RIM Plans BlackBerry Update

June 30th, 2006

Research In Motion’s co-CEO and Chairman James Balsillie discusses a few updates for the popular BlackBerry email devices and services with eWeek.com’s Wayne Rash.

Highlights include:

More GSM mobile phones will be supported by the BlackBerry Connect email service.

RIM was now including virtual PBX connections for both TDM- and SIP-based phone systems so that the phone could be used directly with a company’s PBX, whether it was a legacy system or an IP PBX.

RIM would be introducing new features to BlackBerry devices, including MP3 players, video, memory expansion and image capture, very soon. In addition, he said that GPS would be included in virtually all BlackBerry devices, except for some that would work with a Bluetooth GPS receiver. Also RIM expects to release a Wi-Fi and cellular hybrid BlackBerry by end of year 2006.
