KPN will bring RIM BlackBerry to The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium
KPN and Research In Motion (RIM) announced plans to offer the BlackBerry wireless solution to KPN's corporate customers and individual users in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. KPN intends to begin pilot trials in the Netherlands in the spring timeframe, with commercial availability expected to follow in summer 2004.

Operating on KPN's GSM/GPRS network, BlackBerry will provide mobile professionals with integrated access to email, phone, browser, organizer and other applications via an advanced wireless handheld. KPN expects to offer its customers a range of BlackBerry Wireless Handhelds to suit different voice and data needs.

"KPN already provides mobile data solutions together with selected business partners," said Mark de Jong, Vice President, Corporate Development of KPN Mobile. "The cooperation with RIM for BlackBerry is a logical addition to the partner program. Customer demand for mobile data solutions is growing every day, particularly the need to access email anytime and everywhere. BlackBerry's ease-of-use combined with the outstanding outdoor and indoor coverage of KPN's GSM/GPRS network provides excellent benefits for our business customers. For corporate customers in particular, we see a need for a proven, complete solution combined with excellent quality of service."

"BlackBerry is already being used by over one million subscribers and its popularity continues to expand around the world," said Mark Guibert, Vice President, Corporate Marketing at Research In Motion. "Our relationship with KPN will provide customers with a powerful wireless solution that leverages the push-based data capabilities of BlackBerry and KPN's robust GSM/GPRS network."

The BlackBerry platform supports wireless access to a wide range of information and communications. With "always-on" connectivity and push-based technology that automatically delivers email and corporate data to and from a handheld, BlackBerry provides effortless access to information while on the move. Customers can read and forward email attachments from their BlackBerry handheld (including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Adobe PDF documents). Corporate customers also have wireless access to their calendar and corporate address books.
