Vodacom, a South Africa-based cellular network, and Research In Motion (RIM) announced the availability of BlackBerry(R) Connect(TM) for the Motorola MPx220 and the Sony Ericsson P910i, as well as BlackBerry Built-In(TM) for the Siemens SK65, for the first time in South Africa.

Asked about this new development, Pieter Uys, Vodacom chief operating officer said: "BlackBerry is proving to be a very popular service with Vodacom customers and we are excited to offer our customers the latest device choices. By combining state-of-the-art devices such as the Motorola MPx220, Sony Ericsson P910i and Siemens SK65 with BlackBerry services, Vodacom South Africa is expanding upon its BlackBerry portfolio, providing our customers with additional choice."

Vodacom was first to market with BlackBerry in South Africa in February 2005 offering the BlackBerry 7290(TM) and BlackBerry 7100v(TM) devices, as well as BlackBerry Enterprise Server(TM) and BlackBerry Internet Service(TM).

"With more than 3 million BlackBerry subscribers today, BlackBerry continues to grow in popularity around the world. We are very pleased to work with Vodacom South Africa to deliver push-based BlackBerry services for a broader range of mobile devices," said Mark Guibert, vice president of Corporate Marketing for Research In Motion.
