A new product from Research in
Motion is offering a low cost opportunity for businesses with an existing
Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft Small Business Server to take advantage of the
features offered by BlackBerry.
The BlackBerry Enterprise Server
Express provides smartphone business features with no software licensing fees
or additional per user licence fees and works with any internet-enabled
BlackBerry data plan or a BlackBerry enterprise data plan.
The new product is a lower-cost
alternative for businesses wanting to manage BlackBerry smart phones that
employees purchase and pay for, but use for work purposes. It is currently only
available in English, with foreign language versions coming online over time.
