CeBIT - RIM shrinks the BlackBerry

Research in Motion (RIM) unveiled two new BlackBerry handhelds with a smaller design and more memory for European users at the CeBIT show in Hanover.

The BlackBerry 6210 and BlackBerry 6220 allow users to make phone calls and check their corporate e-mail over GSM/GPRS networks. The 6210 works on 900/1900MHz networks around the world, while the 6220 only works on 900/1800MHz networks in Europe and Asia-Pacific, RIM said.

Both models come with 16Mbytes of flash memory plus 2Mbytes of SRAM (static RAM). They measure 113mm x 74mm x 21mm, and weigh 136 grams.

Users will now be able to view a number of different e-mail attachments, such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents and PDF files from Adobe Systems. RIM also enhanced the wireless e-mail synchronisation features, allowing users to delete and file their e-mail messages without having to connect the device to their PC through a cradle.
