You will be able to run BlackBerry applications in your Windows Mobile device
Research In Motion (RIM) has announced plans to expand its support for Windows Mobile-based devices with a new software application suite that will enable devices from third-party manufacturers to execute BlackBerry software applications and services.

The company plans to begin offering the new software application suite later this year for select devices based on Windows Mobile 6. 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, instant messaging and other applications developed for the BlackBerry platform.

Devices running the BlackBerry application suite will be able to connect to BlackBerry services via BlackBerry Enterprise Server as well as BlackBerry Internet Service.

The new BlackBerry application suite will complement existing Windows Mobile 6 functionality and will appear as an icon on the screen in the same manner as other third-party applications. Upon clicking the BlackBerry icon, a suite of BlackBerry applications will load and will feature the familiar user interface of a BlackBerry smartphone. The device's existing Windows Mobile applications are preserved, allowing the user to switch between the Windows Mobile applications and the BlackBerry application suite.

RIM sees the built-in support for BlackBerry Mobile Data System (BlackBerry MDS) as one of the strengths of this solution, allowing organizations to develop their own BlackBerry applications or deploy third-party BlackBerry applications that can run on Windows Mobile-based devices as well as BlackBerry smartphones.
