Munich -- Siemens mobile, the mobile arm of Siemens AG, and Research In Motion (RIM) today announced plans to enable BlackBerry connectivity on Siemens mobile phones. Siemens and RIM will work together to provide integrated data connectivity capabilities on Siemens mobile phones using BlackBerry email, calendar and browser applications. Siemens plans to introduce a BlackBerry-enabled handset based on its own 65 platform for mobile phones in the fourth quarter of 2004.
RIM's BlackBerry Connect(tm) licensing program will help Siemens enable its wireless phones to connect to email and corporate data applications via BlackBerry Enterprise Server(tm) using the same secure, push-based wireless architecture and infrastructure that currently supports thousands of companies and government organizations around the world. The companies also intend to work together to enable Siemens mobile phones to connect to BlackBerry Web Client services for individuals and smaller businesses.
Siemens plans to introduce a BlackBerry-enabled handset based on its 65 platform for mobile phones in the fourth quarter of 2004. The 65 platform is Siemens' latest platform for mobile phones.
