Aircel has confirmed that it will launch BlackBerry 10 in India when the smartphones are available in India, which should be a few weeks after the global launch scheduled for January 30. Various Indian telecom operators were contacted on their plans to launch BlackBerry 10 (BB10) in India and while Aircel has confirmed that it will launch BlackBerry 10.
Vodafone has said it will make an announcement only after the global launch. Airtel and Tata Docomo had not replied at the time of writing. Idea and Reliance GSM were the only operators who said they have no plans to launch BlackBerry 10 devices. Given Vodafone’s strong ties with BlackBerry globally and the fact they have already confirmed they will carry BlackBerry 10 in both the UK and the Netherlands, it would be very unlikely that it would not launch BlackBerry 10 in India.
