RIM Rolls Out Two New BlackBerrys

Remember RIM? The good folks who brought you the BlackBerry and transformed the smartphone market? They're back at it.

The company has announced plans to roll out two new BlackBerrys loaded with computing features, including one that counts as the smallest device RIM has ever brought to market.

In a separate announcement, RIM said that it is adding support for Wi-Fi calling to its Mobile Voice System in a move aimed at helping enterprises trim costs.

Enterprise Mobile Today takes a look at the latest news from Research in Motion.


BlackBerry-maker Research in Motion has largely taken a backseat to Apple's iPhone and Google's Nexus One when it comes sexy new phone introductions. But RIM (NASDAQ: RIMM), which has a large, loyal following of business users and is still considered a corporate standard for smartphones, came charging out with two new models this week, including the smallest BlackBerry to date.

Separately, RIM also announced it's adding Wi-Fi calling support to its Mobile Voice System (MVS), a move designed to save enterprises money on voice costs and streamline the use of a single work number among desk phones and BlackBerrys.

The new BlackBerry Bold 9650 and BlackBerry Pearl 3G models are slated for release next month.
