Windows Mobile BlackBerry?

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 14-Mar-2006 09:19

Over at RIMarkable there's a comment on a poll running on the BlackBerry Forums: "How about a BlackBerry that runs Windows Mobile?": "...I am not saying that Research in Motion should scrap the BB OS for Windows Mobile. I am, however, saying that with RIM clearly getting into the consumer market and plans for a BlackBerry with multimedia capabilities and an integrated digital camera seemingly on the way, offering a device based on the Windows Mobile OS is not a stretch." Robb continues saying: "There are a ton of applications already developed for Windows Mobile. RIM would be able to tap into this large application base and not have to reinvent the wheel when it comes to adding new features to the BlackBerry. Microsoft is in this space to stay and it is always easier to partner with Microsoft than it is to compete head-to-head against them. I honestly don’t think that Microsoft cares if you use a BlackBerry or some other PDA type device so long as it runs Windows Mobile and connects to Exchange on the back end. Just look at how well the Treo 700w is doing right now." Also, in the comments there's a link to a rumour on RIM bringing a Windows Mobile Blackberry device to the market. Although someone could be confusing the RIM BlackBerry Connect service with the RIM BlackBerry handheld. Sounds good, and sounds right...
