BlackBerry comes to Windows Mobile

Canadian vendor Research In Motion (RIM) said Monday it would expand its support for Windows Mobile with an application that will enable BlackBerry services on Windows Mobile 6 devices.

RIM plans to offer the software application suite later this year. Once installed, the software will provide users with a virtual BlackBerry application experience, including support for BlackBerry email, phone, calendar, address book, tasks, memos, browser and instant messaging.

“RIM’s decision to expand its support for Windows Mobile will resonate well with customers, developers and carriers alike,” said Carrie MacGillivray, senior analyst for Mobile Enterprise Network Services at IDC.

“Security, manageability, usability, international coverage, network efficiency, mobile application support, back-end integration and device selection are all important considerations for a wireless platform and RIM continues to invest in the BlackBerry platform on all fronts.”
