Nexcom Introduces The First Store In The United States To Exclusively Sell BlackBerry Products, Nextel Wireless Data Services And Training

Charlotte, N.C. - Nexcom Wireless announces the opening of the country’s first exclusively BlackBerry® store in Charlotte, North Carolina. This unique store will feature the BlackBerry Wireless Handheld™ from Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM), BlackBerry Enterprise Server™ and BlackBerry services and Nextel Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTL) voice and data solutions. Opening Tuesday, April 26, the Nexcom store is located in the Atrium of South Tryon Square at the corner of 4th Street and North Tryon Street in downtown Charlotte.

“We’re excited to be opening the first store in the USA to exclusively sell BlackBerry right here in Charlotte”, said Chad Jenkins President of Nexcom Wireless. The Nexcom Store will feature BlackBerry from Nextel with the latest models, software, service and accessories to support customers. The store will also offer complete training on the operation of BlackBerry devices and services. “BlackBerry is a powerful communications tool, that gives users a competitive advantage,” added Jenkins. “To unlock its full potential many people want some training. That’s exactly what we’ll offer at Nexcom Wireless – Your BlackBerry Headquarters.”

BlackBerry from Nextel provides a mobile office experience, enabling phone, Direct Connect®, email, Internet, organizer and corporate application access via a single integrated device. It operates on Nextel's guaranteed all-digital network to provide mobile professionals the freedom to access information and communicate while away from the office.

“This unique partnership between Nextel, RIM and Nexcom will be of great value to BlackBerry customers,” said Craven Shumaker, area vice president, Nextel Communications. “By providing hands-on training and practical demonstrations, Nexcom Wireless will help to enhance customers’ understanding of the multiple business solutions possible with BlackBerry.”

“The Nexcom Store represents a great opportunity for individuals and businesses that want more information and in-depth training on the BlackBerry platform,” said Mark Guibert, Vice President, Corporate Marketing at Research In Motion. “We are pleased to be working with Nextel and Nexcom to offer Charlotte customers a unique customer service experience.”

For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server™ software tightly integrates with Microsoft® Exchange, IBM Lotus® Domino™ and Novell® GroupWise® and works with existing enterprise systems to enable secure, push-based, wireless access to email and other corporate data.

For individuals and smaller businesses, BlackBerry Internet Service™ allows users to access up to ten corporate and/or personal email accounts (including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and many popular ISP email accounts) from a single device.

Nexcom has two additional locations in the Charlotte market: one in Pineville at 601 North Polk St and one in Ft. Mill at 8763 Charlotte Highway. Visit the Nexcom website at www.nexcomwireless.com

no one told you to open up this thread and leave the harassing comments. i think a PM to a mod is in order here.

to quote the NASF forum rules:

*No posting intentionally inciteful commentary... Personal attacks, Trolling, Flaming, overt negativity, baiting, etc. This rule is especially applicative of forumers who hijack or troll a thread/local forum, basically just to bash the topic or participants of the thread/local forum.

It's funny to see you *try* to act mature, Style. After all of the things that you've done in the past, its very funny.


Maybe I should make a thread about where the first Dollar General Store was located...but anyways, It is a good thing for a downtown area to have a technology store, and to be the first to recieve it. Maybe the Blackberry will be its own little version of the ipod; popularity-wise.

Kyle , you're 16, and in school. Need I mention everything that you've done to show you are not mature? I am 16 as well, and James is basically the same age. And why does location have anything to do with it? I can easily move anywhere in the country, so that's absoloutely irrelavant.

I’ll ignore all the silly comments above. Honestly, I wouldn’t expect someone who lives in a “Podunk” town to know what a BlackBerry is, let alone be aware of their huge popularity. After all, they’re still trying to figure out why we have “horseless carriages and flying machines” here in the big city.

At any rate, I think this is very significant for Charlotte. Not just because we’re “first” to get a BlackBerry store, but also because you’re starting to see much needed development on South Tryon Street. Looks like all the office renovations on that end of Tryon are starting to pay off.

First of all, I knew what a blackberry was. Not only that, but you posted images of it, so even if one didn't know what it was, the image would pretty much give it away. Second of all, if they are so popular, why would you think I didn't know what it was? :|
