It may not be the most fascinating development to hit RIM's platform, but hey, considering that BlackBerrys are still the device of choice for a great many of the world's businesses, every little bit of work-oriented software helps, we suppose. Alongside RIM's platform enhancement announcement
came news that the company would be tying up with Lotus to bring its Connections business social networking platform (an oxymoron? you decide) to BlackBerry devices later this year. The suite will let users collaborate on work-related stuff, get in touch with contacts across the company, and hopefully, promote their garage bands. No word just yet on what models will support the new goods.
