T-Mobile's BlackBerry Solution Garners Top Industry Honor

The envelope please... And the winner, once again, is T-Mobile USA.

T-Mobile USA, Inc., which constantly strives to provide innovative mobile solutions that give people the freedom to communicate in rich new ways, was recently recognized with a coveted Outlook 4Mobility Achievement Award for its voice-enabled BlackBerry™ solutions.

The award cited T- Mobile's continual leadership and market success in delivering BlackBerry solutions that make it simple and easy for mobile professionals to communicate with business colleagues, customers and even friends by voice or text messages or wireless email. BlackBerry solution from T-Mobile was recognized for being a reliable wireless solution that consistently provides quality national wireless voice and service and the ability to make a phone call in more than 130 countries and mobile email and Internet access in 50 different countries on one handheld.

"Wireless email is one of the most compelling of all wireless applications, and T-Mobile has taken the BlackBerry experience to a new level not only for corporate customers but for small and medium business customers as well," said Andrew Seybold, Outlook 4Mobility senior partner and one of the nation's leading authorities on mobile and wireless communications. "While the Blackberry is available on a number of networks, T-Mobile has made its own Blackberry implementation the one to beat."

"With extensive roaming capabilities and support for BlackBerry both domestically and internationally, T-Mobile has proven to be a reliable provider of the BlackBerry wireless solution," said Mark Guibert, vice president, corporate marketing at Research In Motion. "Together, we're making it easy for individuals and businesses around the world by simplifying communications and information access."

Beyond its leading standards-based GSM/GPRS voice and high-speed data network, T-Mobile was recognized for its continued leadership with a BlackBerry Web Client ™ solution that allows small businesses and individuals to take full advantage of wireless email without server software. T-Mobile was also lauded for making quality wireless voice and email affordable and understandable with a great handheld and simple unlimited data plans that are easy to understand -- no MB counting.

"T-Mobile has worked diligently to simplify wireless voice and email use and make it more affordable for all mobile professionals, regardless if they're an individual, small local business, or a large enterprise company," said Scott Ballantyne vice president of business services for T-Mobile USA, Inc. "We're appreciative and honored to be recognized for the quality of our solutions, and we take special pride in the attention placed upon the BlackBerry Web Client software which we feel makes the benefits of our BlackBerry solutions accessible to a much larger audience than ever before."
