BlackBerry Balance coming soon - Headed to PlayBook as well
The rumored BlackBerry Balance looks to be on its way to public release. The product looks to separate your work and play life on your BlackBerry Smartphone, keeping your personal info private while IT can still snoop on the buisness side of things.
"There are two fundamental use cases on the smartphone - enterprise and personal. The problem is that they are conflicting," said Jeff McDowell, RIM's senior vice-president for business and platform marketing. "We just wanted to create an innovative solution that allows enterprises to manage the corporate data side while at the same time give their employees the freedom to use Facebook and browse the Web and get their Internet email at the same time,"
BlackBerry Balance is said to be in carrier testing at the moment and should be available for public consumption in about two months for BlackBerry smartphones and the PlayBook. We don't know any more specifics on the product just yet, but it looks like we shouldn't have to wait too much longer to try it out.
