BlackBerry Services Returning To Nokia Devices?
on 21 Jan 2009 09:19 am EST
It's been several months now since Nokia announced their new new E71 and E66 devices, and while the announcement came as great news to S60 and Nokia fans, Nokia darkened their day by letting them all know that BlackBerry Connect was not going to be supported on Nokia devices any longer. Nokia's explanation of course was that their devices and new email system they were working on (Nokia Messaging) was a much better email solution as it catered to all users, not just business users. In a recent interview with Tom Furlong, Nokia's head of messaging, he stated that Nokia's messaging service is up and running and people are using it but he also mentioned the following as well.
"We are in the interim period of time when we have dropped support ourselves, and BlackBerry is readying support for their service on Nokia devices,"
That basically indicates that RIM, aside from working on their Application Suite for Windows Mobile they are also working on a solution for Nokia device users and quite possibly S60 OS users in general. Let's just hope they don't take as long with this application as they are taking with the Windows Mobile application suite lol!
