More than 250 local software applications have been created by Nigerian software developers on the newly launched BlackBerry 10 platform.

The Managing Director, West, East and Central Africa, Blackberry, Mr Waldi Wepener, disclosed this during the official launch of the company's next-generation mobile device platform to Nigerian customers.

Wepener said Blackberry has partnered with a number of Nigerian application developers to ensure a wide selection of top Nigerian brands and mobile apps, which are now available on the all-new Blackberry Z10 smartphone, powered by Blackberry 10.

He said the Blackberry 10 platform is robust and reliable, with an intuitive, gesture-based interface that is designed to learn, support and adapt to the way that the user works, thus providing a truly-unique user experience.

He also said the recently-launched Blackberry Z10 utilises this platform to deliver a faster, smarter experience that enables the user to keep moving in an ever-changing environment. To support these adaptive features, Blackberry has partnered with Nigerian developers to build a range of applications specifically for the Nigerian user.

"We are proud to see Nigeria's innovative developer community get behind the Blackberry 10 platform, with more than 250 local apps now available and many more coming.

"Having locally-relevant and available content ensures delivery of a completely unique user experience while also enriching the Nigerian developer ecosystem on Blackberry 10 platform. We are committed to continuing to work closely with the Nigerian developer community to further enhance the local content available across our products," he said.
