Vodafone Sweden Introduces BlackBerry Connect

Three mobile phones that support popular BlackBerry services (October 28, 2005)

Vodafone Sweden has extended its 'BlackBerry from  Vodafone' portfolio with the addition of three mobile phones that  support popular BlackBerry services developed by Research In  Motion. Vodafone Sweden's new and  existing business customers that use the Nokia 9500 Communicator,  Nokia 9300 smartphone or Sony Ericsson P910i can now also use  BlackBerry Connect to manage their e-mail while on the go. 

With BlackBerry Connect, customers can benefit from a variety of  proven BlackBerry features in conjunction with BlackBerry Internet  Service(TM) or BlackBerry Enterprise Server(TM), including push-based  connectivity, wireless email synchronization and attachment viewing.  Additional features supported by BlackBerry Enterprise Server include  wireless calendar reconciliation, remote address lookup, IT commands  and policy enforcement and advanced security with Triple DES  encryption. The 'BlackBerry from Vodafone' portfolio for the Swedish  market also currently includes the BlackBerry 7230(TM), BlackBerry  7100v(TM) and BlackBerry 7730(TM) devices. 

"Many Swedish companies have requested BlackBerry services on  mobile phones from Nokia and Sony Ericsson; therefore we are  delighted to present this piece of news. This means that even more  Swedes will discover the advantages of BlackBerry and see for  themselves how wireless e-mail simplifies worklife and makes it more  efficient," said Klas Wallstrom, Head of Business Segment, Vodafone  Sweden. 

"We are pleased to be working with Vodafone to launch BlackBerry  Connect in Sweden," said Mark Guibert, Vice President, Corporate  Marketing at Research In Motion (RIM). "BlackBerry Connect enables  users to choose from a broader range of mobile devices while allowing  IT departments to leverage their existing investments and trust in  the BlackBerry platform and maintain a strict and consistent level of  wireless security." 

For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server software  tightly integrates with Microsoft(R) Exchange and IBM Lotus(R)  Domino(TM). For individuals and smaller businesses, BlackBerry  Internet Service allows users to access up to ten corporate and/or  personal email accounts (including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus  Domino and many popular ISP email accounts) from a single device.
