Toronto and Waterloo, ON -- Rogers Wireless and Research In Motion (RIM) today introduced the new BlackBerry 7290 Wireless Handheld(TM) in Canada. The Java(TM)-based BlackBerry 7290 builds upon the proven BlackBerry experience with new features including a quad-band phone, Bluetooth support, a brighter colour screen and increased memory and extended battery life. Expected to be available before the end of the month, the BlackBerry 7290 operates on the nationwide Rogers Wireless GSM/GPRS network with extensive support for international roaming.

The BlackBerry 7290 combines e-mail, phone, SMS, organizer, web and corporate data applications in a single handheld. The BlackBerry 7290 delivers an quad-band support, operating on the GSM/GPRS 850/900/1800/1900 MHz frequencies, enabling domestic and international roaming, and also features Bluetooth support for headsets and car kits. In addition, the BlackBerry 7290 features 32 MB flash memory and 4 SRAM, a brighter LED backlight, as well as an updated QWERTY keyboard style with highlighted number keys for easy dialing and typing.

The high-resolution screen display supports more than 65,000 colours. The BlackBerry 7290 also features cradle-free wireless e-mail synchronization, integrated attachment viewing (including support for popular file formats such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, WordPerfect, PDF and ASCII) and remote address look up in addition to secure, push-based wireless connectivity.

For business customers hosting their own e-mail, BlackBerry Enterprise Server software tightly integrates with Microsoft(R) Exchange or IBM Lotus(R) Domino(TM) and works with existing enterprise systems to enable secure, push-based, wireless access to e-mail and other corporate data. BlackBerry Enterprise Server also includes a feature called Mobile Data Service that is uniquely designed to provide Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and in-house corporate developers with an environment that supports additional corporate data access and interaction capabilities beyond e-mail. With BlackBerry Mobile Data Service, customers can leverage their existing, approved BlackBerry architecture and security model to deploy reliable, secure, end-to-end applications without any additional infrastructure to learn or support.

For businesses that have hosted e-mail, BlackBerry Internet Service allows users to access up to 10 existing e-mail accounts from a single device and without the need for server software. Rogers Wireless' new and enhanced html Internet browsing offering is now available to BlackBerry Internet Service customers.
