BlackBerry smartphone customers with a BlackBerry Bold 9900, BlackBerry Curve 9360, BlackBerry Curve 9380, BlackBerry Curve 9860, BlackBerry Torch 9810 or a Porsche Design P’9981 smartphone from BlackBerry, can present their device at the RIM stand to be amongst the first in the Middle East to receive an exclusive upgrade directly onto their own BlackBerry 7 device.

BlackBerry 7.1 OS will deliver a next-generation platform for customers to further enhance the mobile experience and make life easier, from managing daily tasks to planning big adventures. With the update comes a host of new features, including:
• Enhanced BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) integration that makes communicating with friends easier than ever before
• BlackBerry Tag to easily invite BBM contacts, exchange information and more using NFC (Near Field Communications)
• Enhanced Universal Search capability with auto-suggest feature and Bing search results

RIM will also be giving away NFC key rings which can be programmed with an individuals’ BlackBerry Messenger PIN or other social media address, which will then enable users to tap the key ring with their BlackBerry smartphone to retain a contact card and share with friends.
