Cingular Wireless and Research In Motion (RIM) are introducing the BlackBerry 7290 Wireless Handheld. It is Cingular's first quad-band, Bluetooth enabled product offering designed especially for business customers who want to stay connected while traveling internationally.

The Java-based BlackBerry 7290, currently exclusive to Cingular within the United States, combines phone, e-mail, Short Messaging Services (SMS), organizer, Web browsing and corporate data access capabilities in a single handheld. The Blackberry 7290 operates on the GSM/GPRS 850/900/1800/1900 MHz frequencies, which enables both domestic and international roaming.

The BlackBerry 7290 features all the elements of existing BlackBerry 7200 series handhelds, including a compact, ergonomic handheld design, high-resolution color screen that supports over 65,000 colours, QWERTY keyboard, thumb-operated navigation trackwheel. This new versions comes with 32 MB of flash memory and 4 MB of SRAM, allowing for more storage capabilities. The device also supports cradle-free wireless e-mail synchronization, integrated attachment viewing (including support for popular file formats such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, WordPerfect, PDF and ASCII) and remote address look up in addition to secure, push-based wireless connectivity.

The 7290 also features Bluetooth, which enables customers to take advantage of wireless headsets and car kits. Cingular is currently offering three Bluetooth-enabled headsets that are compatible with the BlackBerry 7290.

The BlackBerry 7290 is expected to be commercially available from Cingular in early October. It will be priced on a promotional basis at US$149 with a two-year service agreement and packaged with a free wireless headset.
