Palm used to only have the Palm operating system on its mobile devices. Now it’s opening up and using Microsoft. RIM used to only have Blackberry on its hardware, but now you can get RIM’s email service on a Palm device.
The Washington Post writes The deal is being done through RIM’s BlackBerry Connect licensing program, which is designed to expand its subscriber base while turning potential competitors into allies.
Almost all of RIM’s current subscribers now access its e-mail service through RIM’s own thumb-operated BlackBerry, which helped popularize wireless e-mailing when it was launched in 1999.
