Research in Motion (RIM) has improved its support for IBM's Lotus collaboration software suite with products designed to simplify access and support social networking.

"Just as RIM securely mobilised Lotus Domino email on the BlackBerry platform, we are mobilising collaboration and social networking for businesses," said David Yach, CTO for Software at Research In Motion, speaking at the Lotusphere conference in Orlando.

The company introduced three products:

The BlackBerry Client for IBM Lotus Quickr provides content sharing, allowing BlackBerry users to navigate IBM Lotus Quickr libraries and folders, upload, preview or download content and edit files within Quickr's version controls.

The BlackBerry Client for IBM Lotus Connections extends IBM Lotus Connections onto the BlackBerry smartphone. RIM said it integrates IBM Lotus Connections with the phone, email, browser, tasks, contacts and camera applications on the Blackberry smartphone.

RIM has also developed a server component called the BlackBerry Social Networking Application Proxy server, which RIM said can be used to manage mobile data costs.
