BlackBerry for Windows
BlackBerry manufacturer Research in Motion (RIM) has announced that it will expand its support for Windows-based mobiles.
RIM has developed a software application to enable devices from third-party manufacturers to access BlackBerry software and services.
Once installed, the software will provide users with support for BlackBerry email, phone, calendar, address book, tasks, memos, browser, instant messaging and other applications developed for the BlackBerry platform. The application's icon will appear as an icon on the screen in the same manner as other third-party applications.
It plans to start offering the new application later this year on select Windows Mobile 6-enabled handsets.
RIM has previously enabled BlackBerry connectivity for mobile devices based on the Microsoft Windows Powered Pocket PC and other Smartphone platforms.
