Blackberry 10 to be rolled out in waves, South Africa and Nigeria to get top priority

So we know that RIM will be rolling out Blackberry 10 devices in the not-so-distant future, but will it be a global rollout or will certain regions/countries get priority? Well it seems that according to RIM’s CEO, Thorsten Heins, the rollout of Blackberry 10 will be staggered into three phases. This was revealed during the CEO’s trip to South Africa where he revealed that both South Africa and Nigeria will be the company’s number one priority.

“South Africa is a priority one market for us, and we will acknowledge that with the launch of BlackBerry 10. There will be three waves in taking it to global markets, and South Africa and Nigeria are in the top range of Wave 1 launches. We will pay tribute to our customers here by delivering BlackBerry 10 in South Africa when it is launched,”

He also addressed the North American market, where he stated that there will be some work that will need to be done in order to get Blackberry 10 devices up to the expectations of their North American enterprise customers with features such as 4G LTE. No specific dates were mentioned, but North American customers, are you bummed that your market has not been given the Blackberry 10 priority?
