Verizon Wireless and RIM demonstrate the BlackBerry 6750 at CTIA Wireless 2003
Verizon Wireless and Research In Motion (RIM) demonstrated the new data and voice-enabled BlackBerry 6750 handheld optimized for the Verizon Wireless high-speed Express Network (CDMA) at CTIA Wireless 2003 in New Orleans. The BlackBerry 6750 is expected to be available from Verizon Wireless in the second quarter of this year.

Featuring leading enterprise connectivity with secure, integrated wireless email and data access, the BlackBerry 6750 also incorporates a dual band phone, text messaging, browser and personal organizer.

Verizon Wireless' Express Network is a U.S. national high-speed wireless network, with average user speeds between 40-60 kilobits per second (kbps) and bursts of up to 144 kbps - similar to, or faster than using a dial-up PC connection.

"The BlackBerry 6750 supports our enterprise strategy to give mobile professionals a convenient way to access email and other applications when they're away from the office," said Cindy Patterson, Vice President of Enterprise Data Sales for Verizon Wireless. "Our Express Network, with its broad nationwide reach and reliability, is a great fit for the BlackBerry wireless platform."

"The BlackBerry 6750 is the first BlackBerry handheld to support CDMA 1X wireless networks," said Mark Guibert, Vice President, Brand Management at Research In Motion. "RIM is pleased to be working with Verizon Wireless, the largest provider of wireless communications in the United States."

Features of the BlackBerry 6750 include:

  • Integrated wireless data and voice services including email, dual band phone, text messaging, browser and organizer on a single handheld;
  • Secure, push-based wireless access to corporate email and enterprise applications;
  • Dual band phone with integrated speaker/microphone and headset jack;
  • Two-way text messaging enables users to easily send and receive short text messages;
  • BlackBerry browser supports standard WML, HTML and XML based content and HTTP/HTTPS connectivity to BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
