BlackBerry Partnership Could Benefit Business Users

A new partnership has been announced by Research in Motion (RIM) and HP that could be of interest to professionals.

The deal aims to develop new services for the BlackBerry line of devices that could make their business applications more useful in streamlining working processes.

It could also mean that applications such as BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 are enhanced on the RIM's latest phones.

Jim Balsillie, co-chief executive officer of RIM, said: "Through our collaboration with HP, businesses will have access to an expanded set of applications and services for their BlackBerry smartphone deployments."

The network's New Digital Families Report revealed one in three parents think, if anything, regular access to mobile web and email services are improve the balance between people's work and home life.
