BlackBerry Launches “Software Development Centre” in Cairo

Research in Motion (RIM) plans to open its first Africa-based development centre in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.

The centre will be established at Smart Village, the high-tech industrial park located alongside the Cairo-Alexandria road on the western edge of the capital, as Ahram stated.

One application currently under development will provide BlackBerry users with information about Egypt’s coming presidential elections, RIM said.
