BlackBerry software coming to Windows Mobile 6 devices

Mobile phones

Research in Motion (RIM) has said that it plans to port software to devices running the latest Windows Mobile 6.0 operating system, allowing more devices to run like BlackBerries.

The software would allow people who don’t want to lose their existing handset functionality to subscribe to the BlackBerry service and get the BlackBerry interface on their mobile.

A user would be able to switch easily between BlackBerry and Windows Mobile functionality, according to RIM.

The company are currently working with a number of mobile phone operators, including AT&T, to make the software available, possibly by September.
