Can you hear me now? That guy might be annoying, but Verizon carrying these new phones is not! They are the second to announce support for both the i700 and 7135. All three will run on their new high-speed Express Network.
“Our enterprise customers have some common needs for their mobile workers that include affordable and consistent access to e-mail and their corporate intranet – but they appreciate choice when it comes to operating system, functionality and device form factor. We’re working with a number of our trusted manufacturers to help the mobile professional get increased utility and efficiency from full-featured device options that further duplicate the office environment,” said Cindy Patterson, Verizon Wireless vice president – enterprise data.
These new enterprise devices will operate on Verizon Wireless’ national high-speed Express NetworkSM, which is available in 900 cities nationwide and delivers average data transmission speeds between 40 and 60 kilobits per second (kbps) with bursts up to 144 kbps – ideal for most corporate applications.
Both the i700 and the 7135 will be available in April through their business channels. Hopefully they will reach Verizon outlets shortly thereafter. Pricing on the new units and a release date for the BlackBerry are not yet available.
