RIM to enable aftermarket solution for BlackBerry Connect software
Posted on 27-Sep-2004 23:08. | Tags Filed under: News.



Research In Motion has plans to offer an aftermarket BlackBerry Connect software download for the Palm OS. With the BlackBerry Connect software download, customers with existing Palm OS-based wireless devices will be able to sign up for BlackBerry wireless services.

The Palm OS platform powers more than 35 million mobile devices from manufacturers such as Aceeca, AlphaSmart, Fossil, Foundertech, Garmin, GSPDA, Kyocera, Lenovo, palmOne, QTech, Samsung, Sony, Symbol, and Tapwave. Palm OS device manufacturers will also be able to ship the BlackBerry Connect solution with their hardware.

Both Verizon Wireless and Spring showed interest in this solution and will work with RIM to make the services available to Palm OS users.

For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server software integrates with Microsoft Exchange or IBM Lotus Domino (Novell GroupWise support is expected later this year) and works with existing enterprise systems to enable secure, push-based, wireless access to email and other corporate data.

For individuals and smaller businesses, BlackBerry Internet Service allows users to access multiple existing corporate and/or personal email accounts (including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and many popular ISP email accounts) from a single device.
