Digicel to offer BlackBerry in eight Caribbean markets

Digicel Group, the fastest growing mobile telecommunications company in the Caribbean, and Research In Motion (RIM) plans to add BlackBerry(R), a leading wireless platform, to Digicel’s corporate customer offerings throughout its expanding operations in the Caribbean.

BlackBerry will be available in Aruba, Barbados, Cayman Islands, Curacao, Grenada, Jamaica, St Vincent & the Grenadines and St Lucia on Digicel’s popular GSM/GPRS network.

BlackBerry from Digicel will enable customers to increase productivity and efficiency in their working lives by easily accessing e-mail, text messaging, Internet, organizer and corporate data applications from a single, integrated device. This offering will be supported by Digicel’s award wining customer care standards. Furthermore Digicel customers will be able to roam with BlackBerry anywhere within the Digicel network(i) and enjoy the same level of service they have come to expect from Digicel.

According to Digicel Group Marketing Director Mr Ben Atherton: “We are delighted to be working with RIM. We are increasing our voice and data offerings to our corporate customers, and so are pleased to enrich our portfolio of wireless services with BlackBerry. Access on the move to corporate email and other applications is becoming just as important as receiving calls for this target. Our corporate customers will be able to enjoy easy-to-use and secure access to their information via the popular BlackBerry platform.”

“New and existing Digicel customers will be able to choose BlackBerry and enjoy the freedom and power of advanced wireless connectivity. BlackBerry offers the best mobile experience for users that want to access voice, email and data services from a single wireless device,” said Mark Guibert, Vice President, Corporate Marketing at RIM.

For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server(TM) tightly integrates with Microsoft(R) Exchange, IBM Lotus(R) Domino(TM) and Novell GroupWise(TM) enterprise systems to enable 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 email accounts (including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and many popular ISP email accounts) from a single device.

BlackBerry is now available on wireless networks around the world with over three million subscribers using BlackBerry services today.
