BlackBerry 'push e-mail' comes to local shores |
By EDWIN YAPP
SINGAPORE: You've been reading about the handheld device for years now, and now it's finally happening: The BlackBerry wireless platform is coming to Malaysia.
With it, professionals on the move can have their e-mail forwarded to them automatically, keeping them in the corporate loop.
This innovative solution, also known as “push e-mail,” is being jointly brought to Malaysians by Canadian wireless solution provider Research In Motion Ltd (RIM) and Maxis Communication Bhd.
The two companies last Tuesday signed a memorandum of understanding that will by year-end give Maxis Mobile customers access to push e-mail, corporate data, Internet access and SMS (short message service) over Maxis' GSM and GPRS (general packet radio service) network.
The Waterloo, Ontario-based RIM (www.rim.com) said that it had been working with Maxis for the past nine months to bring its award-winning Blackberry wireless platform to Malaysia.
