Hutchison to launch BlackBerry service

The previously announced partnership between Research In Motion and Hong Kong-based telecom company Hutchison will come to fruition May 6 when Hutchison will make RIM's BlackBerry service available to its 5.7 million subscribers in China, Britain, Taiwan and Macau. Service in other countries will follow. The news of the launch date of RIM's service came Tuesday at Waterloo, Ontario-based RIM's first analyst day in Atlanta. RIM also announced its new Mobile Data Service, which is being tested in trials and will help developers create wireless capabilities beyond the e-mail access and calendar updating services that are now possible on BlackBerry devices.
