There were Apple Geniuses and then there were the BlackBerry Buddies. Research In Motion has begun setting up BlackBerry Buddy kiosks around major malls in South Africa. These kiosks will help with BlackBerry support, give advice, and even update software. No more having to deal with clueless people at cellular provider’s stores.

The BlackBerry Buddies are there to show users how to use their devices more efficiently, help them set up shortcuts, download apps, set up email accounts, and download the latest updates. You can find the BlackBerry Buddy kiosks at these locations:

  • Sandton City – Johannesburg
  • Menlyn Park – Pretoria
  • Mimosa Mall – Bloemfontein
  • Canal Walk – Cape Town
  • Gateway Shopping Centre – Durban

Setting up the BlackBerry Buddy kiosks in South Africa was certainly a wise decision. Perhaps we’ll start to see more BlackBerry Buddy kiosks pop-up around the world. Would you like a BlackBerry Buddy kiosk at your mall?
