexico. I am positive about diversifying manufacturing facility to Brazil will surely help RIM meet the world demand of this popular BlackBerry model with greater ease.
