Carrier's $10 unlimited data add-on makes connecting to the Web more affordable than with other carriers
TORONTO, April 19 /CNW/ - Mobilicity may not be the only Canadian
wireless carrier introducing the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ today, but for consumers looking to get the most out of Research In
Motion's debut tablet, it's the only carrier worth consumers' attention
for a number of important reasons:
Mobilicity customers can affordably connect (tether) their Mobilicity
BlackBerry smartphone to the PlayBook to access the Internet where
Wi-Fi is not available, simply by adding Mobilicity's $10 unlimited
data plan to any talk plan. With Mobilicity, there is no worry of
getting an expensive bill due to high tethering usage.
Mobilicity customers who purchase a BlackBerry PlayBook AND BlackBerry
Bold™ 9780 or BlackBerry Curve™ 3G smartphone with any plan and a data
add-on will are eligible for a $100 mail-in-rebate. This offer is for
new activations only and is available through May 15, 2011*.
Mobilicity customers get peace of mind and a quality wireless experience
on Mobilicity's state-of-the-art 3.5G network. The unlimited carrier
does not provide its customers with contracts, credit checks or
outrageous monthly bills containing extra fees and surprise charges, as
is commonly the case with Canada's incumbent carriers.
The BlackBerry PlayBook delivers professional-grade, consumer-friendly
experiences that redefine the possibilities of mobile computing. The
ultra-portable tablet offers a great look and feel, measuring less than
half an inch thick and weighing less than a pound. It features a vivid
7-inch high-resolution display that is highly-responsive with a fluid
touch screen experience. It also offers industry leading performance,
uncompromised web browsing with support for Adobe® Flash® Player 10.1,
true multitasking, HD multimedia, advanced security features,
out-of-the-box enterprise support and a robust development environment.
