Following the recent announcement of the Palm Powered Mobile World program, the PalmSource and RIM agreement continues by initiating the technology development phase of the relationship. RIM and PalmSource anticipate negotiating a technology distribution agreement for the BlackBerry connectivity solution on Palm OS at a later date.
The goal of this development effort is to create a BlackBerry connectivity solution for Palm OS licensees in the second half of 2004. This solution will be designed to provide Palm OS licensees the ability to connect their Palm Powered wireless handhelds and smartphones to BlackBerry Enterprise Server using the same secure push-based wireless architecture and infrastructure that currently supports thousands of companies and government organizations. The BlackBerry Connect solution for Palm OS will also support BlackBerry Web Client, a wireless Internet email service for individuals and small business that does not require server software.
