RIM to offer BlackBerry support for Nokia phones

In the summer of 2008, when Nokia unveiled that it would no longer offer support for BlackBerry Connect on its S60 smartphones, many Nokia users were not quite happy about it. Especially those who use corporate email.   

Sure, Nokia partnered with IBM and Microsoft for corporate email, and it also launched its own messaging service, Mail on Ovi, but that’s still not enough for those who need BlackBerry support.

Well, all is not lost. According to Reuters, RIM is currently working to provide, once again, support for Nokia’s handsets. Tom Furlong, Senior Vice President at Nokia Enterprise Solutions, said so himself.


It’s not clear yet when exactly BlackBerry Connect will become compatible with the S60 devices, but it should happen sometime by the end of 2009.
