Scancom opens second BlackBerry Centre, in Scotland

Following on from the launch of the BlackBerry Centre at Scancom’s HQ in Leicester, Scancom now open their second dedicated BlackBerry Centre in Edinburgh, Scotland.

As with the Leicester BlackBerry Centre, clients will be able to come in to look touch and feel the devices and try the numerous applications, then and there.

The BlackBerry Centre Scotland hosts all the devices and caters for business users and consumers. In addition the people behind the Scancom BlackBerry Centre have a professional background and so one of the other strengths this project has is the ability to cater for the SME professional market.
