New bidorbuy App for BlackBerry 10 Coming Soon

UPDATE: As of October 2016, bidorbuy is retiring its BlackBerry mobile shopping app.

(29 January 2013) The custom-built bidorbuy shopping application for BlackBerry® 10 will be available for download as soon as the all-new device, featuring the BlackBerry 10 operating system, hits the South African market in the first quarter of 2013.

The global BlackBerry® 10 launch will take place in multiple countries around the world, including South Africa, on 30 January 2013. This day will mark the official launch of the new platform, BlackBerry 10, as well as the unveiling of the first two BlackBerry® 10 smartphones. 

“As South Africa’s largest online marketplace, understands the crucial importance of mobile commerce,” says bidorbuy CEO Jaco Jonker. “People are now more comfortable using their mobile devices to shop from wherever they happen to be, without having to wait until they are in front of a computer.

He adds: “Having fully-tested the bidorbuy application on the BlackBerry® 10 platform, we are confident that the release of the shopping application for BlackBerry 10 smartphones will bring about a new wave of uptakes among our existing users, as well as attract new users to our trading platform. The app is truly cutting-edge and delivers a smooth and engaging experience to buyers.”

The bidorbuy shopping application for BlackBerry 10 smartphones has been developed in partnership with Prezence Digital. Tim Bishop, CTO at Prezence Digital says: “The great user experience of the application has been even further enhanced on the highly impressive BlackBerry 10 platform by the Prezence Digital team."
