Research In Motion today announced availability of its newest BlackBerry® handhelds to mobile professionals in the United Kingdom. The BlackBerry 7230™ and BlackBerry 6230™ support worldwide international roaming* on GSM/GPRS networks and deliver email, phone, SMS, browser and organizer applications.

The BlackBerry 7230 features a crisp, high-resolution color screen and the BlackBerry 6230 incorporates a high-contrast monochrome screen. Both of the new BlackBerry handhelds are compact and lightweight with superior battery performance, making them ideal for mobile use.

The new, Java™-based handhelds are available in the United Kingdom as part of T-Mobile International's retail launch of BlackBerry for professional consumers. The BlackBerry 7230, BlackBerry 6230 and professional consumer service offering were unveiled by RIM and T-Mobile in Germany and Austria on June 2. Details of pricing and roaming services are available from T-Mobile International.

"RIM is committed to delivering the best combined data and voice experience for mobile professionals," said Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO at Research In Motion. "Our powerful BlackBerry handhelds are easy to use and can provide a wireless extension to one or more existing email accounts, in addition to support for phone, SMS, web and organiser applications. We are pleased to introduce the BlackBerry 7230/6230 with T-Mobile International to professional consumers and small businesses in the UK."

"We are continuing to be a 'connected' society; email is becoming as essential as the ability to make a mobile phone call. T-Mobile is committed to making the workplace wireless, focusing on the small business and 'prosumer' market as a core element in our mobile data strategy," said Nikesh Arora, Chief Marketing Officer for T-Mobile International.
