[Belgium's Proximus begins offering the Blackberry Enterprise Solution(tm) using the BlackBerry 7230.]
Brussels, Belgium & Waterloo, Ontario -- Proximus, Belgium's leading mobile operator and part of the Vodafone group, today announced the launch of 'BlackBerry(R)from Vodafone' with the tri-band BlackBerry 7230(tm) Wireless Handheld, aimed at the corporate business market in Belgium. The BlackBerry 7230 includes a customized user-interface using Vodafone live! iconography which customers will find easy-to-use. BlackBerry from Research In Motion (RIM)is a leading, end-to-end, wireless communications platform for mobile professionals.
BlackBerry from Vodafone is initially being aimed at the corporate business market with the BlackBerry Enterprise Solution(TM). Existing and new Proximus customers can now choose to use BlackBerry alongside their standard mobile phone or alternatively use the BlackBerry handheld as their sole device for both voice and data. The BlackBerry "push" architecture means email is delivered automatically to the handheld device and customers receive emails and appointments automatically without having to dial in. Customers can also read and forward email attachments from their BlackBerry device (including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Adobe pdf and Acrobat).
BlackBerry is an end-to-end solution that supports a high level of information security. BlackBerry Enterprise Server, installed behind the firewall alongside the corporate server, supports advanced encryption as well as wireless integration and synchronization between the user's handheld and their corporate mailbox.
Proximus plans to extend its BlackBerry offering to the SME market over the coming months, reinforcing its Mobile Business Solutions strategy.
