Singapore's StarHub signs deal with Research In Motion
StarHub and Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM; TSX: RIM) announced an agreement to provide the BlackBerry (TM)?wireless data and voice platform to corporate customers in Singapore. StarHub will be the first network operator in Singapore to deliver this award-winning wireless technology platform to its corporate customers.

The BlackBerry wireless platform will allow StarHub's corporate users to manage their important communications and Personal Information Management (PIM) tools through the use of a BlackBerry Wireless Handheld (TM)?with integrated email, phone, SMS (Short Message Service), web browser and organizer applications. The BlackBerry handheld will operate on StarHub's GSM/GPRS network.

The highly secure mobile email and data solution supports Microsoft (R)?Exchange and IBM Lotus (R)?Domino (TM)?environments allowing integration with the user's existing email address and mailbox. Emails and calendar appointments are "pushed" directly to and from the industry-proven handheld. The handheld features a patented, built-in keyboard that makes it extremely easy to type using two thumbs. The "always-on" data and email connectivity is provided via StarHub's GSM/GPRS network.

"StarHub is pleased to be the first operator in Singapore to offer this wireless solution. We are committed to offering secure, innovative, easy-to-use wireless solutions to our customers," said Mr Chan Kin Hung, Senior Vice President, StarHub Mobile. "In the last year or so, we have partnered with big industry names to provide innovative and proven corporate solutions for our business customers. Now, we have done it again by offering another innovative and proven solution by RIM!"

"BlackBerry is the first wireless solution that integrates data and voice services while properly addressing the needs of both end users and IT departments. It is widely adopted by U.S. Fortune 500 companies, government organizations and banks. We believe the solution will be well received by our customers as it provides always-on, secure and integrated access to data and voice services on our high-speed GSM/GPRS network," added Mr Chan.
