Sprint to Deploy RIM Software for the Treo 600?
A new article claims that Spring may is considering a new licensing deal with RIM that could potentially bring a BlackBerry client to the Treo 600.
The article published on Eweek talks about RIM's licensing efforts with Sprint PCS. According to officials from Sprint, the deal is contingent on BlackBerry support for the Treo 600 smartphone.
Just recently a palmOne CEO Todd Bradley said, a BlackBerry Client will not be integrated or included with a palmOne branded device anytime soon. This doesn't stop Sprint from adding it to their software offerings with the device, as palmOne allows wireless carriers to bundle different applications and solutions for their respective networks.
PalmSource previously announced a relationship with RIM to make the BlackBerry Connect solution available to Palm OS licensees. That deal leaves the decision to offer the software up to the individual Palm OS hardware companies to add this to their product offerings.
