BlackBerry signs Expo contract

OFFICIALS from the Bureau of Shanghai World Expo Coordination will use BlackBerry cell phones at work when the Expo opens on May 1, organizers said today.

And users of BlackBerry cell phones worldwide will be able to read Expo news provided by Shanghai Daily. They will get access to the newspaper stories after downloading the free App World.

Besides news stories, Shanghai Daily will also provide tips for visiting the Expo site - information on transport, hotels, restaurants and how to avoid queues. Coverage of the pavilions and their attractions will help prepare visitors for their Expo tour.

The service will be available from mid-April through the six-month Expo, and information is updated as Shanghai Daily's Website is refreshed.

Research In Motion, developer of the BlackBerry cell phone, which signed a contract with the Shanghai Expo bureau today, has a system tailored for Expo staff, enabling them to handle e-mails, get information updated and keep in touch with co-workers.

Li Tong, director of RIM China market, said the system has been expanded in function to help Expo workers share real-time information on networks.
