Lotus Instant Messenger comes to BlackBerry

Java-based BlackBerry wireless handhelds from Research in Motion now support IBM's Lotus Instant Messaging Everyplace 3 application, allowing corporate users to chat, receive alerts and access contact lists behind the company firewall.

The messaging capabilities are designed to help mobile workers access corporate resources while on the move, the companies said, while still benefiting from behind-the-firewall security and message logging.

Users of the Everyplace application will be able to see when contacts are online, chat, receive e-mail, IM and SMS alerts, and edit their profiles. The software offers signal name and password sign-in as well as multilingual support.

RIM's BlackBerry devices already offer wireless e-mail, phone, SMS, organiser, web and internet applications. The addition of corporate messaging from IBM Lotus draws on the popularity of IM in the workplace.
