Great news for older Palms… or Treos. While applications like Chatter and Snapper can do email even with the added security of SSL, many companies are supporting blackberry only for remote access. This will certainly change that and give users and IT departments a nice choice.
Research In Motion (RIM) said Monday that it will offer a version of its BlackBerry Connect software that will enable older Palm OS devices to access always-on e-mail.
Specifically, the company said it was working with Palm OS vendor PalmSource to make the software available in the aftermarket for existing Palm devices. The companies previously announced that BlackBerry support was being built into the latest version of the Palm OS. [Mobile Pipeline]
