    DUBLIN, IRELAND and WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(June 27, 2006) - Vodafone Ireland and Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM)(TSX:RIM) today introduced the BlackBerry 8707v for business and individual customers in Ireland. With the launch of the BlackBerry 8707v, mobile workers will continue to take advantage of proven BlackBerry functionality, leveraging Vodafone's UMTS network.

    BlackBerry from Vodafone has become hugely successful in Ireland, helping mobile staff to save time and boost efficiency. Likewise, thousands of companies are benefiting from our UMTS network. The BlackBerry 8707v leverages the Vodafone network to provide BlackBerry customers with access to the Internet, e-mail, phone and corporate data applications quickly while out of the office," said Shane Brodbin, BlackBerry Product Manager at Vodafone Ireland.

    Vodafone is Ireland's leading mobile phone operator with a base of over 2.075 million customers and 1,900 employees. Vodafone customers account for 49% of the mobile market in Ireland.

    The main and most coveted advantage is that u can conduct a telephone call and still be able to surf the web, send email, PIN messages etc while on the 8707

    Of course, beyond the ability to make a call and receive data at the same time the 3G UMTS 2100 MHz capability are the reason the 8707 exists. Will this operate now at 3G speed on Cingular HSDPA?
