Hutch and Research In Motion (RIM) have announced the availability of BlackBerry for Hutch's mobile customers in India. Hutch's corporate customers will now be able to enjoy the BlackBerry solution that supports wireless access to email, phone, text messaging, browser, organizer and other mobile data applications.
