Cingular Wireless, along with Research In Motion (RIM), is launching a new suite of BlackBerry handhelds operating on its nationwide network.

Cingular’s flagship data devices are the monochrome BlackBerry 6280 and color BlackBerry 7280 handhelds. The BlackBerry 6280 and BlackBerry 7280 are tri-band handhelds that integrate phone, email and data access to allow customers to use Cingular’s GSM/GPRS network and manage information and communications.

“Cingular is the leading provider of wireless email services with more experience supporting BlackBerry customers and corporate systems connectivity than any other carrier in the U.S.,” said Jim Ryan, vice president of data product management and business marketing at Cingular Wireless. “Now with these new BlackBerry solutions, we are improving the strength of our position with higher speeds, a wireless data footprint that meets or beats any other carrier in the country and enterprise-grade service and support.”
