BlackBerry Connect comes to Treo 650

Oct 17 2005 - 02:16 AM ET | Palm, Research In Motion

Research In Motion and Palm today announced that BlackBerry Connect will become available for the Treo 650. This will allow Treo 650 users to enjoy the popular BlackBerry push email service (though a BlackBerry Enterprise Server is required). While most of Research In Motion's BlackBerry customers use a RIM device, the licensing program is expected to become a greator portion of revenue as it begins to ship on more devices. RIM already announced a deal to bring BlackBerry Connect to select Nokia handsets.

The new software is expected to start shipping from carriers starting early next year.
