Have traditionally been Movistar, Vodafone and Orange the only operators that offered Blackberry service to its customers since it seemed not easy to reach an agreement with RIM, but this began to change not long ago and multichannel and Euskaltel, Telecable also began to offer BIS to management e-mail and access to the known BlackBerry Messenger among other advantages.
Now we know that Telstra will launch July BIS no extra cost along with their Internet to go mobile (prepaid and contract) rate of 8 euros/month with 500 MB to maximum speed and 64 Kbps the rest of traffic if not cons more traffic at high speed. In addition, contract customers can also enjoy BIS along with other available rates as the bond of 1 GB for 15 euros and the rates of Internet to carry 3 and 5 GB for 25 and 35 euros respectively.
To support the launch of Blackkberry with Yoigo, the operator added to their catalogue three of RIM terminals as the Curve 8520 It is available in all operators offering BIS, Curve 3G 9300 y Torch 9800 available with stay of 18 months (except at the rate of 4 which involves a stay of 24 months) with the following prices:
As it occurs in Vodafone and Orange, the BlackBerry 8520 also available in prepaid Yoigo for 149 euros.
In principle, the BES service (BlackBerry Enterprise Server) whose software is installed on an internal server for corporate environments will not be available.
Let us hope that in the coming months, Telstra expanded its catalog with Blackberry so attractive as the latest models, Bold, Storm and Touch are also found in other operators.
