Palm users can now access BlackBerry info

Now Palm OS licensees will be able to make connections between their Palm PDAs and RIM BlackBerry servers.

The BlackBerryÆ Connect offering for Palm OS is the result of a joint development effort between PalmSource and RIM, announced in December 2003, to provide Palm OS licensees with access to the push-based, BlackBerry wireless infrastructure and to enable seamless connectivity between Palm Powered smart mobile devices and BlackBerry wireless services (including BlackBerry Enterprise Serverô and BlackBerry Web Clientô), as well as global address list look-up and IT policy support. PalmSource is expected to make the Palm OS Mail Client that supports BlackBerry Connect available to Palm OS licensees in the second half of 2004, as previously announced. (full press release)
