C&W to bring Blackberry to Cayman Islands

Cable & Wireless and Research In Motion have announced plans to bring the BlackBerry(R) wireless solution to customers in the Cayman Islands. BlackBerry will operate on the Cable & Wireless GSM/GPRS network.

Cable & Wireless initially plans to offer the BlackBerry 7280 Wireless Handheld(TM), a handheld designed to provide the best combined email/data/phone experience. The Java(TM)-based BlackBerry 7280(TM) integrates email (including attachment viewing), phone, SMS, organiser, web and corporate data applications in a single handheld.

The high-resolution screen displays crisp images with support for over 65,000 colors while offering superior battery life for optimal wireless performance.

“We are pleased to offer BlackBerry to our enterprise customers,” said Tim Adam, Chief Executive, Cable & Wireless Cayman Islands. “We are dedicated to providing industry leading solutions that bring real benefits to our customers and with BlackBerry, our customers will be getting a popular and proven solution that keeps them connected to people and information throughout their day.”

“BlackBerry adoption continues to spread around the world and we are very pleased to begin working with Cable & Wireless to bring BlackBerry to the Cayman Islands,” said Don Morrison, Chief Operating Officer at Research In Motion. “BlackBerry support on the Cable & Wireless GSM/GPRS network will allow both residents and travelers to stay connected and productive in the Cayman Islands.”


BlackBerry integrates hardware, software and service to provide an end-to-end solution. BlackBerry Enterprise Server(TM) software supports both Microsoft(R) Exchange and IBM Lotus(R) Domino(TM) environments with single mailbox integration and provides IT departments with centralised administration, end-to-end security, multi-network support and a powerful development platform.

RIM’s relationship with Cable & Wireless will provide residents and visitors with seamless, “always-on” BlackBerry wireless access to information and communications while in the Cayman Islands.
