TDC Mobile and Research In Motion today announced the introduction of BlackBerryÂ® to Danish mobile professionals for the first time. TDC Mobile is launching the new service with the BlackBerry 7290 Wireless Handheld(TM). The BlackBerry 7290(TM) combines e-mail, phone, text messaging, organizer, web and corporate data applications in a single handheld. The BlackBerry 7290 delivers an exceptional voice experience with quad-band support (operating on the GSM/GPRS 850/900/1800/1900 MHz frequencies) enabling domestic and international roaming, and also features BluetoothÂ® support for use with wireless headsets and car kits. In addition, the BlackBerry 7290 features 32 MB flash memory and 4 SRAM, a bright LED backlight, as well as an optimized QWERTY keyboard for easy dialing and typing.
“TDC Mobile is committed to providing its customers with the best mobile solutions on the market and BlackBerry is the leading wireless solution for mobile customers who want to stay connected and productive while on the go. We are pleased to bring the BlackBerry 7290 to our customers, providing them with an advanced wireless solution for their communication and information needs,” said Peter Ibsen, Senior Vice President, TDC Mobile.
BlackBerry enables always-on synchronization with email and other corporate data applications. This means that the user is not required to do anything in order to pick up new email – BlackBerry “pushes” information to the device automatically.
“BlackBerry is already an international success story with over three million subscribers around the world. We are very pleased to be working with TDC Mobile to extend the reach of BlackBerry into the Danish market and help mobile professionals enhance their communications and productivity,” said Mark Guibert, Vice President, Corporate Marketing, Research In Motion.
Customers traveling abroad will also benefit greatly from BlackBerry as TDC Mobile has concluded more roaming agreements with international operators than any other company in Denmark. At the moment, TDC Mobile’s customers will be able to use BlackBerry with 86 operators in 44 countries.(a)
For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server(TM) software tightly integrates with MicrosoftÂ® Exchange, IBM LotusÂ® Domino(TM) and Novell GroupWiseÂ® and works with existing enterprise systems to enable secure, push-based wireless access to email and other corporate data.
