RIM Blackeberry coming to SingTel and Optus
SingTel and Research In Motion are planning to offer the BlackBerry in Asia and Australia. BlackBerry will provide integrated access to email, data and phone applications via a color wireless handheld to customers of SingTel and its wholly-owned subsidiary in Australia, Optus, as well as SingTel's mobile associate in the Philippines, Globe Telecom.

"BlackBerry's integrated access to Microsoft Exchange and IBM Lotus Domino environments, together with SingTel's international roaming capabilities, make it an ideal solution for our corporate customers on the move," said Mr Thomas Yeo, SingTel's Vice President for Corporate Business Marketing. "With BlackBerry, we can further extend our existing portfolio of mobile office solutions, and expand the breadth of high quality and seamless service of wireless email to a wider market."

For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server software tightly integrates with Microsoft Exchange or IBM Lotus Domino and works with existing enterprise systems to enable push-based wireless access to email and other corporate data.

SingTell will initially offer the BlackBerry 7730 and BlackBerry 7230 handhelds. Both have colour screens. The BlackBerry 7730 features a larger screen, while the BlackBerry 7230 incorporates a smaller screen with a more compact design.

The BlackBerry 7730 and BlackBerry 7230 include:

  • Support for international roaming on 900/1800/1900 MHz GSM/GPRS networks
  • Wireless integration with existing email accounts including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and/or popular ISP email accounts.
  • A push-based wireless architecture that delivers messages automatically.
  • Cradle-free wireless email synchronization.
  • Integrated email attachment viewing that enables users to read important email attachments from their BlackBerry handheld (including: Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, WordPerfect and ASCII documents).
  • 'Thumb-typing' keyboard and navigation trackwheel for sending and receiving email and SMS messages on the go.
  • 16 MB flash memory plus 2 MB SRAM, rechargeable/removable lithium battery and Universal Serial Bus (USB) connectivity for quick battery charging.

    Prices were not disclosed yet. A competitor, Telstra Australia, is already offering a Blackberry service in Australia.
