BlackBerry allows global roaming

Research In Motion (RIM) has launched two BlackBerry handhelds for global travellers.

The BlackBerry 6710 can be used in North America, Asia Pacific and Europe, on 900/1900 MHz Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) and General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) networks.

The BlackBerry 6720 can only be used within Asia Pacific and Europe on the 900/1800 MHz frequency GSM/GPRS networks. Both of the Java-based handhelds offer e-mail, phone, short message service (SMS) browser and organiser applications.

RIM has also introduced a new Web-based application with the handhelds, called BlackBerry Web Client. This supports Internet service provider (ISP) e-mail accounts through the point of presence (POP3) protocol, allowing users to access multiple existing e-mail accounts from their handheld. A default Web mail account is also provided.
