Syndney, Australia and Waterloo, Ontario -- Vodafone and Research In Motion today announced plans to offer the BlackBerry wireless solution to mobile professionals in Australia. Operating on Vodafone's GSM/GPRS network, BlackBerry will provide integrated access to email, data and phone applications, allowing mobile professionals to stay connected to information and communications while on the go.

BlackBerry is an award-winning wireless platform that provides access to email, phone, SMS, Internet and organizer applications via a sleek and compact handheld. For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server(TM) software tightly integrates with Microsoft Exchange or IBM Lotus Domino(TM) and works with existing enterprise systems to enable secure, push-based, wireless access to email and other corporate data. For individuals, BlackBerry Web Client(TM) is an Internet-based email interface that allows users to access multiple existing corporate and/or personal email accounts (including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and popular ISP email accounts) from a single BlackBerry handheld.

The BlackBerry 7230 Wireless Handheld(TM) is designed to provide the best mobile user experience with integrated support for phone, email, SMS, organizer, web and corporate data applications. The BlackBerry 7230(TM) features high-resolution color screens while maintaining superior battery life, which is critical for mobile use.

Key features of the BlackBerry 7230 include:

* Support for international roaming(i) (on 900/1800/1900 MHz GSM/GPRS networks) that enable mobile professionals to use their handheld while travelling without need to change their phone number or email address.

* Wireless integration with existing email accounts including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and/or popular ISP email accounts.

* A push-based wireless architecture that delivers messages automatically.

* Cradle-free wireless email synchronization.

* Integrated email attachment viewing that enables users to read important email attachments from their BlackBerry handheld (including: Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, WordPerfect and ASCII documents).

* An easy-to-use 'thumb-typing' keyboard and navigation trackwheel for sending and receiving email and SMS messages on the go.

* A high-resolution color screen that supports over 65,000 colors while maintaining superior battery life.

* Backlit screen and keyboard for easy reading and typing during day or night.

* 16 MB flash memory plus 2 MB SRAM, rechargeable/removable lithium battery and Universal Serial Bus (USB) connectivity for quick battery charging.
