Blackberry Connect Solution to be enabled in Motorola MPx and MPx220 devices
Research In Motion (RIM) has announced plans to enable BlackBerry connectivity on the Motorola MPx and MPx220 mobile devices. Through RIM's BlackBerry Connect licensing program, the Motorola MPx and MPx220 will be able to connect to BlackBerry services including BlackBerry Enterprise Server and BlackBerry Web Client.

For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server software tightly integrates with Microsoft Exchange or IBM Lotus Domino (Novell GroupWise support is expected to be added 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 Web Client provides an Internet-based email interface that allows users to access multiple existing corporate and/or personal email accounts (including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and popular ISP email accounts) from a single device.

The Motorola MPx (pictured) is called by the companies the device for heavy email users, because of its full QWERTY keyboard and built in WiFi with a high-end phone. The Motorola MPx uses Microsoft Windows Mobile Pocket PC 2003 Phone Edition. The Motorola MPX 220 has GSM/GPRS quad band. The MPx220 features Microsoft Windows Mobile SmartPhone 2003.

The BlackBerry platform and services have been approved and deployed by carriers around the world and thousands of companies and government organizations have already installed BlackBerry Enterprise Server behind their firewall. The combination of RIM's 'always on' connectivity and 'push' technology that automatically delivers email and other data to and from a wireless device, makes BlackBerry an efficient and attractive communications platform.

The BlackBerry Connect solution for the Motorola MPx and MPx220 is expected to be available separately via download in Q4. Further details will be available at a later date.
