In a meeting attended by Mr. Jameel Bin Abdullah Almolhem CEO of STC KSA, Mr. Ghassan Hasbani, CEO of STC Group international operations, with Mr. Jim Balsillie co-CEO at RIM and Mr. Patrick Spence, Managing Director, Global Sales and Regional Marketing at RIM, and as an affirmation to the strategic partnership between (STC) and Canadian RIM Company, the two parties discussed, in the sidelines of GITEX exhibition in Dubai, the enhancement of launching new services to STC's BlackBerry subscribing customers in the Middle East.

According to the regional partnership, signed in August 2011 between STC Group (including STC KSA, VIVA Kuwait and VIVA Bahrain), the two parties will collaborate to provide STC customers using BlackBerry® Internet Service and BlackBerry® Enterprise Server, with technologies that enable customers to access their email accounts, social networking platforms and the Web in new and innovative ways.

“Strengthening our partnership with RIM is another step in our promise to deliver efficient and cost effective services to our customers,” said Jameel El Molhem, CEO of STC KSA. “Working closely with RIM to introduce new technologies and service offerings will allow us to broaden our portfolio, and continue to provide our customers with new and exciting smart phones.”

Patrick Spence, Managing Director, Global Sales and Regional Marketing at RIM, said: “We are committed to a strong partnership with STC, both in the Middle East and on an international scale as they expand into global markets. Our close collaboration aims to create value-added services for STC and give customers access to the latest smart phones technologies, such as Near Field Communication.”

Ghassan Hasbani, CEO of STC Group international operations concluded “Looking beyond the Middle East, we are expanding our partnership with RIM to provide the very best of BlackBerry smart phones and services to our increasingly global customer base.”

It is worth mentioning that STC and RIM recently announced the introduction of a portfolio of new BlackBerry smart phones, including the BlackBerry® Bold™ 9900, BlackBerry® Torch™ 9810 and BlackBerry® Torch™ 9860. The new smart phones are based on the next-generation BlackBerry® 7 Operating System (OS), which introduces substantial overall performance enhancements including a next generation BlackBerry browser with a significantly faster, more fluid web browsing experience that is among the best in the industry.
