Vodafone is now extending its 'BlackBerry from Vodafone' portfolio with the addition of three mobile phones that support popular BlackBerry services developed by Research In Motion (RIM).
Vodafone Sweden's business customers that today 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. Vodafone Sweden is also launching a new BlackBerry offering designed for small businesses that have their own e-mail servers.
Vodafone is the only operator in Sweden to provide its customers with the successful BlackBerry, which now supports more than three million users worldwide. With BlackBerry Connect, customers can benefit from a variety of features in conjunction with BlackBerry Internet Service or BlackBerry Enterprise Server, 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 7290, BlackBerry 7100v and BlackBerry 7730 devices.
'BlackBerry from Vodafone' is available at a flat monthly rate in which users can send and receive an unlimited number of e-mails via their BlackBerry-enabled mobile device.
New server solution for small businesses with their own e-mail servers Vodafone Sweden's range already includes BlackBerry Enterprise Server for larger companies that have their own e-mail servers and a hosted service -- BlackBerry Internet Service -- for companies without their own e-mail servers.
Vodafone Sweden is now also launching BlackBerry Enterprise Server Small/Medium Business Edition for smaller companies (up to 15 users) that use Microsoft Exchange. This allows smaller companies to enjoy all the advantages of BlackBerry Enterprise Server, including support for wireless email and calendar synchronization, IT policies and Triple DES encryption.
