As I was looking through the morning BlackBerry news, I noticed that Sure Mobile, a division of UK based Cable and Wireless, launched a pay-as-you-go BlackBerry plan. I don’t have all the details yet but it did get me to thinking about a pay-as-you-go BlackBerry plan over here in the United States.
Would it fly over here? On one hand it could be cost prohibitive. On the other, some of the MVNOs like Helio are already offering unlimited plans for under $100 I and I am sure someone could make a BIS only plan with unlimited data work in $100 per month range.
The big question is would there be enough of a market for it? I am guessing that if RIM continues to put out really cool devices like the BlackBerry Curve and BlackBerry Pearl and an MVNO opens it up to all the media that those types of services usually offer, it just might.
