RIM introduces color and GSM tri-band to Blackberry
Research In Motion unveiled two new BlackBerry® Wireless Handhelds™ for mobile professionals. The BlackBerry 7230™ and BlackBerry 6230™ support worldwide international roaming on GSM/GPRS networks and deliver email, phone, SMS, browser and organizer applications.

The BlackBerry 7230 features a crisp, high-resolution color screen and the BlackBerry 6230 incorporates a high-contrast monochrome screen. Both of the new BlackBerry handhelds are compact and lightweight with superior battery performance, making them ideal for mobile use.

The new, Java-based handhelds are available from today in Germany and Austria as part of T-Mobile International's retail launch of BlackBerry. Details on pricing and roaming services are available from T-Mobile International.

Features:
  • Ideal for mobile professionals who want to manage all of their important information and communications from a single, integrated handheld.
  • Send and receive email and SMS messages on the go with the easy-to-use ‘thumb-typing’ keyboard and navigation trackwheel.
  • A wireless extension to existing mailboxes with support for up to 10 corporate and personal email accounts from a single handheld (including: popular Internet Service Provider (ISP), Microsoft? Exchange, and/or IBM Lotus? Domino? email accounts).
  • Push-based wireless architecture means that messages are delivered automatically; there is no need to dial in.
  • Users can also read and forward important email attachments from their BlackBerry handheld (including: Microsoft? Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF).
  • Support for international roaming (on 900/1800/1900 MHz GSM/GPRS networks) enables mobile professionals to use one handheld while travelling with no need to change their phone number or email addresses.
  • Both the screen and keyboard are backlit for easy reading and typing during day or night.
    Handhelds include 16 MB flash memory plus 2 MB SRAM, rechargeable/removable lithium battery and Universal Serial Bus
  • (USB) connectivity for quick battery charging.
  • Pocket-sized, lightweight and ergonomic handheld design, with an embedded RIM wireless modem and internal high performance antenna.

    The BlackBerry 7230 and BlackBerry 6230 are the newest handhelds supported by the multifaceted BlackBerry wireless platform. BlackBerry incorporates the industry's best hardware, software and services together with Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME) and leading GSM/GPRS wireless networks to provide unique, seamless wireless data access for mobile professionals.
