The company plans to begin offering the new application suite later in 2007 for select devices based on Windows Mobile 6.
RIM says its Blackberry application suite will provide a "virtual BlackBerry application experience" to users of Windows Mobile devices.
This will include "support for BlackBerry e-mail, phone, calendar, address book, tasks, memos, browser, instant messaging and other applications developed for the BlackBerry platform."
Although RIM had previously offered a "BlackBerry Connect" service for select Windows Mobile devices (including HTC and Motorola handhelds), the earlier service appears to have been limited to support for RIMs e-mail and PIM (contacts, calendar, etc.) data push services, and did not introduce any BlackBerry-style applications on the devices.
