"In providing both BlackBerry and now Windows Mobile solutions, Optus is able to offer customers choice in terms of devices and supported technology platforms," said Paul Kitchin, marketing director, Optus Business.

To use the service, customers would need an Exchange 2003 server with Service Pack 2, devices that run Windows Mobile v5, and an Optus rate plan, according to Optus.
