Siemens to integrate BlackBerry connectivity on new mobile phones

Siemens Mobile has announced plans to work with Research in Motion (RIM) to enable Blackberry connectivity on Siemens mobile phones. This joint venture would add the integrated data connectivity capabilities on Siemens mobile phones using BlackBerry email, personal organizer, and browser applications.

RIM and Siemens are already working together using RIM’s BlackBerry ConnectT licensing program to enable Siemens phones to get their email and corporate data applications via BlackBerry Enterprise ServerT. This would use the same secure, push-based wireless architecture and infrastructure that is currently in use by thousands of companies and government organizations around the world. They also announced intentions to work on enabling Siemens mobile phones to connect to BlackBerry Web Client services for individuals and smaller businesses.

“We look forward to working with RIM to integrate the BlackBerry experience with our mobile phones,” said Thorsten Heins, President of Mobile Phones within the Information and Communications Mobile group (Siemens Mobile). “Our customers want simplicity, power, and style all in one device and the unique push-based BlackBerry services will provide users with ‘always-on’ access to important information.”

“We are pleased to work with Siemens to offer BlackBerry services on Siemens mobile phones,” said Don Morrison, Chief Operating Officer at Research In Motion. “BlackBerry connectivity on Siemens mobile phones will enable users to stay connected with email and other data applications and allow IT departments and carriers to leverage their existing investments in the BlackBerry platform.”

Siemens Mobile plans to introduce a BlackBerry-enabled handset in the fourth quarter of 2004. This handset will be based on its 65 platform of mobile phones, which is Siemens Mobile’s latest platform for mobile phones. The company has recently introduced a variety of phones based on this powerful platform, with features such as, multimedia messaging, digital video capability, and photo capabilities.
