BlackBerry on your Palm

Mobile phones

Looks like Research in Motion, the company behind BlackBerry is committing Hari Kari at least in terms of its own hardware. For after agreements to roll out its innovative software, which automatically pushes e-mail to the mobile device, to Sony Ericsson and Nokia it has now inked a deal with the company behind Palm’s software PalmSource.

The company is expected to make the Palm OS Mail Client that supports BlackBerry Connect available to Palm OS licensees, which includes PalmOne PDAs and smartphones from Samsung and Orange, in the second half of 2004.

If you can get push e-mail on all these phones why on earth would you want to buy a pug ugly and feature-poor BlackBerry phone?
