For corporate clients, BlackBerry Enterprise Server(R) software tightly integrates with Microsoft Exchange or IBM Lotus Domino and works with existing enterprise systems to allow secure, push-based, wireless access to e-mail and other corporate data.
For individuals and smaller businesses, BlackBerry Internet Service(tm) allows users to access up to ten corporate and/or personal e-mail accounts (including Microsoft(R) Exchange, IBM Lotus(R) Domino, and many popular ISP e-mail accounts) from a single device without the need for server software.
The BlackBerry 7250 is available to TELUS Mobility clients for as low as $399 on a 3-year contract or $549 with no contract.
For clients who depend on Push To Talk, or PTT, capability for instant communication, TELUS Mobility also offers the BlackBerry 7510-powered by Mike(R). The device features Mike's Direct Connect(R), a powerful PTT feature that allows users to stay in touch at the push of a button, right across North America.
