Last week Rogers left fellow Canadians bewildered by announcing that it would not be offering the BlackBerry Z30. The ailing smartphone manufacturer’s first phablet was announced last month, customers would have expected Rogers to carry the device seeing as how its the largest carrier in Canada which has almost always carried BlackBerry devices. Rogers said last week that it believed it could satisfy its customers’ needs for a BB device with its current lineup, but customers weren’t too happy about this decision, they were quite vocal in their disapproval of its decision.

In a statement provided to AllThingsD, the carrier confirms that it will sell the Z30 after all “in response to customers’ feedback and excitement about the device.” Rogers goes further to say that it has a “longstanding partnership with BlackBerry and continue to be big supporters of the company and its products.” Customers in Canada will no doubt be ecstatic, they’ve managed to change the mind of the country’s largest mobile carrier. Its also good for BlackBerry, seeing as how its new phablet will have crucial support of a major carrier, and we all know that the company can do with any and all unit sales that it can generate.
