BlackBerry smartphones debut in Bangladesh

Dhaka, Bangladesh - Grameenphone Ltd. and Research In Motion (RIM) today announced the launch of the BlackBerry® wireless solution in Bangladesh. The BlackBerry solution will be provided through Grameenphone’s Business Solutions, which is focused on meeting the special needs of businesses. 

Available for the first time in Bangladesh, BlackBerry smartphones will provide Grameenphone's customers with access to a wide range of mobile applications, including email, browsing, messaging, phone, organizer, multimedia and a wide range of other business and lifestyle applications. 

Anders Jensen, CEO at Grameenphone said: “The BlackBerry platform is the gold standard in mobility for business users around the world. We are proud to be the first mobile operator launching the BlackBerry platform in Bangladesh, bringing in the next level of global connectivity for businesses.” 

Norm Lo, Vice President of Asia Pacific at Research In Motion said, “The BlackBerry platform, together with Grameenphone’s network, will offer an innovative and powerful mobile solution that enables users to be more productive, flexible and successful in both work and life.” 

Grameenphone will initially offer the BlackBerry® 8700g and the BlackBerry® Pearl™ smartphones in conjunction with BlackBerry® Enterprise Server and BlackBerry® Internet Service. The BlackBerry 8700g and the BlackBerry Pearl will operate on Grameenphone’s EDGE/GPRS enabled GSM network. 

The BlackBerry 8700g comes with a full QWERTY keyboard and delivers fast performance for wireless email (with support for attachment viewing), web browsing and other mobile applications. It features a bright, high resolution LCD display that delivers vivid graphics and incorporates an intelligent light-sensing technology that automatically adjusts the screen and keyboard lighting to provide optimal lighting for indoor, outdoor, and dark environments. The BlackBerry 8700g also supports messaging (SMS and MMS), instant messaging and comes with premium phone features such as smart dialing, conference calling, speed dialing, call forwarding, speakerphone and Bluetooth® support for hands-free use with car kits and wireless headsets. 

The BlackBerry Pearl smartphone is packed with powerful communication and multimedia capabilities and yet it is incredibly sleek and stylish. The BlackBerry Pearl incorporates RIM's innovative SureType® keyboard technology, which merges a phone keypad with a familiar QWERTY keyboard to enable a narrower design while allowing users to type messages and dial phone numbers quickly and accurately. It also features a 1.3 mega-pixel camera with built-in flash and 5x digital zoom, a media player, expandable memory slot and a trackball navigation system. 

For corporate customers who use software such as MS Exchange Server, the BlackBerry Enterprise Service will best suit their needs, as the software tightly integrates with IBM Lotus® Domino®, Microsoft® Exchange and Novell® GroupWise® environments and features IT policy controls for managing smartphone features and usage. Individuals and smaller businesses can use the BlackBerry Internet Service that allows users to manage up to ten supported corporate and personal email accounts, including most popular ISP email accounts, from a single device 

The BlackBerry 8700g and the BlackBerry Pearl smartphones will be available from Grameenphone in January 2008.
