mobilkom austria and Research In Motion today announced the availability of BlackBerry Connect for the Nokia 9300 Smartphone and the Sony Ericsson P910i for the first time in Austria. BlackBerry Connect enables users of the Nokia 9300 and Sony Ericsson P910i to connect to popular BlackBerry services operating on the mobilkom austria network.
“By combining state-of-the-art devices such as the Nokia 9300 and Sony Ericsson P910i with BlackBerry functionality, mobilkom austria is expanding upon its BlackBerry portfolio, providing mobile professionals in Austria with additional choice in how they experience BlackBerry services,” says Dr. Hannes Ametsreiter, Director of Marketing, Distribution and Customer Services, mobilkom austria. “Now, mobilkom austria customers can have their emails automatically pushed to their Nokia 9300 and Sony Ericsson P910i through BlackBerry and can work on them anytime, anywhere.”
Supported features include push-based wireless email access, wireless email reconciliation and attachment viewing through BlackBerry Enterprise Server(TM) and BlackBerry Internet Service(TM). Additional features supported by BlackBerry Enterprise Server include wireless calendar reconciliation, remote address lookup, IT commands and policy enforcement and security with Triple DES encryption.
“With over 3 million BlackBerry subscribers, BlackBerry services continue to grow in popularity. We are very pleased to work with mobilkom austria to now offer push-based BlackBerry services for a broader range of mobile devices,” said Mark Guibert, Vice President, Corporate Marketing at Research In Motion.
By offering BlackBerry services on the Nokia 9300 and Sony Ericsson P910i, mobilkom austria is meeting the needs of mobile professionals – customers that want a sleek and compact mobile device that enables them to remain connected to the people and information important to their day. With BlackBerry Connect, mobile professionals can remain productive, wherever they are.
BlackBerry Connect supports two wireless platforms for different types of users and organizations. For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server(TM) software tightly integrates with Microsoft(R) Exchange and IBM Lotus(R) Domino(TM) to enable secure, push-based wireless access to email and other corporate data. For example, email messages that arrive in an office email account will be automatically pushed to the Nokia 9300 or Sony Ericsson P910i. All email that is sent, received, deleted, filed, forwarded or replied to on the mobile handset will be automatically and wirelessly synchronized with the user’s existing office email account.
BlackBerry Internet Service(TM) allows users to access up to ten corporate and/or personal email accounts (including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and many popular ISP email accounts) from a single device.
