MWC: RIM overhauls internet browser to attract     non-business customers

BlackBerry manufacturer RIM has launched an overhauled internet browser for its devices today in a bid to attract more non-business customers.



Mike Lazaridis, RIM co-CEO and inventor of the BlackBerry showed the new WebKit browser at the Mobile World Congress today (16 February).



The WebKit browser will be available on BlackBerrys this year.



Blackberry users take up one third the network space of other browser users, easing network capacity problems spurred by smartphone users, the company said.



RIM is also introducing a new, free software platform for small-business users, known as the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express. The product will help RIM and its carrier partners add SMEs with fewer than 200 BlackBerry users.
