BASE, Belgium's third mobile operator, and Research In Motion (RIM) announced today that the BlackBerry Enterprise Solution(TM) is available to BASE's corporate customers in Belgium.
BASE offers a choice of three BlackBerry handhelds, the BlackBerry 7230(TM), the BlackBerry 7730(TM), and, in December 2004, the BlackBerry 7290(TM). Each handheld combines the capabilities of phone and wireless data communications in one compact device. The features of the BlackBerry handhelds include a high resolution color screen, an integrated 'qwerty' or 'azerty' keyboard and a trackwheel on the side of the device for easy navigation and use. The BlackBerry 7230 and BlackBerry 7730 handhelds are tri-band (900/1800/1900 MHz), and the BlackBerry 7290 is quad-band (800/900/1800/1900 MHz) so that users can make phone calls practically anywhere in the world. The screen of the BlackBerry 7730 is larger to allow for enhanced data viewing capabilities while the BlackBerry 7230 and BlackBerry 7290 are more compact handhelds. The BlackBerry 7290 introduces a number of enhanced features to the BlackBerry 7200 Series, including Bluetooth(r) support, 32 MB memory and an enhanced backlight.
