Nokia users connect with RIM push e-mail
Nokia is to enable its corporate phone users to use RIM's Blackberry push e-mail service.
The move follows the decision by mobile operating system company Symbian to support RIM's Blackberry Connect platform. Nokia is a majority shareholder in Symbian.
Push e-mail allows messages to be sent to mobile devices over a network once they have been received by an e-mail server.
The Symbian-driven devices will be the Series 80 models and the first product using the system will be the Nokia 9500 Communicator smartphone from next year.
Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Domino e-mail servers are supported by Blackberry, and Novell's Groupwise is expected to follow.
