Suggestion​:BB10 should support BDS (BeiDou navigation System)

Z10 is a business phone, so it needs support from big companies and governments. BeiDou navigation System(BDS) is just setup by Chinese government, they eager to push it into the market. BUT, what they want is reliable smart phone or mobile terminal for millions of end users. If BB support it , Chinese government will be very happy to adopt BB10 and give you a huge support.


This is a huge opportunity for BB to take CN market.

Re: Suggestion​:BB10 should support BDS (BeiDou navigation System)

Hello jobscc,

which smartphones are currently supporting the BeiDou Navigation System?

After looking fast on the internet, BDS is a competitor to the American GPS and the (future) European Galileo, and a BDS device cost more than 300USD (just the BDS with no service).

so if the Chinese government want the technology to emerge, they will have to convince manufacturers to do so... starting with mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong manufacturers before reaching a Canadian company like BlackBerry...
