BlackBerry boost for business users

20 January 2009 — 1:57 PM

Professionals looking at the latest phones from BlackBerry may be buoyed by news that the company is revising its technology.

The manufacturer of the devices, Research In Motion (RIM), has announced that it will work with IBM to make a number of changes to its Lotus software platform.

RIM claim this move will see features such as Symphony document viewer, Quickr, Domino Designer and XPages improved to provide better business use for customers that are away from the office.

Jim Balsillie, the company's co-chief executive, said it was hoped that by advancing the Lotus software, IBM would "make BlackBerry smartphones even more effective in mobilising businesses around the globe".

In addition, general manager for IBM Lotus Software Bob Picciano said users would be able to enjoy a level of access that can "keep their business moving, anytime, anywhere".

There are a number of BlackBerry handsets currently available that may interest those looking to upgrade used mobile phones, including the Storm - RIM's first touchscreen device.
