    RIM Announces Plans to Launch BlackBerry Service in China

    Beijing, China and Waterloo, ON - Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM; TSX: RIM) today announced that China Mobile Communications Co., Ltd (China Mobile) plans to offer BlackBerry® in China.
    RIM and China Mobile will initially focus on supporting multinational corporations with operations in China. China Mobile will soon offer BlackBerry service nationwide and provide SIM cards to support BlackBerry service. Availability of BlackBerry Wireless Handhelds™ and BlackBerry Enterprise Server™ will be announced at a later date.
    “Millions of mobile professionals around the world have recognized the unique security, manageability, efficiency and reliability of the BlackBerry architecture,” said Jim Balsillie, Chairman and Co-CEO at RIM. “We are very excited to bring BlackBerry to China.

    Confused here LOL Why are they releasing the SIM cards and BIS service before the devices themselves? Do they currently use BB Connect or BB Built-In on other devices?

    I think they meant that the coverage and SIM's will be provisioned with BB data service. For roamers and most of all the new devices.

    Maybe someone from China wrote it
