BlackBerry 10 gives customers a faster and smarter experience that continuously adapts to their needs. Every feature, every gesture, and every detail is designed to keep customers moving and includes advancements such as: -- Peek and Flow into the BlackBerry Hub - A new mobile computing paradigm where what matters to customers is always only one swipe away -- Keyboard - Understands and adapts to customers, so they can type faster and more accurately -- BBMâ ¢ (BlackBerryÂR Messenger) - Allows customers to share things with the people that matter to them in an instant -- BlackBerryÂR Balanceâ ¢ technology - Protects what is important to customers and the businesses they work for About Koodo Mobile Koodo Mobile is the smart and affordable Canadian mobile alternative. Launched in 2008, Koodo led a mobility revolution across Canada, with a simple and transparent approach to cellular service including monthly plans that are easy to understand and affordable. Koodo also introduced the world to the revolutionary Tab. Often imitated but never duplicated, the Tab is an alternative to fixed-term contracts that allows customers to put up to $150 of a phone's price on their Tab. Ten per cent of each monthly bill is then credited to the Tab, and existing customers who have paid off their Tab may be eligible to receive any Koodo phone at no additional cost.

In another industry-leading move, Koodo has given long distance the boot with their Canada-wide plans. No more long distance and roaming charges for calls to and from anywhere in Canada. With Koodo, data automatically adjusts to customer's monthly usage which means customers only pay for the data they use.

This innovative approach to affordable mobility has helped Koodo win multiple awards, including being named the 2010 Strategy Brand of the Year - the youngest brand to win this title - and having the 2010 Koodo Sugar Streak campaign be the first ever Canadian campaign selected for Google's 2010 Annual Global Creative Canvas. Most recently Koodo was ranked highest in customer satisfaction among stand alone cell phone carriers in the J.D Power and Associates 2012 Canadian Wireless Total Ownership Experience StudyTM and was also named Canada's number one most recommended mobile phone company.
