RIM's BlackBerry Connect™ licensing program will help Samsung enable its wireless handhelds to connect to BlackBerry Enterprise Server™ using the same secure, push-based wireless architecture and infrastructure that currently supports thousands of companies and government organizations around the world. The companies also intend to work together to enable Samsung handhelds to connect to BlackBerry Web Client™ services for individuals and smaller businesses.
"We are excited to work with RIM to integrate BlackBerry wireless data connectivity with Samsung wireless handhelds," said Mr. H. Woo Kim, VP of New Business Development Team, Mobile Communication Division at Samsung. "We are committed to providing our business customers with the best available solutions to meet their wireless data needs and we believe BlackBerry connectivity will be a popular choice with our customers."
Further details of the Samsung/RIM relationship and products will be shared at a later time.
