EarthLink brings cell phone service to BlackBerry

Internet service provider EarthLink (ELNK) in May will begin selling cell phone service on BlackBerry e-mail devices, the company is expected to announce Monday.
The move by the No. 3 ISP shows just how similar Internet and phone companies have become.
