    Smile RIM to Axe BPS and Blackberry Unite???

    Advertisement



    This is definitely not Rim's normal implementation of software. However according to the berryreview story (link below) it may soon be the end of life for Blackberry Unite as well as Blackberry Professional Service. For those unfamiliar with these BPS is a watered down low end version of BES targeting smaller businesses. Blackberry Unite allowed sharing of contacts, calanders, etc for small business and families. Per the article both will be discontinued this July and support will discontinue in 2010.

    This is so not like RIM! They are usually so dependable and follow thru with everything, sometimes quicker than others, but they always do!

    Oh well maybe the newer cheaper BB service (see here: http://forums.pinstack.com/f227/bis_2_6_on_the_way-102447/) will be the better money maker!

    4000th post! Yay!

    You know... That is a bit disappointing... Especially I was considering using unite with a handful of friends... But here's the thing... Maybe they have something better up their sleves...

    I can see why they are discontinuing BlackBerry Unite. There is a thread floating around the Stacks about BB Unite because people were unable to uninstall it from their PC's if they didn't like it or need it. Not sure why BPS is being axed.
