Personally we wouldn’t give a Blackberry device house space as they look awful and don’t feature niceties like web browsing and music and video playback.
We would however kill for a version of Blackberry innovative e-mail software on our favourite mobile phones (02’s XDA, Orange’s Treo 600/SPV E-200).
Well, now we may have to consider investing a Sony Ericsson P900 once again for at 3GSM Blackberry’s parent company, Research in Motion (RIM), announced its intention to roll out its Blackberry e-mail solution to owners of SE’s P900 smartphone.
The Blackberry device has become a huge hit, especially in the US, thanks to its potent combination of always on connectivity and ‘push technology.’ This means that the device’s e-mail system automatically senses when a server has received a new message and then sends it to the device without the user having to dial up.
The software, which requires the back up of Blackberry’s Enterprise Server and the Blackberry Web Client to be integrated onto the device, will be launched to both enterprise and individual users of the Sony Ericsson P900 later this year.
It puts the Sony Ericsson in a powerful position of sporting the best web browser for phones in the Opera browser and now the best e-mail system. RIM has already announced that future Nokia and Samsung handsets will also feature Blackberry e-mail solutions as an option.
