Sony Ericsson M600i

Indosat, Sony Ericsson and RIM jointly announced today the availability of BlackBerry Connect on Sony Ericsson’s latest M600i mobile phone in Indonesia. BlackBerry Connect provides Indonesian Indosat customers with “push” based email, BIS and BES support, such as email reconciliation and calendar synchronization.

“We are working with Sony Ericsson and RIM to provide customers with a broader choice of handsets that can leverage the unique strengths and reliability of the proven BlackBerry platform,” said Wahyu Wijayadi, Marketing Director of Indosat. “With the successful launch of BlackBerry Connect on the P910 last year, we are confident that the new Sony Ericsson M600i with BlackBerry Connect will be well-received in the market.”

The M600i is Sony Ericsson’s first Symbian OS 9.1 handset, and at 15mm thick, is one of the slimmest business 3G devices.
