Default [09-29-2004] BlackBerry Pushed into every Basket.

Please Login to Remove!

Cingular Wireless is now the exclusive provider of Research In Motion’s (RIM) newest BlackBerry, the 7290 Wireless Handheld, as its first quad-band, Bluetooth-enabled handset for business travelers working within the United States. Subscribers will get voice, e-mail, Short Messaging Services (SMS), an organizer, Web browsing and corporate data access capabilities via the new offering, which operates in the GSM/GPRS 850 MHz/900 MHz/1800 MHz/1900 MHz bands. The new BlackBerry 7290 should be available next month for $149 with a two-year service agreement.

Apparently, RIM really wants its BlackBerries in everyone’s basket. Another deal signed with ISP USA.Net offers a Model 7280 BlackBerry for the rock-bottom price of $100 once all the discounts are taken into account. However, one must be a USA.Net/Net@ddress subscriber who is willing to become an AT&T Wireless subscriber – at least for the time being. Then, maybe, you can upgrade to the new Cingular offering.
