BBM On Iphones & Ipads ?!
 
Research in Motion announced on Monday that it will update its BlackBerry Enterprise Server software to support Apple hardware running the iOS operating system, including the iPhone and iPad, as well as devices that run Google Android.

The multi-platform "BlackBerry Enterprise Solution" will support management and securing of both smartphones and tablets, and is designed for enterprises and government organizations. The features will be added to BlackBerry Enterprise Server through RIM's pending acquisition of ubitexx.

RIM said that the new solution is "expected" to allow secure device management for iOS-based devices, as well as hardware running the Google Android mobile operating system. RIM aims to allow management of those devices from a single Web-based console.

"The multi-platform BlackBerry Enterprise Solution is designed to address a growing market and respond to requests from enterprise customers who want a secure multi-platform device management solution from a company that already delivers the gold standard for enterprise mobility," said Peter Devenyi, Communications Platform Group VP at RIM. "We recognize the opportunity to continue leading in the enterprise market by providing customers with a common platform to help simplify the management of a variety of mobile devices."

RIM said the single web-based console is being designed to provide IT administrators with the ability to distribute software and manage policies, inventory, security and services for BlackBerry devices, as well as other mobile devices. IT administrators will be able to manage devices over-the-air, including activating devices, distributing software and applications, locking or wiping devices, enforcing and resetting device passwords, setting IT policies, and managing optional mobile applications for end users.

Certain features, including push technology and firewall access, are expected to remain exclusive to BlackBerry devices because such capabilities are built into the design of a device’s operating system. The product is expected to be released later this year.

RIM's multi-platform push for BlackBerry Enterprise Server was one of a number of announcements from the company on Monday. Also revealed was the new "BlackBerry Balance" technology that allows use of a smartphone for both work and personal purposes, ensuring privacy of personal content and security of work data.

The company also unveiled a new video chat application and announced a Facebook application for its newly launched BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. The playbook launched in April to lukewarm reviews.

The company also announced the two new phones that run the BlackBerry OS 7 software: The BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930. Both feature a 1.2GHz processor and a "Liquid Graphics" touchscreen.



The BlackBerry Bold 9900 supports HSPA+ connectivity, while the 9930 supports CDMA EV-DO Rev. A and HSPA+ global roaming on GSM/UMTS networks. Both also feature built-in support for near-field communications, as well as a built-in compass and 720p high-definition video recording capabilities. They will be available this summer.

RIM surprised last week with a pre-announcement of its sales for the May quarter. The company opted to disclose its sales early because it expects it to be below guidance. The company also warned investors of impending delays for new BlackBerry product launches.

Wall Street reacted negatively to RIM's announcement, and one analyst said that the company's struggles and product delays are an opportunity for Apple to gain a greater lead over its competitor. Last quarter, Apple sold 18.65 million

In my opinion, this is the dumbest move from RIM ever.
This way they will simply increase Apple's sales.

Neoxter 05-03-2011 01:32 PM

^ True :D it's like this:

BB phone: + BBM - Smartphone specs
Iphone: +Smartphone specs - BBM

iPhone with BBM: the ultimate smartphone

PS: this analysis is from the market's point view, when this happen my hate will double for both :P

BBM will not be on non BlackBerry platforms. This will only manage the e-mailing. It will not even include the BES push capabilities on non BlackBerry phones.

What are you basing this fact on?

Kingroudy 05-09-2011 06:51 PM

^^ on the fact of check what the Android/iOS devices are capable of then try to find 50% or that on BB.

The fact that they can be hacked in less than 6 min which means all your information and passwords are with someone else? Please enlighten me.

I am pretty sure that Neoxter and Kingroudy are basing their hate to Blackberry on the fact that lots of teens have Blackberries.

Blackberry is a phone for business people. It is excellent if you want to stay connected to get push notifications. The blackberry service is perfect for business purposes you can't deny that.

In addition, the new specs are more than enough. I know they're a little outdated, but I don't think a Dual Core CPU is needed to run the BB OS, it's not a heavy load OS, in addition no super games are released on it yet.

RIM brought Android Apps support to Blackberry Playbook, which has a dual core CPU already, so the apps must work perfectly.

Anyways, I don't think that Blackberries suck, it's young kids who are using them.

BB sales are already going down while apple and Android up, specially with apps like whatsapp and many more which are as good as bbm.

BBM cross platform is a nice thing that can help BB keeping its name across the market since the BBM is a nice messenger, and i don't think it is for free.

Thanks for this great reply... I see no reason why teenagers should not use the blackberry when it saves them tons of money in texting...
In the new Bold generation they will be the first in implementing NFC technology in any smartphone... Not really behind... Bold+PlayBook=Perfection :)

At the end of the day a phone is like a car it is a matter of choice and the way you want to use it.

The last quarter both iPhone and BlackBerry devices sales went down... And BBM going to other platforms is a dream that will never come true ;)

It does have... But nothing to implement it with, a feature that is not used. NFC on BB is going to be integrated with the PB.
