KPN and Research In Motion (RIM) today announced the introduction of the BlackBerry Enterprise Solution(TM) in the Netherlands.
BlackBerry(R) is an industry-leading wireless solution that gives mobile professionals the freedom to stay connected to people and information while on the go. BlackBerry Wireless Handhelds(TM) feature an integrated mobile phone and provide 'always-on' access to corporate email, calendar and organizer applications. Users can now stay in touch easier than ever by phone and email (including support for attachment viewing). Other corporate data applications can also be securely extended to BlackBerry users on the move.
BlackBerry from KPN integrates seamlessly with the corporate network. The unique 'push' technology of BlackBerry delivers email messages and appointments automatically to the handheld. Users do not need to retrieve the messages themselves. BlackBerry Enterprise Server(TM) software supports both Microsoft Exchange and IBM Lotus Domino(TM) (Novell GroupWise support is expected later this year). Thanks to the advanced BlackBerry security architecture with end-to-end encryption, the solution also meets strict IT security requirements.
KPN offers a choice of two BlackBerry Wireless Handhelds - the BlackBerry 7230(TM) and the BlackBerry 7730(TM). Both handhelds combine the capabilities of wireless email, data and phone in one powerful and convenient device. Each BlackBerry handheld also features a clear, high-resolution color screen, an integrated 'QWERTY' keyboard and an easy-to-use navigation trackwheel on the side of the device. The handhelds are tri-band (900/1800/1900 MHz) to support international roaming. The BlackBerry 7730 features a larger screen, while the BlackBerry 7230 offers a more compact design.
