T-Mobile UK and Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM)(TSX:RIM) today announced an expansion of T-Mobile's portfolio of BlackBerry(R) devices with the introduction of the new BlackBerry 8700g(TM). The device is expected to be available from T-Mobile throughout the UK from early February.

The BlackBerry 8700g, developed and manufactured by RIM, has a full QWERTY keyboard in a new, sleek, lightweight design.

In addition to standard BlackBerry functionality including support for 'push' email, phone, text messaging, browser, organizer and corporate data applications, the BlackBerry 8700g was completely re-engineered to boost performance and features an Intel processor as well as 64 MB flash memory and 16 MB SRAM. The BlackBerry 8700g delivers faster Web browsing, attachment viewing and application performance. Using the BlackBerry 8700g, users can also view common attachments such as PowerPoint, Excel and Word.

The BlackBerry 8700g features a bright, high resolution, landscape QVGA (320x240) LCD display that supports more than 65,000 colors to deliver vivid graphics. The screen offers excellent indoor and outdoor readability by featuring an intelligent light sensing technology that automatically adjusts both the LCD and keyboard lighting to provide an optimized view in outdoor, indoor and dark environments. The device also features Bluetooth(R) support for hands-free use with headsets and car kits, as well as a speakerphone.

"The extension of our BlackBerry range of devices is vital to meet the mobile access needs of both business customers as well as consumers," said Camilla Cochrane, T-Mobile UK BlackBerry Marketing Manager. "We are pleased to include the BlackBerry 8700g in our suite of devices to further enable our customers to improve their productivity, reduce costs and enhance communications through the seamless use of wireless information."

"The BlackBerry 8700g delivers a major leap forward in performance together with a sleek and stylish design and a vivid color display. We think T-Mobile customers in the UK will be very impressed with the new look and feel of the BlackBerry 8700g," said Mark Guibert, Vice President, Corporate Marketing at Research In Motion.

For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server(TM) software, tightly integrates with Microsoft(R) Exchange, IBM Lotus(R) Domino(TM) and Novell GroupWise(R) and works with existing enterprise systems to enable secure, push-based wireless access to email and other corporate data.

For individuals and smaller businesses, BlackBerry Internet Service(TM) allows users to access up to ten corporate and/or personal email accounts (including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and most popular ISP email accounts) from a single device.
