Research In Motion, makers of the popular Blackberry handheld, is going to offer software to allow smartphone users running Windows Mobile 6.0 to use the Blackberry's applications without changing their hardware.
“Extending BlackBerry applications to a broader range of devices is an important element of RIM's strategy to provide an open platform that supports industry standards and addresses the various needs of our customers and partners,” said Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO at Research In Motion. “This new software will provide a range of important benefits, including easier support of Windows Mobile-based devices within BlackBerry Enterprise Server environments, a consistent user interface for BlackBerry applications across various devices, and the ability to run third-party applications developed for the BlackBerry platform.”
Last week Blackberry offered "virtual " service to their frantic customers over most of the Western Hemisphere. This week's announcement seems better. Would you run Virtual "Crackberry" on your smartphone?
