RIM Blackberry via Vodafone Australia
Vodafone and Research In Motion (RIM) announced their plans to offer the BlackBerry to mobile professionals in Australia. Operating on Vodafone's GSM/GPRS network, BlackBerry will provide integrated access to email, data and phone applications, allowing mobile professionals to stay connected to information and communications while on the go.

"BlackBerry strongly fits with our commitment to deliver leading-edge wireless services that provide the freedom and flexibility to communicate and access information while mobile," said Chantal Walker, General Manager, Business Markets, Vodafone Australia. "With our extensive network coverage in Australia and the growing demand for always-on information access, we are confident the BlackBerry wireless solution will be popular among our customers."

"BlackBerry is growing in popularity throughout Australia and the rest of the world because of its unique 'push' technology and application integration," said Patrick Spence, Vice President, Asia Pacific Business Unit, Research In Motion. "We are pleased to expand our relationship to include Vodafone Australia."

BlackBerry is a wireless platform that provides access to email, phone, SMS, Internet and organizer applications via a compact handheld. For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server software integrates with Microsoft Exchange or IBM Lotus Domino and works with existing enterprise systems to enable secure, push-based, wireless access to email and other corporate data. For individuals, BlackBerry Web Client is an Internet-based email interface that allows users to access multiple existing corporate and/or personal email accounts (including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and popular ISP email accounts) from a single BlackBerry handheld.

The BlackBerry 7230 features high-resolution color screens and includes support for e-mail, web access, SMS and voice calls.

Vodafone says the key features of the 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).
  • An easy-to-use 'thumb-typing' keyboard and navigation trackwheel for sending and receiving email and SMS messages on the go.
  • A high-resolution color screen that supports over 65,000 colors while maintaining superior battery life.
  • Backlit screen and keyboard for easy reading and typing during day or night.
  • 16 MB flash memory plus 2 MB SRAM, rechargeable/removable lithium battery and Universal Serial Bus (USB) connectivity for quick battery charging.

    The BlackBerry 7230 is expected to be available from Vodafone Australia on June 1st, 2004.
