China Telecom, one of China's top three mobile carriers, confirmed yesterday for the first time that it would introduce RIM Blackberry and PalmTreo.
Since 2006, China Mobile, the country's dominant mobile carrier with more than two-thirds of the market, has already offered BlackBerry in China, but has not strongly promoted the service.
With the advantages in the government and corporate markets, China Telecom is more suitable for BlackBerry’s promotion.
In addition, BlackBerry adopts the CDMA technology in its North America base camp and China Telecom operates the CDMA network in China, which is the basis of the two parties' cooperation.
