Australian users can now have access to a Blackberry service aimed to personal users, SME (Small-to-medium Enterprises) and the SOHO (Small Office, Home Office) markets. Vodafone Australia and Research In Motion (RIM) are launching the BlackBerry Internet Service in Australia. You can read our Blackberry Internet Service review based on the Vodafone New Zealand service.
The BlackBerry service is popular with enterprise customers in Australia, where only now the Internet Service version is being launched. The BlackBerry service combines wireless e-mail, mobile phone, text messaging, synchronized organizer tools and mobile Internet browsing into one pocket-sized device. The BlackBerry 'push' architecture enables e-mail to be automatically pushed to the mobile device and also allows users to read and forward email attachments (including support for Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Acrobat PDF documents).
RIM and Vodafone has previously announced a new Blackberry device with a different keypad layout, much similar to a mobile phone (pictured). This device will start being deployed from October in Europe, reaching Australian and New Zealand later.
