BlackBerry signs up more than one millionth subscribers
The BlackBerry wireless platform surpassed another major milestone with more than one million active subscribers.

BlackBerry was originally introduced in 1999 and quickly became the wireless email standard for many enterprise and government organizations. Since that time, the BlackBerry platform has evolved to also meet the needs of small/medium businesses as well as individual mobile professionals. Today, with BlackBerry coverage on fifty networks in over thirty countries, BlackBerry supports a wide range of email, phone, SMS, organizer, intranet and Internet-based applications.

"This is an important threshold for BlackBerry and even a positive industry indicator since BlackBerry is now the first integrated wireless data platform to reach the one million subscriber mark," said Mike Lazaridis, President, Co-CEO and Founder of Research In Motion. "We look forward to building on this early success along with our carrier, developer and licensing partners around the world."

For individuals and smaller companies, BlackBerry Web Client allows users to access multiple corporate and/or personal email accounts from a single BlackBerry handheld. For larger enterprises with an IT department, BlackBerry Enterprise Server software tightly integrates with Microsoft Exchange or IBM Lotus Domino and works with existing enterprise systems to enable push-based, secure, wireless access to existing email and other corporate data. RIM also introduced the BlackBerry Connect licensing program last year to begin allowing other wireless device manufacturers to connect their handsets to BlackBerry Enterprise Server and BlackBerry Web Client services. BlackBerry Connect supports Palm OS, Symbian OS and Windows Mobile Pocket PC. Handset partners currently include HTC, Nokia, Samsung and Sony Ericsson.
